The House on High Street

Everybody likes a good DIY Makeover story, right? Well, here you go…

I’m not sure why, but every time I turn around, my Mother-in-Law is dropping something off to my house. Evidently, Scott was a collector and cluttered up her house for twenty-some years. I think this is pay back time because almost every time she visits, we seem to collect more of his old stuff and some of hers, too. 

5 Things to Make Your Thanksgiving Holiday Extraordinary

The House on High Street

I don’t know about you, but on one hand, it seems like yesterday we were celebrating our First Thanksgiving at The House on High Street. It was a success, and Scott and I had a lot of fun doing it.  (I’m considering doing another Facebook LIVE series throughout the holiday season, so you’ll have to keep watch for that on Facebook.) As much as Pinterest, sometimes, overwhelms me- I remember finding some pretty extraordinary ideas on there. Such as these personalized place settings, that I made last year. 

Beef Stew

Recipes

This is the best time of year to make soups, stews, and hot casseroles. I especially love how you can throw a lot of these hot dishes into a crock pot and completely forget about it, until dinner time! Beef stew is one of my favorites. So, I decided to create a simple yet delicious recipe, from scratch. 

Bruce's Chicken & Sausage Gumbo

Recipes

Friends, I am thrilled to share this extraordinary recipe that was graciously given to me, by very dear friends. It’s a knock-your-socks-off crowd pleaser. Very easy to make. And, it goes a long way! Aside from my visit to New Orleans, about fifteen years ago, I had never eaten chicken & sausage gumbo like this. Thank you, Ellen & Bruce!
