Hello! How was your weekend? We picked out our Christmas tree and got the house a little bit festive. First time to a u-cut tree farm!   Today’s recipe comes courtesy of my Secret Recipe Club assignment for the month The Hobo Kitchen… bites from a little kitchen in Hoboken. Ellie writes and shares fun […]

Hello!  Happy Thanksgiving Eve!  How’s your Thanksgiving looking this year?  We’ll be attending 2 Thanksgiving dinners (one Thursday and one Friday).  I have my contributions all planned out and everything purchased so no last minute grocery store trips should be required.  Some of this afternoon will be prepping foods, but I’ll mostly do the actual […]

Hello!  How’s it going?  I hope your weekend is ending on a good note.  We had a mellow Sunday since most of us actually woke up feeling crummy.  Saturday was a fun day, especially for the boys.  Jacob and Hunter had a father-son day that included a ho scale model train show in Portland and […]

There are some flavor profiles I just love… like anything with peanut sauce is a win.  Obviously.  Coconut curry sauce is another one.  There’s something about the refreshing coconut milk paired with spiced up curry that mixes perfectly.  You can make curry hot, or keep it mild.  I tend to keep it milder for my […]

I sure love eggs.  And I know I’ve said it many, many times before and it still holds true. Guess who else loves eggs?  Corey from Learning Patience. (Psssst!  She’s my Secret Recipe Club pick of the month!)  In fact, when she started out a post by saying “Eggs are one of my favorite foods,” […]

It’s been an oddly hot summer here in Washington.  Although we have 90 degrees predicted for this weekend, fall is definitely in the air.  I can start to feel a change in season.   I want to do yard work again, yay!  While browsing through some pictures from a few months ago I came across our […]

peanut butter, raisin and bean snacker cookies

We all have rough days. Hunter recently had one (lots of tears throughout the day + waking up really sad from his nap). I find that there’s normally a reason for these rougher days: poor night sleep or nap, not eating well or a tooth bothering him are the usual culprits. On that particular day, […]

almond blueberry pie bars

Hello! Hope your weekend has been filled with lots of fun and good food.  My cooking lately has been limited to breakfast and a little bit of baking.  We’ve had so many friends and family members bring us dinner, along with the freezer meals I prepped have left me not having to make dinner… although […]

my favorite chickpea veggie burger recipe

If you follow me on Instragram, you’ve seen me post these yummy veggie burgers a few times now. I’ve eaten my fair share of them without any photographic proof too.  They are just so good!  Back in January I made a big double batch for the freezer, for when baby arrives.  I knew Jacob wouldn’t […]
