Or if you need some sweet […]

Caramelized Sriracha Pumpkin Seeds

Let’s talk pumpkin. It’s not what you are thinking. Not breads or muffins. Pies or pasta (or even mac and cheese). Although there is plenty of that going around. Have I mentioned that before? Because I feel like I have. I’m talking about pumpkin seeds. Sweet. Salty. Carmel-y. Crunchy. Spicy, with the heat of Sriracha. In this house, we love […]

Hubs showed me a comic the other day and it made me giggle. And sigh a little, in saddness. And then, I accepted it as truth, embraced it, and moved on. This time of the year I devour, breath in, and enjoy everything pumpkin-flavored and pumpkin-scented. And that comic, well, it depicted a woman who suffers from […]

One that we participate in on a daily basis. It goes a little something like this. Me: “Ugh, I can’t decide what to have […]

There are some things in life that are necessities. Clean water for example. A warm house. An oven that actually bakes. Also chocolate, coffee, running shoes and banana bread. Yes, banana bread. It’s one of my all time favorite breakfasts, afternoon snacks, and late night comfort foods. I’ve stuffed my face with many, many different kinds of […]

Dear Kiddo, Well, now you’ve done it. You’ve gone and grown up so much that you had to start school. Real school. Not preschool, but 4-year old kindergarden. Yes, you could argue that even this isn’t actually real school, it’s only half days after all, but we are fortunate enough to live in a school […]

Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookie Bar Recipe

I know, I know, I left. Without warning. Without explanation. Without a sweet recipe to remember me by. Here’s the thing, I hate the fact that I’m even writing a “where have I been” post. I swore that when I started this blog over three years ago that I would never just disappear. Poof. And if I […]
