Triple Berry Jelly

Technically it’s jam, but we just call it jelly. We call jam, jelly, and preserves jelly around here- don’t judge. It’s freaking delicious and that’s all I care about. I’ve had the thought of triple berry in my head for a couple weeks, got a couple bags of frozen berries, and today I had someContinue reading “Triple Berry Jelly”

Dips For The Big Game… Because You Have to Bring Your A-Game

I love to watch football as long as it’s a good game. Who is playing is not as important to me as watching a good game. If asked, I would say I’m a Bears fan, but it’s been hard to be a Bear’s fan for many years now.

Bring on the Fall Weather!

If there is one thing this Midwestern girl loves, it’s fall weather. Fall is my favorite season! The smells, the colors, the tastes, the weather. PSL Opening Day is a big deal for me (that’s Pumpkin Spiced Latte) and serves as permission from our Lord Himself to shift all thing to FALL!!! Our house stopsContinue reading “Bring on the Fall Weather!”

Old Friends Become New Friends
