I have a confession. This may come as a shock to you being that I have a cooking blog and love to cook but… Right now, I hate cooking. It’s true. Something about hot weather makes me lose cooking motivation and despise being in the kitchen. It just feels…foreign. And so I try to avoid it as much as possible. Is that weird? Well just
It’s here!!! Summerrrrr! Cookouts, fresh foods, warm sun, the beach, vacations! Although summer isn’t my favorite season, I’m trying to learn to enjoy it for what it is and soak up some of this beautiful sunlight! Here are a few of my favorite hot weathered food recipes on Divas Can Cook!! (Browse around my site if you’re looking for a specific recipe, these are just

If I had to pick one flavor to sum up my childhood it would be vanilla, hands down! From the scent of mom’s vanilla candles she’d burn every Saturday morning while cleaning to the taste of my grandmothers highly requested vanilla pound cakes, vanilla simply ruled! However there’s one vanilla memory that “takes the cake”! It’s embedded into my childhood more than those metal skates
I’m doing my happy dance right now! Wanna know why? Go ahead, ask me! Ok geez I’ll tell you! Because the mailman delivered The Dairy Good Cookbook yesterday and I’ve been cozied up in my bed for the last hour with this book like I’m reading a bestselling novel. Have I ever told you all how obsessed I am with cookbooks?
Today we’re going to be doing something a bit different! I won’t be sharing a recipe in this post, but instead let’s shoot the breeze about the good ol’ American kitchen! Yes, the kitchen, my stomping ground! Have you ever just sat and thought about what a fascinating place the American kitchen is? It is just as diverse as the folks who cook in them.
Since finding out on Facebook that so many of my readers are moms expecting their first child (what’s up with that? Must be something in the water!), I thought a post on diapers, wipes and a homemade diaper cream recipe would be right on time! Feel free to pass this post along to your prego friends if a new baby is not on your agenda
Fall is almost here (eek! I’m so happy)! Every fall I give my home a good ol’ cleaning from top to bottom. I really enjoy it, matter of fact, I start getting excited just thinking about it. This is probably a sign that I should get more hobbies but whatev’s! There is just something about entering into a new season with a sparkling clean and
Often times here in the Divas Can Cook kitchen I’ll cook up a recipe only to decide it’s not good enough for my “best friends in my head” (that would be you). Sometimes I’ll nix the recipe altogether but often times I’ll put it in my “Recipes in Rehab” folder. This folder consists of recipes that are really good but just need a little something
Click here if you need help planning your menu. Hi guys!! Last month was ca-raaay-zy! I got off course with menu planning since I had so many projects going on (and yes totally blew our food budget), but today I took the time to plan out my weekly menu so I’m sharing it with you guys first (as opposed to when the week is complete)
FINALLY I’ve joined Ziplist! A lot of you guys have asked me about it and I’ve been procrastinating for the longest. (I’m horrible at putting stuff off) but this year I am determined to stay focused and just “get’er done!” when it comes to many areas of my life, including my blog. I’ve remodeled my blog a little. Can you tell? Mainly just to tidy
This is my first menu post. Depending on the response it gets, I’ll continue to do them once or twice a month. It’s mid January and I’ve been trying to make “healthier” choices this month like eating more whole grains, fruit, & salads. I’m taking it a day at a time because I don’t want to overwhelm myself. My biggest downfall is SWEETS!!! OMG I
How are those New Years Resolutions coming along guys? I’ve already started slacking off a bit when it comes to eating less sugar (my major weakness. Gosh I love sweeeeets!) but I’m determined to stick with this goal. It’s all about baby steps, refocusing and making smarter choices. In comes Truvia® because I am NOT about to give up my overly sweet daily coffee, no
I grew up in a home with a very creative grandmother who could put together homemade meals in a snap. I was blessed with her infectious love for cooking but somehow the whole instant creative meal planning gene double skipped passed me. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love thinking up and putting together homemade meals for my family but with a new baby and a
Are we almost halfway through the summer already? Fall will be here before you know it! I’m really looking forward to that special, cozy feeling that comes with fall-time. Comfy sweaters, colorful leaves, pumpkin spice, bonfires and crisp mornings. And let’s not forget about those favorite fall food & drinks like apple cider and hearty soups. Today we’re cooking up some of my favorite quick
