Grilled Margherita Sandwich

Whew! Finally time to sit down with a cup of tea, relax and do some blogging. This is my second attempt at this; my first attempt was a false alarm as I was about to sit down and remembered the clothes in the washer needing to go in the dryer…after the laundry in the dryer was taken out and folded, oye! It’s been a busy Saturday, but a fun filled one spent as a family. With grocery shopping, practice for Hailey at the archery range, a trip to the movies, cooking and cleaning, I was happy to have a simple and quick recipe to try during our free time at lunch!

Our Sand Ceremony

I love the idea of sharing ideas from our wedding and capturing little stories from the day at the same time. Still haven’t figured out why it took me so long to begin blogging! If you’re currently engaged, I hope it helps to spark ideas for your own big day, and for everyone, I hope you can appreciate and relate to the story behind each one shared. For our wedding, we (and by we I mean I, because my typical groom said ‘whatever you want honey’ 🙂 ) chose to do a sand ceremony to unite the three of us together as an official family.

Chicken Noodle Soup with Homemade Noodles

Welcome to my first ‘2 in 1’ post! I’ll be sharing two recipes in this one post…homemade noodles and chicken noodle soup. So this past weekend, it was cold and snowy and we had a little girl in the house with the sniffles. I decided a comforting chicken noodle soup was the perfect meal for dinner! I was going to take the easier route and make it with store bought noodles (that I even picked up when shopping earlier in the day), but I couldn’t bring myself to do it! Once you’ve had soup with homemade noodles you just won’t Continue reading

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am so excited to share this recipe! First of all, who doesn’t love red velvet anything? Cake, cupcakes, cookies…it’s all delicious! I found this recipe on Pinterest and it took me a while to finally try it out; It will not take me nearly as long to make a second batch! In fact, I think I’ll make them again in a few short weeks for Valentine’s Day! Like the pink hot cocoa, these are Continue reading

Pink Hot Cocoa for Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day only 3 weeks away, I decided to start the fun holiday themed treat making today! My step daughter was very excited at the idea of making and drinking pink hot cocoa and it was the perfect start to her Saturday morning; it was practically like dessert for breakfast! If you ask me what it tastes like I will tell you rich and creamy and that you must like white chocolate to enjoy it. My step daughter’s description? She said, Continue reading

Spinach and Tomato Tortellini

As an Italian, and a fan of delicious dishes in general, I love pasta! This one in particular was so simple to make and actually surpassed my expectations on taste! It’s creamy texture and fresh ingredients make it a scrumptious meal! My husband even commented on how good it was without me having to ask…yep, added to dinner menu! Continue reading

White Bean Chicken Chili

As a follow up to my Cranberry Breakfast muffins, I made chili for the first time this afternoon! I stumbled upon a white bean chicken chili recipe a few weeks ago that sounded wonderful and finally got around to cooking it today. Who knew making a tasty and healthy chili was so easy! I think it will make a perfect meal for my husband once he gets home from hunting today even though we’re having a rare and warmer day for mid January – 40’s! This is truly like a Continue reading
