homemade honey graham cracker and whiskey marshmallow s’mores

When I think of 4th of July, I think of ribs, fireworks and Georgia. When I was growing up, my family never had any strict 4th of July traditions. Sometimes we were on vacation, sometimes we stayed home and searched for a fireworks show, sometimes we just had brunch while listening to patriotic Aaron Copland…

link love

It’s FriYAY! via I’m off to celebrate some great friends getting married this weekend – enjoy these links of the week! This tumblr is hilarious.  Why did McCall’s patterns look the same for so long? So, J. Crew is struggling.  Bring back the basics!  But also, thanks for being trendy?  There are aspects of both I…

oatmeal toffee chip cookies

Happy belated Father’s Day!  Instead of working on this post yesterday, we spent most of the day and night with my family celebrating Father’s Day.  But, have no fear!  There is still a recipe for you this week! When I was growing up my parents shared kitchen responsibilities. They both cooked, together and separately, depending on…

  Hey there!  It’s hot out there.  Let’s pick blackberries from the woods out back then stay inside and look at links!

brown butter chocolate chip sea salt cookies

Cookies are my favorite baked good to make. I have a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe that I know better than the back of my hand and can make in less than 45 minutes, including baking time. Still, I love to experiment with additions and substitutions to make different variations on the classic chocolate chip…

classic granola

I have made granola about a thousand times. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration, but not by too much. Granola is one of those snacks that I can eat any time of the day and any time of the year. Granola is so customizable. It is easily altered depending on what you have on…

freedom hot air balloon festival

The first time I saw hot air balloons in person was when our family took a vacation in Jackson Hole, Wyoming a few years ago.  Early each morning we could look out onto a field at the bottom of the mountain and see the colorful balloons rise into the pale sky.  It was so peaceful to…
