I am starting to get a little itchy around my neckline where I got a good burn at the first Clemson home game of the 2015 football season. It was the only place I overlooked a triple application of SPF 55 sunscreen. Last weekend was full of football, family and, yes, fun. (Can’t help but… Read More A little Clemson love
I forgot I knew how to make quiche until Mom reminded me. I was talking, well, really complaining, that I was running out of low carb ideas for supper, that I would actually want to eat. My husband loves low carb meals and I prefer whole grains and lean protein. So, I have to get… Read More Two-Cheese Italian Broccoli Crustless Quiche
I made these meatballs for supper last night, but these are far from the kind that take hours to make. And no one need know. My secret: pre-made meatballs with an easy homemade sauce. I add similar seasonings to my mom’s homemade spaghetti sauce but limit the quantity of sauce to just cover the meatballs.… Read More Three Step Meatballs

They discover a 100 year old department store to plunder and a hidden amphitheater that is showing a family movie at 8 p.m. tonight – Frozen. Around the corner from the park, they discovered a little… Read More College football, family and spinach artichoke dip
My husband lost 60 pounds by switching to a low carb diet. This is one of the recipes my hubby loves and my mother-in-law taught me to make. I have tried to make it just like her, with the exact same ingredients but it never tastes just like hers. So instead of going crazy over… Read More My mother-in-law’s hamburger pizza
Note: As I sat on the back porch swing this morning, sipping my coffee – lovingly prepared and served by my hubby with a little whipped cream on top like he knows I like it – I started counting my blessings. And couldn’t stop. We really are blessed by all that God has provided for… Read More Happy Fourth of July Weekend & Peach Delight!
I was hungry. Really hungry. So I started a quest from pantry to Pinterest and back to find out what I could eat – in a relatively short period of time – that would not only be good but all of the ingredients were already in my pantry. I happened upon this recipe for Mexican… Read More Killer Black Beans and Brown Rice – Thanks, Rachel!
In an effort to add more veggies to my diet, and inspired by a lone zucchini in the fridge left out of another recipe earlier in the week, I modified my chili recipe for this delicious alternative. Basically just chop and add a zucchini to your regular chili recipe to accomplish this feat, but here’s… Read More Zucchini Turkey Chili
My sweet friend and co-worker, Karen, shared her Zuppa Toscana recipe with me because she knew I had been craving it. (Pretty bad when you have been talking about soup so much at work!) To honor Karen’s fiery personality (she’s a saucy firecracker, I tell ya!), I used hot and spicy Italian chicken sausage from… Read More Zuppa Toscana: Karen’s Recipe
I present to you, Quick Ricotta Spaghetti, and I can eat as much of it as I want, without guilt. How is this you say? Because of Weight Watcher’s new Simple Start plan. Each item is a non-trackable item. I have lost 5.2 pounds since I started using Simple Start with the Simply Filling plan.… Read More Quick Ricotta Spaghetti
