Lasagna! Lasagna! You’re wonderful stuff. I love you, lasagna, I can’t get enough. You’re messy like spaghetti, and you’re cheesy and hot. Lasagna! Lasagna! You really hit the spot.

“…Be ye holy; for I am holy” 1 Peter 1:16 I think everyone disagrees on what makes a good cup of coffee.

I found a recipe on Pinterest this afternoon for crockpot soup (I LOVE Crockpots, best invention ever!) But as I went to make it, I found that I would have to tweak it slightly, which I tend to do anyways, as that is why I cook in the first place, to make stuff the way… Read Article →

It’s been revealed; we now ‘know’ what Baby RedHot’s sex is! Ultrasounds don’t just reveal the baby’s gender; the procedure is done mainly to take an early look at the fetus to make sure it’s developing properly.
