4th of July Berry Trifle Recipe
Trifle is one of those dishes that always looks so complicated to make, but really isn’t. They also look very fancy. I like that combo. A dish that looks like you put a lot of work into it, but you really didn’t have to.
Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar Recipe
My husband loves those pricey store bought protein bars. He buys boxes upon boxes of them. He eats them like they are going out of style. The only problem with these are that they get kind of expensive after a while.
5 Summer Time Work Snacks
When I’m at work I’m a total snacker. All my coworkers know I have a snack drawer, and if they’re itching for something to chew on they know where to look.
Coconut Oil Pulling
Have you heard of this? Pulling with coconut oil? It seems that half of my social media friends are doing it. I have to admit that I’m a bit skeptical. I don’t understand how placing a spoonful of coconut oil in your mouth and just letting it sit there for 20-30 minutes can do everything…
My boys love sports. They play all kinds. However, we usually have a break from them in the summer and try to focus on fishing and camping. This doesn’t mean my kids still don’t want to play sports, though.
Rocky Mountain Chocolate Cake Recipe
If you got a good look in my pantry you would find anywhere from 15 to 20 cake mixes filling the shelves at one time. I love to bake cakes. All types of cakes. Any recipe that calls for a cake mix, I love to try.
Chocolate Covered Smores on a Stick Recipe
Nothing screams summer like smores. No matter what age people are, they love smores. My boys would eat them all night, every night in the summer if I would let them, but I try and reserve them for special occasions like camping trips and bon fires.
My 5 Favorite Barbecued Foods
I’m always ready to put the barbecue away come late fall. Eating everything barbecued every day gets a little tiring. However, once Spring rolls around and I’ve been deprived of barbecue for a few months, I get ravenous for it. I just can’t get enough of it right now.
Summertime Cucumber Onion Salad Recipe
I absolutely love fresh vegetables in the summer. This recipe takes two crisp vegetables and mixes them together with the zest of vinegar. This recipe tastes good and is good for you.
I’m lucky enough to still have one grandparent left. My grandmother just turned 90 this year. She is not as sharp as she used to be, but I’d be very lucky if I was as healthy as she is when I am 90.
Every Man’s Favorite Loaded Baked Potato Dip Recipe
My husband would eat steak and baked potatoes for dinner every day if I would let him. I’m fairly certain he is not alone in his thinking. I’m pretty sure every man (including my sons) feels the same way.
A Little Piece of Heaven on Earth
I truly believe we live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Not only is the scenery we enjoy here in Montana amazing, but the wildlife that live here make it spectacular. It’s hard not to feel lucky when you look around.
