Two Years


2 years ago today I lost one of my biggest cheerleaders. Some days it is still so very fresh. I miss him. He was more patient than any person I know or will ever know. He encouraged whatever idea you had or dream you wanted follow. He was kind and giving and forgiving. He loved. […]

Be Content

Did you ever have something that you really didn’t want to do but were “forced” to do it because you were told it would make you a better person? Something that in the long run you would be happy that you did and look back at it with fondness and not regret? I am not […]

Creamy, Dreamy Chocolate Malt Cupcakes

A creamy dreamy chocolate malt with a cherry on top = a dessert dream. I love the flavor of malt. It is one of those flavors that are so hard to explain what it tastes like, but you just know that it tastes good. Soo….for Valentines Day, your next party or your next Tuesday night, […]

Skillet Pizza


Frozen. That is what I am at this very minute. I do love Minnesota, the seasons changing, the northern lakes, that cool crisp falls…but seriously 20 below? I do not like that. In the slightest.

Pizza doesn’t really work well with wanting to be in a bridesmaid dress in a couple months but man, it is delicious. So how about a Pull-Apart Pizza Bread? All the deliciousness of pizza in a new way. This would be a […]

It has been a little stressful the last week or so and on top of it all I have to have a dental procedure today. Here we go…Lil Miss Anxiety. So today I thought I would just share some pictures of extreme cute. Pictures to just make you smile on this Thursday. First off some […]

Warm Up with Mom’s Chili


The temperature in Minnesota is taking a nose dive. The coldest air of the season so far is heading our way…along with a couple of inches of snow this week. The bitter cold is not my friend. Walking into work is like taking an Arctic expedition and my eye makeup is non-existent once I get inside. And […]

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

The more I look at trying to keep healthy snacks around my house, as opposed to the ones that you know, taste delicious. Well, fruit is a good snack, but sometimes it just needs a little oomph. I found the oomph. And I tell ya, the oomph is deelish times 100. Peanut butter with apples […]
