    So, I have a small confession to make.  I’ve spent the last couple of weeks catching up on Pretty Little Liars.

    “Catching Up” = watching it from the beginning because I can’t remember where I left off.

    I’ve watched 32 episodes of PLL in 13 days.

    This does not make me proud.

    I’m kind o…

    It’s that time of year in Kansas City.  Winter is slipping away, and spring is just.  about.  here.  Suddenly 45 degrees feels balmy, and we are looking for any reason we can think of to get out of the house.  Fortunately for us, KC is full, and I mean full, of fantastic restaurants and f…

    I have to say that I had very low expectations for this recipe.  It just didn’t really appeal to me at all for some reason.  It wasn’t until my brother requested these for this birthday dessert that I finally broke down and made them.

    They are actually quite delicious.  The chocolate chip co…

    The list of things I’ve heard approximately nine billion times today includes:  ”I’m bored.  I’m hungry.  Can we have hot chocolate now?  Can we go outside yet?  Where’s Daddy? Can we put our princess stickers on our wall yet?  Can I go to Jordan’s house tomorrow? Can I have a treat?  Will…

    I’m pretty sure I told you in a recent post that we’ve cleaned up our eating habits in our household since the beginning of the year.  Nothing crazy, but just a renewed focus on eating healthy, real food and avoiding processed, chemical-ly food.  We don’t do diets, because we’ve learned over t…

    This is my second attempt at pink velvet cupcakes.  The first was bad, so very bad.  I don’t understand, because that particular recipe gets rave reviews everywhere, but to me it tasted like a blueberry muffin, sans blueberries.  It was just kind of blah.  They were like little, pink, blueberr…

    SERIOUSLY, what is with the ridiculous winter this year?  If I hear the term “Polar Vortex”  one more time, I just might lose it.
    Listen, I get that I live in the Midwest, and normally I am all about the changing seasons, but this winter has been particularly brutal and un-lovely. If it’s going…

    Who’s ready for dessert?  Let me just tell you that I haven’t had dessert (outside of taste-testing Iced Oatmeal Cookies and Chocolate Syrup Bundt Cake) since Christmas.  Like many of you I’m sure, we go on a bit of a detox at the first of the year to get off the holiday stuff-your-face-with-all…

    Have you ever witnessed something really, really mean?  Like, something that you can’t even believe that you just witnessed?  I overheard a conversation the other day that just left me flabbergasted.  Obviously I wasn’t meant to overhear the conversation because they were mostly whispering, but…

    As I’m sure is the case with many of you, January always brings a renewed focus on health and fitness in our household.  The gluttony of November and December is long-gone, and the reality of dusty treadmills and suddenly snug pants starts to sink in.

    So, we happily dig out our favorite health…
