5 Songs to Get You Excited for Valentine's Day, Picked by Jackie


These are some of my all-time favorite love songs, songs that make me think of love, or just put me in a generally happy mood! Check out this not-so-infinite playlist and let me know some of your favorite love songs too!

1. Remedy, Adele

This song holds such a special place in my heart. My first dance with my husband at our wedding was to Remedy and (after watching our wedding video over and over I can confirm) there was not a dry eye in the whole venue. What makes this song special to me is that not only did my husband pick it out, but he also explained why with such a thoughtful reason. He said that no matter what, that he would always be there to protect me and provide remedy. *Swoons*

2. Call Me Al, Paul Simon

I know, I know. How can I go from Adele to this crazy tune? Truth be told, this is one of my favorite songs to jam to (plus Africa by Toto but that won't be on this blog). This isn't necessarily a "love song" but it has a funky beat and you can't beat Chevy Chase in the music video. This is just a fun, quirky song that makes me want to sing in my car with the windows down.

3. Shallow, Bradley Cooper & Lady Gaga

Wow. Just wow. I saw A Star is Born in theaters and from the first time I heard this original song, I couldn't keep the tears in. This is such a powerful song with a deep understanding of having someone be there for you. The live version of the two of them together *literally* made my jaw drop. I think that this was a well deserved Oscar win!

4. Don't Want to Miss a Thing, Aerosmith

Funny story, but when I was maybe about 8 or so years old, I was in a dance recital and it was video taped. Much to my family's annoyance, after we recieved the tape post-show, it was the ONLY thing I wanted to watch. Long story short, there was an experienced semi-professional dancer that did a solo to this song and I remember trying to learn the choreography thinking I could dance like her one day (spoiler alert, I can't).

5. Love on Top, Beyonce

How can you not bop along to this gem of a song? This is a feel-good, get your foot tapping, finger-snapping jam. This has an old school influence that I love, and can we talk about the 857 key changes in this song?! Beyonce is a true talent and one of my favorite artists of all time. Anyone else remember when she performed this live and announced that she was pregnant with her first child? Goosebumps!

To say my music taste is all over the board would be an understatement. Hopefully I have introduced you to some new music or helped you rediscover some classics. Add these to your playlist to have a smile worthy moment in your day! Check out our Valentine's Day Vlog to learn a little more about us!

How to Set (and Keep!) NYE Resolutions


Well, that time of year has hit us again! The pressure to pick (and stick to) a goal for the entire year is mounting, and it seems next to impossible. Lucky for you, I have some tips that have helped me get on track and allow me to set and reach my annual resolutions! Here are some tips that I like to use when setting my own goals.

1. Set Realistic Goals

If you set unrealistic goals for yourself, you are only going to be disappointed. You should instead set an achievable goal, and then move to another once you hit it! If I tell myself that my resolution is to have a clean house every night before I go to bed, I will constantly be exhausted by cleaning every day (because let's be real, mess happens every day!). Rather than be disappointed that I am not reaching my goal each night, I should set a more manageable goal of saying I will clean ONE room entirely before bed. This way I can celebrate achieving my goals and reward myself for a job well done, rather than be upset by not hitting goals.

2. Get Proper Tools

Whether it's a planner, work out gear, a meal planning guide, or any other tools to help you achieve goals, it is so important that you set yourself up for success. If you don't have the necessary tools to help you in your journey to achieving your resolutions, you can imagine how much harder it will be on you to meet them. Set yourself up with a budget and buy/source out any tools or items you may need. You will thank yourself later!

3. Celebrate Achievement

Go ahead, you deserve it! However you choose to reward yourself, make sure that you are doing so often. Who doesn't like a little positive reinforcement?! If you don't want to worry about rewarding yourself, have a friend monitor your goals and have them surprise you once you have completed them. You have set these goals with the intentions of bettering yourself, and along the way, you deserve to be treated for a job well done!

