Savannah Bee Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I know that Thanksgiving is all about tradition and family, but sometimes it’s good to mix things up a little bit. I grew up in the South and sweet potatoes have always been a part of my family’s Thanksgiving dinner tradition. I’m talking about the kind of sweet potatoes that have been reduced with butter…

Fall From A Beekeeper’s Perspective.

Today we mowed in our flower garden that was full of Zinnias. It is tough to destroy the hold-out flowers and the upcoming buds that have been hanging on and blooming on a mostly dried up plant. So we did one last picking of the flowers before the mowers arrived. I now have a big…

Honey Pecan Pie (Not Just for the Holidays)

Growing up in the South, I learned at a very young age that Pecan pie is awesome. The only problem with Pecan pie is that people tend to only serve this delight during the holidays. This is great and all but the holidays only come around once a year. As a Pecan pie lover, I…

I saw a post on Facebook last Friday that said there were only eight more weeks until the holidays. I tried not to panic, poured a cup of hot tea and sat down with a pen and paper starting to write down the loved ones names I needed to buy gifts for. Now, I have…
