Pumpkin Pie Cake

Quick and Easy Pumpkin Cake

I LOVE pumpkin anything but particularly love it in a cake/brownie like version.  I make a mean Pumpkin Pie Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting but this recipe is even easier and faster which is great for when unexpected company arrives and you need something quick! This also makes a big ol' pan worth so I have no trouble feeding several cowboys and a ... Continue Reading

Feed Me Healthy Recipes

We are trying really hard to work on our eating habits. As ranchers, we are in full supply of beef but instead of finding healthy recipes to incorporate that beef, we end up eating chicken fried steak or something.   It's just how we live you know?  My goal for this year and beyond, is to find more Healthy Recipes.  Recipes that are budget ...

Looking to Hire, Vote, Facebook, and Feedback

When I first started blogging, I never thought I'd be where I am but with my "problogger" status, also comes such huge responsibility. And of course, if you have any intentions on expanding and growing your blog, your network, then it becomes even more difficult to manage...alone anyways. I'm finding that because I have so much on my plate, I ... Continue Reading

Ten Minute Vegetable Stir-Fry

Ten Minute Chicken Stir-Fry

While cooking for the cowboys today, I had tons of interruptions that wasted so much time, leaving me in a cooking bind.  I had to think quick in order to get something served up for these hard working cowboys to eat.  Thankfully, I always keep convenience items on hand as I've said before so within 10 minutes, I had the main dish prepared and ...

Choosing Wisely and Why It’s Chevy

One of the things I've wanted to do as a blogger, and haven't had the chance to do, is to work with an auto company.  It's not for the lack of offers, but from who the offers were coming from that didn't allow for something more to happen.  I've always believed in choosing brands that I work with in a wise manner and what we drive is no ...

Pepperoni Pizza with a Side Salad

When I started my weight loss journey, I had no idea how hard it would be but I am finding things that make it easier.  I load up on fresh produce every week, drink tons of water, and always keep a few convenience items on hand.  When my man wants those super fattening jalapeno stuffed sausages for lunch, I can easily grab a Lean Cuisine dinner and ...

A Cowpoke and His Horse

A while back at a rodeo, a super nice fella that we've known for awhile now, gave Truett a miniature horse. Horses in general aren't cheap and for even these little boogers they can still be thousands of dollars. For Mr. Butler to give little man Sparkplug, well, it meant a lot to us and to Truett. From the day Truett's Uncle Andy sent us a ... Continue Reading

Philosophy Beauty Gifts for Mom

Mother's Day is around the corner and Philosophy would be at the top of my own list of gift giving and receiving.  I'm in love with the Microdelivery Peel and Falling in Love fragrance.  The Peel makes my face feel amazing. It literally wipes away the dead skin, leaving me feel revived.  I usually use it once a week.  You can find a "comparable" at ... Continue Reading

Menu Plan using the iFood Assistant

So menu planning is not something I do. I have good intentions to do it and sometimes even start it but then never stick with it.  This week, we are trying hard to be more budget conscious when it comes to buying groceries so I thought I'd give menu planning a try.  Because this was last minute on my part, I decided to use the iFood Assistant to ...
