Butter Streusel Coffee Cake

We have spent the most wonderful couple of days up in the mountains.  We have been hiking, relaxing by the fire, watching movies and eating lots and lots.  Growing up, my mother would always serve Sara Lee’s Butter Streusel Coffee Cake as a side for breakfast when we had a house party up here.  She […]

St. Patrick’s Day Cookies

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!  We had a debate this morning at work whether or not you had to be Irish to participate in St. Patrick’s day.  Clearly, only the people who were not wearing green thought that their non Irish lineage made them exempt which was ignored completely.  And, despite the rain and cold and […]

We are on day 6 with the 5 kids, and I can’t believe how smoothly it is going.  Don’t get me wrong, I am exhausted, but so far, they are all alive, do not seem sleep deprived or malnourished and in general are pretty happy.  I could totally handle this every day- no, no I […]

Tomorrow morning our good friends and neighbors are heading out of town for 11 days.  Last week their babysitter had to cancel, so we are going to take their 4 children while they are gone.  I love these kids- ages 3,5,9 and 11 (and of course add Walker in who is 10).  They are exceptionally […]

Race Day Bananas

Tomorrow morning I am running my first ever race, the Folly Beach “Save the Lighthouse” half marathon.  Here is a picture of the lighthouse- who wouldn’t want to save that!  I am getting fairly nervous as it has been snowing and icing since Tuesday which means that I have not gone for a run since […]

Snow Day Pretzels

It is supposed to snow in Charleston tomorrow.  People are initiating emergency guidelines.  We are preparing for total shut down for the forecasted one inch of snow.  I haven’t heard anything yet about potential school closings, but I am getting prepared to have a rambunctious 10 year old home from school either tomorrow or Wednesday.  […]

Tomato Pie- Real Southern Charm

In the last two days, trailers for new television shows about South Carolina have been aired.  Please please please do not believe that South Carolina is anything like what is depicted in these shows.  The first one I saw (and I have been hearing about this upcoming show for a while) is called Southern Charm […]

Now Bring Us Some Figgy Pudding

I have always wondered about figgy pudding- what is it?  I do very much like the line in the Christmas carol about it, demanding figgy pudding is just kind of funny to me.  So, of course, I googled it, and while I don’t think it will make it into the holiday repertoire of traditions, it […]
