For History Jemma and I have been working through The Story of the World. I can’t recommend this series enough, especially the adjoining Activity Book that is full of supplemental ideas and book recommendations. We’ve alternated a week of reading with a week of activities which has led us up to studying the Jewish People […]

For the better part of our marriage, Dominic has raved about this recipe. It’s kind of a wonder I’ve never shared it. Maybe because it’s so simple. But, simple and delicious is where I’m at these days when it comes to meal planning so here it is. I hope your family will be a fan […]

Lemon Meringue

Dominic always requests something lemon flavored for his birthday dessert. All year long I force chocolate down his throat when it comes to desserts, so, being the awesome wife I am, I whip up some lemon deliciousness on his one special day! Then, back to chocolate :) I’ve had this recipe for lemon meringue sitting […]

I am not a chef, not even close. I don’t even have a love for cooking, my sister got those genes … and mad skills. Let me tell you! When I am old and gray I pray she takes me in and keeps my belly full with her amazing recipes. She is only 6 years my junior, but […]

And that, my loves, is why my sister and I plated up blueberry blintzes for breakfast yesterday. Hannah is visiting from Texas this week and crepes/blintzes are her specialty. They’re a little time consuming, but totally worth it. Blintzes taste just […]

It’s not a secret that my Max struggles with food. Well, not all food, just healthy food. He loves chocolate and carbs. I guess he is like me … but with less self-control. Breakfasts are especially a struggle. He does like scrambled eggs, but honestly, we don’t always have time for a hot breakfast around […]

Christmas Eve is tomorrow which means you must which up this recipe stat! It’s seriously the coziest breakfast to have ready to go (I recommend prepping the night before) for family gatherings and holidays. Honestly, just looking at it is making my mouth water while I check the pantry for ingredients! I first met French […]

Today is a day for memory lane. Walk with me … Back in our college days, Dominic and I were living in a school-sponsored apartment complex. Read, we used our student loans to pay rent; so convenient, so dumb. My front door faced his back porch in neighboring buildings and thanks to our interaction in a number […]

Sour Cream Pancakes

This summer our pastor spoke quite a bit about building community and being proactive in our lives beyond church. I’ll admit, I often find myself overwhelmed with my day to day duties as a mom and the idea of “building” and being “proactive” sounds like too big of a commitment for my schedule. Just the same, […]
