Chocolate Spice Bars

October 8, 2018 in bars, chocolates - 1 Comment

I am sure you have noticed this already, but why is it that retailers and grocery stores like to be one step ahead of the season?  In late August, Costco had Halloween costumes for sale.  I was back last weekend picking up glasses for my hubby, (who is struggling with…

Espresso Brownies

August 16, 2018 in bars - 1 Comment

I don’t think I’ve met a chocolate dessert I haven’t liked.  Wait.  That isn’t true.  I don’t like chocolate ice cream and I don’t like chocolate cake.  Weird. I know.  Other than those two desserts, every chocolate dessert I have had, I have liked. Homemade brownies are one of my…

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…

Lemon-Lavender Shortbread Cookies

June 19, 2018 in cookies - 1 Comment

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…

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. 🤦‍♀️
