Recipe: Stovetop Candied Yams

DIY/ DIY Recipes

Believe it or not, the most popular way to make candied yams is in the oven. However, I have came to the conclusion that the BEST way (purely subjective) to make them is on the stovetop. I say this because the stovetop gives them the perfect softness in the middle and the slightly hard but caramelized edges. Read More

Recipe: Some damn good chili

DIY/ DIY Recipes

I cook almost everyday, but you wouldn’t know it because I don’t post them often to my blog. My reasoning for not posting more recipes is because I rarely measure anything and that makes it tough to explain to someone else HOW to make something. However, I made it a point to measure everything so that I can share my chili recipe with you all because it IS THAT good, damn good.

Travel: KOA Campgrounds; Cherokee, NC

Around The World/ Travel

I went camping quite a bit as a kid and really enjoyed it.  Also, when I was in college (the first go round), I worked for 3 months as a Girl Scout leader at a summer camp in Tallahassee, FL .  Somehow along the way I forgot how much fun it is to discover and appreciate the simple things in life, nature.  This past weekend I teamed up with Go Rving and KOA Campgrounds to take a couple of friends on a road trip to KOA Campgrounds in Cherokee, NC and share with my readers my awesome adventures!Read More

Teddy Graham Mini Cheesecakes

DIY/ DIY Recipes

A perfect cheesecake option for kids!!!


I created these treats because my daughter loves cheesecake!  However, we all know kids waste so much food!  My daughter had a random request for cheesecake but it just didn’t feel right buying a six-year old a big fancy cheesecake.  For some reason, this dessert, cheesecake, seems to be dedicated to adults.  I personally have never seen a children’s cheesecake.  I put a fun spin on it by incorporating Nabisco’s Teddy Grahams for the crust and toppings.Read More

Atlanta/ Travel

As your kids get older, you aspire them to start valuing experiences versus just things.  What better thing to do than to share this aspiration with other children at your child’s birthday party!  This year my daughter wanted to share her love for cooking and baking and have a cooking party for her 7th birthday.  How exciting?!  But where would we find the space to do such a thing with so many children, living in an apartment?  Read More

Atlanta Life : Krog St. Market

Atlanta/ Travel

I’m back with another post for my Atlanta Life segment on the blog!  This category is easily my favorite because I am a visual person (with a hint of auditory, because I don’t need silence to concentrate like most visual learners).  What better place to utilize my enhanced sense of vision than at a market place?  Krog St. Market to be exact!Read More
