Strawberry on Top: Sophie 8 Months

7 Month Photo Collage

I haven't had a lot of time to get into the kitchen this past week, so I thought I would share a Sophie update. Last month we had her six month professional photos made. She was actually 7 1/2 months because at 6 months she still was wobbly sitting up. I am in love with how they turned out! Devon at TADA Photography did an amazing job! (And don't worry I bought the rights to these photos). … Read More

Bakery Style Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins (5 of 6)

Yesterday I felt the urge to bake and had some blueberries to use up. I realized that I didn't have a blueberry muffin recipe on here, so I figured I better remedy that asap! I love how versatile this recipe is, you can definitely use the base recipe with other fruits or even try it without the streusel topping and use chocolate chips instead. This muffin is moist & cakey, but not overly … Read More

Cowboy Cookies

Cowboy Cookies (4 of 6)

I mentioned last week that my parents had a dessert party for some missionary friends of ours and several people were bringing brownies, cake, & pie so my mom asked me to bring cookies. These cookies have been on my radar for a while so I decided to try them. I was on my no sugar stint (which is over now, hallelujah!) so I couldn't try them, but everyone said they were really good! Adam … Read More

Southern Fruit Tea

Fruit Tea (2 of 6)

Growing up my family always got together with two other families every Fourth of July. We would always have a big cookout and go watch fireworks afterwards. One of the moms, Becky, always made the best fruit tea and I could drink it by the gallon! It was so sweet and refreshing! I thought it would be fun to make my own and I found this wonderful recipe. My mom was hosting a dessert party for … Read More

Funfetti Cake Batter Blondies From Scratch

Cake Batter Blondies (2 of 7)

Last week, we went to a potluck picnic meeting and I made these blondies to take with me. I had tons of sprinkles leftover from the funfetti cupcakes I made recently and thought these blondies would be the perfect way to use them up! For you all, I broke from my diet and tried a very small bite and these were fabulous! Perfectly soft, chewy and buttery, just the way blondies should be! Plus … Read More

Mahi Mahi with Avocado Salsa

Mahi Mahi (2 of 6)

Our neighbors graciously gifted us some beautiful Mahi Mahi filets recently, so I immediately went in search of a recipe to figure out how to cook it. This recipe was fantastic! We were going to grill it but turns out our grill was out of gas so I cooked these under the broiler and they were perfectly flaky and juicy. This salsa was the perfect pairing with the fish and gave it such a fresh … Read More

Washington D.C. Attractions


  As I mentioned last week, we had an incredible trip to D.C. There are so many things to do, and tons of them are free which is awesome! The first attraction we visited was the Capitol. We booked a tour through our Senator's office. Senator Bob Corker.  If you have a smaller group I definitely recommend going this route, it helps avoid the big line at the visitor's center. You can also book … Read More
