A Sweet Weekend

April 6, 2014

We had a crazy, busy weekend. For starters, we kicked off Baseball season with opening day. Between our two boys, we are geared up for 53 ball games over the next 10 weeks. On opening day it was approximately 40 degrees, but thank the good Lord there was  NO FRIGGIN’ SNOW, so I’ll take the cold […]

Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole That I Made For Dinner

March 2, 2014

Here in Charleston, we are bracing for yet another snow storm. Yes, I said, a-n-o-t-h-e-r-s-n-o-w-s-t-o-r-m. Hearing those words make me want to shove toothpicks straight through my eyeballs. The boys are making some serious snow tunnel plans and I’m just sitting here hoping that school officials make the cancellation call before bedtime so I don’t have […]

Cheesy Brown Sugar Pork Chops

February 25, 2014

For the past month or so, I have been trying at least one new Pinterest recipe each week. I have more than 250 pins on my “What’s For Dinner?” board, so I have plenty of options. Tonight, I tried a new pork chop recipe. Unfortunately, I forgot to get a picture of the ingredients before I prepared the […]

Top 10 Posts of 2013

January 2, 2014

When I first started this blog back in November, 2008, I kept a pretty close eye on the analytics. Now, I just take spells (I’m starting to sound like my granny!) where I’ll check on them every now and again. Yesterday, I received an e-mail from WordPress called “Your 2013 Year In Blogging.” I thought […]

Christmas Cookie Exchange

December 19, 2013

I had every intention of coming back here to report on my friend Becky’s annual cookie extravaganza. Because of our ski trip, I had to choose a cookie that I could bake within the time constraint I was under. In other words, after our three-hour drive home, I would have no more than three hours to bake seven […]

Trix Or Treats

October 31, 2013

I did something today that I have never done in my adult life. I purchased a box of Trix cereal. I have serious issues with the Trix Rabbit because years ago, “Trix Rabbit” was my nickname. Before orthodontic intervention, my teeth were a hot mess. Because of that, a couple of boys in my Jr. High (now […]

I Kiss Better Than I Cook

October 1, 2013

From time to time, I hit a home run. In the kitchen. Most days though, this sign, on my microwave reminds me to focus on my strong points. Last Thursday, though? I was a culinary fool. Now before you go and get all anxious thinking I have lost my mind because I’m posting a recipe […]

A Sweet Holiday Treat

December 5, 2012

December is my favorite month. It is also my birthday month. And, as of ten years ago, it is also Stevie’s birth month. And if that’s not enough excitement, it is also the month that finds me busier than a racoon in a trash-pile. During the Christmas holiday, our neighbors show their love by showing up on […]

Going Bananas

May 2, 2012

If you were around here on Monday, (or if you follow FITP on the Facebook) you might remember me mentioning that Stevie and McDaddy won first place in the father/son cub-scout bake-off. This win marks their third trophy in three years, but their FIRST first place award. I’d say these two make a pretty good culinary pair, […]

My Latest Culinary Endeavor

April 24, 2012

I know at least one person who’s happy about my sudden interest in Pinterest. It ‘d be the one who benefits from all the recipes I’ve tried since becoming hooked. I’m always nervous when I ask McDaddy his opinion on my latest culinary endeavor. Last week, I tried a new pork chop recipe. I typically […]
