A chef….  I am not.  On rare occasion, I forget that I’m not and try my best.  Thankfully, I have great sous chefs!

Homemade Latte Recipe & Coffee Giveaway

**This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to Steve Weber, who was randomly selected as the winner of two free bags of delicious coffee!** In a sad realization that I could fund a child’s college tuition with what I was spending at coffee shops, I decided it was time to make a small change. And by small, perhaps I should say a Venti change? {Eh? Eh? See what I did there?} I now make my own homemade lattes and they are easy, yummy, & doable. See for yourself! Why I Make My Own Cost. Gone are the days of swinging through the drive-through and dropping...

Make Something Monday:: Grandma’s Homemade Noodles

Homemade noodles always seem like a daunting task. A time consuming, “only for grandmas, but not for young moms,” overwhelming, daunting task. Then, I remembered that I’m not actually as young as I think I am. And also, they aren’t as scary as they seem… And get easier (and more comfortable) with each attempt. What you need: 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk dash of salt 2 Tbsp milk or cream 2 cups flour What you do: Beat eggs, milk/ cream, and salt together Stir egg mixture in with flour Put mixture on floured board, working in additional flour until stiff...

Make Something Monday:: EASY Sugar Cookies

I always read recipes that claim “easy” and then look through their 89 ingredients and 401 steps before humming the “Liar, liar, pants on fire” tune in my brain. In scouring for cookies that my littles could help with, I found a gift from Pinterest! These Sugar Cookies from Inspired Dreamer. They really are simple, they really do have a limited amount of ingredients as far as baking goes, (Full disclosure: Cream of Tarter is included, and I did have to purchase that), and they DO involve sprinkles. Which is an absolute bonus for your tiniest bakers. Enjoy!!

A Must-Add-Martini to your drink collection!

For the first time since our honeymoon, hubby and I snuck away for a long weekend in Seattle last summer. I’m still holding onto the memories of that amazing weekend, full of adult drinks, leisurely adult talks, adult drinks, uninterrupted sleeps that didn’t involve tiny humans in our bed, adult drinks, and ADULT DRINKS.  Oh, and I almost forgot to mention. Seattle offered some amazing adult drinks.  At one of the many restaurants at Pike Place Market, I saw The Last Irresistible on the drink menu and thought I would give it a try. A few (plus/ minus 10) drinks later, and we...
