Let’s Talk Pecan Pie

  So let’s talk pecan pie. It’s a classic dessert that can be a little daunting if you’re not familiar with baking this delicious Southern favorite. Well, for that matter it might be a favorite of folks up north or even out west, but I’ve never eaten pecan pie in those places so I wouldn’t know. […]

Advent “Wreath” in a Box

One of my favorite observances this time of year is the Advent wreath and the weekly candle lighting that leads up to Christmas. This year I decided to incorporate this idea into our home and created an Advent “wreath” in a box.

    Love Hands Kid Craft With Free Printable

    I whipped up a cute little template for the young kids at church last week and thought the craft turned out so cute that I wanted to share the free printable here at Small Talk Mama. I thought the little ones did such a good job with this kid craft that I asked my son to create one for me, and he kindly humored me one morning before school. I just never know if he will or he won’t from one minute to the next these days. He is so on the verge of being a “big boy,” but I just keep wishing he won’t grow up. Anyway, I was…
