Spring is always an exciting time of year to kick off at-home entertaining. With the weather getting warmer, and kids soon out of school—there’s lots to celebrate! Kick off your sunny-season entertaining with two of my very favorite hors d'oeuvres: Peach and Prosciutto Crostini with Whipped Honey Ricotta AND Spring Pea Pesto Crostini.
I”ve been holding out on you … I’ve been making this banana bread twice a month for the last year and am just now sharing the recipe with you! I feel bad because it is SO GOOD!
It is the perfect banana bread—just the right texture (a mix of gooey and cakey), easy to make, and healthy (so you don’t feel so bad when you eat half the loaf right out of the oven).
These are not only the cutest Easter bunny cupcakes, but they are also the best coconut cupcakes ever. And I really mean it.
It's already been a crazy spring. I have a newborn baby, a new born book, and a book/media tour underway. This girl needs a drink! Luckily, Seersucker Gin graciously sent me a bottle of their liquor and I happily got to work to create a perfect springtime cocktail that is light and fresh and perfect for the warmer days ahead.
Wow! What a night! I can't believe everyone that came out to the launch party for my first book, So Much to Celebrate, at Nashville's Draper James! We toasted with Le Grand Courtage Champagne and snacked on biscuits from Holler & Dash and macarons from Baked in Nashville. The line formed early for the coveted SWAG BAGS but everyone got to enjoy something special with Abigail McGinnis penning calligraphy book plates.
After years of hard work, my first book, So Much to Celebrate, has arrived! I couldn't be more proud of it or more eager for you to get you hands on it!
Thank you so much for following me on Instagram! Here is the Peppermint Cheesecake recipe I promised you. Be sure to print or save it as it will disappear after the holidays. It is a feature recipe in my new book So Much to Celebrate. If you like this recipe, you're going to love the book! Preorder it here! Merry Christmas!
We take our Christmas card very seriously—always embracing the holidays by showcasing red and green, Christmas trees, and this year our vintage Wagoneer. We had such a blast with our photographer/friend Amy Cherry out at Country Cove Christmas Tree Farm in Murfreesboro Tennessee.
I had the pleasure of going on Talk of the Town last Friday to bake my Soft-Baked Sugar Cookies. The holidays can be nuts, so I set out to make a sugar cookie recipe that is super simple and totally kid-friendly. These are not only fun to eat but a joy to make!
It's not Thanksgiving without sweet potatoes and this recipe takes the cake. It is simple and totally delicious with a smooth texture and crisp sweet crust.
Ya'll, Thanksgiving is less than a week away!! I wanted to bring you just a couple of my family's favorite Thanksgiving recipes so you can make them too.
Let's start with this Carrot Soufflé. It is like eating dessert with your turkey. No shame in this Thanksgiving game ...
The stockings are not quite hung by the chimney with care ... but I'm working on it! Christmas decorating started today and to get us in the mood, I turned on Elf, lit a fraiser fur candle, and whipped up a batch of these Chewy Molasses Cookies.
All my favorite things have collided—a feminine autumn tailgate with delicious food and sparkling wine set at a picturesque farm in Franklin featuring a vintage aqua truck and dreamy puppy dog. PLUS a give-a-away for my followers? Wow—this one's something special!
I love living in the South but one thing I've always wanted to participate in is the Northern tradition of apple picking. Yes, we have great summer peaches and blackberries here in the South but there is something about the crisp fall air and the idea of picking apples with your family that makes me, well, a little jealous.
I can not help but put pumpkin in everything this time of year! Pound cake is a versatile dense cake that really lets the addition of seasonal ingredients shine.
For my birthday last weekend I wanted to make a fun signature cupcake inspired by fall. My favorite autumn treat is a caramel dipped apples so naturally I knew exactly where to start.
Now back away from that box of same-old pops. These surprising DIY popsicles prove that it’s easy—and cool—to be different.
I recently hosted a garden party to celebrate the launch of Draper James' latest summer collection. I invited some of my girlfriends for an alfresco luncheon out on the back porch and we had the best time giggling in our new Draper James gingham!
When I was little, my mom worked as a floral designer. I grew up cutting Queen Anne's Lace with her on the side of the road, de-thorning roses, taking trips to the wholesaler, and watching her create huge beautiful arrangements for weddings. She taught me so much and recently we had a blast collaborating to create a flower arranging how-to for Your Williamson Magazine.
I was recently lucky enough to be invited to attend "Biscuit Bootcamp" at Brentwood's Holler & Dash. I mean, let's be honest, I invited myself and I was lucky enough they said yes!
My sweet friend, Evin Krehbiel (of Evin Photography) and I met up with Holler & Dash's Culinary Director, Chef Brandon Frohne for a lesson in buttermilk biscuit making and well, a lot of laughs.
