Recipe: Old Fashioned Southern Ham Salad

Making a batch of old fashioned, southern ham salad is one of my favorite ways to use up leftover ham after the holidays. It's also referred to as deviled ham since the consistency is like that of a spread. You know, perfect for using as a sandwich spread or to serve with butter crackers. This recipe only requires three ingredients and takes me straight back to childhood.

It's Happening: Moving our Laundry Upstairs!

We've been talking about moving our laundry upstairs since moving into this house (that's 7 years of talking) and this is the year we're finally making it happen! Wow, it feels good to say that. And! After coming through a 12-week kitchen renovation over the summer, we swore up and down we were done with tearing out walls for a good while, but here we are again and I have to admit it also feels good to be back at it. Today we're sharing all the plans, what we're losing and what we'll gain throughout the process.

Reflections and Intentions for the New Year

With each new year on the horizon, we find ourselves taking a moment to reflect back and set new intentions for the fresh start ahead. This year we're breaking from the structured format we've previously adhered to and are sharing a more personal note amidst some of the family milestones and project highlights we're most proud of from the past year.

Our Go-To Kitchen Planning Guides

It's hard to believe it's been four months since finishing the renovation of our kitchen this year. On one hand, everything still feels shiny and new and in another way, it feels like this has been our space for years.

Recipe: Classic & Easy Pecan Pie

This time of year is one filled with family and tradition — one of which includes my mom's pecan pies. She's been making them by the batch to give as gifts every holiday season since before I was born. The recipe was passed down from her mother and as a kid, even though I loved watching mom bake these pies, the filling was too rich for my liking. As an adult, I've developed a taste for them and look forward to a single slice once a year at Christmas. I hope you enjoy this family recipe as much as we do.

Before & After: DIY Wooden Letter Board

Today's post is in partnership with Goodwill of Central and Coastal Virginia.

We recently transformed a thrift store picture frame into a wooden letter board and have had fun using it as an added piece of decor and party prop at different gatherings we've had here at the house. It's a simple project and we can't wait to show you the before and after...

A Stainless Steel Cleaner that Actually Works + a Giveaway!

Today's post is sponsored by Therapy, who we've partnered with to give away $60 worth of kitchen cleaning products to one lucky reader. Entry details at the bottom of this post.

Earlier this summer, I came across a stainless steel cleaner that actually works and have never looked back. It all started back on Prime Day — I'd loaded up our Amazon cart with a few things we'd been eyeing, hoping they'd go on sale, when this stainless steel polish by Therapy with over 1400 reviews popped up in one of my feeds. Admittedly, I was skeptical because I've tried everything from spray cleaners to wipes and baby oil on micro-fiber cloths and have always been left with a streaky finish. That said, we were in the midst of the kitchen renovation and all of our new appliances are stainless, so I added it to our cart and figured it was worth a try.
