No, unfortunately this is not the page where I tell you what to do with all of your leftover food from last night’s dinner. This is a page where I share my leftover thoughts. To see my latest adventures, my thoughts on faith and family or any other non-recipe snippets of my life, this is the place to be!

I'm on vacation this week in Charleston soaking up some beach time, savoring these moments with the Mr. before the baby comes, and eating ALL THE HUSHPUPPIES. In my mind the perfect vacation involves two things: good food and good reads. If the weather's bad, the hotel kind of sucks, and the beach is crowded Read More

26 Week Baby Bump!

My goodness. Another month has disappeared before my eyes. Where is the time going? And why do beautiful, sunny days seem to go so much faster than dreary, rainy ones? And why aren't all jeans made like maternity jeans? I never want to see another zipper in my life. Stretchy waistbands FOREVER! Here we are on Read More

Winter dealt out its worst for us in February, but despite the less-than-ideal weather, this month FLEW by around these parts. In this month's leftovers post I'll recap our trip to Dallas and Austin, share some great reads, and throw in a few of my other favorites from the month! We started off this month Read More


I've been keeping a little secret the past few months, and I'm about ready to bust! I'm so happy to finally be able to let you all in on the very best news. We are expecting a baby! We are thrilled, terrified, excited, anxious, and overwhelmed with gratitude and joy. I've been itching to talk Read More

February totally snuck up on me this month, so I'm a bit late with the Leftovers. I'm still scribbling 2014 on documents, and the first month is already gone! Here's a little taste of what I've been reading, eating, and doing lately. I'd love to hear what the highlights of your January were. Hit me Read More

Ah, December. Christmas lights, presents, the Pentatonix Christmas album, and SO MUCH FOOD. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. We had a great time with family, and even managed to capture this picture where we're all (mostly, kinda sort of) smiling and have our eyes open! Huzzah! The Mr. and I decided to Read More


I can hardly believe it's already time to wrap up another year of blogging. This year has brought big changes in my life, the most notable one being quitting my job to pursue food blogging full time. It's been a crazy ride since then, but I've loved every minute of it. Thank you for being Read More

It is a joy and pleasure to share recipes with all of you. Whether you're making a giant feast or ordering Chinese takeout, I hope Read More
