Fed Up 2 Fit: Week 10 Update and 4 Things On My Diet


In the spirit of “keepin’ it real” here at Sprittibee’s blog… I will admit to not tackling the first 7 days of the 17 Day Diet at 100% commitment level. We have had people visit, dinners out, and distractions – which all lead to cave-ins. BUT. I have been good enough to make some really […]

The Whiter the Bread, the Quicker You’re Dead


I wrote this post a long time back and decided to update it and re-post it. This information never gets old.

Buttermilk Biscuits

Another of my husband’s favorite things to make.
