the cabin I have spent the Christmas weekend with my family at my parents’ cabin in the woods- it is picturesque and perfect for a holiday. It is rustic and has no internet, which provides a nice break, and yet, isn’t great for blog-posting. So now that we are home, I can send this post! … Continue reading Chocolate Fun-Do

When I was a kid, we made these easy donuts every time we had a sleep-over! They are made from refrigerated biscuit dough. My mom always cooked them in Crisco- right in the big metal Crisco can. We always coated them in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. I have made them from time to time, … Continue reading Slumber Party Donuts
I love New Year’s Eve! Not because I get dressed up and go out on the town ringing in the new year. (If you know me or my life circumstances, then you know that is not the case.

I can’t really remember life before Asher, but I certainly can’t believe I have a 10 year old, and that we are fast approaching adolescence! I debated on whether or not to post about his birthday celebrating because I have already written … Continue reading Double-Digit Birthday Boy Celebrating!
Maybe it’s because my mom always made Valentine’s Day fun, or maybe because it is my birthday month, or maybe because it is something pretty and fun in the middle of winter, but I love Valentine’s Day. And it’s not because I am a romantic. Because I’m not. In fact, the cheesiness of Valentine’s grosses … Continue reading Valentine Fun

They are fairly deprived of access to homemade goodies. So, it doesn’t take much … Continue reading Cookie Dough & College Students
I’ve been wanting to share this recipe with you because it has been a gift in my nutritional life lately. However, I haven’t known the best timing. December doesn’t seem the month, as many a-post on Instagram and the world wide web are filled with *stunningly beautiful baked goodies*. It seems that a post of … Continue reading Power Muffins: Fuel for the Day
There is nothing like food, in my opinion, to transport you to another place. Whether it is a food memory from a place I’ve been that lodges so deeply in my mind, or whether it is a food that is shared locally by a person from a far off land as an introduction to their … Continue reading Eton Mess: A Recent Introduction to an English Classic
We had an exhilarating and exhausting ride down the rapids, managing to stay in the raft! Then we all piled into our cars to drive to a riverside cafe to share a meal. I have no idea what I ordered for my main dish- a salad, a sandwich or wrap… I don’t recall. But what … Continue reading Cool Jules: A Food Memory I Can’t Shake
