For the Fourth of July (I know I’m a little late), Evie and I decided to make a very Patriotic cake. Red, White and Blue, flags, the whole bit. It turned out so awesome, there’s even a surprise inside! Evie was SO SO good about […]

What’s Growing On?!- Tomatoes

For a few years now, Evie and I have been growing tomatoes. Last year we had a late start and ended up with A LOT of green tomatoes in October right before the first real freeze. Not this time! We made sure to grab our […]

Your Favorite Cookie….

What is your favorite cookie? I think one of the staples of cookie “stardom” is definitely a Snickerdoodle. Chewy, sugary, cinnamony(can this be a word?) goodness! It happens to be one of our favorites around here! They’re also quite easy to make. Plus, very toddler […]
