I have these absolutely spectacular god-daughters, the youngest of which turned 1 this past week. I have been blessed to make both girls’ birthday cake for their 1st birthday parties.
Here are a few photos of Maggie’s Candyland Birthday Cakes……………
My precious Maggie showing everyone that she is indeed now “1!” I love this little girl and her precious family!

***knock knock*** This thing on? Anybody still out there? I know! I left you high and dry! I’ve been holding onto this fantastic little morsel for several MONTHS now while I’ve been doing my day job which has been crazy-busy! I have wanted to share this with you guys for so long and haven’t had two spare seconds to get it all together for you. I meant to give it to you for Easter. Then I meant to give it to you for Mother’s day. And now, well, now you’ll have it for whatever day you wanna rock someone’s face off!!! Because trust me here! Someone is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO getting their face rocked off with this delectable little dish! Just check this out!
There was no way to adequately name this recipe. Honey Peppered-Bacon Pork Tenderloin on a bed of carrots, red onions and garlic cloves slow-simmered in Pinot Grigio…………So I just stopped at Honey Peppered-Bacon Pork Tenderloin. The real name should be: ”OH MY GOSH, I THINK I JUST WET MY PANTS THIS PORK LOIN IS SO FLIPPIN’, FLAPPIN’ FANTASTIC!“…………or something pretty similar anyway.” I had a pork loin that I wanted to do something a little different with. I didn’t want to grill it. I didn’t want to cut it into chops and fry them. So I decided to give it a rub down in some Wildtree Garlic Galore seasoning blend, then wrap it in peppered bacon an drizzle honey all over it. And well, it’s just about the best pork loin I’ve ever put in my mouth!!!! It was simply to die for!

Baby, it’s COLD outside! WHEW! I mean evil cold! The kind of cold we Southerners are just not built for! And this kind of cold weather begs for a big pot of soup or chili or STEW! Oh yeah! Beef Stew! That’s just what it’s begging for!
Ah, Beef Stew! Hearty! Rich! Delicious! And SIMPLE! When you add simple in there you’ve got the perfect recipe! Today, I’d like to share my own version of a recipe shared with me (and many others) by my friend and former boss Lisa. When I was a stay-at-home mom all those years, I worked for an online forum designed with moms in mind. Lisa shared this recipe over and over at Moms Online. It was a favorite there and it’s a favorite at my house to this day! It truly is THE BEST Beef Stew I’ve ever tried! Over the years, the recipe has evolved to reflect my own family’s taste and the end result is the Beef Stew you see above.
