Currently – August 2019

I totally missed last month’s Currently link up. I was going to do a UK Vacay Edition and might still backtrack and do it.  For right now though, I’ll play along with this month’s prompts from Anne at In Residence. I am CURRENTLY… ordering:  espresso powder.  I’ve been wanting some for months now and finally ordered it.  Now I just need to bake with it!  Hmmmm.  Any suggestions for a chocolate recipe that can be amped up with espresso powder?…

UK Vacay – The Food!

UK Vacay – The Food!

Today I want to share some of my favorite meals from our trip to England and Scotland.  Poor England has a bad reputation for food, but we really do like most of it.  We’re all about pub grub! Speaking of pub grub, fish and chips is always a good go-to. Jacket potatoes (baked potatoes) are also a reliable choice. Let’s go ahead and address the haggis issue!  I decided that I really couldn’t spend a week in Scotland and not…

CharcuterWHAT?!?

CharcuterWHAT?!?

You guys.  Have you discovered the magic of charcuterie boards yet?!?  My first charcuterie experience was at Sweet Grass Dairy‘s Cheese Shop in Thomasville, Georgia.  I was smitten.  Cheeses.  Jams.  Pickles.  Nuts.  Oh, man! Lately I’ve started creating my own charcuterie boards for my evening meals on days when I’m hungry, don’t want to cook, and want to keep things super simple.  I use a small bamboo cutting board, and I add berries, a few pieces of whatever cheeses I…

Voilà! The Good List – April 2019

All of these things are rocking my world right now, and I can’t wait to tell you about them! Did you know Steven Curtis Chapman has a BLUEGRASS album?!?  And it’s GOOD!  I’ve played it on repeat this week.  Some of the tracks are his earlier works that he’s spun in a bluegrass direction.  Some are old hymns.  Check out the new ending to “Cinderella!”  (Makes my heart so happy!)  My faves:  “My Redeemer Is Faithful and True” and “How…

Currently – April 2019

Each month I link up with Anne’s Currently challenge.  She provides five prompts, and participants share what they’re currently doing relative to those prompts.  I enjoy writing these, and I hope you enjoy reading them!  It’s fun to see how everyone interprets the prompts and replies to them. This month’s prompts are experiencing, appreciating, wish listing, posting, and considering.  I am CURRENTLY… experiencing spring in Georgia, both the good and the bad of it!  There’s nothing like all the shades…

Voilà! February 2019

This mid-winter time of year can be tough, y ‘all!  The cold.  The dark.  The sickness.  The dark.  The post-holiday letdown.  The dark.  These things can drag us down.   Today I want to focus on things that I’m loving right now!  “The Good List” as Tsh Oxenreider calls it! Salt Fat Acid Heat, a documentary on Netflix.  This stunningly beautiful show whisks me off to different parts of the world and explores the basics of good cooking.  Since travel and…
