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…

Frozen Hot Chocolate

“I can resist anything except temptation.” Oscar Wilde As an English major in college and an English teacher these past 12 years, I have read my fair share of great classic literature.  Oscar Wilde wrote my favorite play, The Importance of Being Earnest, and if you have not read it,…

Raspberry Crumb Bars

July 12, 2016 in bars - 2 Comments

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…

Lemon Icebox Pie Ice Cream

Basil Pesto

July 24, 2012 in misc. - 4 Comments

I love basil; it smells unbelievably like summer.  Every year, I grow too much basil; and every year, I try to pack in as much pesto and basil-y type lunches and dinners as I can.  So far, this summer in the Pacific Northwest has been quite nice–mostly in the high 70s…

Pecan-Oreo Fudge Bars

Eric and I went camping for the first time with our one-year-old son.  It was actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be.  (Camping with a child is a new adventure for us.) We went floating on an inner-tube in a lazy river, played with my sister’s…
