Arches National Park #PSF

Arches National Park

  I am finally home for good from my summer of traveling. I miss it. I miss being on the road and having daily adventures. I miss the chance to be with my kids – no distractions (because, let’s face it…most of the remote locations we visited did not have great cell phone coverage, and […]

Necco and Kim

  I am a member of the Invisalign Mom Advisory Board and my daughter, Necco, is currently receiving her treatment for free.

Crispy Treat Ice Cream Sandwiches

Crispy Treat Ice Cream Sandwiches

  This recipe for crispy treat ice cream sandwiches (perfect for summer evenings!) is sponsored by Target, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. Last month, I shared a recipe for 15-minute grilled kabobs and mentioned that grilled foods were made for summer—and summer was made for grilled foods. But what about after-dinner desserts? […]

Skillet Apple Crisp #CreativeHOP

Skillet Apple Crisp

  ‘Tis the season for apples and apple recipes! Apples were always my favorite fruit, but I’ve been allergic to them for the last 16 years or so (it’s a long story…something called oral allergy syndrome). Since I can’t eat many of the fresh fall fruits that I used to love, and since I can […]
