Mini Breakfast Ideas

Here’s an idea: Make a breakfast dish that you can eat throughout the week and that is easily grab-and-go! That way, you’re not stuck at work or chasing your kids grabbing whatever is handy to eat as a snack. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t get a substantial breakfast, I will be […]

Spring/Easter Muffins

Spring is here, and we’ve definitely been experiencing the April showers here in North Carolina. But, we’ve also had some gorgeous 70-degree days which I’m holding on to and enjoying as much as possible (even if that means I have to inhale pollen). I really do love the month of April.

2 Secrets to a Great Brunch

Today, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. In fact, I’m going to share my two secrets to hosting a great brunch. Probably like you, I’ve had my fair share of brunches. And holiday brunches are those of legend in my family. We always woke up super early to open presents on […]

Oatmeal To-Go

Well, a glorious thing happened today. The weather was 70 degrees, and the sun actually came out! I know! What is this? Spring or something? I am so ready for spring, but it looks like we might still have a bit of winter (thanks, Punxsutawny Phil). In that case, we’re going to need some comforting breakfasts […]

Simple Saturday: Grits

I still can’t believe that some people in the South haven’t tasted grits. If you’re one of those people, then you probably don’t live in North Carolina because we’ve got grits everywhere around here. Whenever I married my husband, we had shrimp and grits at our wedding, and his family had never had grits before. […]
