Alarms in the Night

At about 4:30 this morning Luke and I were hurtling from our beds, adrenaline already flowing through our bodies. Bodies that had been in deep, deep sleep just seconds before. Without saying a word to each other we split at our doorway each heading for a separate little girl. Both of us...

Lemon Ricotta Blueberry Pancakes

We have blueberries coming out of our ears it seems. Not literally out of our ears, but there are tons of blueberries in the store for fantastic prices and I have a weakness for delicious produce at good prices. So I’ve bought some blueberries. Or rather a lot of blueberries. We eat them...

Chicken and Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups

I’m about to lay some truth out for you. Cooking just isn’t as fun any more. Wait, let me back up. Cooking is fun. I love cooking. A five-year-old, a seven-month-old, a tight night time schedule with a small window between school pick-up and bedtime, homework and all the things,...

Salted Dark Chocolate and Caramel Shortbread Cookies

H is for Halloween

Gratitude Filled Thanksgiving Leaf Garland

Now that Madeline is in school it is so much harder to craft together. Her school days are just so long and then there’s cheerleading and ballet, dinner and homework, reading and baths and the nights just disappear. I’ve...
