Hit Miss – Smashed Fried Okra Is A Big Hit

Smashed Fried Okra is tender on the inside and crunchy on the outside – just the way I like it.  Okra – it’s one of those southern foods that you love, hate or have to ask someone, “What is okra?”  There is no middle ground! Okra is a green flowering plant. It belongs in the same […]

Hit or Miss Valentine’s Day Wreath

I haven’t done a hit or miss lately, so I thought I would kick things off with this Hit or Miss Valentine’s Day Wreath. I don’t usually decorate very much for Valentine’s Day.  If my husband and I will be home that day, I make a special meal complete with a romantic tablescape.  You can […]

Hit or Miss – DIY Febreze

It’s Hit or Miss Wednesday!  Last week I shared some really cute kid friendly pumpkin crafts that were a big hit at my house. I always want my house to smell fresh and clean.  Don’t you?  And my husband’s nose hates plugin air fresheners. Those plugins causes him to sneeze and his eyes to water. […]

DIY Rustic Pears

It’s Hit or Miss Wednesday! Last week I shared an easy DIY canning lid pumpkin and I promised that this week’s hit or miss would be just as easy.  Seems like I’m on a fall fruit kick with the pumpkins and pears! Remember these light bulbs? Do they still make them?  I found 2 in […]

Easy DIY Pumpkin

I was recently searching Pinterest for another fall DIY project.  It had to be quick, easy and cheap.  And that’s when I happened upon a gazillion pins for canning jar band/rings pumpkins.  This easy DIY pumpkin is super cute and really simple.  I didn’t have to look at a tutorial at all.  I like simple. […]

Fall Moss Wreath

This week’s hit or miss will not add one ounce of fat.  I promise!  But, just in case you missed last week’s Chocolate Graham Pancakes, you can find them here! I was amazed at the chill in the air on Monday and Tuesday, especially after 100 degree temps last week!  And even though we know […]

Chocolate Graham Pancakes

It’s Hit or Miss Wednesday!  Last week I made this HGTV Copcat Candy Wrapper Lampshade.  This past Saturday I made Chocolate Graham Pancakes from the August 18 edition of Woman’s World magazine.  The mag was inserted in a lovely gift basket I received for my birthday. Right smack dab in the middle of the magazine […]

HGTV Copycat Candy Wrapper Lampshade

It’s hit or miss Wednesday!  If you’re new to the blog, welcome!  Every Wednesday I share a recipe or a project that I’ve found in a magazine or on Pinterest, etc. and report on whether it’s a hit or miss.  I do have to say that I’ve had more hits than misses!  You can find […]

Sweet Tea and Lemonade Cake

I’m as southern as the days are long, but this is a first for me – baking a sweet tea and lemonade cake!  I mean, sure, southerners are known for their good food and their sweet tea.  But to be totally honest, I haven’t had sweet tea in years – unsweetened for me, thank you […]

Hit or Miss – Red, White & Blue Ice Cream Cake

Since the 4th of July is right around the corner, I wanted to try something patriotic for this week’s hit or miss segment.  While I was searching high and low, the July edition of Southern Living arrived.  I really should get something out of promoting that mag, don’t you think? At the very end of […]
