Cake Mix Buttermilk Pound Cake

I’m still stuck on those delicious, juicy peaches.  I can’t help it…they were just so good!  While the peaches lasted, they had my kitchen smelling so sweet and peachy, I just had to make a pound cake to eat with them and vanilla ice cream…but I didn’t want to do a lot of work.  My cake […]

Chipotle Lime Steak | Cinco de Mayo

  One of my favorite holidays is Cinco de Mayo, and I’ll admit shamelessly that it’s all for the food. This year for our Cinco de Mayo feast, the star of the show will be this Chipotle Lime Steak for tacos or burritos. I concocted it for a trial run this weekend, and it was […]

A Spring Snack Mix | Weekend In Pictures

I got a new camera!  I’m so excited I just can’t see straight. It’s actually only new to me, but it is a far cry better than my iPhone 4s camera, which is what I’ve been using. I snapped pictures all weekend with said camera, including some of my cute Spring snack mix, which we’ll […]
