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:: Lemon Crumb Muffins

Our house has recently gone through a muffin testing phase where we’ve been cooking all of the muffin recipes we could get our hands on, in order to create a list of “go to’s.” This one was voted 5/5 from my little family and has most definitely been added to the make again list!!

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...

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...


Make Something Monday:: Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli

One of my favorite foodie bloggers is Chungah, over at Damn Delicious. I ran across her site a few years ago and have been powering my way through her recipe drawer, one “Quick & Easy” page at a time. Not only do I respect her ability to use a curse word in her blog title, but I appreciate her ability to make recipes that are DOABLE and MANAGEABLE for the common mom. And if I could think of any phrase to describe me, it would, in fact be: “Common mom.” This common mom tested the Beef & Broccoli recipe last year....


The #SAHMInternship officially begins today!

Here we are folks. Day one of 365. My #SAHMInternship kicks off today! The little ducklings are off to their own adventure. #1 is confidently off to conquer 2nd grade, #2 is apprehensively anticipating friendships in preschool, and #3, well, she’s now my full time sidekick and gets to be treated like an only child a few hours out of every day.

Check me out on day one: Showered, wearing jewelry,...
