Henpeck Lane

I’m starting a new adventure! My new blog will be a heavier on the writing, but will still include a bunch of the wonderful things I get to cook along the way.

Thanks Y’all


You guys.  I’m not sure how or why there were so many views on my silly little cooking blog yesterday, but it was an all time high for me.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.  If you enjoy cooking as much as I do, please continue this journey with me.

It’s February Y’all

Month of FebruarySeriously?  February?  I felt like I lost the whole month of January.  And I guess in a way, I did.

On January 5th, my older brother passed away unexpectedly.  For the next three weeks, my mom, dad, sister and I huddled together to grieve, plan, laugh and cry.  On January 22nd, we held a wonderful service to celebrate his life and to thank God for the years He gave us with Chris.

During the weeks I was at home, many friends and family blessed us with homemade treats and meals.  I was even given a secret family recipe for the most amazing spaghetti sauce I’ve ever had. – Thanks Miss Kathy!

So now I’m back home in Tennessee, and ready to get back into my kitchen.  I have a couple of posts scheduled and a couple more ready to write.  I’m looking forward to getting back on schedule and sharing the fun recipes I find.

Here’s to a great February!


I’m taking a break

My family has been touched by loss in the last few days. I covet your prayers for peace and comfort. I’ll be back here soon.



Strawberries and Yogurt

Welcome to Strawberries and Yogurt!

I don’t know about you, but I am a recipe hoarder.  I have cookbooks all over my kitchen.  I have stacks and stacks and notebooks full of recipes that I have pulled out of magazines over the years.  Part of the reason is because I love books and food and paper, and the other reason is because I believe someday I’ll cook all of these wonderful things.

So here’s my idea – start a cooking blog and focus on all of these recipes I’ve wanted to try for so long.  Think I have enough to keep me busy?

I promise to let you know where I got the recipe from.

I promise to let you know if I substitute any ingredients, or change any part of the recipe.

I promise to let you know if the recipe will become part of our regular rotation.

Here’s to some great eatin’!