4. Commit Time to Your Goals

Just like the proper tools, if you do not set aside the time to work on your resolutions, they may as well not have been made. Waking up earlier to make coffee rather than going through the drive through for example, can lend more time into your schedule to work on other projects, goals, or tasks. After you have set the time aside, once you have surpassed your goals you can then reallocate that time to work on something new. Maybe a new hobby, or taking extra time to set/crush another goal!

5. Hold Yourself Accountable

Just as you would another friend, you need to make sure that you are keeping yourself on track. I'm not for sending yourself on a guilt trip, but you set these goals for a reason. You should be able to stick to them and know *why* it is so important to realize your objective. Don't feel sorry that you may have missed a day with your new resolution, but rather set yourself back on the right track and have the strength to keep going! We are not judged for our missteps, but rather, but the steps we didn't take!

I hope that this helps you in your planning/execution of your new resolutions for 2020. As we enter a new decade, let's work on being our best selves, however we choose to make that happen!

Love, Jackie

A Southern Grace Thanksgiving


Southern Must Haves for Your Thanksgiving - Make some of the team's favorite dishes to celebrate with your friends & family this year!

(Credit goes to Basics with Babish)


Cut your onions into halves, then thinly slice with a mandolin. Soak onion strings in the buttermilk for ~15 minutes. Drain and coat in your flour mixture. Once the excess flour has been shaken off, fry in 300*F vegetable oil until golden brown (about 7-9 minutes). Once they have slightly cooled, season with a pinch of your salt!

Stem, crush, & chop all of your cremini mushrooms. Sautée in a sauce pan with the butter. Add in your flour to create a roux. Add in your crushed garlic, and simmer for another minute or so. ADDITIONAL STEP: Add your cognac to deglaze your pan (it should be said here that when I attempted this step, I about flambéed my eyebrows off). Pour in your chicken stock, heavy cream, and dash of soy sauce. Simmer until rich & thick.

Once you have your green beans trimmed of the ends, cut into 1" pieces. Par-boil the green beans and then chill in an ice bath; this will help them keep their structure and not go mushy once in the oven. Once you have strained your beans, add in your Cream of Mushroom Soup and about half of your french fried onions. Mix well and pour into a generously greased pan. Bake in the oven at 350* for 15-20 minutes, then, uncover and add the remaining onions. Bake for another 5 minutes to get the top layer nice and crisp.


Spray a 9 by 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the onions, celery, and apples to the butter and season with salt and pepper. Sauté until the celery and onion are translucent, about five minutes. Mix in sage and thyme. Remove from the heat.

In a large bowl, coat the bread with the eggs. Mix in the veggie/butter mixture. Then mix in the parmesan cheese.

Pour the stuffing mixture into the greased pan, pouring the chicken stock over it. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for 25-30 minutes longer.


Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 2 or 2 1/2 quart casserole dish and set aside. Place the peeled & chopped sweet potatoes in a large pot, cover with water, and boil until tender (about 7 minutes, depending on the size). Drain and return to the pot. Add butter, milk, cinnamon, brown sugar and salt to the potatoes and mash until smooth. Use a hand mixer, if desired, to make them extra smooth. Taste the potatoes and add additional seasonings, if desired.

Transfer the mashed potatoes to the prepared casserole dish. Place in the oven until heated through (if they're warm it will only take a few minutes).

While the sweet potatoes are heating, prepare the topping. In a medium bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and pecans. Stir until thoroughly combined.

Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven. Top with half the marshmallows, then sprinkle half the streusel over the marshmallows. Alternate with the remaining marshmallows and streusel. Place back into the oven for 8-15 minutes, until the topping is bubbly and brown (keep an eye on it so the marshmallows don't burn).

(Credit goes to Karo Syrup)


Add Karo syrup, sugar, butter, and vanilla extract together. Mix on medium speed until combined. Add in one egg at a time until completely mixed together. Slowly start to add your pecans in a little at a time. Tip: add a pinch of nutmeg for a touch of warm spice!

Roll out your pie crust (at room temperature) into a 9" round pie pan. Crimp edges into a decorative pattern. Add your pecan mixture into the pie dish and place in 350* oven for 55-70 minutes. Center of pie should reach 200*F, or when touched spring back to hold its shape.

The response from wholesale customers was huge!
