So we are on day two of our journey through southern Colorado. The real reason we are venturing down is because Zach has a conference in the area, but anytime I can hitch a ride with him and enjoy the great outdoors for cheap is a major win! We visited Great Sand Dunes National Park …

Happy Wednesday everyone! Is this week flying by or what? I also feel like this summer is already flying by, and it just began!. I’m not a fan of this. I mean, potentially, we could have snow here in Colorado in a month and a half. I love snow, but I think summer can stick …

I know what you are thinking. Why am I sharing a recipe inspired by ginger? Ginger is a fall ingredient. I know this. I really do, but I really think this recipe (despite the insane amount of ginger) is really great for summertime. For one thing, it’s chilled. Chilled desserts are great for summertime, and …

  Maybe it’s the cool temperatures that have me craving so many sweets lately. I can’t keep my hands off of them! Although, I should mention that it is quite beautiful here today in Colorado: 65 degrees and sunny. Just so you know, I made this over the weekend, when it was 10 degrees. I …

  Every once in a while Zach asks me to make cookies, and when he does, it’s ALWAYS chocolate chip. Peanut butter, chocolate chip…dark chocolate, chocolate chip…regular old chocolate chip…it usually doesn’t matter…as long as it’s chocolate chip.
