As a blogger I think it is important to check in with yourself sometimes - who am I, why do I write, what do I want to write about, and so on. Since it has been a while since I have done something like this, I decided to do a little 'get to know me' post so you can learn more about what inspires my blog and the type of content I want to bring to you - my readers! I hope you enjoy, and thank you so much for following along!
This Spanish Rice Recipe is one that has been passed down through my Mexican-American husband's family over the years. I hope you enjoy their version of Spanish Rice - in our kitchen, this is a staple with all our Mexican cooking!
The Rolling Huts and Methow Tents make up one fantastic "Glamp-Site" in the Methow Valley, that we have been lucky enough to stay at a few times. Since we always enjoy our stay, I decided to write about it for you.
This giant cinnamon roll is a staple of special events in my household - I bust this recipe out for birthdays and brunches galore, and it is always devoured! I am not a lover of super sweets, so the savory dough combined with the cream cheese frosting is an absolutely perfect balance. You want to pin this one for sure!
Summer 2020 is sure not a normal one, but despite it all, we are trying to enjoy this extra time together. We have been cooking/baking tons and spending lots of time playing in our yard, with the addition of a few small and hesitant trips. What does summer 2020 look like for you?
These homemade English Muffins are so fluffy, golden, and amazing! This is not a sourdough English Muffin recipe however, but that is the reason they are so quick and easy to make. Scratch baking isn't as difficult as one might think, and I think these English Muffins are proof! Plus, did you know that English Muffins aren't baked, they are actually pan fried? That was a fun fact I learned making these too. Enjoy this English Muffin recipe!
Even tiny vacations can be complicated right now, but we had great luck with a short trip to Kittitas County and hiking Franklin Falls! #pnw #hike #kittitascounty
This lemon blueberry loaf is one I make every summer. These is nothing better than picking fresh blueberries and enjoying them in a home-baked bread! This loaf is particularly easy, and you can dress it up even more by selecting a special pan. This floral one is a Nordic Ware pan I found at Williams Sonoma, but they have tons of other fun ones available on Amazon too!
This week has been heavy. Ok, this year has been heavy, and it is really weighing me down. Just an honest post to check in with you, and share my thoughts and feelings. Now more than ever, we need to check in with each other to make sure our family, friends, and neighbors are okay.
Trying new recipes is the thing to do right now, apparently! But honestly, why not? For us non-essential workers, we are no longer commuting and have hours of extra at-home time right now, even if working a full day at home. So why not take that extra time and turn it into something delicious, like this Monkey Bread recipe? I know you guys have that Costco stock of bulk yeast and flour, haha! Have fun!
Times are so hard right now, and we are all going stir crazy. I realized I have added a few little things to my routine that are offering me a little comfort and sanity, by helping to take care of my mind and body. I liked all my favorites for you to enjoy!
