Hello! It’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these posts. We’ve been busy with then end of school and then busy with all things summer. Here are some of the highlights of things we’ve eaten these last two months. This has been a season of quick meals hardly worth mentioning and celebratory gatherings (thanks,… Read more »
It’s about time I did another meal round-up. Here are some of the things we’ve eaten recently.
This week we’ve got the whole gamut: traditional Easter dinner complete with ham, veggie burgers, epic s’mores, and a vegan dinner.
I am so excited that it’s getting warm enough to camp again! Below are the meals we ate for our most recent backpacking trip – a three day, two night affair in Canyonlands.
We start the next dish details round-up with a meal you’ve already seen here before. (Full disclosure, I am eating a microwaved chimichanga from the freezer section while I type this. Not all our meals are well-rounded or glamorous.)
Back in February of 2020, we went on a spectacular trip to Costa Rica. I’ve thought about that trip a lot over the last year. We’d initially thought about going over our kids’ spring break in late March, but the cheapskates in us decided to just take the kids out of school and go when… Read more »
It was a celebration week at our house, which meant a greater than normal amount of desserts, so get excited!
Another week has flown by. Here are some highlights from what we ate this last week. This was one of those weeks where we ditched our plans more than once for takeout or warming something up from the freezer. Some weeks are like that, but even with the upsets we still made some good things…. Read more »
We have a couple of wild animals living in our house. They leave sticky paw prints, apple cores, and torn wrappers in their wake. They scale the side of the fridge in search of nourishment and are often found cowering in corners hunched over piles of crumbs. Despite the overpowering ravenous hunger these poor creatures… Read more »
High Altitude Rich Pound Cake
When we first moved to Colorado I felt like I had to learn how to bake all over again. Even though I’ve lived at high altitude all my life, everything I baked came out maddeningly flatter than usual. I’d also recently joined the club of stay-at-home-motherhood, and with a tiny babe, no friends, and little… Read more »
In case you couldn’t tell, that recipe we put out this morning for single serve red velvet snickerdoodle brownies was a fun little satire for April Fools’ Day. We tend to be simple folk. Mixing multiple desserts or using cake mixes isn’t really our style, even when it’s terribly popular. In case it isn’t obvious, we’ve… Read more »
Single Serve Red Velvet Snickerdoodle Brownie in a Mug
Ohmygoodness, you guys. I generally turn my nose up at mug cakes as they just can’t compare to the real thing, but I make an exception for this. Side note: I’m pretty sure I’m the original mug cake creator. I totally tried to make a single serve cake in the microwave one time when I… Read more »
Well-Balanced Camping Meal Plan
Last week was our son’s spring break and the desert was calling our names. Both Noel and I have a special place in our heart for red rock country having spent many formative years and moments in Nevada, Arizona, and Utah and I think we were a little homesick for red dirt. We spent a… Read more »
Mini Raspberry Cream Pies
I can be a little prideful about my cooking, which sometimes leads me to be competitive when there isn’t really even a competition. To kick off Spring Break, our son’s preschool had a teacher appreciation lunch provided by the parents. I was quick to sign-up this time since last time I was late in the… Read more »
Eating Green on St. Patrick’s Day Without Food Dyes
As you may have gleaned from my red velvet cake post, we’re not too keen on food dyes. This can make life difficult when faced with the moral dilemma of how to celebrate things like St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, or really any holiday ever. Still, we try not to be complete party poopers, especially since… Read more »
Raspberry Cream Pie
Happy pi(e) day! Don’t worry, if you missed digging into a great slice of pie this morning, you can still have an epic pi(e) day celebration when 9:26pm rolls around. That gives you plenty of time to bake and properly chill this pie.
An Epic Pi Day
There are a ton of food “holidays” and we’re a bit choosy about the ones we feel deserve celebration. Pi(e) day is one of the celebrations that make the cut. Pies? Math? I mean, no-brainer. (If you haven’t picked up on it already, especially in Noel’s posts, we have a bit of a nerdy side… Read more »
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake Review and Some Thoughts
Noel and I have been doing a lot of thinking about this space and what we want it to be (and clearly not a lot of writing about it). As I was making a birthday cake for my little girl this last week something struck me. One of my favorite websites for cakes is Annie’s… Read more »
