This very special Peach Jam is made with peaches from our dear friend’s parent’s tree. The fruit is almost as sweet as the people who planted it. Turn your peaches into jam that is great for sharing or keeping for yourself.
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”
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. My Aunt Paula, however, was a die-hardContinue reading “Dips For The Big Game… Because You Have to Bring Your A-Game”

I have a twin. Crazy, huh, especially since we only met about 15 years ago. Okay, so we aren’t biological twins, but we don’t care. We are chosen twins, sisters of the heart, and we love it that way. We have been asked many many times when we are out and about if we areContinue reading “Applesauce with my Twin”
This pasta sauce will have you coming back for seconds and thirds! A little sweet, a little tang, and a hint of cinnamon make this sauce an incredible addition to your recipe box.
Holy crap has it been a long time since I published! I have very much missed writing and sharing with you, but for the past 3 months I just couldn’t do it. No reason to panic, I’m all good. It’s totally okay. I spent the better part of the last 3 months ready to barfContinue reading “Ya Gotta Have a Plan”
When the phone rang yesterday morning I never expected to hear those words coming from the quivering voice of my friend on the other end of the line. I am not really sure I heard anything else she said after the word. It’s scary and confusing, overwhelming and sad. The unknowns, that is the scariestContinue reading “Heartbreak Called”
If ever there was a woman worthy of sainthood, it was my Great Grandma Rose. At least she deserved this title in my mind. Grandma Rose was my dad’s mom’s mother. She was born in 1895 and passed away in 1991 at the age of 96! I can only pray God blesses me with healthContinue reading “Grandma Rose”
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!”
