I’ve been craving winter food lately. You know the type: warm and comforting, with extra points for being buttery, gooey, or cheesy.

Tomorrow marks the first Sunday in Febrary, which means millions of Americans will gather around their televisions for the biggest sporting AND television event of the year. My mom always referred to it as the “Stupid Bowl,” and it’s been the name I’ve used ever since. Football just ain’t my thang. But I’ve always loved Super Bowl Sunday and other […]

HEY! IT’S FALL. Have you heard? If you haven’t, then it’s safe to assume you’ve been living under a rock. It always happens like this. I wake up one day, and summer is gone. Like, totally, completely gone. A distant memory. Almost as if it never existed in the first place.
This blog is about to get corny. See what I did there? I know, I know. Puns and corny jokes are kind of my thing! I get that from my Momma. She was the Queen. So, my birthday is on Saturday, and, well it’s a big one. The big 3-0. It’s not that I’m sad […]
