Easter Brunch Recipes & Ideas

Easter is my favorite holiday to decorate for; brightly-colored Easter eggs, happy bunnies, fresh flowers...there's something inherently wonderful about seeing the first signs of spring after a long and cold winter.

Sunday Dinner: Grilled Pork Chops With Fresh Herbs

It's been awhile since Russ and I have sat down and had a nice dinner together. We've either been on the run lately or just too exhausted to handle cooking after work (which really means that we've forgotten to take anything out of the freezer maybe six nights in a row). But finally, I pulled … Continue reading Sunday Dinner: Grilled Pork Chops With Fresh Herbs

Sunday Dinner – Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin

This isn't an original recipe, but one that came from Paula Deen - Slow Cooker Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin. I had found it ages ago but hadn't got around to trying it. Well, we had a busy weekend, and I had a frozen pork loin leftover from New Years Eve, so a crockpot meal was … Continue reading Sunday Dinner – Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin


Sunday Dinner – Sausage and Shrimp Pasta

Hi there! I struggled a bit with what my first post should be before finally deciding I needed to grow a pair and just dive right on in. "They" say that this post will set the tone for the rest of my blog, and yeah, they're totally right - so what IS my purpose here? Well, it's about … Continue reading Sunday Dinner – Sausage and Shrimp Pasta
