White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Fall!
It’s a gorgeous day in South Louisiana. It’s not a bazillion degrees outside, the humidity is down, and everyone is putting Halloween decorations out.
It’s a mommy and kiddos day, so I’m taking a break from writing and editing (for now) and the kids and I have been doing one of our favorite pastimes… Baking!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall is my happy time.

It’s my favorite time of the year and I love everything about it. It’s Labor Day Weekend, the official end of summer, but for me… it’s been Fall for over a week. Continue reading

Painted Mailboxes for Good School Behavior!

Both of my babies will be attending school full time, starting next week.

Whoo hoo. Confetti. Streamers. Loud music and me dancing around with no “sound limits”!

While I took my little leprechaun with me to grab his school supplies this morning, we were scrounging through Hobby Lobby, and I came across these cute little cardboard mailboxes.

We were there to get a canvas bag, but left with a buggy full of goodies. (Shaking my head. That store should be off limits to me!)

Crawfish Etouffee (Crawfish Stew)

Being from the South, Lent is a big deal to us.
And on Fridays during Lent, even people who are not Catholic tend to stay away from meat because the seafood offerings are so divine.
One of my favorite Louisiana dishes is Crawfish Etouffee. It can also be made with fresh Gulf shrimp. (Some people call it Crawfish Stew)
If you ever made it down to where the black trees grow (Louisiana), make sure you try this dish.
Or you could just make it!
(But use Louisiana crawfish, not Chinese) Continue reading

Chick Lit and Globs

Who knew my love of reading, my newly formed Book Club (because nothing is more fun than finding out people other than you have your reading tastes and getting FREE books loaned, right), and my love of cooking/baking would all come together?

Some friends of mine with the same eclectic reading tastes as myself recommended a series of light books 2 days ago.
After staying up late, reading in the jacuzzi at night, during nap time during the day, and during Carpool, I am on the 3rd and final book in the series and I’m feeling inspired. Continue reading
