A cheese board is my thing to make when we’re hosting, or one of the first things I offer to bring to gatherings. I love the creativity that goes into it and the fact that everyone is happy to see you when they notice you have a board full of cheese, meat and other snacks […]

One-Pot Broccoli & Parmesan Farro

Monster Marshmallow Treats

The time is near to start booing our friends!! We’re looking forward to dropping treats off at their doors and ringing the doorbell. Last year, Peyton got quite sad when we would drop off the treats and not say hi, so this year, I’m prepared to tell her that we’re kind of acting like ghosts […]

Spooky S’more Spider Webs

Anyone else have their Halloween decorations up already? My daughter and I had a blast putting them up together, but man, those fake spider webs just cling to everything!
