For The Love Of Cooking

Lasagna is one of those dishes that taste so good that anyone who is not in the kitchen probably would think it took hours and hours of prep and cook time when really it's a simple dish.  
Well, let me back up, it simple for those of us who buy our noodles (kudos to those of you who make your own-please teach me) and sauce! 

This lasagna recipe I adore because it's just so dang cute!

Petite Lasagna

Head over to Can You Stay For Dinner (a new fave) for the recipe!!

I Spy: Statement Necklaces

When it comes to jewelry I love big bold statement pieces! 
These necklaces are the perfect accessory to help wrap up warm summer days and 
transition into fall!

Shop the look...

I Spy: Dapper Brady {VMAN}

Last week I was all set to share with you the fall issue of VMAN mag hitting the newsstands August 23.  I started pulling together my post but could find absolutely ZERO info on the insanely hot cover featuring Tom Brady and one fierce pup.  I honestly started to believe I had dreamed the whole thing up.  I could just swear I saw it on E! News the night before but, after further investigating where I found NOTHING it was official...It was all a dream!

Then today...ta-da up pops an email from the fella with all the goods on the issue and handsome Brady, pup and all gracing the cover!  My "dreams" were now a reality, my day was complete!!

You can't help but swoon over the dapperness of this shoot but, after reading a small preview of the interview between legendary fashion icon Tom Ford and Tom Brady the man has definitely made a fan out of me!

Indulge my loves...Indulge!

Craving a little bit more???

I can be a very impatient person at times but, I try to remind myself daily that even though I believe I am ready for certain things in my life that things are not always going to happen
on my timing but, on God's timing! 

Happy Monday my sweet darlings...I hope your weekends have been unforgettable!

Umm...Grape Pie?? This is total news to me!
I never knew such existed however, it does make perfectly good sense!

The Kitchn is one of my go to blogs when looking for recipes to try out and no disappointment this time around!  Sometimes I feel like I see the same recipes over and over with only a few variations so I was way stoked to see something new in the recipe world!

See the full recipe here and make sure to also stop by The Kitchn fb page!

A girlfriend of mine filled me in on one of the cutest,
super trendy, easy on the bank account boutiques I've seen in a while!

Swoon Boutique can be found in Holly Springs, North Carolina but, for those of you out of state you can shop part of the collection online.  I highly suggest stopping by the
boutiques facebook page and becoming a fan. 
The shop post new arrivals almost daily...I'm a certified stalker of their fb page!

After you stop by the SB facebook page make sure to check out the

DIY: Out With The Old?? Not So Fast...

The old saying out with the old and in with the new has taken on a whole new meaning!

If you have been a reader of DC for a while or maybe even just a few months
it won't take you long to catch on that Jen Ramos of Made By Girl and Cocoa Hearts is one my biggest inspirations!  I would definitely classify her as one of the most
creative, fascinating blogger and entrepreneurs out there!

Per usual I was over indulging in the MBG blog and found myself back to one of my more favorite DIY’s Jen has posted.  However, as much as I LOVE this super creative way to jazz up the old shoes in your closet, a part of me hopes my sweet mama is NOT reading this post!  I have pretty much convinced her that YES it is necessary to purchase new shoes regularly, because duh mama those are soooo last season ;)  

Jen took a pair pumps she had for the past 4 years and updated them to
fit this seaons trend...Neon!

All you need is paint and a brush and major
creative juices flowing (wine should help with this part)!! 

Stop by MBG for more pics and details...

I Spy: Rue in Texas

The fab city girls behind Rue Mag have taken things down to the Lone Star State for the latest issue that just went live moments ago!

This issue is one of their best pieces yet- the Rue team just keeps getting better! 
Total bonus, one of my fave life style bloggers, Austin beauty Camille Styles teaches us all how to make a taco the Texas way!

Here is a small sampling of my favorites from the issue...

BUT...the absolute BEST part of the issue for me had to be "Recipe for Trouble"
The chicness in this spread (I can only imagine the fun they had shooting these images) was beyond swoon worthy!!

Make sure to stop by and check out the complete issue!

Ladies and Gentlemen...We've hit the JACKPOT!

The word Nachos stops me in my tracks (I will never refuse a chip covered in all that heavenly goodness)
 now toss in Apple and I'm just downright curious and wondering,
could my nachos finally be healthy for me?!

So, that is a little wishful thinking but, this remix of your classic "nacho" is absolutely one
I will be trying!  The fact you are removing the chips and replacing with apples and drizzling
with chocolate instead of cheese has to cut a few calories right?!?!
Such a dreamer...

Ok...let me give you a second to take all the deliciousness in...

You good? 
Now head on over to how Sweet it is for all the yummy details!
