Updates to Our Antique Ladder Shelving

This antique ladder shelving I added to our breezeway has been one of my favorite projects all summer, and I thought it would be a good time to show you some of the updates we’ve made since you last saw it!

Sponsored by Miracle-Gro // Okay, first of all, if you’re dying to see exactly how I made this ladder shelving, you can click here to see the original post! I needed a place to keep all the plants I somehow seem to keep accumulating, and these shelves made from an old antique ladder were the perfect solution. I have plenty of space for my “garden” to grow, and my breezeway looks so much more homey and inviting now.

I do not have a green thumb AT ALL, but these plants have actually done really well in our little breezeway. When I looked back on the original photos I took of this project, I couldn’t believe the difference a few months can make! Here’s what our ladder shelves look like now: [Read more…]

Zucchini Bread

The perfect zucchini bread… moist, sweet, buttery, tender, and absolutely delicious. I’m using the base recipe of our ever-so-popular pumpkin bread and turning it into everyone’s summertime favorite… zucchini bread!

If you’re one of those awesome people who grow a big, bountiful garden every year, first of all, I’m super jealous of you! How do you keep up with it?? Today’s recipe is perfect for utilizing all those beautiful zucchini plants you’ve been tending to all summer long, and there’s nothing better than baking something delicious with the fruits and vegetables you’ve grown in your own backyard.

For those of you like me who are TOTAL slackers in the gardening department, no worries… the grocery stores are brimming with zucchini right now, so you can make this recipe too!

Last fall, I shared my favorite pumpkin bread recipe, and it went crazy on Pinterest. Like majorly CRAZY. It’s now one of the most-viewed recipes on my blog (depending on the season), and I can’t say that I’m surprised. It’s simple… it’s classic… it bakes perfectly every time… and it’s so stinkin’ delicious! I couldn’t let this summer go by without adding a new recipe to the sweet bread collection, so today I present you with my all-time favorite zucchini bread.

This recipe is a little different from others you might have tried, but trust me, it will become your favorite too. This particular sweet bread recipe uses butter (not oil), so it has a rich, buttery flavor that completely sets it apart from others. My past attempts at zucchini bread turned out dense and heavy, but thanks to a suggestion from my sister’s beau, I found the fix for that: after grating the zucchini, gather it in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze it over a sink to remove all the excess moisture. Seriously, don’t skip this step! The bread’s texture turns out soft and fluffy, the cinnamon and nutmeg are right on point, and a handful of walnuts add the perfect crunchy bite into each slice. If you’re allergic or just not a nut fan, you can of course leave them out entirely. I love ’em though!

Enjoy! [Read more…]

If you’ve been following this blog for a little while and saw our living room/dining room makeover or recent office makeover, you already know that my decorating style is pretty clean and simple.

A whole year… yes, I know. What the heck took me so long, right? When I started this makeover last summer, I really wanted to challenge myself. I didn’t want to just slap a couple pictures on the wall, maybe paint a piece of furniture, and call it a day. I wanted to design a room from top to bottom that was beautiful, functional, organized, and 100% me. The problem was, (as I would soon discover) that I didn’t exactly know what “me” was. Let me explain… [Read more…]

Strawberry Crisp

Warm, delicious strawberry crisp with a crunchy, buttery topping and sweet, tender berries…

This crisp is SO much easier than fussing with pie crust and tastes amazing with a scoop or two of ice cream!

Today’s recipe is a real treat, my friends. Sweet seasonal fruit baked until soft and tender… the juices thick and bubbling over the sides of the dish… with a crunchy, buttery topping of chewy oats, nutty pecans, and warm, spicy cinnamon… drool!

I knew I wanted to make some kind of fruit-filled pie or tart or crisp for you this summer and debated which route to go. Do I want to mess around making fussy pie crust all day or do I want to dump some fruit into a dish, pile on a quick and easy topping, and be licking my dessert plate clean as soon as possible? Hmm… looks like the crisp won this round, guys!
