So I’ve lived in Louisiana for almost 9 years and one of the most consistent requests I get is more information about New Orleans–where to go, where to eat, is it safe. The truth is that I’m not that close to New Orleans (by the way, it’s New OR-lunz, just in case you’ve ever wondered), but…

I know I’m known for being pumpin-obsessed during this time of year, and we also give apples a lot of love.  But you know what the most overlooked flavor of fall is?  The pear.  Make something with apple and it’s homey, casual, and nostolgic.  Make that same thing with pears and it’s fancy, decadant, and…

Happy Friday!! It’s almost Halloween! Is anyone else as exhausted as I am?? I feel like the week leading up to Halloween is busier, crazier, and more stressful (but less expensive) than Christmas. All the costumes. All the candy. All the parties. A new theme every day for Red Ribbon Week.  If you’re still looking…

I’ve talked before about how I don’t really love pumpkin spice, that I’m much more of an apple girl myself when it comes to fall flavors. I guess it’s not entirely  true–there are pumpkin-y things that I like (or even love). But I’m not Sara. I remember a time when there were pumpkin rolls and pumpkin…

I often share little peeks into my home on Instagram, and each time I do I get requests for a blog post with more photos of my holiday decor.  I don’t go completely crazy, but I do really love to change my decor around for certain holidays.  For smaller holidays like Valentines Day, Easter, and…

So can we talk about how opening canned biscuits is one of the single most terrifying life experiences?? The anticipation…the noise…the explosion…it’s all too much. As I was photographing this recipe, I started to take a picture and then realized to really maximize the impact, it should be a video. It was terrifying. I knew…

Pumpkin Butter.  I spent most of my adult life with little interest in pumpkin butter.  I think it comes from some deep-rooted scars of my youth after tasting apple butter for the first time and realizing it had absolutely nothing do to with actual butter.  (I mean, false advertising, right?)  But one time when I needed…
