Fig Bars

September 5, 2016 in bars - No Comments

I have three 100-year-old maple trees in my yard.  One in the front, one on the side, and one in the back–all closely surrounding my house.  My house is like a cocoon, tucked neatly under the blanket and protection of the leaves.  These trees I love in spring and summer,…

We went on a short camping trip this past weekend, albeit the weather was windy and a bit drizzly.  For me, camping is a time to relax, be with family, and eat a bunch of junk food we normally don’t eat.  In fact, I take the kids with me to…

Every year, our neighborhood has a 4th of July parade and party for the young children.  It starts with a community bike ride at the end of the cul-de-sac, and ends at the local park with games and food.  The kids bikes were packed (as we were going camping a few days…

I have the lucky priviledge of having my parents and my husband’s parents living close by.  And I love it, because my kids get to spend time with both grandparents, something I wish I had growing up.  This Mother’s Day, I had the pleasure of having my in-laws over for…

Creamy Lemon Bars

The weather in the Pacific Northwest has been unusual, to say the least.  Sunny and in the 70s and 80s off and on for the past two weeks–this is not April weather people! Where’s my rain? And my cloudy, 60 degree weather? I am feeling a bit gypped by Mother…

Peanut Butter Fudge Bars

February 26, 2013 in bars - 5 Comments

There’s just something about peanut butter and chocolate.  I don’t know what it is, but it makes me happy.  Every summer during my elementary years, my family would drive 7 hours to camp at Lake Shasta.  There, at a dusty campsite, we would meet my aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents for a…

Chocolate Revel Bars

Hi Long Lost Friends! Since it’s been a little while since I’ve written, I thought that such a salutation was appropriate.  The last time I wrote, I was pregnant.  Well, not anymore! Grace joined our family on November 16th, and Eric and I couldn’t have been happier.  Okay, not happier…

Wednesday is the 100th day of school, so Grace is working on counting out 100 things. I think I am going to run out of tape before she gets to 100. 😳 #100daysofschool #school Writing letters to the kids they sponsor through Africa New Life. 💞#riverwestchurch #africanewlife Went out to get bubble tea and the kids were almost more excited to play in the balls than to drink boba! #funwithkids Making Cranberry Orange Bread with my favorite little man! @glorioustreats —I love your recipe!!! Sorting through the fresh cranberries to find the plump ones was a job Matthew was up to. 😜 #baking #bakersofinstagram #cranberries #cranberryorangebread #bakingwithkids Saturday fun—making a lego city and a creating a valentine’s party for her dolls. #kidplay #dollplay #makebelieve Grace got braces today! And somehow managed to pop a brace off an hour after getting home. 🤦‍♀️
