Southern Breakfast, Part 2

Posted by Rachel Risley on

In keeping with our theme of Country Ham accompaniments  this week.  Today I want to share my recipe for Cinnamon Rolls. My great-great grandmother, Mama Pratt, made the best cinnamon rolls.  Unfortunately I never learned to make them like her, and like many family recipes my "dashes & pinches" aren't quite the same.   The recipe I'm sharing today is adapted a little from one I found in a Southern Living cookbook a few years ago.  The rolls take a little time to rise, but they are worth the wait!

Southern Breakfast

Posted by Rachel Risley on

As we get ready for the Spring Hill Country Ham Festival this week, southern food has been on my mind! Anytime someone mentions country ham my mind automatically goes to my great-grandfather.  He always put up his own hams, and as a little girl I remember there were always country hams hanging in his basement. They were the best!

We'll...

New Wreath Designs

Posted by Rachel Risley on

I am always searching for new materials and trying different methods for making wreaths.  That is why I was so happy to find the new mesh used in these wreaths.      The jute & poly mesh brings together the best of both materials - the shape & fullness of a mesh wreath and the simplistic beauty of burlap.  I can't wait to showcase these new wreaths this weekend at the Thompson's Station Dog & Pony Show.  What do you think? Welcome Home, Rachel Buy Wreath - Black & Burlap "Bless" Buy Wreath - Black & Burlap with Block Monogram...

Fall Weekends = Craft Shows!

Fall is such a wonderful time of the year.  Each year I look forward to cooler weather, beautiful trees, bonfires, football, and pumpkin everything!  But most of all in the fall I look forward to craft shows!   If you are looking for fall fun and new family traditions, craft fairs & local festivals are a good place to start.  Many are free and offer activities everyone in the family can enjoy, from food trucks & live entertainment to face painting & hayrides.  Almost every weekend this fall you can find a unique craft fair or local festival to attend....
