Good morning everyone. This morning was definitely not a morning that I wanted to get up. I had a kid up all night coughing and I forgot how cold a room can get during the fall and winter months when you don’t turn on the heat. Burr, talk about not wanting to leave the covers. But obviously I obliged and got myself out of bed and got the kids up and dressed for school. Now I am sitting here writing this post as I drool over what it is about.  Read more

Another Thursday is upon us! I hope you all join us for tonight’s Throwback Thursday link party! Whoop! So I’ve been thinking a lot lately about game day snacks. Or heck just any appetizer, dips, finger food in general because it just happens to be my favorite….EVA! Yup, I will sit down and eat appetizers and graze all day if I had the chance, not even sorry for that. Couldn’t care less about a full meal again as long as I got multiple little munching options.  Read more

Have you guy’s ever woke up just famished? That is me this morning. I am so hungry but do not know what to do about it. Yes I know why don’t I just eat something? Like i said before, I’m not a breakfast person so I don’t usually eat breakfast food. I’ll probably devour any sweets that I have laying on my counter because that’s just what I do! That’s acceptable breakfast food right? It’s giving me fuel for the day. Granted I’ll probably have a sugar crash but naps are cool too. I can do that. I’m allowed. Read more

Football season is finally underway! Whoop! Now my husband and I aren’t big sports people, but my 10-year-old is! He is the student manager for the varsity football team at the local school and he loves it. He get’s to be right up front in the action and get’s to participate in the practices and interact with the players on a daily basis. Besides doing that he is a big ESPN fan and watches every sport imaginable. So needless to say if I care of not, I get score updates on pretty much any game that is currently on.  Read more

You can serve them savory or sweet, I love devouring mine with syrup on top, nummo. Read more

Another Monday is upon us. I am not a Monday person, I enjoy my weekends and the time I actually get to spend with my family. My husband works longer hours so we don’t get to see him as much as we used to so the weekends are a big deal around here. It’s more of less when things get done. Well I get stuff done during the week, but besides cooking and cleaning, the weekends are for groceries, house projects family outings, etc.. Whomever decided that the weekends should just be two days can kiss my you know what Lol, just kidding.  Read more

Good morning everyone. It is seriously unseasonably cold here in Minnesota the last few days. This past weekend we had our 90 degree hot and humid normal which I admittedly love. Now its only the high of like 63, what gives? This is too cold for my liking. I’m speaking more from always being absolutely freezing and not circulating the way it is. I suppose it is something that I will just have to adjust. Boo. Read more

Howdy howdy my friends! If you haven’t been to a picnic or family get together yet this year and haven’t had something similar to this post then you’re in luck. This is my absolute favorite potluck dish. So healthy but yet so so so good. Filled to the brim with veggies and beans, marinated and then served with chips. What gets better than that! Read more
