Hello! It has been a while since my last post. As the holidays came upon us, I not only ran out of time to blog but I also kind of needed a break. For about a week and a half, I didn’t write and I didn’t really photograph the food that I made either, even […]

Camping Weekend – with delicious campout food!

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! You know how fresh air supposedly wears you out? I am pretty sure that’s true, because when we got back from a quick overnight camping trip with our good friends Pete and Aggie (and their little one), I trudged blindly up the stairs, grabbed the soft […]

Vacay/Staycay + Garden Update

Welcome to the first garden update in many months! Thank God it is finally spring. For most of the past week, I had my friend-since-we-were-approximately-15 Mary here to visit. Hi, Mary!
