Fresh Raspberry Mint Mojito

I love using fresh ingredients during the summer for my cocktails. We have an amazing fruit/plant stand just a couple miles down the road and I will go there often on the weekends to pick up fresh fruit. A couple weekends ago we were in the beginning of berry season so I came home with […]

Periodic Table BEER Stein

I love a good nerdy craft project. I will admit that Chemistry definitely wasn’t my forte in highschool and college (let’s just say that I definitely wasn’t going to become a Chemical Engineer). I’ve seen the different words spelled out with periodic table elements and decided that it would be fun to see what I […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

I absolutely LOVE Strawberry-Rhubarb; the sweetness of the strawberries complement the tartness of the rhubarb, and when baked together with some brown sugar and cinnamon, it becomes even better. Brad and I make many crisps throughout the summer, utilizing whichever fruit is in season during that time. They also take minimal work to prepare, which makes […]

Open Adoption Waiting Pool Impatience

Some days are better than others in the waiting pool. Today was one of those “other” days. Each month we get a newsletter from our agency and I have somewhat a love-hate relationship with this newsletter. I love seeing that there is movement in the pool; however, I also tend to over analyze each of […]
