This & That // Regular updates on your favorite recipes of the week, happenings around the farm, favorite things from around the web, and more!

Hi friends! I’m a little behind in writing my weekly This & That post this week!

What can I say?

School has been out for two days because of the snow (ICE!) and I am not really certain what day of the week it is at any give time.

I do want to share something fun with you all.

I’ll be on Food Network’s The Kitchen Saturday morning sharing my Beef and Bean Casserole with Cornbread Topping from my cookbook.

If you are looking for budget-friendly recipes, I think you’ll enjoy the entire show! It is filled with money-saving meals that you are sure to love!

Can you tell we had a great time?

Of course, I’m the goofy one in blue.

The one trying not to look awkward because there is a camera tracking every move.

The one that was so thankful to have the sweet and spunky Sunny Anderson standing by my side to calm my nerves.

She is just as hilarious in person as she is on television and immediately helped my nerves settle. Thankfully, the segment went by really quickly as well. I am always so afraid that I’m going to miss a key ingredient, say the wrong thing, trip and fall, or somehow sling a pan of food on someone. You know, those things that would be on blooper reels for years and years.


If you do tune in, be sure to give this goofy Mama from Georgia a little leeway in my television skills. I’m more adept at cooking in my own kitchen singing along to Alexa as she blasts away! 🙂

  3. Enjoyed watching you this morning on the Kitchen Robyn! My husband and I each agree that we need to make your Beef and Bean Casserole with Cornbread. I remember you saying the recipe is in your book and I want to buy the book! Is it at Barnes and Noble?

    1. Hi Alice,
      Thank you so much for watching this morning! I sure hope you and your husband enjoy the Beef and Bean Casserole with Cornbread and the cookbook! The cookbook is sold at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Target and many independent booksellers as well! xo

  4. I saw your book at Barnes and Noble in Folsom City.
    I’m definitely going to get it soon.
    I didn’t get a chance to flip through it but I hope it has got a recipe of the decadent chocolate cake that I baked on the stove top back home in the Fiji Islands. 🙂

    1. Hi Gul,
      I can’t wait to hear how you enjoy the cookbook. It does have a chocolate cake recipe in there (German Chocolate Cake), but it is not cooked on the stove top. I’m sorry! xo

  5. Robyn you were great on The Kitchen. I enjoy watching the show and couldn’t wait to see your segment. I felt like a friend was on!  Keep up the great work. 

  6. I just saw you on The Kitchen and thought you did an amazing job!! I’ve been making your delicious recipes for my family this year since I’ve subscribed to your blog. I hope they bring you back on the show soon, maybe you could fill in for Katie or Sunny!!

    1. Thank you so much, Susan! I’m so glad you are enjoying the recipes! Thank you so much for your sweet comment about the show. It sure was fun! 🙂 xo
