Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was excited when I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest for flourless chocolate chip cookies.

Our Favorite Snickerdoodles

Our Favorite Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are my all-time favorite cookies. My husband’s chocolate chip cookies are a very close second, but when he makes snickerdoodles, I fall in love with him all over again. We had a hankering for some cookies a while back, so I skimmed Pinterest for some snickerdoodle recipes. I found this one and made a [...]

How did you decide what theme or style you wanted for the room? I wanted a classic girly type feel to the room, but I also wanted it to be elegant and not to overdone and crowded. My original plan was to keep it simple and base the “theme” around colors. I wanted whites and [...]

Easy Homemade Hummus

Easy Homemade Hummus

Does anyone else have a toddler who would subsist solely on Cheerios and bananas given the chance? Not the most nutritious diet, is it? I know my little girl gets some potassium and vitamins from those foods, but they’re practically devoid of some of the most important things a growing baby needs — protein, fiber [...]

Slow Cooker Korean Beef Sliders with Cucumber Slaw

I stumbled upon this beef short ribs recipe for a slow cooker through Pinterest and it simply sounded amazing. Even though beef short ribs are kind of expensive for us, my husband was excited to try them so I made them for the three of us at home about a month ago. They were so delicious. [...]
