Monte Cristo Sliders | eat. snack. love!

Let me set the scene for you.  My husband and I decided to go out to dinner one night at a local bar we like.  They’re known for their bar food (burgers, fries, etc.) as well as my husband’s favorite: a pint of Rainer beer in a can.  Yes, you read that correctly (haha).  I…

Babymooning in Leavenworth

It scares me to even say this, but our little bundle of joy is due in eight weeks.  EIGHT WEEKS!  I’m somewhat in denial of this entire thing.  I guess I’d be in for a huge surprise should I bury my head in the sand for the next two months.  So instead, I’ve started the…

Hot Cocoa Cookies

I love the holidays.  I don’t think that’s a surprise to anyone that knows me at all.  I love all things Christmas – the trees, decorations, parties, snacks, sweets, and company.  I may sound weird, but I always love to receive handmade gifts of some kind.  I think they add to the specialty of the…

Apple-Butternut Squash Soup

Remember awhile back when I posted about buying the 40-pound box of apples from a local Lions club fundraiser?  Well, I needed to an outlet for those babies, so I was trying to find extra things to pop apples into.  Enter: the apple-butternut squash soup.  Perfect for winter and a family with a few too…

Whoa, Baby

Thanksgiving is over and it was fantastic.  With my husband and I both having families that live in the area, along with odd work schedules, we tend to run around like crazy people on an eating spree.  Honestly, I’m not sure how my regular pants held up in the last few years.  These maternity pants…
