You know how people say that you should leave well enough alone?  Well this is an example of a time when those people were wrong.  I’m all for a traditional deviled egg, but sometimes you can make good even better.  The addition of pork products almost always helps achieve near perfection.  Case in point?  Cajun […]

For the love of pumpkin

I bought in bulk. And while we’re at it.. here’s my list of things that are 100% appropriate to buy in bulk: Cases of wine.  For the discount, obviously.

Pumpkin happiness.

Seasons… what are those again?  Pretty sure I wore my bikini like a week ago and am still paying an arm and a leg to run the AC in my house like 24/7 soooooo, not really sure what this “fall” thing is that people in other parts of the country keep referencing?  “Fall” means different […]

Get saucy.
