Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel Topping

Fall is my favorite time of the year! (Well, I say that about every season… but right now Fall is definitely top of the list!) My heart gets so happy when the leaves begin to change colors. I keep finding myself wondering “How lucky are we that God created our world to be so extravagantly detailed and beautiful?”  This time …

Chicken Brunswick Stew

Cold and snowy winter days in my house are meant for wearing my Christmas jammies, sipping endless cups of french-press coffee and dancing to the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack while I try out new recipes.   After being snowed in for days, living on coffee and homemade cookies, something warm and healthy started sounding delicious.   This soup was the …

Meet My Bridesmaids

A few weeks ago, I had the honor and delight of asking nine of my closest friends if they would stand with me on the most important day of my life -as my Bridesmaids. Marrying my best friend is the greatest gift God has given me- and knowing I’ll be sharing it with my dearest friends …

One of my favorite things about Bloomington summertime is waking up early on Saturday mornings to go to the Farmer’s Market with my best friend (my Mom!). The local Farmer’s Market is a Bloomington MUST! It is filled with everything from organic fruit and veggies to farm-raised meats and eggs- live music and bouquets of …

Grannie Hudson Pie Crust (Peach Cobbler)

My great grandmother, Grannie Hudson, taught my Papaw how to make this crust when he was a boy, who then taught my mom. Every Thursday night while my Grandma was getting her hair done at the beauty shop, my mom and her dad would bake a pie using Grannie Hudson’s crust.     Through every holiday …
