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!!!…

Winter Adventures 2018

Winter Adventures 2018

If you’re a regular here at Out and Back you’ll know that I’ve been posting a list of goals/adventures each season.  I’ve had SO much fun doing this!  You MIGHT have also noticed that I didn’t post a Winter List last month.  I have wrestled and wrestled with this one; my brain has adamantly fought against making a list this season.  Winter has been and is going to be just a little different than other seasons.  Some pretty big things…

Currently – January 2018

Anne at In Residence is sharing today what she’s CURRENTLY starting, hoping, scheduling, reading, and playing.  Me?  Here are MY answers! Starting:  exercising.  I’m really going to do it this time.  Really.  *sigh* Hoping:  for snow!  Yes, I live near Savannah, Georgia, and yes, you read that right!  We are having the oddest weather situation today!  Temperatures are super low for this area (the predicted high is only 33 degrees Fahrenheit), and rain is moving in from the Atlantic.  Predictions…

Advent

Advent

  Advent officially begins tomorrow, Sunday, December 3, 2017!  I love this time of year.  For me it’s a special time of focusing on Jesus, His birth, and His promised return. I’m headed up to the attic to start bringing down Christmas decorations this morning, and the first thing I’ll be setting up is our Advent wreath.  I wrote about it last year, and I’d like to share that post with you again today.  If you’ve never celebrated Advent, or…

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…

Autumn is finally here!  Hooray!  Temps here in Coastal Georgia are finally down to the low 80s!  In celebration of this happy season, I’m linking up with the wonderful ladies of The Blended Blog for another round of “this or that.”  It’s a fun way of getting to know the person behind the blogger!  Let’s go! 1.  Favorite fall sweet treat?   All of it.  Fruity cobblers.  Gingerbread.  Candy corn.  All of it! 2.  Red, yellow, or green apples?  For eating…

Thinking About…Stopping for Grief

Thinking About…Stopping for Grief

You know how when someone dies everything should just stop? The world should just stop. We’re stunned with grief. Stop. Yet the sun shines; people buy groceries or go to work. It’s not right. My aunt died last week. I went to her funeral on Tuesday. We’re blessed in South Georgia to still have escorted funeral processions as family and friends move from the site of the funeral to the cemetery. Crisply dressed law enforcement officers stood at attention, wearing…

It’s time to plan fun adventures for the new season, y’all!  I did this for spring and for summer, along with some bloggy friends of mine, and it’s been a lot of…
