HAPPY 2017!

Happy New Year friends! I hope however you celebrated you found some happiness and peace. We had a low key New Year’s Eve and a very focused New Year’s Day preparing, cleaning, and shopping for things we need as we enter the home stretch of my pregnancy. I also made a decadent treat for us to fight off the chill! Continue reading

Arizona Life: Summer is for Salads

So… given my last few posts, this should not come as a surprise… we have not been cooking as much as we were this winter/spring. AT least, not formally cooking.
