There is something so comforting and pleasurable about a steaming hot, fresh loaf of homemade bread. As far as meals within the home, I feel as though there is nothing better. It can be simple or complex but today, we opt for simple.Continue reading
I truly wish I could share with all of you the beaming smile plastered across my husband’s face as we picked up our new chickens and toted them home.Continue reading
Throw pillows can really cozy up a home. I love them and I have plenty of them. However, I could not justify spending $25-$80 on a throw pillow. That’s when I discovered this trick!Continue reading
As many of you already know, wedding planning and your wedding day can be unbelievably stressful—chaotic even. However, me and my team took many MANY steps to ensure that our big day went off as smoothly as possible.Continue reading
I love homemade jam. It’s simple, requires few ingredients, and is absent of sneaky chemicals.
I’ll admit it, I am a messy cook. The type where you can’t see the stove/have a million dishes after dinner cook. I hate it but I come by it honestly. (Sorry, Mom!)
One of the items I’m about to talk about I had no idea even existed as I received it as a wedding gift, but it literally makes cooking so. much. easier.
The other I learned about through my momma and it involves bacon…lots and lots of bacon.
I cannot tell y’all how many times I have been boiled potatoes or pasta, walked away for TWO SECONDS, only to come back to an overflowing pot of boiled water. These seriously changed the game for me! No matter how much of a rolling boil is going on in cook-town, there will be no spillage.
A Bacon Pan for the Oven
That’s right, cooking bacon in the oven. First of all, WHY HAVEN’T WE ALWAYS DONE THIS? Why doesn’t everyone cook bacon this way? I have so many questions because it is literally so simple and way way less messy than pan frying. I also find I can get a more even crisp when I bake it in the oven.
So, take it from someone who learned the hard way:
You DO NOT want to use anything other than a deep-dish pan to cook your bacon in the oven. Why, may you ask? Because when bacon cooks it produces an insane amount of grease that WILL spill over when you try to remove the pan from the oven.
Or so I thought. This pan has the space of a cookie sheet and prevents grease spillage. It is also SUPER easy to clean. Go mom for this find!
June. This month used to mean relatively nothing to me…just a summer month off of school which usually meant dreadful heat waves and a lot of fishing. But now, it is so much more.Continue reading
My momma, bless her, she’s been an excellent cook my whole life. I think the think I love most about her cooking is how simple it always was. She could take 3 ingredients and make a whole meal, of which I would consume in large amounts. This recipe is seriously one of my childhood favorites and when it came time to cook supper last night I realized we were super low on groceries when I remember, I have some staples that I could whip this up!Continue reading
