Happy Thursday everyone! We are nearly into July and I seriously can't believe how fast this summer is passing!  We spent a glorious long weekend on Tybee Island with another family last weekend and it was amazing. Even though we were only there for 3 days, it was great and a total refresher!  It was also the first official vacation we have taken my son on, and although I was nervous, he did way better than I ever expected.  It was so precious watching him and my friend's daughter play together each day! I can't believe how fast they are growing up! In other news, I … [Read more...]

Honey Baked Goat Cheese

IMG_1773

While living in Greenwich, CT there was this little restaurant that we would frequent called Bang.  We mostly went there just for their fried goat cheese because it was a.m.a.z.i.n.g.  Well, eventually I moved, and I figured out that a lot of restaurants make delicious fried goat cheese. I've seen them in ball form and log form, and I don't discriminate based on shaped...they all taste the same {delicious}.  After we moved to Atlanta, my husband took me to this great restaurant, Ecco, where they are known for their Honey Goat Cheese Balls.  Of course I ordered that, I would … [Read more...]

One Pot Wonder Tomato Basil Pasta

One Pot Wonder Tomato Basil Pasta 1

When I saw this recipe a few months ago, I was very skeptical.  I mean, I have never seen a pasta dish cooked in 1 pot, without even having to strain the pasta.  However, if Martha Stewart is putting it in her magazine as an 'amazing' recipe, then I am going to believe that the people over there have tested it out and approved.  So, I added it to my menu plan a few weeks ago and never looked back.  A great thing about this recipe is that it's likely you already have all the ingredients in your pantry and fridge.  It's also very inexpensive, doesn't use a lot of … [Read more...]

How to Quickly Ripen Bananas for Banana Bread

Ripen Bananas 1

One of the first things I ever learned to bake was Banana Bread, and I feel like over the years, I have found the best banana bread recipe which I pretty much make it all the time.  We don't eat many bananas at my house, but I definitely buy them all the time. So, last weekend we were going to a BBQ and I had volunteered to bring dessert.  I had recently found a recipe for Banana Cake that was similar to banana bread, but more cake-like.  I decided to give it a go, but when Saturday approached, I realized that I didn't have any overly ripe bananas to make it! No!!!! How could … [Read more...]

DIY 4th of July Burlap Wreath

IMG_1437

In just a few weeks we will be celebrating the 4th of July, and I wanted to add a little red, white, and blue decor to the house.  Immediately I thought about our front door wreath and thought it would be perfect to spruce up!  A few months ago I made a spring burlap wreath on our front door.... It was so easy to make with this Burlap Ribbon, and I also loved how it would be so easy to change around for different times of the year.  I secured the numbers and flowers with wire, so they could easily be removed and changed out.  However, when thinking up a 4th of July … [Read more...]
