When I was a wee child around the age of 10 I went on my first and so far only Ski trip ever. I went with this girl from school and her family who were professional skiing folks. They offered to cover all the expenses & my parents were like sure… ! ha.

We were gone for 4 days- and went to Wintergreen Ski Resort in the mountains in VA. It was a interesting experience and I won’t lie; I was slightly nervous because I had never gone anywhere like that much less traveled with a friend that quite honestly I wasn’t very close to. I’ll sum my time up for you so I can get on to this grand treat of Fancy Hot Chocolate. I didn’t know how to ski. I had no idea how cold it would be to hit the snow again and again and again because I was not coordinated enough to actually make it off the bunny slope. I spent most of the trip with my friend’s Mama shopping on her dime and hanging out at the Lodge where I had to this day the best Hot Chocolate ever. Continue reading →

Redeemed.

Y’all! I know you are expecting a blog about some delicious cake or crazy good pasta dish. Please hang with me because today I just feel like sharing some truth about life as I know it and I sincerely pray some part of this meets your heart where you need it friend.

Brown Butter Cocoa Brownies

Browned Butter might be one of the best things ever created!

Browned Butter might be one of the best things ever created!

One day y’all I was making some chocolate chip cookies via American Test kitchen. They blew me away because it was the first time I’d ever experienced the glory that is brown butter! I have actually been calling it browned butter for a while and that is absolutely the wrong way! It works for me but, because I love y’all and don’t want you sounding as flighty as me, I’ll call it what it is.

Brown Butter. AKA secret to the best baked goods you’ll ever make. I love Brownies of almost any variety. Chewy. Fudgy. Cakey. With Nuts. Without Nuts. Almost always WITH Chocolate Chips. Continue reading →

Chicken Quesadillas- Just in time for Cinco De Mayo!

IMG_2470I feel obligated to say “May the 4th be with you” because, i’ve seen it all over today! I’ve never watched a single one of those movies but, hey, it’s cute! : )
