Summer Strawberry Crumb

A little rhubarb and a lot of strawberries together topped with oatmeal makes a pretty fantastic summer crumb. My mother had the most amazing rhubarb plant growing in our family garden.  It seemed it would take over the whole garden bed if allowed. My mom loved rhubarb, I believe it […]

Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Last week I made a fresh batch of snickerdoodle cookies, although I would’ve been perfectly happy eating all the delicious cookies as is. I also had some extra vanilla ice cream in the freezer and I decided, how good would some snickerdoodle ice cream sandwiches be? You can use whatever […]

Creamy Italian Chicken and Vegetables over Pasta

This an amazing combination of chicken and vegetables over pasta. The other day at work, Shelby and I were discussing what we were going to make for dinner. Sometimes you just have moments like that, food is what is on your mind and you really can use some new dinner […]

Chocolate Mint Brownies

This is another wonderful way to jazz up boxed brownies – make chocolate mint brownies.  Now I know you think I am talking about adding mint flavoring to the box brownies mix but I am really talking about adding the real deal.  I have an herb growing in my backyard […]


Celebrating the Bright Side of Life with Fruttare Frozen Fruit Bars

As a new mother, its hard not to complain sometimes when you feel exhausted after not getting more than a few hours of sleep a night and you feel like your baby is crying all day long. I finally feel like I’m getting in a routine with Colby and he […]


flourless peanut butter cookie square

Around the interwebs, I’ve seen a few recipes for flourless peanut butter cookies, claiming they were as good as regular peanut butter cookies. I was a little skeptical, but considering how much I love peanut butter cookies I figured I should give it a try. Now, I do still love […]

chili pork tacos1square

Do you think it is a dangerous thing to experiment with new foods when you are feeding your mother-in-law?  Apparently I don’t.  Probably because I have the most easy going, positive, and uplifting mother-in-law around.  So I didn’t think I would fail by cooking up chili verde pork tacos.  It […]

lemon sugar cookies1 square

It was fun to make these lemon sugar cookies, I dusted them with lemon sugar that I made from lemon zest and sugar.  Lemon sugar is simple to make and a fun diversion from regular white sugar.  Just imagine the zippy tang it would add to your morning cereal.   […]

You guys, I’m gonna be honest. My husband is the brains behind like half of my recipes. I’ll have an idea and he’ll just add to it and make it even better. So basically I’ve been a slacker when it comes to blogging since having a baby. Thankfully, we had […]

**I received free product in exchange for doing this review, but was not otherwise compensated. All opinions are my own. Sunday was Father’s Day, as you know. And unfortunately I made Nate cook his own dinner. The fortunate part for him (and me) was that this meant he could grill […]


Sweet and salty is all the rage and yes I am jumping on the bandwagon.  I don’t know exactly what it is about the combination but it is wonderful.  These sweet and salty magic bars will satisfy both your sweet tooth and your craving for salt.  Reality is they are […]

seafood salad2sqauare

Oh, my goodness – I wasn’t very creative when it came to naming this salad; basically it just describes the healthy and delicious ingredients that you build the salad with.  I could call it a dump salad because almost everything was leftovers from a previous meal and all added together […]
