I really love to cook, so I was really excited to break out my Christmas present from Caroline (see it featured in this post). We decided that we would get together and make a day of it, which turned out to be a blast! Keep reading for some of the really yummy (and easy!) recipes we tried.
We’ve gotten a tiny break from the freezing weather, and we’ve had just plain old cold weather. Though I’m not about to retire me winter coat just yet, it does have me feeling like the end is in sight. I have major spring-fever, and what better way to pretend it’s spring than to go to a farmers market? Luckily, Rochester’s Farmers Market goes indoors during the colder months, to the old fire station downtown!
There is something about the new year that is so inspiring about a new year. A fresh start. A second chance (or third, or fourth…). Every January, I am encouraged to re-amp my ‘goals’ list and set my bar higher. I know that there are some people who have completely lost faith in the ‘New Year’s Resolution’, but I want to encourage you to stay positive. So what if your new resolution only lasts until the end of January? That’s one month where you lived as a healthier/happier/more organized/stronger/smarter you! The important thing is not to give up if you have a tiny set back, but to get up and try again.
I’ve always been the kind of person who likes to celebrate everything. I can always find an excuse to go out and do something fun! So, of course, I found a reason to drag Drew to Royal Oak (my favorite!) on one of the coldest days of the year…
I have a confession: I have a major sweet tooth. There’s no use denying it. I firmly believe that the best things in life are sweet! That being said, it’s important to practice moderation…but sometimes I just can’t help it. Especially during the winter months, I like to indulge a little more, to keep morale high.
