Link Party

Comfort Food Link Party Comin’ Up!

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

I realized I haven’t published a recipe in months and there’s really no excuse for that.  I prepared a lot of favorite dishes over the summer but never got around to photographing any of them.  I’ll just blame the general laziness of summer.  I made homemade garlic hummus and grilled artichokes with lemon aioli and other ‘sounds kinda fancy but really so simple’ dishes and I really do have to be better about sharing. 

So yesterday, I was craving one of my favorite comfort foods and I made it and I photographed it and oh my it was completely divine and satisfied my comfort food craving.  My taste buds were in heaven but my waistline is a little annoyed – there is an ongoing battle between them you know.

Now that fall has arrived I’m sure you’ve got a few great comfort food recipes to share so let’s have a party, mkay?   Next Tuesday, right here.

Bring your favorite comfort food recipe to the Link Party on Tuesday and then we’ll all take a nap afterward because that’s the whole point of making these recipes, right? 

Can’t wait to see what you cook up!

It’s (Almost) Fall Y’all

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Back to school time always brings on the images of fall, and while the August weather still feels like summer outside, I confess my mind is already thinking about all things autumn.  By September, I’ll be in the mood to do some transitioning indoors, which means it’s time for some seasonal decorating, and I’ve teamed up with my blog buddies Layla, Rhoda, and Sarah again for a round of link parties!

This year, I’ll be hosting the Fall Mantels party and the other ladies (plus Kevin!) are hosting outdoor decor, tablescapes, and easy fall decor, from September 18th through September 27th on Tuesdays and Thursdays, see the button above for exact dates and hosts.

To me, fall is always about bringing the outdoors in and the mantel is the perfect place for fresh clippings of leaves changing color.

When decorating a mantel, there’s no need to restrict yourself to the top mantel shelf.  Add that extra layer of pattern, texture, or whimsy with a creative mantel scarf or garland.

Layered artwork, branch hurricane sconces, and a magnolia leaf garland complete this living room ready for the autumn chill.
