Am I the only one that feels sorry for gingerbread men?  I do love them once in a while, but sure, they aren’t the most exciting cookie ever, or the sweetest and often I think they get overlooked.  But they’re really a lot of fun, and compared to a lot of other cookies, they do […]

Apparently I’ve been hoarding recipes.  I honestly thought I had nothing to post and I just checked my “to be posted” file on my computer and found a ton of pictures waiting for me to sift through.  So here I am.  I also didn’t just check it, as it’s been a couple hours of sorting, […]

What’s better than playing outside and then sitting in the sun enjoying a popsicle?  The last few days have been cool and not at all popsicle weather here, but I’m hoping it gets hot again soon.  It’s been kind of a disappointing summer so far weather wise but I have to admit it is nice […]

When I was younger and we lived in a different area we lived close enough to huge blueberry farms and my mother and I would go with my grandmother and pick buckets full of fresh blueberries to eat and freeze for later in the year.  I seem to remember disliking the amount of time we […]

Who here doesn’t like breakfast for dinner?  Even before I had kids, breakfast for dinner was awesome.  Pancakes, waffles, or even just eggs and toast.  Yum 🙂  It’s usually so simple and fast that it makes a perfect dinner for those nights when it’s already dinner time and you have no idea what to make.  […]
