Awesome Gluten Free or {Paleo} German Pancakes

In our house, Paul is a morning person who really enjoys cooking, so that usually translates into some sort of hot breakfast on the weekends (if left up to me, it’s cold breakfasts everyday.) One of our family’s most favorite breakfasts since I was a little girl has been German Pancakes, so Paul has continued to make…

2014’s Resolutions, How Did I Do?

    Hello! Are you so excited about it being 2015? I am looking forward to so much of what’s ahead, but before I get too far ahead of myself, I thought I would look back at my resolutions from last year and give myself a grade for how well I did! Since there is…

The other day I shared a post about Emmie’s small and understated 12th birthday party, and today I am back with her 11th birthday (I am so behind on posts….) Emmie decided that she wanted to have a circus theme for her party, and we tried really hard to thread the theme throughout within the…

Emmie the Chef

We are back from China! We have actually been back a couple of days, but since it still has been spring break, I haven’t been on the internet much. But as all good things must come to an end, everyone is back at school and work now, so I am trying to clean the house…

Emmie’s Cake Decorating {photo of the day}

But today happened to be my birthday! I turned 32 this year, with out too much fan fare as far as the age is concerned since I’ve…
