Please excuse this absence...

My dear friends, 

My apologies for the lack of new posts recently. My brother and SIL have welcomed a precious little bundle of joy into their family a bit earlier than expected. And so while my sweet little niece grows under the care of nurses and her parents, my mom and I are hanging out with her two older (and I should also mention super cute) brothers. 

New posts will be on their way once we arrive back in PA. Until then scroll the archives for some inspiration :) 

With love from chilly, but beautiful Montana!

stuffed blueberry french toast

Only a week until Valentine's Day and I'm once again wearing my problem solving hat. First, I helped you skip the crowded card aisles with a printable Valentine’s day card. Now I’m bringing you this incredibly simple, yet indulgent stuffed blueberry french toast with blueberry orange sauce. It's the perfect way to show some love to your valentine! I've been quite the proactive problem solver lately. Where’s my gold star sticker? ;)

Make the french toast the night before and pop it in the oven Friday morning for a Valentine’s day breakfast. Or make it as the pièce de résistance for a lazy Saturday brunch. Cut the recipe in half if it's just your sweetheart and you, or make the whole recipe and feed a big family of valentines. 

This french toast traditionally makes its appearance Christmas morning in our family, but it deserves a permanent spot on your breakfast recipe rotation. Why? 1) Prep happens the night before. 2) It's easy, easy, easy. 3) It's seriously delicious: blueberries, bread, and eggy wonderfulness. That description along should have you dashing around the kitchen pulling out ingredients and your casserole pan. Without further ado...

ice ice baby

Monday: an abundance of snow.
Today: an extreme ice storm.
It's stunningly beautiful in a kind of way...
I think that about describes it.
Stay warm and safe, friends!

a Narnia snow

In case this weekend's weather fooled you, winter is still alive and well. Here's the proof:
Clearly, the only logical response to all this snow is snow ice cream! [Followed up with some hot chocolate, of course.]
Make it. You won't regret it. I promise.
