Random Thoughts on a Rainy Friday

Random Thoughts on a Rainy Friday

We’re having a rainy Friday here today.  Temps are nice.  A cool 62 degrees last I looked.  (Yes, that’s cool for Coastal Georgia!)  It’s been a quiet day.  A pajama day, if you’d like to know.  It’s been a good day for mulling things over, you know? Rainy days always make me miss Europe.  And since I just finished a great audio book set on a Scottish island, I’m especially missing it!  The book is The Cafe by the Sea…

Little Duck Diner

Little Duck Diner

It’s a rainy Sunday here in Savannah. We decided to try the Little Duck Diner after church for lunch today. We ran across it a whole back and have been meaning to try it out. We’re glad we did! The rain was really coming down. Not perfect when you have a 20-25 minute wait for your table! Thankfully we stayed pretty dry. Hooray! We made it inside! What a pretty place! I opted for the Fancy Shmancy Grilled Cheese. It…

Prep Dish: A Review

Prep Dish: A Review

Do I love Prep Dish?  Yes.  Yes, I do.  I’ve talked about it here briefly, but I want to give you the whole scoop on it today. I love to cook, y’all!  LOVE to cook!  What I do NOT like to do is figure out WHAT to cook.  Can I get an amen?  Or is it just me?  AND I’m a messy cook, so I destroy the kitchen every time I cook…and I cook a lot. And then, PREP DISH!!!…

Autumn Adventures – Final Update

Yes, this is way overdue!  Better late than never, I say.  Better late than never.  We checked off a few more fun adventures that I really meant to share with you, so I’ll do that now.  My official Autumn Adventures list and link to updates is posted HERE, if you want to peek back and see where I started! Item #5 on my list was to have my Christmas shopping finished before Thanksgiving.  That didn’t happen, and I gave myself…

Biscuit Debacle

Biscuit Debacle

Goodness gracious!   I pride myself on being a good cook!  I’ve told you the basic rules that my mom taught me.  Usually I do really well in the kitchen! Usually. I’m reading Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table by Shauna Niequist as part of a reading challenge this year (but mainly because my good friend Sheila, the queen of hospitality, recommended it to me).  It’s a LOVELY book, exquisitely written, and it includes some amazing…

Cinnamon Star Bread #bakealong

Cinnamon Star Bread #bakealong

One of my goals for this autumn was to do two of the King Arthur Flour bakealongs. Each month they post a recipe and invite folks to bake the recipe and then post a picture on social media. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, and I finally got in the kitchen and did it! The recipe for November was Cinnamon Star Bread, and it looked WAY too complicated! My mom taught me that I can cook anything…
