Olivia's sister announcement-5

It was three days before I hopped onto a plane for a much-needed girl’s weekend trip to Deer Valley. After months and months of negative pregnancy tests we finally had a positive one. Now I’m not one to take just one pregnancy test to confirm it. Yes, in fact I took 4 just to...

Peach Galette

Do you ever just sit and scroll through Pinterest just looking at dream homes and the gourmet kitchens that come with them? I have a board just for my one-day dream kitchen and pantry, and I’m hoping that one day it “will” become a reality.  I’m really not asking for much, but since my...

Chocolate Streusel Bars

It was about 8 o’clock in the morning a couple days ago when I saw that my friend Kristen was enjoying a nice big bowl of ice cream for breakfast. Have I ever had ice cream for breakfast? No, but it sounds damn amazing. It made me think about comfort food and how I...

Homemade Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich

At this moment in time I feel like my life is in the fast lane. I’m cruising above 70 mph on the highway and passing all things. How is this even possible when summer isn’t even here and I haven’t traveled in a while? One of these days it will all make sense but...

Hash Brown Sausage Balls

The other day I was checking out classic comfort foods.  You know the ones that we all grew up with and we occasionally want to have for dinner. Somehow, someway my mind drifted from chicken spaghetti to sausage balls. If you’re new to sausage balls it’s the type of food you have for breakfast/brunch...
