Features, Food, and a CAR!

First off, I'm horrible and should have thanked It's a Keeper and Cupcake Apothecary  for featuring my recipes last week.

These lemon sugar cookies were in the top six at Cupcake Apothecary.

The buttermilk pork chops (also known as the ruler of all pork chops) was featured at It's a Keeper.

I can't thank these ladies enough! This was my first time being featured anywhere and they both so happened to be in the same week! I'm so honored. :)

What else is new? I made this AMAZING hamburger Tuesday night.

Caramelized onions, swiss cheese, lettuce, and spicy mayo. OMG, so good! Yes yes, I will share.

And then....on Wednesday night, we bought a CAR!!

I don't think you understand. We've only had one car since moving to Michigan. We used to have two cars, but they both went kaput. Literally. So we lived with one car that my parents so graciously gave us and whenever the hubby needed to be on campus, we dealt with odd drop off and pick ups, with me getting to work early, staying later, begging for rides (thanks neighbor!!) and calling cabs. Needless to say this is a HUGE stress reliever, as the hubby will begin rotations next week and will work all sorts of weird hours. One car wasn't going to cut it. This is going to be life-changing!

Alrighty folks, you've been updated on the This Woman Cooks! household. Thanks for reading. :)


  1. Everything looks amazing! Congtats!

  2. Congrats on the new car! Looks nice! Burger looks great! I've been making burgers and BLTs lately, all my favorite summer foods :)

  3. Ah, congrats! That must be a huge stress off your shoulders! And that burger looks ridiculously good! Can't wait for the recipe!

  4. We only have one car, too. My husband has classes Mon-Thurs so he either rides his bike or we do a dropoff. The bonus is that my son goes to preschool on the same campus so I can drop them both off at the same time.


Thanks for stopping by!
