Cranberry Zucchini Muffins

August 5, 2018 in muffins - 1 Comment

My mom has an amazing garden, and every summer, I am the happy recipient of her bounty.  If I’m lucky, she shares her marionberries with me.  (Mom, if you’re reading this, can you pick a pint for me?)  A few weeks ago she gave me some zucchini.  “I have too…

Energy Bites

July 23, 2018 in misc. - No Comments

I am always amazed at the amount of energy children have.  We went camping last week in 90+ degree weather and the kids were running around, riding their bikes, and playing frisbee–all in the ridiculous heat.  I sat in the shade and just watched.  (Just look at their hot, sweaty…

Classic Biscuits

July 14, 2018 in breads - No Comments

I love a good biscuit.  Flaky, warm, and soft.  Eat it with jam or butter or a good white gravy.  Doesn’t matter, I love it any way. I made these biscuits to serve a dual purpose.  One, obviously, was to eat it with dinner.  But two, I needed to have…

Raspberry Bars

July 2, 2018 in bars - 2 Comments

Raspberries are by far my favorite fruit.  I love them in anything and everything.  Growing up, my mom, sisters, and I would go to fruit orchards and pick pounds of raspberries, blueberries, and peaches.  We froze the berries and canned the peaches.  There’s nothing like fresh fruit in the winter…

Potato Salad

June 25, 2018 in misc., salad - No Comments

Picnics and barbeques are some of my favorite summer activities.  Our summers in the Pacific Northwest are pretty mild, so we take advantage of all opportunities to get outside and enjoy the sun.  The kids have just figured out how fun squirt guns are, so I feel like I am…

If you’re looking for a lemon tea cookie that has a hint of lavender, then this is the cookie for you, my friend.  They’re small and bite-sized, perfect with any tea or tall glass of milk.  My kids love lavender, and when they saw I was making these, their little…

Chicken Quesadillas

May 22, 2018 in dinner - No Comments

 As you mostly likely know, cheese quesadillas are one of the quickest, easiest meals to make.  They are also probably one of the least nutritious.  However, cook up some chicken and add veggies, and you have yourself a healthier, more satisfying meal. My dad used to make these for dinner…

Lemon-Blueberry Muffins

May 8, 2018 in breakfasts, muffins - No Comments

It was a special occasion when I would get to spend the night at my grandparents’ house.  My grandma would make my favorite meal and after dinner was over, we would play cards until my bedtime.  In the morning, she had a warm breakfast ready and waiting for me, usually…
