In all my life, I've never seen an upside-down cake that didn't involve some sort of fruit. Granted, I've only really been paying close attention to such things for about 6 years (egadders, have I been blogging that long?*), but still, have you ever…

I’m so excited to link up with Rachel from Oh Simple Thoughts today as a part of the Bread and Wine Project link up. The link up will be an opportunity for bloggers to share recipes and create community.
Rachel shared the following quotes on her blog last week to inspire a little writing:
"God never meant man to be a purely spiritual creature. That is why He uses material things like bread and wine to put the new life into us.…Continue

Bud and I eat an absurd amount of Mexican food. Since moving to Austin, we can’t get enough tacos, guacamole, enchiladas or any other food that falls under the “Tex/Mex” category. Luckily, Mexican food doesn’t always have to be deep fried and smothered in cheese. …Continue

This past week was our first real weekend back in Austin since the wedding. Because May was so hectic for Bud and I, we didn’t get much down time to spend with friends. On Friday night we went out with our sweet friends Nick and Christina. It had been weeks since we had shared a meal and caught up with…Continue
Charleston is full of courtyards, hidden gardens, and patios. From one charming path to the next, the historic district's quaint neighborhoods are perfect for a stroll in the morning, or a cocktail before dinner. Below are a few of my favorite spots that are uniquely Charleston.Continue
In my experience, summer's come around each year with a theme, something that sets them apart from all the summers that have come before. Last year was the summer of rediscovering - rediscovering a place that I loved and had been missing for too long, the year before was the summer of champagne cocktails- trying every possible concoction I came across. *Yes, this is one that should be revisited and one that you should try!* This year, this year is The Summer of…Continue
As a kid, I can remember always looking forward to licking the beaters after my mom made chocolate chip cookie dough. It wasn't until much later that I realized that it wasn't just me who thought the dough was more satisfying than the baked cookies and that many…Continue

One of my favorite stories from my mama was her description of a strawberry-picking trip in south Louisiana. My grandparents came to visit and they spent the day picking berries. I was just an infant and mama would tell how I napped close-by in the backseat of our Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight. Every time I cook with strawberries, I am reminded of that story.
For years, I worked to create a great strawberry pie for my husband. We weren’t fond of those with a…Continue

Hi, everyone!!! It's Amanda from High Heels to Hot Wheels. It's time to get barefoot, get in the yard, and get to gardening! Or you could spend money on some snazzy garden shoes or boots, but if you're like me, they just get in the way and my bare feet work just as well!
Nothing says super, simple Summer supper like this tasty…Continue

When people ask me which dessert is my favorite to make, I usually answer cheesecake, even though it's my least favorite to consume. There's just so much room for creativity, whether in the choice of crust, the flavor of the filling, or the oodles of…

A little while back, my father gave me an old set of pyrex mixing bowls that belonged to my mother. Sturdy, serviceable bowls that I saw millions of times throughout my childhood.
Yesterday was Mother’s Day, and I missed my mom terribly. As I was fixing dinner last night, I thought about how many meals took shape in those bowls. Biscuits on Saturday mornings. Cornbread for weeknight suppers. The dressing every Thanksgiving. Birthday cakes, cookies, brownies for treats. I close…Continue

The time has come to spend my afternoons after work and weekend days outside in the yard working in the garden, at the baseball field or sitting on the porch enjoying the awesome weather. I LOVE to cook, but definitely don't want to be stuck inside over a high maintenance meal, so putting as much in one dish as possible is definitely a top priority.
Roast chicken is not only delicious, but cooking the whole…Continue
There is supposed to be a food debate that has been going on for a year or so as to which is better: Cake or Pie?
Now, I love a good, moist homemade cake, topped with homemade icing. I admire those who can decorate cakes and cupcakes, a talent which I do not possess. I enjoy baking cakes and cupcakes, but, for me, the greatest baking pleasures come from pie-baking. Cake is chemistry. It’s…Continue
Love is in the air in Athens, Georgia lately ....well, at least it seems so. We've been busy making tiny jars of our pickles for lots 'n lots of wedding favors. Our most recent wedding order was from Atlanta wedding planner, Sarah Chancey of…Continue
