November 19, 2014 duchessoffork 0

40 Weeks is a brand-new documentary all about pregnancy (one of my favorite topics!). The film follows several women, week-by-week, throughout their entire pregnancies and deliveries. Previewing the movie felt more like chatting with girlfriends for an hour and a half. I laug …

November 13, 2014 duchessoffork 1

Baking cookies from scratch is one of my greatest joys. My kids love nothing more than helping me mix, stir, and lick the beaters, of course. When I’m pressed for time, or just in the mood to shake things up, I use cake mix to make cookies. Have you ever tried this litt …

A Very Busy Fall, Y’all

November 10, 2014 duchessoffork 2

Goodness, the last two months have been one heck of a whirlwind. I feel like our feet haven’t touched the ground since summer ended. Our fall has been jam-packed. I’ve been stretched as thin as one can be, but the blessings are abundant. Jason and I kicked off Sep …

Easy Homemade Peanut Butter

October 2, 2014 duchessoffork 1

I’m not sure why I waited so long to make my own peanut butter. I’m fairly certain that our family keeps the peanut farmers of America in business. We eat more peanut butter than anyone I’ve ever seen. We put it on waffles, pancakes, crackers, spoons, finger …

Tomorrow Will Worry About Itself

September 29, 2014 duchessoffork 5

My counters are cluttered. There are piles of bills, leftover GoGo Squeeze pouches, and mismatched socks as far as the eye can see. I’m honestly not even sure what material our counters are made of at this point. I haven’t seen them in ages. My living room looks l …
