Season of Change

December 5, 2012 duchessoffork 10

Welp, I can’t ignore it any longer. We’re packing up our home and moving in just three short weeks. We’ll likely make the big switch the day after Christmas. Yes, it’s the holidays, yes things are busy under normal circumstances, so it’s the perf …

Is hell freezing over?! I’m finally writing a Weekly Eats post! I don’t know how I’ve let a few months slip by without posting our dinners. I hate to keep you waiting one minute longer, so here’s what we ate last week: MONDAY: Buffalo Chicken Cobb Sala …

Harbor Docks {A Destin Tradition}

November 30, 2012 duchessoffork 0

No trip to Destin would be complete without a visit to Harbor Docks. Harbor Docks has been Destin’s premier seafood restaurant since they opened their doors in 1979. It’s nothing more than a cozy cottage with a massive deck and sushi bar. The panoramic views of De …

Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad

November 28, 2012 duchessoffork 4

This is one of my go-to simple suppers that even the Duke loves. I feel silly sharing this, because it’s hardly a recipe. You just throw a bunch of things on a plate and call it a fancy Cobb salad. You can use any ingredients for the salad that you like, but this is how …

Highlights from NYC 2012

November 26, 2012 duchessoffork 3

We came, we ate, we conquered. The Duke and I had a wonderful few days away in NYC. I’ve already mentioned that it’s one of our favorite cities to visit. We had no agenda, and it was so nice to do things at our own pace. The trip can be summed up in tree words: &h …

thankful

November 21, 2012 duchessoffork 3

I have so much to be thankful for this year. Not just on Thanksgiving, but every day. I start each prayer by thanking God for all of my blessings. The fact that I wake up each morning with air in my lungs and a beat in my heart is a blessing. The fact that the …

I’m leaving today. Well, tomorrow. That’s right! The Duke and I are heading to one of our very favorite cities for five days. Watch out Manhattan, we’re coming for you! source We wanted to get out of town alone before baby #2 arrives, and my window of travel …

Pumpkin Kissed Toffee Cake Bars

November 14, 2012 duchessoffork 2

Pumpkin kisses, meet toffee bits. Toffee bits, meet pumpkin kisses. And golden butter cake? You’re invited to the soiree, too.   I, for one, love boxed yellow cake mix. To me it has the perfect cake batter flavor. The only way to improve upon boxed yellow cake mix …

It took us a few days to adjust to the time change, but we’re back on schedule. Falling back is rough! As this baby continues to grow and grow, I continue to eat and eat. Here’s what I’ve been craving lately (pretty much everything in site): I can’t te …
