My New Title

My name is Tara.  I’m a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter, a niece, a cousin, a friend, a colleague.  I have a new title to add to my list – Aunt.  My niece Audrey Ann was born March 8, 2012.

Being an aunt has turned into one of my most favorite titles yet!

Congratulations, Lindsey & Grayson!  I’m so happy for you and excited to watch Audrey grow up!

When Audrey was 7 days old, I went up to their house and did a little photo shoot with the newborn.  Here are a couple of more of my favorites from the shoot.

A beautiful fall Saturday turned into an impromptu maternity session for my sister Lindsey.  Assuming Baby T cooperates, we should find out tomorrow whether she is expecting a boy or a girl.  I can’t wait!

I love Pinterest

Pinterest is the greatest website I’ve found for discovering new recipes and craft/decorating ideas.  I’ve made several recipes lately that I’ve found on Pinterest.  Here are some of my favorites.  (I apologize for the photo quality.  Just quickly took them with my phone.)

Cream Cheese Sausage Balls

I definitely recommend these.  They aren’t as dry as normal sausage balls.  Definitely perfect for football season.

Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

I was intimidated at first by the thought of having to cut the pork tenderloin open so it can then be rolled back up.  After doing a quick google search, I found a couple of good videos that demonstrated how to do it.  Mine wasn’t exactly as pretty as the examples I found but I think it’ll get better the more I do it.  Also, I didn’t have any kitchen twine so I used large wood skewers to hold the tenderloin together after I rolled it back up.

I don’t have photos but here are a couple of other recipes I’ve tried recently.

Creamy Chicken Picasso

Jalapeno Popper Dip

My sisters have both tried the following recipe & loved it.  I can’t wait to try it out.

Taco Pizza

You should definitely give these recipes a try.  And, join Pinterest if you aren’t already a member.  It’s awesome!
