Lofty, bold statement, I know, but this here Fresh Herb Vinaigrette is hands down the best dressing I’ve ever thrown together, friends. It’s a flavor bomb, in the lightest, most gorgeous way possible….and will be a new staple in my kitchen without a doubt! Continue reading
Hey gang! It’s been a while! How’s it going in those kitchens of yours? Lots of grilling going on over here and man do I love the lack of prep and cleanup that comes with it. This weather has been so great!
Hey you! How can it be that we’ve been this out of touch?! Are you getting into the swing of your fall routine? This summer seemed to fly by in the blink of an eye. I hope you have been enjoying this crazy, hectic time!
All is so very well over here. We are feeling like we’ve got this “new start” thing down. Georgia is literally jumping with joy about kindergarten so far. She’s been an absolute champ with all of the newness and I couldn’t feel more proud of her. Jude’s doing his part time preschool thing and is loving his own special time with a wonderful teacher and friends…he’s such a little sponge and has an amazing, curious nature. And Rocco, well, chubby, happy and the most sweet spirited little human I’ve ever known. He brings so much joy to all of us.
Having been away from blogging these last few months has really proved to me that a part of my heart truly belongs to you guys. I’ve missed it so much..and the interaction with all of you. I’ve simply been waiting for “that perfect time” to start up again. Waiting for when things slow down and I’ve got more time to plan thoroughly, photograph to my best ability and write in peace and quiet. But guess what? I’ve realized that’s just not going to happen..and I’m totally okay with it as long as you are! Continue reading
I don’t even know where to begin, you guys. I made this dish a while back and I am literally about ready to jump through the screen in an attempt to devour these photos because I want to eat this again immediately. Incredible. Just incredible.
Now let’s just start from the beginning, okay? Urban Halo…yes? No? If you haven’t…you are welcome for the introduction, and I apologize for your addiction all at the same time. I’ve been a fan of this company and their headbands for a solid couple of years and for so many valid reasons…it’s local, started by a fellow mama like myself who was looking to create the most stylish, functional headbands on the planet and I’m pretty sure she has accomplished her mission. These are my gym bff (and they don’t slip!!!)..and they are cute and comfy enough to keep on all day long after my workout. Also, pretty much my saving grace on those rush-out-the-door mornings with no time to do my hair. Not to mention Georgia is also obsessed..and man do they look cute on a silly little five year old, too. So fun to share my stash with her! Continue reading
Oh Lordy. Meet my new best friend, you guys. And I’ve got one lousy photo to prove it…ugh, a food bloggers worst nightmare. I contemplated waiting to take more photos and post this recipe after the next time we have it but you know what? I don’t really think its a good idea for me to wait any longer than necessary to hand this one over to you. It’s a weeknight game changer and it tastes like a giant bowl of happiness. Continue reading
Well guys, we made it. Happy spring! Yay! You know what this means, right? Warmer days ahead, lots of grilling, playtime at the parks, more daylight, fresh produce starting to make it’s way, and….baby! WHOA BABY!
Any ideas or explanations as to how this pregnancy could possibly be going this quickly are completely welcomed, friends, because I am mind-blown at the whole deal. We are finally getting going on bedroom moving, bunking, storage room cleaning, baby gear inventory-ing…you know, all of that good stuff…we are in the home stretch! Which seems a bit crazy, actually a lot crazy, because I swear I just shared the news yesterday, didn’t I? My gosh we can’t wait to meet this little one…all four of us. Continue reading
Now what in the heck was I supposed to call these things, you guys? They are the most random twist on one of my all-time favorite sandwiches and this name was all that my tired, pregnant brain could come up with. If you can come up with a better one, please do share.
Now heres the deal. If you love a good reuben sandwich and you love cabbage you might go wack-a-doodle over this combination. It’s a reuben gone healthful and light…but you won’t for one second miss that bread and cheese, I promise. Continue reading
This salad has been happening since my husband and I were dating. It very well could be the reason he asked me to marry him. And if it is, I am totally okay with that. I will keep feeding him this for better or worse, as long as we both shall live. Of course, as long as he shares with me. Continue reading
What a weekend! Along with some much needed, totally relaxed family time we had a quite a bit of rain around here and it was so cozy. Turned out to be perfect weather for a light, fresh soup. And a giant bowl of Garden Fresh Tomato Basil was just perfection. Continue reading
Weekend warriors! It’s Saturday! What’s the good word?
We have a whole lot of nothing planned this weekend and I just couldn’t be more thrilled about it. The weather here in MN is feeling a bit crisp and fall like-so as you can imagine, I intend on a cozy cup of coffee this morning with my husband who is [finally] back in town and a couple of kids running around in jammies until we decide what random Saturday adventure we would like to partake in. Man, my kind of day. Continue reading
