3 Amazing Caramel Recipes For The Holidays


I recently received an email announcing new Werther’s Original Baking Caramels, and asking if I’d be interested in hosting a Mommy Party. Initially I hesitated. We just moved to Indiana and I don’t have too many friends here. But, then I thought what a great way to get to know the parents of Zadey’s new […]

Sweet Cinnamon Nutmeg Butternut Squash

Sweet Cinnamon Nutmeg Butternut Squash

I love fall. There’s something in the air that makes fall magical, and if there’s anything that will inspire me to cook. It’s going to be fall and the cooler temperatures. My first time preparing fresh butternut squash was not that long ago. In fact, I made it for the boys to eat from a […]

Homemade Applesauce & Apple Juice

Homemade Applesauce

Okay, it’s like I can hear you already… “Katy, who needs a recipe to make applesauce, it’s so easy even you are making it.” And yeah, I know. Peel apples, cut them, put them in slow cooker with water. Season to taste. Except, I would have said the same thing… then I made a boo-boo, […]

Wordless Wednesday: Horseback Riding

Wordless Wednesday with Linky

Last month we took the family to Airport Appreciation Days, where there was a wide variety of activities for Zadey to do. The very first thing she was interested in was riding horses and she jumped on with a great deal of enthusiasm. Knowing Zadey’s love for horses, I thought it might be a fun […]

Wordless Wednesday: Wrigley Field

Wordless Wednesday with Linky

We have never been to Chicago, but after a month of waiting, just living 3 hours away from Chicago, we finally took a small trip. We went for pizza, really. But Joanne has been a lifelong Cubs fan, and we couldn’t go to Chicago without seeing Wrigley Field. Joanne stood at the sign, and cried, […]

Wordless Wednesday: Angry Babies

Wordless Wednesday with Linky

Last weekend we went outside to watch the burn pile, burn! We put the boys in the stroller and hung out for a bit in the yard. I think they may have grown tired of just hanging out. Though we had lots of smiles and giggles with them, at one point we also got the […]

Wordless Wednesday: Goodnight, Oliver

Wordless Wednesday with Linky

Oliver always sits in the middle seat, in my car, and sister always sits next to him. Typically she will unbuckle him whenever we arrive someplace and this night, getting home, was no different. Except that once he had been unbuckled (which woke him up), he rolled over and went right back to sleep. No, […]
