Avocado & Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe

Acorn Squash stuffed with quinoa and avocado

I found this recipe on Pinterest when my family was here over the Thanksgiving holiday, and I decided to give it a try.  It was very tasty and healthy.  If you need a break from the heavy holiday foods, this is a meal for you.


Last Minute Gift Ideas

Copper Mug

We are celebrating Christmas in our house tonight before we head out on our holiday vacations.  I have enjoyed going out this holiday season because I could just enjoy and didn’t have to worry much about shopping.  I am not going to lie. I am a huge fan of online shopping, and I thought we […]


Christmas at Shaker Village

shaker village

Shaker Village is an attraction located in Pleasant Hill, KY about 45 minutes from where I live in Lexington.  It was established in 1805 as a communal society by the Shakers and lasted until around 1860.  (They were celibate and eventually died out.)  It has been restored and now serves as an education and tourist […]


An Industrial/Contemporary Christmas Tree

If you like a contemporary or industrial look, then you will love the Christmas tree I recently saw.  One of the added benefits of going to Christmas parties is that you get to meet up with old friends and make new ones.  Last week seemed to be party-central around here, and I was out and […]


Christmas In Quebec City

Christmas in Quebec City

Last year Yankee and I made the drive to Quebec City to explore its charm for Christmas.  It really felt as if we were in France, and we loved our holiday weekend there.  This year when our guests left the day after Thanksgiving, we hopped in the car and headed north again to experience another […]


Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Peanut Butter Fudge

Each year when I was a little girl, my mother made peanut butter fudge for me to take to my elementary school teachers.  We called it “grade school.”  She made the fudge using a cup of iced water because she didn’t have a candy thermometer, and it came out perfectly every time. (See note at […]


A DIY Gift

Apple butter

Jordan is traveling for work this week, and I am in charge of the blog.  After all, it’s the least I can do since she took care of it for almost a month when we took our last trip.  Even though we shared our Houzz Ideabook  this week that was loaded with great hostess gift suggestions, I […]


Christmas in the Kitchen

Kitchen Christmas

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, I am doing minimal Christmas decorations this year because we will be traveling.  However, since our kitchen already has plenty of red in it anyway, I added a little Christmas with some items I had on hand.  It’s simple with just the right amount of holiday cheer.  


Our Hostess Gift Ideabook

We realized that we haven’t yet shared our latest Houzz Ideabook with you.  We selected hostess gifts as our latest entry, and we came up with some great items.  We would love to give them, and we would love to receive them.  That’s the sign of the best gift, don’t you think?  Giving a gift […]


The Christmas Foyer

ChrIstmas foyer

Greetings, everyone.  I am keeping our Christmas decorations low-key this year.  Here’s the deal:   Jordan and Yankee and Mr. Right and I are going to be off of the grid for Christmas this year.  We have planned a big trip together, and we are focusing more on it than on decorating..  Plus, Mr. Right […]
