Recently I had been training for my first 5K this upcoming September. But God has revealed his plan for a much grander event, coming this Winter.
I love squash. It’s delicious! I love the subtle nutty flavor, the yellow color, and I really appreciate all the wonderful health benefits. Yellow squash is a good source of vitamin C and vitamin A, magnesium, fiber, folate, copper, riboflavin and phosphorus.
My family, however, does not like squash. That’s okay. This Sneak Attack Mac and Cheese makes sure they get a dose of this very good-for-you vegetable.
I have officially lost my taste for driving in the city. I can’t handle it! This past weekend I drove over to the big city of Austin, Texas for a MommyCon Mini. It’s been years since I’ve driven in a city with more than 20,000 people in it. Anything bigger than a two-lane road makes my palms sweat. I was a little freaked out when I merged into the flow of traffic as I entered Austin.
My Nanny, Wanda Whiteley, was an amazing cook. She was an amazing woman. Born just after the Great Depression into a poor family with several siblings, her life as a child was not easy. Because she struggled with severe asthma and was not healthy enough to walk miles to school every day she stayed home and taught herself to read and write. She was loving, supportive, funny and wonderful. I miss her very much.
A few years before she died she took the time to write out several of her favorite recipes by hand into a small spiral notebook. She gave this to me for a Christmas present and I treasure it to this very day. She had terrible arthritis and it hurt her dearly to painstakingly write out each recipe. This Buttermilk Pie recipe was included and it remains a family favorite.
Nothing would have pleased my Nanny more than to know that her recipes were shared and loved. I’m so proud to post this here on our site and share it with y’all.

Is there anything more wonderful than a warm, chewy, chocolate chip cookie? I don’t think so, my friend. Nothing makes you feel more cozy than a pan full of freshly-baked cookies. I’m picky about my cookies. I want them to be buttery, moist, chewy with a hint of crisping around the edges and packed full of chocolate chips. In the past I’ve made them from scratch – but now that I’ve discovered how easily I can get the same homemade results using boxed cake mix my world has been forever changed!
