Spur of the Moment Soup

Cate Mezyk - January 28, 2016

We love to host people over to our home. There’s nothing I like more than to have a crowd of people seated around my pretty kitchen table. And often times, as we put out invites for a last minute get together, I’m thankful for my special talent of throwing ingredients together out of whatever is in my cabinet and fridge. The other night, we had …

Snickerdoodle Apple Bread

Cate Mezyk - October 29, 2015

This bread was birthed out of two things – our recent apple picking excursion, and the fact that I was delivering two meals to two families one night, and it’s always more fun to include something sweet to finish things off, right? I found a few recipes that looked tasty, and made do with what was in my pantry, putting my own spin on it. …

Pumpkin Spiced Hot (Boozy) Chocolate

Cate Mezyk - October 22, 2015

If there is one thing that stands out in the flavors of fall, it’s – pumpkin, of course! I know I’m not alone in my love of this classic. And though I’ve tried eating/drinking it during other times of year, it’s just more delicious when the weather is crisp and the leaves are turning pretty shades of red and yellow. We are headed to this …

Warm Yourself Up With Acorn Squash Soup

Cate Mezyk - October 15, 2015

The other day was one of those bone chilling, windy fall days that just demands a bowl of something warm. My kids aren’t huge fans of squash, but if you put it in soup form, they will eat it up like it’s going out of style. Add a little bacon, and it’s in their tummies in a flash. They all gave this one a big …

Best Friend Award ~Coming Right Up

Tammy Hiveley - October 8, 2015

Leaving on my mission trip next week has got me spinning. Racing to check off my work ToDo’s, prepping for the trip itself, and organizing my families’ life while I’m away tends to be all-consuming. Not a spare moment. In amongst this whirlwind, I got the sweetest text message from a friend. …As part of my support for your upcoming mission trip, I’m putting together a meal sign …

Front Porch Bacon Cheddar Soup

Tammy Hiveley - September 17, 2015

Fall is officially on it’s way. The cool crisp air, colorful landscapes, and apple orchards are just a few things I l-o-v-e about fall. Tis the season for my favorite cardigans, new denim (shown here and here), and riding boots. Hurrah! I also get to cuddle under a blanket on the front porch and watch my babies ride up and down the street with their neighbor friends. …

Black Bean and Corn Salsa

Cate Mezyk - August 25, 2015

I recently posted my traditional salsa recipe – it’s a family favorite and I hope you’ve been loving it too. We eat quite a bit of Mexican in our home, because it’s one of the only types of cuisine that all five of us enjoy. (If you have yet to try our famous carnitas recipe, get to clicking – it’s our most popular post ever …

Every time I make it for friends they ask me for the recipe. So in the interest of helping them out (because I’m just that nice 😉 …

Gluten Free, Low Sugar Carrot Cake

Cate Mezyk - July 30, 2015

My husband recently decided to join me on my quest for eating more healthfully. Let’s just say that he’s baby stepping his way in – there are still a few faves on his list that he has a hard time giving up. One of these things is carrot cake – it’s one of his favorite desserts. And with his birthday coming up, I decided to …
