Simplicity is sexy. It’s not just the alliteration that I love there… Think about it: some of the best things you’ve experienced in life are the ones that are left to stand alone on their own merits, unsullied by a barrage of crap attempting to allure you that manages instead to do quite …

What would a leisurely breakfast be without some strips of …

Morning Glory Muffins

KAF Morning Glory Muffins

Growing up in a house with a mom who bakes and blogs about it has really impacted my kids. Not necessarily in an abundance of goodies, though it cannot be denied that they probably enjoy more homemade fare than the average kid. Instead, my daughter has decided she wants to be a food blogger when …
