  Guess who’s starting to workout today? That’s right…yours truly. I’ve always liked to stay active, I even jump on the treadmill a couple times a week. However, for some reason every single autumn I gain a ridiculous amount of weight. You know how most people have their weight fluctuate between 5 or maybe 10...

Pumpkin Picking 2012

Over the fields and through the woods to pumpkin pick we go! YES! As you guys know, I love pumpkin picking but wasn’t able to go last year. It totally bummed me out, so this year I made it a point to fit a trip to the pumpkin patch into my schedule. There was no...

What Did Pirates Eat?

What Did Pirates Eat?

Ahoy! Today is Talk Like a Pirate Day; a random “holiday” where people are encouraged to channel their inner swashbuckler, break out their parrots and peg legs, and talk like a plunderer of the sea. Kind of fun, right? So to get into the holiday cheer, I thought to myself – what exactly did pirates...

How To Grow Thyme

How To Grow Thyme

We really didn’t use fresh thyme growing up. In fact, we almost exclusively used the dried variety…and to be honest, not that often.

How To Grow Basil

How To Grow Basil

Basil is one of my favorite flavors. It’s sweet, peppery, bold, and nothing else is quite like it. It’s one of the most popular home grown herbs due to its ability to be added to either sweet or savory comfort foods and because it’s SO simple to grow. Although I’ve grown it for years, this...
