Savory Pumpkin Scones

It’s Thanksgiving! On the one hand, thank GOODNESS because it’s my favorite holiday (I think) and no one is allowed to interview me for residency on Thanksgiving. On the other hand, it’s Thanksgiving??? Allow me to digress for just a hot second into the whole clichéd I-can’t-believe-it’s-already-almost-December thing. (more…)


White Bean Walnut Parmesan Dip

I made some resolutions.  How unique am I?  I decided to put them in writing here so you can hold me accountable!  This way, I can’t a) pretend I didn’t ACTUALLY make that one resolution, or b) quit.  I don’t want you to think I’m a quitter.  How embarrassing.

Are you ready for them?  They have absolutely zero to do with cleansing and everything to do with being joyful and staying sane.

(This is the 3rd post of ours in a row with a list.  Apologies.  When we write lists, we’re excused from the writing convention known as “transitions.”  Those are hard.) (more…)

Cheddar Sage Cornbread

Now that we’ve overloaded you with cookie recipes, let’s take a brief break and make some cornbread.

I’m a little embarrassed, because I’ve been meaning to share this recipe with you since, oh I dunno…Thanksgiving.  Remember that holiday?  It was only 3 1/2 weeks ago, although it feels like it was about 13 lifetimes ago.  Once again, I lost weeks of my life to learning about a single organ in the body.  This time, the kidneys.  I suppose I should just get used to this by now, but it still kind of amazes me how it happens.  (more…)

Pumpkin Mac & Cheese

I’ve been a Texas Rangers fan for basically my whole life. Over 15 years fosho.

If you’ve followed the Rangers at all throughout the years, you know that there were (a lot of) times when things were pretty ugly. Like 30-games-behind-first-place-by-July ugly. But, man, it didn’t matter to me. There was never and still isn’t anything that tops going to the Ballpark in Arlington and watching a baseball game with my daddy. I love the Rangers’ organization with all my heart, and my love has only intensified over the years.

When they started to win, man, did I feel validated.

And when they lost the World Series two years in a row, man, did I feel crushed.
