This Nut-free Cake Pleases Everyone


I’m still recovering from the fun-loaded weekend after being on call for work, celebrating, running errands, and our Easter celebration. I need a weekend from the weekend! But it all went good and we had a huge and active Easter celebration at my sister’s house with family, friends, and way too much food. Thanks to […]

Chocolate Mousse Cake


Miko has discovered a new game called stash treats in the couch. I found quite a few cleaning over the weekend which made him very excited. The thought of heading back to Las Vegas makes me excited because I have a soft spot for the Wynn Las Vegas. I did a huge report and presentation on […]

Potluck Vanilla Chai Chia Seed Pudding


It’s still raining here and that’s okay, we still need it and have plenty of holiday cheer inside. But Miko is still not happy about the rain, he’d like more active walks and is ready to party in the evenings! I went to a work party/brunch potluck today. I know, brunch. Why brunch? An awkward […]

Holiday Spice Balls


Are you ready for Christmas? I think I am… maybe. Miko is with his new reindeer toy. Stuffing started coming out of his last toy and this little guy is heartbroken if he doesn’t have a favorite small toy to play with. So I caved and gave him one of his Christmas gifts early and […]

Hemp Nog

Simple Soft Serve


Happy Halloween! I’m typing this between running trips to the front door to hand out candy and we’re getting a lot of trick-or-treaters! Hubby did an awesome job on our jack-o-lantern. And we’ve got three pouting dogs in the backyard. Skipper has a hugely loud and booming bark that rattles us every time the doorbell […]

Cinnamon Maple Dessert Balls


It’s been a relaxing weekend so far here with a little lap cuddle time while I catch up on Breaking Bad. A huge kale salad from Whole Foods with home made smokey avocado rosemary dressing. Stepping out to see Captain Phillips. And what a great movie. I was hesitant to see it because the trailers […]

Cinnamon Raisin Protein Ice Cream


With three dogs now, dinner time is a bit of a chaotic feeding frenzy around here. The boys, Miko and Skipper, clean their bowls and head over to the other bowl to check for more. And check around the bowl for anything missed. It’s so exhausting, Skipper usually crashes for a nap after. I had […]
