It’s too hot to bake. Literally. It’s not even July, and I am dreading turning on the oven some days. Now, don’t get alarmed, I am still finding time to bake a little here and there…. but yikes! Crock pot and BBQ meals made my menu this week. At least some days my kitchen won’t […]

My kiddos love them with a side of ranch dressing. Lettuce- that wintered over from last year. Made our salad extra delicious. […]

I have been spending a lot of time in my gardens. These are some of my favorite things, not in my kitchen. Dirt therapy has become my salvation. Face it, it’s cheaper than retail therapy, right? And during the heat, who wants to bake all day long anyway? Well, I still do some days 🙂 […]

What’s for dinner this week? Only our favorite recipes. I made The Pioneer Woman’s recipe for Pinto Beans, added some cilantro, garlic, and salt and pepper- they were the perfect topping to the Navajo Tacos. The recipe makes enough for my family to have 2 hearty meals, so for lunch one of these days we […]

Lemon Russian Cream Pie. The whole idea had me at Lemon. I will refer back to my first post on Russian Cream. I am obsessed with it. And I am thinking of so many ways to use it in my baking adventures. And since I spend more time on the baking isle than anywhere else […]

This week has me super excited. My kids and I planned the menu together. It gave them something to do now that summer is in full swing. Even though they helped plan the organize the meals, I still went to the grocery store A.L.O.N.E. It’s easier that way, and I don’t seem to purchase things […]

My kids in the kitchen.

We have had some fun in the kitchen lately. I thought I’d share some of the photos from our baking adventures. It’s more fun in the kitchen when you can share in the creativity. These are my future bakers! Minus the dog of course. He is on the clean up crew. Happy Baking!
