Finding fun cake decorating ideas for the men in your life can sometimes be a challenge. Here is a simple cake decorating idea my daughters and I came up with to celebrate my husband's 41st birthday this weekend. While throwing around ideas of what to put on the cake, my oldest asked, "Can you put [...]

I've been trying out my own 'instead of' way of eating lately and have been substituting foods I normally eat with healthier options ('Instead of' honey, use agave...etc) . So far it has been working really well and I feel great. Today I decided to try making hummus to eat with some carrots from our [...]

I can't believe we just passed the first day of summer. Our weather has been absolutely amazing. It's been so wonderful that I don't even mind the rainy days. We do make the most of the sunny days though. Playing in the yard, gardening, working on the deck, and eating outside whenever we can. I [...]

My daughter was home for spring break this past week and we made a list of things we wanted to do. Two of the items were 'bake something' and 'do an experiment'. My girls wanted to decorate a cookie, but I didn't want to make my basic sugar cookies as I just made some the [...]

Cheesy Beef Orzo Recipe

I've been really bad at meal planning lately. Last Friday at 3:00, I realized that I had no clue what we were going to do for dinner. Since our fridge was fairly bare, I didn't have much to work with, but, it turns out, I had what mattered. After raiding the pantry, I threw this [...]

This is a great spice cookie that we usually enjoy during the winter holidays (autumn to Christmas). I found some nice looking persimmons while grocery shopping last week and since they are not grown in North America and rarely imported here during the warmer months, I thought I'd grab some and make these cookies one [...]
