In the interest of being transparent and real, brace yourselves: most of the time I’m making this up as I go along. For example, tonight we are having a potluck dinner themed “food from a book or movie”. I picked spaghetti and meatballs from Lady and The Tramp thinking that would be a super easy

September is almost over, how did that happen? I’m am trying so very hard to keep the pace of life chill this fall. There has been a sermon series running all month which reminded me of things I already knew but called me out on complacency. Slow down, be present where you are, and rest.
This recipe is as easy as they come, right up there with my Hawaiian three ingredient pulled pork. A quick go to when you have a crew in the house, want to send the kids off to school with a solid breakfast, or, are are craving something healthier than bacon and eggs for breakfast. Easiest
The past weekend was a perfect storm of sorts. We had a solid weekend of rain, going outside meant cold, damp, slushy weather. Staying inside meant warm and cozy. Second to that, it had been far too long since I had had one of my slow cooking marathons where I prepare a week’s worth of

Ah September. Welcome back. I love the slower, easier pace that comes with summer. The days are longer, the clock seems to slow down and everyone just seems to be able to relax. Once my kids got to the point where they could be on their own during the day, or even better, get a
Full disclosure: I have already made yogurt in my slow cooker with mediocre success. Mediocre because the recipe turned out just fine but my family refused to eat something grown on the counter overnight. I can’t say that I blame them. So here is the deal with me and yogurt. I love yogurt, I really,
