When I was a little girl, my mom and I would go into Christmas shops. I distinctly remember the smell of cinnamon being in each store. Sometimes the stores would have hot apple cider to sip as you shopped. Those were my favorite. The taste and smell of spicy cider brings me back to those amazing times. We first tried this drink at our friend's wedding and completely fell in love. The crisp taste of apples and the hint of cinnamon will have you in a festive mood right away.

Today is an important day. Thanksgiving is the celebration of our country's freedom from religious tyranny in England. It is also a day of sadness for many. The genocide of countless native people occurred and cannot be ignored. As we eat our turkey and give thanks for the many incredible blessings, I hope we all will remember the history of this day. I hope we will share the stories we know, and not hide from our past. It is only the knowledge that we are able to grow stronger. We wanted to share with you a recipe that is traditional for the Alabamee Indian Tribe, who lived in what is now...

You guys know that I love some Jalapeno Honey from Garden Honey Bee, here in Alabama . This spicy sweet awesomeness has so many different uses. This year I had the pleasure of visiting their booth at the Market Noel . I adore the rustic design they have put together. John and Brenda are so passionate about their honey and it is apparent in the quality of their amazing creations. Market Noel 2015 at the Garden Honey Bee Booth Tonight I created an all purpose sauce that can be used on anything you like. We used it to glaze this roasted pork tenderloin and it turned out amazing!

We all have Christmas wish lists. Items we dream about having as part of our kitchen arsenal. Today we wanted to share with you a few that are on the top of our list! Stainless Carving Set Touch of Modern says, "Jean Dubost’s family, inspired by the traditional peasant tool, has been crafting the artisan blades since 1920. Surrounded by legend and myth, the Laguiole knife still carries the mark of its ancestors. A bee that is found engraved on all Laguiole products was originally part of Napoleon Bonaparte’s imperial seal. The blade, made of high-grade stainless steel, is stamped, then ground...

Today we had the privelege of enjoying brunch at one of the newest spots in Birmigham- Feast and Forest . Feast and Forest is a unique restaurant located in a quiet corner of historic Birmingham. As soon as we walked up to the store front, I knew this place had my heart. Feast and Forest is owned by the same talented folks who call themselves The Baking Bandits. I love their scones and get one as often as possible from Pepperplace Market. We love seeing their dream of having a store front come to life! And let me tell you how awesomely delicious the food was! I had the Farm Egg Salad. The...

This month I have decided to participate in the See Jane Write event, Blog Like Crazy! It has been one hell of an adventure and I have enjoyed it so much. I am also participating in an event with The Birmingham Girls Club . This is an Instagram challenge. Each day we post a photo based on the inspiration chosen for that particular day. Both of these challenges have been fun learning experiences. I have stretched myself beyond my normal bounderies. I even posted a photo of my own hands for the BGC Instagram challenge (which I never do, due to all of my old lady wrinkles). I have also shared...
