Summer is suppose to be lazy mornings, relaxing by the pool, and lazy evenings… but apparently my calendar missed that memo! My summer seems to be flying by in crazy days of running around. Most days, if I don’t take my breakfast in a cup, I don’t get it. And a cup of coffee really isn’t an appropriate breakfast.
Last weekend we went camping, I was getting ready to make a loaf of bread to take with us for our lunches and decided I wanted something with a little more tooth to it.

Now I do like to cook, but sometimes I like to… View Post

Last week I came across a recipe for Lemon Creme Puffs and just knew I had to try them. Do you do that? See a recipe and run out to make it ASAP! I do. And this was one of those recipes that just spoke to me. Why? Because I love lemon, the creme puff recipe seemed so simple (I had… View Post
My daughter is a diva! She is the sweetest, most darling diva, but definitely a diva. And she is all girl. She loves dresses, “girl colors” as she calls anything not blue or green, and flowers. I love having a little girl to finally be able to make fun girly things for.
