Cocktails for New Years Eve and the Morning After…

Baker Bettie Beverage, December, Feature, Holiday 13 Comments

Two years ago on New Years Eve my husband and I had only been dating for a few months.  We went out to a local bar with his brother to celebrate, but it was a bit bitter sweet.  I would be leaving in a few days to move to Austin, TX for my music therapy internship. As midnight hit this …

Well, it’s that time of year again.  The time when we reflect on the past year and our accomplishments… or lack there of.  It’s also the time of year when we get to start with a clean slate.  Break out those resolutions and give it a better shot this year.

Baker Bettie Beverage, Holiday 5 Comments

Family holiday traditions.  They come in many different forms.  And there is something fascinating to me about hearing what traditions are important to other people.  But I didn’t always care about that.  I think when we are young it is hard to appreciate these traditions the way you do when you grow up.  I guess our perspective is skewed when …

Game Day Gourmet: Southern Fried Chicken and Buttermilk Biscuits

Baker Bettie Chicken, Savory 9 Comments

I have had many failures in the kitchen.  It seems like every time I cook there is some type of mishap.  But it rarely ruins a meal.  I have learned not to give up if it isn’t going exactly as I planned and sometimes the “mistake” leads to a culinary discovery.
