    Valentine’s Charcuterie Board

    Whether you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day, or having an at-home family gathering, a pretty charcuterie board is always a good idea! Keep scrolling for some beautiful charcuterie board inspiration you can easily put together for any Valentine’s Day occasion this year.  I used a very large old board because I love the look of old wood. I added some of our favorite goodies on it, including cheese, fruit, preserves, honey, olives, nuts, chocolate covered pretzels and of course mini cupcakes. A mixture of pretty much anything you can think of is appropriate! I even shaped the goat cheese into a heart for an extra little detail. I dressed up the board by adding…

    Valentine’s Tablescape

    February, also known as the LOVE month, is finally here! One of my favorite things about Valentine’s Day is creating a beautiful tablescape to go along with the holiday! It’s so fun to put together little details for your family and guests to enjoy.  I started with a runner. I used about 4.5 yards of pink chiffon that I bought from a fabric store. I’m a fan of using fabric or chiffon as a runner because so many “typical table runners” are too short. I love how this one drapes over to the floor making it a bit more dramatic and flowy! I added large glass vases (already had the vases)  of roses and floating rose candles.…

    Caramel Pie

    Here’s another recipe that’s been in my family for years! Apparently this one belonged to Nonna too (just learned that this year.) The history is Nonna was the pastor’s wife (wife of my poppa Russell who was the pastor) at a church in Memphis. A lady in the church gave her the recipe. Years later, she shared the recipe with my mom. This was a go to recipe my mom would always serve! Therefore, I grew up with it!  This recipe is very easy to make but it does take a few hours for it to cook. It can’t be left unattended because you have to keep checking the water level…

    Sausage English Muffin Recipe

    This is a very special recipe to me. I remember my Nonna making it when I was young then giving the recipe to my mom who would make it every Holiday.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and have a Merry Christmas! What you’ll need: 1 pack of sausage 1 jar old english cheese 1 pack of english muffins What you’ll do: First brown the sausage meat on…

    Christmas Traditions

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Christmas is here again! The holidays are always so special for Aaron and I. Every year, we try to make Christmas memorable and festive, even though it’s just the two of us (for now). Each Christmas Eve, Aaron makes clam chowder! This is something fun we started a few years ago and now we look forward to it every year. He even has his own little recipe he uses! We give each other new pj’s! This is something I started our very first Christmas. No shame – I even told him I needed something new to sleep in on Christmas Eve…

    Christmas Treats with Walmart

    Mark your calendars… it’s time for a holiday bake night! If it’s not planned, it most likely won’t happen since this is THE busiest time of the year. It’s important to set a date and time so you can order everything you need! Walmart makes it so easy for you and your loved ones to plan. From the ordering online to the curbside pickup, it’s seriously the most convenient way to get what I need during the holidays (and a pandemic)! I was able to text Aaron a day, a time, and order what we wanted for our holiday baking date night. Now we have wonderful memories to let years and…

    DIY Bottle Brush Tree Forest

Find a piece of wood you like, specifically focusing on the desired size, shape, color. We actually used reclaimed wood. It was originally wood on the top of an old desk! However, you…
