A Simple Walk Will Actually Improve These 6 Things

A Simple Walk Will Actually Improve These 6 Things

For some reason Fall, to me, means a time for reflection. It’s the season that I, once again, begin taking my morning walks through my woods to commune with Mother Nature. While on these walks I also make sure to take 15 minutes to meditate. When I take the time to meditate each day I feed my mind, body and soul. It centers me. It’s a reflection of what has past and what I can do to bring a more positive future. Have you...

Time to Buy A Blender Make Sure You See This First

I don’t know about you but a blender is one of the most essential kitchen appliances, well, at least in this household. I really didn’t realize how essential it was until the day it decided it was going to die. Yep, I was getting ready to blend my morning smoothie when all of a sudden I smelled melting plastic, saw a few little plumes of smoke and based on that I yanked that cord out of the wall anticipating a small...

Down Home South Carolina Cole Slaw

Down Home South Carolina Cole Slaw

Unlike its creamy counterparts, this Down Home South Carolina Cole Slaw recipe does not contain mayonnaise. The key ingredient to a signature South Carolina Cole Slow is mustard, yep mustard. While this easy-going version is wonderful with Carolina-style BBQ, it is also delicious with my Fresh Off The Grill – Blue Cheese and Avocado Burgers, chicken wings and other picnic or potluck favorites. For best results, soak the red onion in a mixture of 1 part water to 1 part vinegar for 10-15...

Fresh Off The Grill – Blue Cheese and Avocado Burgers

Fresh Off The Grill - Blue Cheese and Avocado Burgers

With Summer coming to an end I’m trying to get as much grilling in as possible before the cold winds of Winter hit. We are entertaining family this weekend so I decided on a classic, satisfy everyone burger. Who doesn’t like burgers, right? There are two things you need for super juicy, flavorful grilled burgers: Fat and seasonings. For the best tasting burgers, choose ground meat with a higher fat content. For example, an 80/20 ground beef is perfect for...

Bullet Journal Do You Want To Be Super Organized? Read These Tips First

Have you jumped on the Bullet Journal bandwagon yet? I came across it a few months ago when I was looking through Pinterest. It totally appealed to my list making, content scribing, doodling self! I knew I had to try the system out. I have been journaling all my life, well at least since the first time my Mom bought me my own journal complete with lock and key. Remember those? Well I was hooked. If I wasn’t writing in...

Broiled Angel Food Cake with Whipped Maple Cream

This weekend, Mr. R and I were invited to an outdoor party with friends. It was a covered dish type of party and I was assigned dessert.  Yikes, I’m not much of a baker at all! In fact, I don’t even eat sugar … well with the exception of a few pieces of dark chocolate on occasion. However, I’m also not one to stop at the bakery to pick up a dessert and just show up. It seems kinda rude...
