Another birthday in the books

So yesterday I turned 37! I always thought that by this point in my life I would have it all figured out. Career, family, hobbies etc… But nope! Apparently 37 is the year that you realize that no-one ever really figures it out. Life goes on with or without you. So my best 37 year…

Intermission Recipe

I’ve been getting antsy about when we’re getting together to cook our next Betty’s BFF’s meal, and so decided to try out a side dish recipe of sweet and sour coleslaw from the Betty Crocker Red Book. I’ve been staring at the recipes in this book for weeks and I’m genuinely excited to try all…

Meal #2, and Oh My Word… The CAKE!

Ok, recap…the BFF (Amber) and I are baking our way through a Betty Crocker cookbook.

We gathered all of our…
