Hearty and delicious meatless breakfast that's also great for dinner!



I hope all of you here in the US had a great Memorial day! It was nice to take a break from the blog for a few days and spend time with my family and friends!

We went to a huge flea market on Saturday and found some pretty fun stuff, including a case of fresh cherries and strawberries! So delicious! We were pretty lazy on Sunday and since it was raining my daughter and I had a Skip-Bo marathon! She is a pro at that game already and is totally addicted! We had friends over for dinner yesterday and enjoyed another rainy day at home!

How many of you grew up drinking SunnyD?

SunnyD was a huge part of my childhood! From drinking it at home and friend's houses, to the classic TV commercials, it was everywhere in the 90's! Now that my daughter is eight, I love to share my childhood favorites with her and she now enjoys SunnyD as much as I did when I was younger!

One of the best parts about play dates and picnics on sunny spring and summer days, is snacks and beverages! I love to create fun and fruity drinks for my daughter to share with her friends while they're out in the yard playing ball, running through the sprinkler, or riding bikes on the sidewalk!

Caesar Salmon Sandwich Recipe

Tasty and easy to make sandwich that's perfect for lunch or picnics!



Whenever springtime rolls around, I'm all about sandwiches, salads and anything fruity! Quick and easy meals are always on the agenda, so we can spend more time outside! Living in Minnesota, after the cold brutal winters, we tend to kick into high gear from May to October. Schedules are full of BBQ's, picnics, camping, swimming at the lake and everything else in between. So much fun!
