Creamy Vegetable and Gnocchi Soup Recipe

Creamy Vegetable and Gnocchi Soup Recipe

Every once in awhile I get this burning desire to try something new. Nothing super exciting like sky diving or learning to play a guitar. More like, learning how to make something new in the kitchen. I'll probably never make it to culinary school, so until that day comes (if ever), I work on learning new skills at home through cookbooks and online videos. I first tried store bought gnocchi about 2 years ago and instantly fell in love. I … [Read more...]

This sponsored post was written while participating in my partnership with Sprout and One2One Network, but as always, all opinions are my own. In my closet, there's a bucket. This bucket is full of photo albums and loose photos that I've taken over the years. There are hundreds of them! If you were to look on my external hard drive, you'd find thousands of photos I've taken. Most of these photos are ones I've personally taken since the … [Read more...]

Cherry White Chocolate Trifles with Brownies Recipe #LuckyLeafSpring

*sponsored content on behalf of Lucky Leaf After what felt like a never-ending winter, I can finally say it actually FEELS like Spring outside. We've got the windows open, the grass seems to have turned green overnight and my tulips are starting to creep out of the ground. This change in weather makes me want to go outside and have a picnic with my daughter. Since this is her last year home with me before Kindergarten, I'm taking every … [Read more...]

$500 GIVEAWAY | TotalProtect Home Warranty – The Affordable Way to Protect Appliances

tp11

It wasn't until last week that we realized how costly home ownership can be. Actually, it wasn't even as costly as it could have been but it was enough to grab our attention. A small piece of our clothes washer broke. That small piece ended up costing us almost $300 and a week without a washer to to do laundry. We were lucky that we happened to have the extra money at the time but if that had been a larger appliance like the hot water heater or … [Read more...]

Frozen Yogurt PEEPS Bunnies and Chicks for Easter #WiltonTreatTeam #Peepsonality

*This is a partnered post as part of the Wilton Sweet Treat Team of brand ambassadors. These past two weeks have been a whirlwind of doctor appointments, cold bugs and just way too much going on. Before any big holiday, the last thing I want is to be bogged down by so much stuff that it leaves us with no time for fun Easter activities. Stress = NO FUN! That's why we're taking it easy this week, at least trying to. I have even more doctor … [Read more...]

Step Into My Computer Time Machine With Me #IntelAIO

I think about my childhood a lot and even compare it to the one my children are living. My how things have changed! I remember spending a lot of time outside, even in the bitter cold months of winter. When I wasn't outside playing jump rope, hop scotch, kick the can or tag with my neighborhood friends, I'd go inside and play on my old Nintendo. But that wasn't often. Technology was not part of my every day life. In fact, I didn't even own a … [Read more...]

Baking Adventures …. Eclairs

chocolate french eclairs

When I get bored, or stressed, or upset or even lonely ... I bake. I have no super talent at baking, it's just something I like to do and it often relaxes me the same way a glass of wine does for some folks. And when I have no idea how to bake what I want to bake, I turn to my "baking bible". From the most basic to the most fancy baked goods you can imagine, there's a recipe for it in Baking Illustrated. I've never had a recipe from this book … [Read more...]
