Edith Sanford Race

In September, we traveled to Nashville for the Women’s Running 5K and half marathon sponsored by our friends at the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation.

Miranda’s Mama’s Meatloaf

A while back I began making Miranda Lambert’s Mama’s meatloaf. I pinned it on Pinterest, (here is the link http://www.pinterest.com/pin/176062666654072035/) and made it almost every time we had guests. We absolutely loved it!

Zac vs. Luke

The genre of country music has traditionally been the expression of rural Amverica. From Loretta Lynn singing about being a Coal Miner’s Daughter and being on the pill, to Hank Williams singing about being so lonesome he could die, to Dolly Parton singing about not being a Dumb Blonde; it has been about what is happening […]
