Lately: Last Week’s Eats

September 2, 2013

Hold on tight… Apple Scrapple toast with sunbutter, coffee and a smoothie I made the day before with spinach, banana, milk and yogurt.   Yogurt, peach, granola and sunbutter. Cooked figs, toast, […]

Matt and I have done our share of crafty things. We painted the dining room in our old house (right over the wallpaper!), we turned light fixtures from bronze to black, we’ve hung shelves, spray-painted, built tables, planted gardens, and taken a stab at electrical work. [Matt gets most of the credit here!!]   But […]

Smokin’ Saturday

May 21, 2011

One Great Run, One Great Lunch

March 7, 2011

The first spring in a new house is always fun – you never know what is going to pop up where! I worked while Matt had tons of appointments this morning. I can tell the bakery to-do list is growing exponentially! [I just realized when I spelled it wrong that I say that word “Expo-den-tially” […]
