Two years ago, Maddie arrived as the newest and sweetest addition to our family. This year, we made another addition. A brand-new charcoal grill. While not as sweet as Maddie, it is rather adorable and promises to make some pretty sweet summer food. If I can master the art of grilling, that is. (more…)
As moms, we know that dinner sometimes needs to be quick. Between work and activities with the kids, we don’t have enough hours in the day to make an involved meal every single night.

When I reached for my supply, however, I was shocked to see that it had expired in 2013. I suppose those cravings are a little farther between than I thought. (more…)
