The spring rains come frequently followed by small glimpses of summer sunlight leaving the ground nourished and full of life! It is such a beautiful sight to see green grass and bright flowers popping up everywhere around our farm! April showers (also) bring… MUSHROOMS!
I immediately told Dan that he had to try it and that I felt determined to recreate it at home. So today, I am sharing my “Copy Cat” version of Brew Co.’s “Apple Chicken Roulade.” My favorite part of this dish is the flavor of the apples and the goat cheese together! There are so many different flavors in this recipe but they come together perfectly, each flavor complimenting the next. Bursts of happiness in my mouth! When I made this at home, Dan said “I don’t even know what is in my mouth right now… but it is amazing!” Continue reading
The baby shower at work on Thursday went so well! We totally surprised the mother-to-be! Here a few pictures from the shower. As I mentioned in my last post, we decorated for the baby shower with owls to match the theme of the new baby’s nursery. We did our best to transform the conference room… … Continue reading
This Lent I chose to give up sweets and pop as part of my fasting for the forty days and forty nights. This was a serious challenge for me…I have a persistent sweet tooth (this is a hereditary condition passed along from my father)! Though in the grand scheme of things this is a very small sacrifice, it … Continue reading

We went to see our good friends on Friday night for the housewarming I told you about. And on Saturday, Dan and I worked all day at a local bull sale with some family … Continue reading
Check out this breakfast gift basket complete with blueberry pancakes, syrup and mimosas! This gift basket was super easy and I love the way it turned out! When it comes to gift-giving, I love putting together gift baskets. They are attractive, thoughtful and often times give the recipient a reason to relax and unwind!
The rain has made today kind of a lazy day. And what is a lazy day without some good, cozy food! I whipped up a super-easy breakfast braid this morning. It was so ooey, gooey and delicious… finger-lickin’ good!
As things begin to thaw out around here I can’t help but be ready for spring! I have already begun some new projects around the house since I have been stuck inside anyway. Spring cleaning is already in full swing along with a complete list of home improvements for 2013. This weekend Dan and I continued to paint away … Continue reading
