Cajun Chicken Tortellini Bake

September 7, 2012 duchessoffork 7

If you know me, you know I love making quick and easy suppers that are tasty and on the healthy side. Sure, we order pizza from time to time like any other busy family, but I cook 6 out of 7 nights and love every minute of it. I try to sneak in as many …

The Duchess Does Dallas

We came, we saw, and the Tide conquered. The Duke and I had a wonderful long weekend away in Dallas. Our trip began Friday, but not before I dropped Julia off at her first day of Mom’s Day Out. She’s going once a week at a local church. She had a great report from …

wanted: a mommy makeover

August 24, 2012 duchessoffork 11

I’m helpless when it comes to makeup, hair and fashion. I put on the bare minimum when it comes to makeup and I almost always do my hair the same way. I feel like being a SAHM has put me in a funk when it comes to taking care of myself. I never have to …

After School Snack Ideas

Perhaps it’s the teacher in me, but I just adore back-to-school time. Kids are excited about their new teachers and seeing old friends, and parents are excited about the kids being back in a routine. This is the time of year that I miss teaching the most. Even though Ju …

Some weeks I have ideas for blog posts coming out of my ears. The creative juices are flowing at full speed, and I can’t seem to get my fingers to type as fast as my brain is working. I love those weeks! On the other hand, there are many weeks when I experience major wr …
