Recipe: Easy Peach Cobbler

We finally got some rain in Southern California, woohoo! Albeit nowhere near enough to pull us out of this drought, at least Mother Nature is trying to help. Here, rain in the summer is incredibly rare! Because hitting up the beach wasn’t really an option, we all had to find other ways to spend our…

Recipe: Chicken & Broccoli Stir Fry

I’ve always been totally obsessed with beef & broccoli. Even as a kid, it was probably the ONLY way my mother could convince me to eat a few pieces of broccoli. Whether my momma was making it from scratch or we were ordering some take out at good, old Panda Express, this stuff was good….

Recipe: Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe: From Fruit to Dessert in Seconds

Strawberries and sugar go together like cheese and wine. What about cheese, strawberries, sugar AND wine? Ooooh la la. I really do love snack time. Let’s get real though– who doesn’t!? So a few years ago, Brittles and myself were living in a torn up, crappy little town just south of our hometown. Let me…

Recipe: Cinnamon Brown Sugar Banana Pancakes

There are few things better than waking up in the morning to a stack of pancakes smothered in warm maple syrup towering higher than your cup of steaming hot coffee. I wish this was a reality every day of the week, but working a full time job keeps you off the stacks unless you want…
