Over the weekend Scott and I celebrated our 6th anniversary. Don't worry, I won't bore you with all the mushy, gushy details, instead you get to hear about The Time Someone Scared the Crap Out Of Me.
I ran to the store for a couple groceries before our date night. Like any other normal trip to for groceries, I unlocked the car, loaded the bags in, entered my door, put my keys in the ignition and....saw something out the corner of my eye. I nearly had a heart attack when I looked up an saw a Read more [...]
Eczema is a beast.
In my previous post about Natural Eczema Relief, I wrote a little bit about our experience and the many, many things we've tried without success. Today I'm sharing some pictures and some snippets of my understanding of Eczema. Here's a couple good "before" pictures. These were taken May 24, 2014. I can't say for certain if this was the worst I've seen his skin or just sort of in the middle, but it looked pretty bad. The red, inflamed, rash you see all over his abdomen continued Read more [...]
It's been quite awhile since I've posted anything. I've honestly switched gears a little and I'm pursuing some other interests at this time. Especially since I'm still struggling with the whole: plan a meal, cook a meal, photograph a meal, edit pictures of food, write about food, and post it, while pregnant. Not too appealing.
With that said, today I want to share some experience we've had with eczema recently. Our sweet little Kyson, who is just over 1 year old, has been consumed with an Read more [...]
I have some explaining to do around here.
When I first launched my blog back in December, I was so excited and gung ho about it. I was on a roll: cooking, photographing, editing, and posting. I loved it. Then something unexpected happened: I found out I was pregnant.
From there things sort of spiraled downhill. For those of you who have experienced the wonderful (and by wonderful I mean miserable) symptoms of early pregnancy, you understand me when I say I completely lost energy Read more [...]
Ready for some seriously delicious chocolate cake? While some might think it's just another sheet cake, my family and I submit that it is not! Thus, we lovingly call it Texas FUDGE Cake. In case you can't tell from the pictures, the frosting is quite literally chocolate fudge, just a little thinned out.
The actual cake part is pretty fudgey too. Super moist, a little dense, and full of rich chocolate flavor. This cake is an undisputed favorite among Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Read more [...]

This is a cake I cannot take any credit for. Everyone, meet my Grandma Christensen. Otherwise known as Zoe (rhymes with boy, not zoh-ee), otherwise nicknamed Zeke and Zed with Grandpa (I'm still not sure which is which...).
On Sunday, November 17, 2013, it will mark 10 years since the passing of this incredible woman. If there is anyone, besides my mom, that I strive to be like, it's my Grandma C. She was the most loving, compassionate, Read more [...]
The injury happened on Thursday night, November 14th, around 5 pm. Blake and I were in the kitchen and he had a little, soft plastic, almost soccer ball sized ball, he was playing with and kicking around. I turned my back to turn on the oven and start dinner, and he somehow stepped on the ball and fell. I didn't see what happened, but based on the research I've done and how the ball was placed, I believe he went to kick it (or move it out from under the dishwasher edge with his foot), ended up stepping Read more [...]
