Baked Chicken with Spinach

Hi guys, Well, this is most likely my last post until my “maternity leave” for the blog. I’m going to take a break to have my twinnies and take care of my Calvin. (And me!) I don’t know when I’ll be back but I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things within a…

Oriental Salad

Hey guys! Sorry for the slower movement of posts. That’s just going to be how it is with me feeling like I’m ready to pop with the twins and when they come until I get my crap together. (Will that ever happen or no?) Encouraging words my way, please and thank you. I’m 31 weeks…

Cheesy Grits w/ Sausage, onion, and bell peppers

Grits! An ultimate comfort food. I started making these a couple years back when I had Calvin. It was a complicated Shrimp and Grits recipe that was really good but really time consuming so I knew it wasn’t going to be made in the future if I didn’t simplify it. I have kept making it…

Lemon Vegetable Pasta

Hey everyone! I know it’s been awhile. We are actually in the process of moving to a bigger apartment right now- in 8 days! And I have nothing packed. I’m trying to balance school, being a good mom to Calv, keeping the house tidy, making quick and healthy meals for us, and being pregnant with…

Mexican Lasagna

Hey guys! Life has been the same around here yet crazy at the same time with the expecting of twins. We’re not able to know if we can move yet and when and where so I feel like we’re not able to prepare quite yet- and that’s so tempting to do because it’s so exciting!…

Eggzella

Hey everyone! Let me start off by saying thank you for all of your congratulations on our twin announcement! I loved every comment and made me love you guys even more. We really are so excited to start this adventure. Nervous, but excited. How can I say thank you?? Well, for starters I’ll share this…

Uncle Ben’s Chowder

This is a take off from my most favorite cookbook-Yum, by my family 🙂 Everyone has a family cookbook, right? Well, ours is the best. This Uncle Ben’s rice soup idea is from my Aunt Taunie but I’ve tweeked it to what fits my personal little family. I love this recipe because it is a…

Veg n’ Cheese

Wow, I feel like I haven’t really kept up on any personal details in my blog like I used to. But I feel like I finally have my feet underneath me. I’m sitting in our new house we moved to (new to us), it’s finally all moved in and decorated, my husband is at his…

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

I know that everyone probably has thanksgiving recipes being bombarded on them throughout their social media and I probably should have thought about doing a Thanksgiving recipe, but I didnt. I’m not to upset about it though because I do love this chicken noodle soup. Plus, it’s cold season and everyone and their dog is…

Thick German Pancakes

German pancakes, pancake in the oven, Dutch babies- all the same. I grew up with having pancake in the oven all the time just like this but when I got married and tried it on my own, it was never like my mom’s.  All the recipes are just so thin and maybe you like that-…

Homemade Pasta

Everyone break out your pasta makers! Ceth got me one for my birthday and I am so in love with it. I probably use it about once every month in a half or so but I’m starting to do it more because of how good the noodles are and how easy it really is. I…

The Southern Belly

I almost feel intimidated to write this blog post because I don’t know how to convey my love for this food! If you know me, I’m passionate about my food. Alot more than the typical person. We first went to this restaurant as luncheon for my in-laws wedding. It’s not what you would usually pick…
