Grilled Muenster Cheese Pita: Because It’s Grilled Cheese Month at Market Street

Market Street has sponsored this post, regardless the opinions are all my own. Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? I know I’m a bit late to the party with this one, but there are a few days left to celebrate this auspicious occasion, especially if you are near a Market Street […]

Market Street’s Apple Donation Program + Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie Recipe

What I love about shopping at Market Street is that they are invested in the communities that they are located in.  They like to know where the food they sell comes from, and they personally visit each and every Growing Partner they buy from.  In turn they also give back and from now until March […]

Baked Zucchini Penne Recipe: Market Street and Cans Get You Cooking

Baked Zucchini PenneI keep my pantry pretty full, I think it’s the expectation that there may be a time where I just can’t get out to the store to shop.  Whether that be because of weather, illness, lack of money, or yes even the chance of a zombie apocalypse <– you know because if you watch The Walking Dead you’ll notice that it’s the CANNED FOODS that get pillaged from the cupboards.  I’m hedging my bets with the cans folks.


Countdown to Valentine’s Day with Market Street!

After 20 years of marriage, I know that when it comes to Valentine’s Day a couple can get a little passive about it.

We’re taking a study on marriage right now in our small group, and so it encouraged me to come up with some ideas to put on a Countdown to Valentine’s Day calendar.  Nothing on it is expensive, many of the ‘hints’ I put on it are for things that are just ordinary with a loving sentiment.

It’s really easy for you to put one of these together for your spouse.  All you need is a calendar, some extra paper or wrapped paper hearts and your imagination 🙂

Bringing Texas Home for Christmas with #MarketStreetTX


I can’t believe Christmas is only a week away.  We’re starting to wrap things up (both literally and figuratively) for the big day.  Last Sunday I got together with some friends for an afternoon of crafting where we were still making Christmas decorations to brighten up our homes.  Most of them have college aged children that were making their way home for Christmas, and the resounding chorus around the table was that they couldn’t wait to get home to TEXAS!

Thanksgiving Treat Tag Printables

By the time November rolls around, if you’re like me, you’re wishing time would stop for a couple of hours each day so that you can get everything done.  When my daughter was younger I had the best intentions to thank the people that were teaching her and keeping her safe with baked goodies…but usually it never happened.  Then I told myself…it’s okay to cheat!  And by cheat I mean pick up some treats at the grocery store bakery. 

Saturday Night Chicken Made in Lodge Cookware from Market Street

October.  In Texas it’s when fall starts showing its colors.  I don’t even know where to start when I think about all the wonderful things that I love about fall.  So I think I’ll just say…FOOD.  Because this is when I start using my oven again making those comfort food dishes that just fit the fall and winter season so well.

Celebrate Johnny Appleseed Day, September 26th

It’s August. In Texas. That Means it’s #HatchChileFest at #MarketStreetTX and It’s Awesome

We had only lived in Texas for two weeks last year when August rolled around.  I was completely in awe of the Hatch Chile invasion that descends upon the state in August.  Little did this Northern transplant know that is because Hatch Chiles from New Mexico are only available during a six week period in August/September.
