Sweet Elle turns 13 today! She's my out of the box child. She likes to fit in just enough to not stand out, but not enough to give up her own opinions.  This is probably one of the only few character traits she and I share. It didn't surprise me in the least when she r...

I started making broccoli casserole when I was just a little girl. We saved it for just Thanksgiving and Christmas and each year my mom would pull out the same piece of paper with my Aunt Annie's handwriting on it. She didn't need the recipe to remember how to make it,...

Years ago there was a Thai restaurant we ate at pretty frequently. They served a soup very similar to this one that my husband would order each time and just swoon over how amazing it was. At the time I wasn't a huge fan of coconut so I would pass it up, but I wanted t...

Tacos are a weekly thing in our house. Whether served on hard or soft tacos, or with lettuce as a wrap or salad, tacos are a super easy, quick, and most loved dinner in our house. Another loved dinner is when I make greek food. I think quite possibly they could drink m...
