When I was a kid, my mother was the bread-winner in the family. My dad was battle a drug addiction problem so he wasn’t exactly present despite being right in front of us. My mother worked long hours and even though she did cook a lot from scratch, she had her moments when oven was best. One of my favorite things was the frozen pot pies. I didn’t really know then how not-so-good those little doozies were. But, they were comfort food. [Read more…]

The Big Game day is almost here. Are you excited? If you’re like most of us, you know that planning a game day spread can make you absolutely bonkers. For others, all the game day snacking causes havoc on our lifestyles. Big game Sunday stresses me out. It’s a day full of fun and chaos, but trying to make sure I have goodies I can snack out without worrying about my health can often wear me out.
This year I hope to change that. While I help you with some healthy snack alternatives Sav-A-Lot is going to help you in the grocery budget department. [Read more…]
It’s that time of year when all I want is comfort food. And my camera. And for it to stop being so freaking cold. And to find my yumeating photos for my recipes.
I don’t ask for too much, do I?
Since moving, my life has been nothing more than living out of boxes. It seems like a get a box or two taken care of and five more appear in their place. What makes me laugh is that I don’t really have that much stuff; I just keep moving things around and making new piles. [Read more…]

So what’s a girl to do when her life has changed and the person she used to have movie time with can no longer really be a part of that movie time?
She makes HER OWN movie time! I’ve really been trying to reach out to my friends a lot more and my mother is my rock. Without her and my girl friends I don’t know where I would be right now. So, it only seems natural that a foodie like me treat my girls to a movie night in. [Read more…]
Did you really think I was going to skip out on all the yummy food posts? 😉
I know, in all fairness it HAS been a while. But, there was good reason for that. YUM eating is now here and the domain is being forwarded. Thank goodness that option exists so that all the hard work from YUM isn’t a total waste. I’m just in a different place in my life and when I started to niche out and go into the food world, I wasn’t expecting it to trigger so much. I should have just stuck with the lifestyle site I had in the first place and not listened to people who say you have to pick one thing and stick with it. Boo! (LOL) But, in the same breath, YUMeating was a WONDERFUL experience for me. It was something I shared with Mr. McConnell and kiddo. We traveled, we ate, we shared good memories. Now, that chapter in my life is over and it’s time to write the next one.
