Orange Peppers

To go with those tasty Cast Iron Breadsticks, I made Stuffed Orange Peppers. Oddly enough, this was a first. It was even a first for using frozen spinach. I think this stuff will come in handy for a few things later on! I love stuffed peppers. For some reason, they never come to mind when I […]

Cast Iron Breadstick

I had another great evening of cooking some firsts! They turned out great. Brent and I have some good friends moving away in about a week, so we had them over for probably one last meal. Although I will still see them several times in the next few days, they need to pack. Getting out […]

After helping out with the Stamping Out Hunger food drive we decided to head up to the ‘M’ trail for a little hike. We took the midway cutoff, which provides some different scenery than the normal. It was a beautiful clear day which provided a great opportunity for some photos.

Sun and Shadows

The other night two friends and I went on a photography excursion downtown. The evening turned into a hunt for this lime green door. None of us knew if the “green door” was even downtown, but we searched. I don’t know where the green door is as we never found it. Here are some photos […]

Jumbo Shells

I still have leftover shells from the stuffed jumbo shells I made a little while back. I decided to make these Mexican Stuffed Shells. It pretty much is a taco inside a shell but without all the good veggies. Good thing for tasty salsa! Ingredients: 14 jumbo pasta shells 1 pound ground beef 1 taco […]

After a busy day of lots of physical activity, we decided not to stop and took a little jaunt up the “M” on Saturday evening. It was gorgeous and warm out which made for a beautiful hike. I took myself out for a 10 mile run to start off my day. Had a wonderful breakfast […]

Luckily I have an amazing husband to loves to help the wife out especially when she commits […]
