Tuesday’s Tidings

Tuesday's TidingsHers

1. Right now I’m craving warm, delicious cookies. I would make some right now, but currently my oven is cooking dinner. Now, if I had a double oven, I could be making these cookies.

2. We’ve had massive fog in our little area of the world the last few days. The fog burns off for about two hours and then it comes right back. I got the kids out of the house and to the park today to take advantage of the sun. It felt good to enjoy the low 60s, even if it was just for a few minutes….

Weekly Menu 1/26-2/1

Weekly MenuHow was your weekend? I hope it was sunny and beautiful. Our weekend started off with some bad news. Friday, early in the evening, I got word that my grandmother passed away. I was shocked – I think we all expected her to live another decade! She was 87 years old, so she did live a full life and I know she knew how important she was to all of us. I’m glad we were able to see her this past Christmas. We will miss her. :(…

Texas Sheet Cake

Texas Sheet Cake

Josh’s favorite cake in the whole wide world is Texas sheet cake. Why Texans get a WHOLE cake named after them I do not know. Why isn’t there an Oregon Sheet Cake? Hmm? That’s what I would like to know. Last year, for Josh’s birthday, I made this Reese’s peanut butter cup cheesecake and it…

Does anyone else shop at Costco? I admit, half of the appeal of Costco is the samples. Oh, my! I like to go when I’m hungry and need something to hold me over. Those sweet older ladies trying to sell those samples is just the cutest thing. That is until you grab a sample and then…

Josh and I have decided that we have too much stuff! Actually, I’ve been trying to convince him of this for awhile now. I’m always making Goodwill runs. For the longest time now, I’ve been trying to sell Josh on selling our upstairs desk. It’s a really beautiful desk, with an espresso finish and a…

Tuesday’s Tidings!

Just for this week, we’re doing something a little bit different for Tuesday’s Tidings. Usually we use this casual post early in the week to talk about our recent experiences, our family, movies we’ve watched, YouTube videos that are cracking us up, books we’ve read…you get the picture. However, this past week something came to…

I always feel like Martin Luther King Jr. Day should be in February because February is National Black History month. Don’t you? It’s confusing! I’m not going to complain, though. A holiday that my husband doesn’t have to work and there’s no school for the kids together with an opportunity to discuss an important historical…

Chicken & Mushroom Pasta

Chicken Farfalle with Mushrooms

I have this tendency to make my mind up about things before I really give them a chance. Let’s take movies for an instance, sometimes, for whatever reason, I’ll decide that a certain movie isn’t my cup of tea…before watching it. I may not like the actors in it or maybe I the storyline doesn’t…

Chicken Cordon Bleu Burgers

You guys, I have a confession to make. I’ve actually already shared this recipe with you. Many moons ago, when I was just a food blogger starting out and taking really bad pictures of food and not even thinking about food styling or if it even looked good. I was a “snap & go” (don’t confuse this with the bend & snap – hey, name that movie) kind of girl.

Out of pure embarrassment, I deleted the post a few months ago because I just couldn’t bare the sight of the pictures and having readers scrolling through my recipe archive and coming across this post and so, so, so many others! Truth be told, I would still be deleting all of those bad-pictured recipes if it weren’t for Josh telling me that every time I do that, I’m creating more work for him in fixing something called “broken links.” …
