apple, orange, cranberry sauce

If you’re like me, you’re not a big fan of the cranberry sauce that magically retains the shape of the can it comes out of. After avoiding this side dish at every pertinent holiday, several years ago, I discovered a Williams-Sonoma recipe for apple, orange, cranberry sauce and my family and I have never looked back. While I’ve altered it a bit from the original, trust me when I say it’s every bit as delicious as the first year I made it. I am very thankful for this flavorful cranberry medley and think you will be too. Happy holidays!

Recipe Review: Baked Fried Chicken

A friend of mine posted this recipe on Facebook and I was intrigued. I always struggle with finding good recipes for chicken breasts. I know they’re healthy–but I don’t like white meat and I feel like they always come out dry and bland. So by all means, if you have some good chicken breast recipes, please, let me know!

As my blog continues to evolve, I decided to start sharing more of the recipes that I try and love. I found this recipe on Pinterest. It traced back to Meredith Steele’s site, In Sock Monkey Slippers a...

Book Review: Cherry Girl

So Raine Miller surprised her fans and snuck in a book–who does that?!?! Quite impressive. Apparently, no one saw this one coming, including Miller. She said she didn’t intend to write the story of Neil and Elaina, but I for one am so glad she did! (And what a pretty book cover.) Miller is one of my fave authors and the creative mind behind the Blackstone Affair series, which I fell in love with...

Book Review: Dust

It is no secret that I love a good book series (a friend of mine pointed this out while we were lounging in Tampa a few weeks ago visiting another friend). One of my all-time favorites is Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta series. The characters are so well written; I love how they have evolved over the years, along with the story lines. We’ve seen one character, Lucy, Kay’s niece, literally grow up throughout the...
