Deep South “Dawg”

Deep South Dawg

  It’s grilling weather and you can be sure we’ve already had our share of burgers and hotdogs around here.  Great for weeknights because they are super fast, perfect for weekends – especially when you’ll be entertaining a crowd.  I mean, is there ever a time when these two classics AREN’T awesome?

Jalapeno Pimento Cheese Burger

Its that kind of weather… GRILLING weather.  I know some people like to grill year round. But even the non-enthusiast breaks out the grill when the weather gets warm!  There is absolutely nothing better than a homemade hamburger in my book!  Perfect for a weekend meal with a few friends or even a quick weeknight [...]

A Sunshine Breakfast for Annie

Annie Movie at Walmart

Have you seen the new Annie movie? We recently received it and I thought it would be fun to make it a special little movie MORNING instead of a movie night! Why a movie morning? When I think about the iconic song, “Tomorrow” all I can think about is sunshine! Maybe it’s these lines from [...]

Rockin’ Guac

rockin guac

This is the rockin’-est guac you’ve ever had.  It is a little different than the classic guacamole.  It is richer and creamier…and addictive.  I may or may not have eaten a whole bowl by myself.  I’ll never tell… Guacamole is best made RIGHT before you are going to eat it so that it doesn’t turn [...]
