I <3 Prague

Prague, oh beautiful Prague. Where do I even start? This was probably my favorite destination of the trip, and I cannot wait to go back one day. A few highlights of why: the architecture is stunning (no surprise there really), there are hills that add some more depth to the skyline, and the food is…

Cologne – Our First German Stop

I’ve studied a lot of art history and architecture throughout my schooling. I’ve always been fascinated by architecture and design, even have a degree in interior design. One of the places that came up so often in my studies was the Cologne Cathedral, a breathtaking display of gothic architecture that took hundreds of years to…

Brussels – Waffles, Fries, Beer, & the Grand Place

Last Christmas, Google did a good time fun thing for the holidays–their Christmas “Village.” Each day, a new game or learning experience would be available. One of those days was focused on Christmas celebrations around the world, with pictures of famous decorations, lights, shopping villages, and the like. One of them was the Grand Place…

Amsterdam – The City of Pancakes & Canals

For the past two and a half days, we’ve been touring the beautiful city of Amsterdam. The weather was wonderful, around 75-80 every day with a pretty constant breeze. The downside is that we didn’t have air conditioning in our hostel, so that was different. But most nights, it cooled down to the 60s so…

A Tale of Two Crockpot Meals

Preparing for a big vacation means trying to save money, and one of the easiest ways to do that is by not eating out. But eating out is so much easier than cooking, so how do you solve that problem? Crockpot meals of course! One crockpot meal can produce enough food for a week of leftovers…

August – Hamburger Helper for Adults

It’s been a busy few weeks. Hell, a busy few months. So when trying to figure out this month’s new recipe, I wanted something easy. Zeus works most weekends, so while these new recipes may be a venture we wanted to do, I’m usually the one making it, so easier is better. He helps when he…

July – Stop Taking Away My Noodles!

The title of this post was Zeus’ response to my suggestion of making zucchini lasagna. We were trying to find a recipe for July’s meal of the month, and that was all I could think of to make with the ingredients that were already in the fridge. But then my mom tagged me in one of those Facebook…

Roasted Acorn Squash Goodness

An acorn squash was one of the items in our farm bag a few weeks ago. The first one we got went bad because I didn’t know what to do with it, so this time I was determined to figure something out. I looked at a few different recipes, but the majority of them were…

These Desserts Are Just Peachy

Over the past year or so, my dinosaur-loving friends and I have had movie nights to watch/make fun of all the installments of Jurassic Park. It’s taken this long to get through them all because we like to have other parties too, so these are jammed in-between. Each movie night, there is lots of delicious…

The Last Farm Bag

It’s a good day, and a sad day, because today is the last of our farm bag deliveries for a while. The next few months are going to be extremely busy, and we’ll be in Europe for most of September, so I suspended our deliveries until we get back. If we need veggies, we’ll just…

Why is the bread gone?

It’s farm bag day! I forgot to put the bag out today because I kind of forgot about the whole thing to be honest, but the farm bag came anyway 🙂 (they give you a reusable bag with all your produce and then you leave it out when your next delivery comes). It was missing…

It’s Farm Bag Day & I’m Happy as a Peach

Munching on watermelon from our last bag, I opened today’s delivery. What mysterious items does this week hold? I really forgot to look at the list so I had no idea. I see some green tomatoes in there! But that’s all I could tell until I opened it.  Once I did, this is how I felt about all…
