Weekly Meal Plan {February 1-5}

February 1, 2016 duchessoffork 0

I have been uninspired when it comes to planning our weekly menu as of late. The weeks seem to be getting busier and busier and the thought of cooking is unappealing most days. I’m trying my best to be creative so we don’t eat the same thing all the time. Any idea …

My Big Come Back

January 25, 2016 duchessoffork 1

I’m sure you’ve noticed that it’s basically been radio silence here on Duchess of Fork since last summer. Since that time, life has been a just little busy. We found out we were expecting our third baby (a sweet boy!), travelled to Paris, travelled to Disney …

I actually had the ENTIRE house to myself for close to 24 hours over the weekend and I really knocked out some meal planning and prep. Jason flew to Vegas for the big college football national championship game and both sets of grandparents pitched in to watch the kids Saturd …

August 17, 2015 duchessoffork 3

1. On an especially gorgeous day, drop everything and take the kids to the beach. No, it’s not an easy feat by yourself, and yes, they’ll get sandy, but they will have the time of their lives. 2. When you’re sure that every word they hear goes in one ear and …

My beloved Granny Flash will be 90 years old this October. I just love that woman and everything about her. Her memory is sharp as a tack and I could listen to her stories of days gone by for hours on end. Though she doesn’t get in the kitchen as often as she used to, & …

It’s hard to believe that the Fourth of July is just days away! Summer is definitely in full swing down here in Destin. Now that school is out, our days are filled with beach play dates, swim lessons, and countless hours in our pool. We love being able to walk out our b …

Totally Rad Gifts for Dad!

June 15, 2015 duchessoffork 0

Father’s Day is just a few short days away. I don’t know about you, but I find it very hard to shop for the men in my family. Jason, his dad, Tommy, and my dad, Ben, are all pretty easy going and humble men who don’t want or need much. They’re all good …

June 8, 2015 duchessoffork 1

I absolutely love a giant salad piled high with everything but the kitchen sink. Avocado, feta cheese, cucumbers, sunflower seeds, strawberries, I’ll take it all. And I’ll take it drizzled with a fabulous dressing. I tried green Goddess Dressing for the first time …

Quick Trip to Chicago

June 4, 2015 duchessoffork 1

Jason and I just returned from a quick and very chilly trip to Chicago. My great friends at Dr. Smith’s had me as their guest at the Best of Bump Club and Beyond event at the Swissotel in downtown Chicago. Jason joined me and we made a long weekend out of it. I had the …
