   Oh. My. Goodness. I cannot wait for you to try this recipe! Grilled cheese has always been a comfort food of mine so when the weather cools and the holidays are around the corner, you can pretty much bet that grilled cheese is on my mind. But, as I’ve gotten older, wiser, and more […]

Awhile back (summer 2016 to be exact), baby Reid and I made the trek to Texas to visit my sister. There, I fell in love with Tex-Mex. Deep, cheesy, fresh salsa, Tres Leches kinda love. Upon arriving home, I craved all the things and nothing in the Northwest quite compares to the food scene in Texas. […]

Square Harvest Muffins, AKA Harvest Bread

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 […]

With Spring around the corner I’m all “goodbye oatmeal, hello fresh flowers and brunch perfect recipes”! 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 […]

Banana Apple Oat Muffins

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 […]
