Mississippi Mud Cake Recipe & Southern Living Cookbook Giveaway

Mississippi Mud Cake

This Mississippi Mud Cake is out of this world delicious.  As soon as I spotted in the new Southern Living Classic Southern Desserts cookbook, I knew we had to try it.   My mama brought over some pecans just so we could make it ASAP.  Then Justin & I teamed up.  Well, I mostly read […]

Stokke Tripp Trapp High Chair – Review

Tripp Trapp High Chair

When it comes to infant products, I try to invest my money wisely.  I look for quality products that will last.  I research everything before I buy and always try to find the best value.  Two things I’m not willing to sacrifice quality on are car seats and high chairs.  I’m brand loyal when it […]

Seventh Generation Brings Natural Scents to the Kitchen #Giveaway

Seventh Generation Logo

In our first home, we didn’t have a dishwasher.  Let’s be clear: I hated washing dishes by hand.  So much so that I made a deal with Justin- if he would clean the dishes up after meals, he’d never have to touch the laundry.  For the most part, we kept that going until we sold […]

Need a Gift for the Guys? Enter the Sportula.


Buying gifts for men can be difficult.  The men in my life buy whatever they want, so there is never anything they actually need.  I like to find fun and useful gifts for my leading men. Enter The Sportula. It’s not a spatula.  Well, really it is a spatula, only way cooler.  My husband and […]

You are never too old for Hello Kitty.

I’ve loved Hello Kitty for as long as I can remember.  My mom would take me school shopping and I would pick out Hello Kitty pencils, backpacks, and clothing.  If it was made in a Hello Kitty design, I probably owned it.  My dad always said he thought I’d grow out of it.  Well, my […]

BEKA Bain Marie Review (Chocolate!)

Since giving up the microwave (something I’ve been meaning to post about) I’ve only melted chocolate once.  And it was a big flop.  I burned the chocolate and gave up on my dipped bananas in frustration.  I’ve worked with BEKA on a couple reviews before and I can honestly say that I LOVE their cookware.  […]

Play, Learn, & Snack with Dry Erase Placemats

I know that I’ve said it almost every post lately, but I’m going to say it again.  There is just something about age 2.  I never, ever thought I would love toddlerhood like this.  Watching Bryson take in the world around him, watching him explore, answering his questions, seeing his little mind ticking away with […]

Retro Kitchen Scales

I have been on the look-out for some retro kitchen scales.  I have no idea why.  I just got it in my head that I needed a scale to decorate with in my kitchen.  I was looking for a vintage one until I found this one.  It isn’t vintage, but it is retro and it […]

Beka Pancake Pan Review

I bought almost all of my cookware when I was 16.  I worked at a local grocery store and for several months they ran a promotion where if you spent X amount of $$, you would get a certain pot/pan for X amount.  Each week featured a new pot or pan, so I ended up […]
