Blue Plum Crisp

These are one of my favorite fall fruits and often a misunderstood one.  These are blue plums.  I’ve also heard of them being called Italian blue plums or prune plums.  We usually dry some, and technically make prunes, but these are nothing like any prunes I’ve ever had before so we usually just refer to […]

It’s been quite a while since Ashley posted all of her banana scrambles, but I just have to post the formula that I use(based off a bunch of her different recipes) because we love these things.  They’re awesome for breakfast, either on the go in a bun or english muffin or even in a wrap […]

Up until Tuesday we were a one car family.  It never really bothered me much.  I don’t mind scheduling things for one day when we can drop my husband off at work and take the car for the day, and even that was a rare occurrence.  There really isn’t anything that exciting going on in […]
