Apples Vert

Baby Boy Joy {Recipe: Oven Baked Cinnamon Apples}

9 1/2 years ago, we welcomed our first baby into our family. It seems like such a long time ago, looking back. I remember specific moments with Jacob that I don’t remember with my three girls. There’s the first time he fell asleep in his high chair with a mouth and face full of food. […]

Crockpot Confusion {Recipe: Slow Cooker Coffee & Garlic Roast Beef}

As I was typing the title for this blog post this morning, I got stumped…. I used a Rival Crock-Pot to make the Coffee and Garlic Roast Beef for these sandwiches, but my fingers wanted to type crockpot. I went to my Facebook and Twitter friends to find out the important answer to this most […]

Post-Summer Mama Guilt {Recipe: Ham and Egg Breakfast Cups}

I start each summer off with high hopes and big plans. We make summer “bucket lists” – essentially outlining the fun things we want to do before summer ends. In reality, I spend the last one to two weeks of summer cramming in as much activity as I can so I don’t suffer the post-summer […]

Give Grace

My brother, Larry, lost his valiant 2-month battle with cancer early this morning. I was fortunate enough to be there when he passed. Hearing his wife visually walk him “home” to heaven where other friends and relatives eagerly awaited his arrival and seeing how that led him to his peaceful final breath was something I […]

Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie with Biscoff Cookie Crust – for Mikey

I collapsed into bed, exhausted. Dealing with my brothers illness has taken a toll on me I never expected. When a family member is dying I’m discovering there are a lot of eggshells to be walked on. Am I doing enough? Am I intruding? Am I annoying them calling and checking on things when in […]

Leftover Bread {Recipe: Bread Machine Challah}

I see recipes all over the web that call for leftover or day old bread. Bread pudding,  French toast, homemade croutons… I bookmark these recipes, thinking someday I’ll make them. The problem is my family doesn’t seem to know what leftover bread or day old bread is. It doesn’t exist. I make bread, I serve […]

$600 American Express Gift Card Giveaway {Recipe: Biscoff Pudding}

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram you have probably noticed I’ve been going a bit crazy for Biscoff cookies lately. I first discovered their cookies when on a Delta flight. I was sitting next to a lovely lady and we both bit into our cookies and were immediately smitten. In fact, […]

Oven Baked Chicken Wings with Sweet BBQ Sauce

I used to not like chicken on the bone. In fact, was quite grossed out when it came to anything you had to pick up and gnaw off the bone. My world consisted of boneless, skinless chicken breasts and that was it. A door opened up for me when I eventually tried what are now […]

The One Where I Ignore the Mess {Recipe and Video: Oobleck}

We had fun today… Oh, yes we did… lots and lots of fun… and to be honest with you, it was all kind of by accident… All because I made a promise to my 5 year old that we’d do something really special this afternoon while Kelly (7) was at a sleepover. The promises of […]
