I know it's off season for Pumpkin, but I decided I needed to re-photograph these muffins. My first attempt was just that, an attempt. I have learned quite alot since then and decided to share a comparison picture from when I first started out at Eat It & Say Yum. The muffins look pretty yummy in the first picture on the left, but clearly my photography skills are lacking. The photo on the right is the one I did recently. I like to think I've learned and grown. Every photo shoot I learn Read more [...]
For those of you who keep up with my blog regularly, if there are any of you out there, you may have noticed me posting recipes quite frequently that you have already seen on Eat It & Say Yum. I've been working to get all my content transferred over, so that's why you've seen the same (or similar) photos and text that is weeks and months past.
I'm almost finished transferring all of my work over to my new blog and it has certainly been a journey. I have realized that photography is Read more [...]
Cranberry Marshmallow Salad. Chock full of fresh cranberries, fresh apples, pineapple, marshmallows, and heavy whipping cream. Oh yeah, and some extra sugar, because there isn't enough "naturally occurring." This was my most favorite side dish at Thanksgiving when I was a kid. I probably aet half the bowl by myself.

Nevertheless, this salad is amazing. Really, it should be a dessert. But it's Thanksgiving, so side dishes Read more [...]
If you've ever eaten Thanksgiving dinner with a member of my family or extended family, and loved the sweet potatoes, here is the recipe!! The combination of sweet potatoes, butter, brown sugar & pecans is pretty amazing.

However, since Thanksgiving is all about having the most rich, delicious, and wonderful tasting foods for dinner, this is officially a Thanksgiving side dish.
One year, we spent Thanksgiving with our Read more [...]
Buttermilk Pie. Ah, a Southern treat. This pie comes from my Dad's side of the family. He grew up in Oklahoma and still has roots there. Most Thanksgivings that I remember include this amazing pie. It's rich, creamy, custardy, and sweet. I was a little intimidated to make this pie for the first time without coaching from my Dad, but I successfully made it! And I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it actually was.
This handy, dandy, photo collage breaks the steps down for you. Match the Read more [...]
My life has been pretty stressful lately. Blake has a week left in his cast (only 7 days! Partay!!), our house is half in boxes and half scattered all over the place, Kyson is having issues with sleeping and food which means I'm not sleeping, and it's Christmastime! I have always, always, loved Christmas, but for some reason this year I've been having a really hard time getting into it. Probably because with everything else going on, I'm more focused on packing up boxes and eliminating junk, Read more [...]
