First Halloween

My little bee and I are ready for Halloween. Well, I’m ready. As you can see, Adrienne is a little nervous. Or scared. Or she just hates her big puffy costume. I think she just needs to spend more time in it. Maybe I should have had her sleep in it last night. We aren’t … Continue reading

Kim and Scott’s Pretzels (giveaway)

I was sent these pretzels to review about….uh, a month ago? Maybe more? I feel a little guilty about it. You see, we ate the pretzels immediately. We also liked them. We tried the grilled cheese and cheddar jalapeno varieties. And by we I mean Meeker ate the jalapeno  pretzels because I am afraid of … Continue reading

She eats a leaf.

These were all taken last week. Our front lawn is currently covered in snow. On top of that snow are all the pretty leaves that used to be on that tree behind Adrienne. Sigh…fall is over. At least A got to munch on a few leaves before the two-weeks of my beloved season fled Colorado … Continue reading

Recipe Review

Remember Babycakes? I do. I made twenty-recipes from that book, which is, without a doubt, more recipes than I have ever made from a single cookbook in my life. However, I regularly make tons of recipes from other blogs. I’m talking 3-4 a week. So, I think I will start telling you all about the … Continue reading

Stuffed Pumpkin

I know, I know. A few weeks ago, I bashed the idea of baking your own pumpkin. The canned kind is easier, blah, blah, blah. I still feel that way. However, when you want to stuff a pumpkin…the canned kind is pretty nonfunctional. You see, last year one of my co-workers was listening to NPR, … Continue reading

The Yolk

I don’t remember the last time I had an egg. But this morning seemed like a good day for it. Mostly because last night I got hungry after dinner and I made oatmeal…I took a bite and remembered that I don’t really love oatmeal. And because this morning was a chilly one, an egg and … Continue reading

Roasted Salad

When does a salad turn into something that’s not a salad? We’re expecting snow tonight. Lots of it. And so a cold salad just wasn’t in the cards. However, I still wanted vegetables in mass quantities. So I roasted them all. Does that mean I ate a salad or a bowl of roasted vegetables with … Continue reading

Vegan Monkey Bread

Remember how I’ve told you that Meeker doesn’t really like sweets? That’s not entirely true. He likes chocolate chip cookies. He likes melty ice cream. And he likes the inside of cinnamon rolls. Oh and gooey brownies. Remember all of those brownies?! And since I don’t think I’ve ever met a sweet thing that I … Continue reading

Brisket Sandwich

When I was growing up, my family and I drove from Colorado Springs to Amarillo, TX every few months. My grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles lived there, and I always felt like that was really home. It was a seven hour drive, and we rarely stopped for food – we always packed a cooler full … Continue reading

Sweet Potato & Lentil Soup

Head over heals. In love. With all things fall. With monkey bread. (recipe coming, as soon as I get it right!)   With black nail polish. And with my crockpot. Which, in turn, made me fall head over heals in love with this soup. You guys, it’s kind of sweet. Not like monkey bread sweet … Continue reading
