Weekly Meal Plan {May 4-8}

May 4, 2015 duchessoffork 1

Monday again…but only three more Mondays of the school year and then I’m a full time SAHM again! In that case, Monday isn’t so bad. The weather here has been just perfect and we’ve been soaking up every drop of sunshine. This past weekend we went to th …

Our New Home {First Glance}

April 30, 2015 duchessoffork 11

It’s no secret that we move often. My husband became a general contractor in 2010 and has been creating gorgeous custom homes ever since. We are often the guinea pigs, as we move from house to house, waiting for them to sell. The packing and moving part is no fun, but s …

Spicy Bacon Cheese Ball

April 23, 2015 duchessoffork 2

I’m always searching for new appetizer ideas. We love to entertain, or constantly find ourselves attending functions for this or that, and I get tired of the same old dips. I tried this cheese ball at an Easter egg hunt and was hooked! So many cheese balls are simple an …

Happy Monday! It’s been a while since I’ve shared our menu, but I promise I’ve been planning them. I just haven’t been posting. Weeks are getting busy and flying by at record rates. Now that the days are longer and warmer, we’re getting out and a …

Before we cruised with Disney, friends and family gave us lots of advice. Jason and I love to cruise, but this was the first time we’d traveled anywhere with our kiddos. Our amazing travel planner sent us a novel of helpful information. Even still, you just don’t …

You know how they say you should never shop for groceries on an empty stomach? Well, take it from me, you should never pin spring supper ideas on an empty stomach, either. There are so many gorgeous food photos floating around the internet and I want to eat them all! Spring h …

Disney Cruise Highlights

March 30, 2015 duchessoffork 2

We’re back! After a whirlwind week at the Magic Kingdom and on board the Disney Dream, we’re back on solid land. Our trip was lots of fun, but pretty exhausting with two little ones. I plan on sharing plenty of details and dos and don’ts soon, but for now I …

Kitchen Staples

March 18, 2015 duchessoffork 2

A few weeks back I hosted a cooking class with my mom. We had about 15 of my girlfriends over to the house and covered the basics. Pantry staples, meal planning, and easy weeknight suppers. The resounding theme from the busy ladies present was that they need help when it come …
