Let’s talk about cake. Let’s talk about how I completely screwed this cake up yesterday. Now, let’s talk about how the struggle was totally worth it in the end. I may have mentioned before that I am not a huge cake baker. Cupcakes I can do, but when it comes to actually cake cakes, I’m …

Here’s the thing…I really wanted to start this week as “ice pop” week. The problem is that no store in my area carries ice pop molds in the middle of February. Actually, I take that back. One store had them, but they were the cheapo brand and I could just have seen it breaking the …

So I’m trying to get Zach into eating eggs. He’s never been much of an egg eater. He says they make him sick, but I’ve seen him eat eggs a couple of times now and he has NOT gotten sick. I think the IDEA of an egg makes him sick, but I will try not …

So I lied before. I thought I was getting better from what I think was still the flu, but I was completely wrong. I have spent the last two days pretty much bed ridden, but I can honestly say that I think I am FINALLY getting better. No where near 100%, but I can at …

Well it’s the weekend, and we were craving something super sweet and breakfast(y). We haven’t done a true breakfast in a while, so what the heck. We combined all of our favorite ingredients into one scrumptious pancake. These buttermilk pancakes are stuffed with bananas, walnuts and dark chocolate chips, and it’s everything you could imagine …

We’re going to do something a little bit different today. I just started running again. I’ve been having some leg issues here as of late and needed a break from the whole thing, but I take it that most of you don’t care. So let’s get to the point. There’s nothing in this world that’s …
