Best Cinnamon Biscuit Recipe Ever

Cinnamon Biscuits

A few years ago we shared a biscuit recipe with you that we consider the best one ever.  That is until now.  I have made a few tweaks to the original, and am thrilled to share a recipe for the best cinnamon biscuits ever with you today.  This all came about because I saw a […]


Update on the Porch for Fall

Fall Back Porch

Affiliate links are present in this blog post. My back porch has evolved over time.  First it was just a store-all room, and then when Mom came to town a few years ago, we painted it and put our own touch on it.  When you last saw it, the porch was home to a bistro […]


Kitchen Hardware Failure

Kitchen hardware failure

We always try to keep it real around here for you.  Recently, I got the bright idea to buy some cabinet hardware that would give our city townhouse kitchen more of a country kitchen look.  I looked and looked and couldn’t find the pulls in any of the stores here.  So, I went on-line and […]


Our New Headboard

New Headboard

I have a French sister named Madeleine. Well, she isn’t my blood sister, but we have been through so much together that we have developed a sisterly relationship.  She considers me her American sister, and she is my French sister.  She and her husband moved to Brussels for tax purposes after he retired, and that […]

New Plates in the Foyer

Foyer plates - The 2 Seasons

Jordan and I each recently painted our guest bedrooms (see mine here) the same color, and I made a mini-change when I was putting the room back together.  By simply switching the plates that were on the foyer wall with the plates that were on the guest room wall, I ended up with a fresh […]


Our New Dining Room Table

New great room table

Ever since we moved into our townhouse three years ago, I have been on the look-out for a new dining room table.  Although the dining table and chairs that we owned were investment pieces, the look was just too formal for our great room.  They were perfect when we had a formal dining room in […]


Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Pumpkin Bread

Fall is my favorite time to cook, and one of the traditional/seasonal treats I like to make is pumpkin bread.  I found a great recipe that makes either two regular loaves or one loaf and four minis.  It makes enough that we can eat one and freeze one for later.  Even though it is pumpkin […]
