That does sound heavenly, […]

Summer Strawberry Crumb

A little rhubarb and a lot of strawberries together topped with oatmeal makes a pretty fantastic summer crumb.

S’mores Brownies

I love summer for a lot of reasons. But one thing I have really grown to love since marrying my husband is the outdoors. And of course with that we love hiking, fishing and camping. With a newborn it will be a little harder for us to go camping this summer. But that doesn’t mean […]
