Tasty Tuesday - Super Easy Pumpkin Bread

Tasty Tuesday – Super Easy Pumpkin Bread

My family has become slightly obsessed with pumpkin bread. It calls to me when I walk near a Starbucks, and always seems to find its way into my cart at the grocery store. But purchasing pumpkin bread isn’t cheap when you have five little girls who will eat a whole loaf in one sitting. I discovered a pumpkin bread mix at the grocery store and it was an okay substitute for the store bought bread, …

Margarita Monday - Pink Lemonade Margarita

Margarita Monday – Pink Lemonade Margarita [recipe]

It was a little chilly over the weekend here (for North Carolina) and my husband lit a fire in the living room fireplace while we watched a movie. We aren’t used to having a gas log fireplace–we have always had a wood fireplace–so we haven’t gotten the settings mastered quite yet. It got SOOOOO hot in our living room that I had to change into shorts and a t-shirt! With that dry heat radiating through …

Tasty Tuesday – How To Seed A Pomegranate (without squirting juice all over yourself)

I love the fall. I love the cool, crisp, sweater weather, the stunning leaves, Pumpkin Spice everything (except coffee, I don’t like coffee at all) and pomegranate season! I get so excited the first time I find pomegranates in the grocery store. I miss them after the season is over, so I tend to buy them all. the. time. when they are available. Thankfully our local Aldi has them at a great price, because they are …

Cold Weather Arrives, BJ’s Wholesale Club Saves the Day

(This post was sponsored by BJ’s Wholesale Club.) As I sit here in front of the fireplace with the kids, watching How to Train Your Dragon 2, the wind is howling outside with the temperature falling to 32 tonight, 20 degrees colder than normal. Tomorrow morning when the girls need to catch the school bus it will only be 27 degrees! It’s hard to believe earlier this week it was in the mid 80s. In the mountains a …

Mary Lambert Heart On My Sleeve

New Music from Mary Lambert: Heart On My Sleeve [music review]

If you’ve never heard of Mary Lambert, you will shortly. Her album Heart On My Sleeve dropped on October 14th and it is phenomenal! If you feel like the name is familiar but you can’t quite place it, let me give you a little refresher… she wrote and sang the hook on this 2012 Macklemore & Ryan Lewis song… and it transformed her career! After struggling financially and personally for years, the 25 year old …

Margarita Monday – Pomberry Margarita [recipe]

When I was in my 20s I could stay out until 4 am closing the bars in NY (crossing the border from CT because the bars there closed at 2 am) and get up at 7:30 every morning for work. We used to take turns being the DD (designated driver) and had a lot of fun getting the “boys” to buy us drinks. NOW that I’m…. ahem [no longer in my 20s], I find it very …
