Pearl beer always reminds me of my Granny. It was her drink of choice. Well, Pearl Light. Since tomorrow is her birthday—and if she were still with us, she’d be 100!—I thought I would share some news about her favorite beer. Unless you’re a Texan, you probably have never even heard of Pearl or Pearl … Continue reading Pearl Beer.
The countdown is on to what has become over the years my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. I mean, how do you not love a holiday dedicated to food and family and friends and football?!?!? Of course, it is all too easy to go overboard and completely stress yourself out: how to prep the turkey, how to … Continue reading Sunday Comics: Cooking a Turkey
Happy New Year! Okay, okay I know I’m a taaaad bit late, but…it’s still January, so I’m not that late, right?!?!? In an effort to not scream down the house or throw things at the television during today’s Cowboy game, I thought during halftime I might share one of those “getting to know you” quizzes circulating … Continue reading 60 Questions.
Sorry for the impromptu month off! It has been–to say the very least–a crazy summer. Not that I’ve been traveling, but rather, I’ve been visited by travelers (yay!). Additionally, it has been chaotic at work and there are a plethora of other things not even worth mentioning. Of course, I didn’t mean to be neglectful in my writing–I … Continue reading Aloha Summer Vacation!

Right. Yeah. I don’t like fish. Actually, no. I hate fish. Don’t write in and tell me how unhealthy that … Continue reading Fishy Friday
My favorite morning while I was at home started the night before with my nieces coming home with Momma and me. Unfortunately for Momma, she had to go to work the next morning, but it allowed me some quality time with the girls. Being the fabulous Auntie that I am, I let them sleep in … Continue reading Cooking with the Kidlets
Before I show you the delicious, amazingness that was my bacon, avocado blue cheeseburger (yeah, it was…wow…just simply wow), I have a little story to tell you about the last time I was home. About 16 miles from Fredericksburg is a slightly-hard-to-find-but-oh-so-worth-it restaurant called Alamo Springs Cafe. Their burgers and onion rings are quite simply … Continue reading STOP! Burger Time!
Today is my Granny’s 93rd Birthday. The changes that have occurred in the world in her lifetime are truly amazing. I’ve spent the last few days going through old pictures and one of my favorite is of Granny when she was maybe 2 in the bathtub. The thing is that the bathtub was actually a … Continue reading Granny’s Girl
