*I received two six pound bags of Zero Grain Dog Food if I would post my review on it. I was not otherwise compensated. All opinions are my own. If you know our family, you know that our dog Aspen is like a member of the family. He’s my baby (along with our cat) and […]
I have learned to love pulled pork since I worked at Legends Grille on BYU campus. One of my favorites was my altered Cubano sandwich – because I didn’t really like pickles or mustard I would make it with the pulled pork, ham, swiss cheese and top it all with barbeque sauce. We got 50% […]
We have rosemary growing in our herb box in our garden. Rosemary, sage, oregano, basil, cilantro, chives and a few more. With a total of 12 different herbs that we are trying to grow. Trying being the key word here because for some reason we still haven’t had any sprouts of mint come up, and […]
When I first saw the idea for an alfredo lasagna, I knew that it was something I must try. I mean, who doesn’t love lasagna? And with alfredo sauce? Sounds amazing! I came across this delicious looking Veggies Alfredo Lasagna from Pinch of Yum and decided it would be the one I would try. The […]
Did you know prosciutto means ham? In Italy, it refers to any kind of ham. In the United States it refers to the thin, thin ham you purchase from the deli that is cured. For this recipe you will be using ham; such as spiral cut ham (in this case leftover and frozen from Easter […]
As I said in my Strawberry Lemonade post I got an abundance of strawberries from Costco and needed to think of different ways to use them up. I have been wanting to make blueberry muffins for a while now, but with my extra strawberries I decided that strawberry muffins would be just as good or […]
I heard of Walking Tacos a couple months ago, I think from a friend on Instragram (Be sure to follow us!). I was of course curious, but until recently didn’t look into them much further. What is a walking taco you ask? It’s pretty funny to call them that I think, because 1 there is […]
This strawberry lemonade is made from fresh squeezed lemons, strawberry puree, simple syrup and water. Its a very easy recipe, but the result is a fantastic mix of the strawberry and lemon flavors. This delicious lemonade is perfect for a warm summer day. It’s not extra sweet, but just enough sugar is added to keep […]
One of the first dishes I remember making on my own was during my freshman year in college, baked carrots.
Who knew that following a recipe was so important? If you know me, I like to take a recipe and tweak it to my own liking, a little less sugar, a little more spices, substitutions based on whats available in my kitchen, and more. Funnily enough this mistake I made had nothing to do with substituting ingredients and all […]
Its really fun having a husband who enjoys cooking almost as much as I do. Of course Nate usually does the “outdoor” cooking, you know grilling, anything over the camp fire and with our smoker. We actually do a lot of cooking indoors together as well, depending on what we’re making, but pizza, pasta, tacos, […]
I have found a new favorite dessert recipe. Simple, healthy and delicious. Healthy dessert you ask? It’s true. Fruit and Yogurt Parfait Perfection. Low fat vanilla yogurt, a few tablespoons of fresh berries and homemade (or store bought) granola on top. Serious perfection. This “recipe” is only three ingredients and only five simple steps too. […]
Memorial Day, it is more than just a time for BBQs with family or friends. Almost every Memorial Day, while I was growing up our family visited and decorated grave sites with home grown flowers; like peonies, lilacs, and roses.
On Tuesday night I joined an amazing group of ladies at a fun “Blogger’s Picnic in the Park”. We went to Rock Canyon Park in Provo (which is actually where Nate proposed to me 3 years and a few months ago – maybe I’ll write our story for this blog one day) and had some […]
