  • Mug Cake Cook-Off

    Wowwie. It’s been a crazy month and a bit. Crazy. We’ve: 1) gone on an 8 day road trip with 12 people in a 12 passenger van over 3 states, 3 national parks and 2200 miles, 2) started back at school, 3) gone on our biggest camping trip to date, 4) gotten and gotten over […]

  • Chicken Lettuce Wraps Chopped Salad

    Sorry this isn’t the best photo. I will try to replace it later with something more glamorous. But as a big part of this blog is to catalog the recipes that the family has deemed favorites, I want to get this UP. To be perfectly honest, only the adult members of the family are gaga […]

  • Tabby Bakes

    This kid loves to cook. So when I suggested that as a potential summer goal, Tabby jumped all over it. Better still, she decided she would be in charge of producing the dessert for our family meeting. The first week, she tackled caramel stuffed chocolate chip cookies. I’d love to link to the recipe for […]

  • We Are the Champions

    I’ve loved Broncos football since I was a little kid and my grandparents would take my sister and me to Mile High Stadium to cheer on our Broncos. It was a cool experience for a little kid and though the games were frequently pre-season games, it didn’t matter, it was great to be with my grandparents […]

  • Soup Time

    We eat a LOT of soup. It is not unusual for us to eat soup two or three times a week, and the vast majority is home made. It’s easy and usually quick (or crock-pottable), generally healthy, a complete meal and … delicious. Some of our favorite soups: Chicken Gumbo  Lasagna Soup Lentil Soup (with […]

  • Coconut Curry Lobster Bisque

    This is a recipe I’m posting at least half for my own record keeping as anything else. I still have some lingering questions about the recipe and I don’t have great photos, but I’ll share what I’ve got and try to update the next time we make it. But man, it’s too good to lose! Backstory: […]
