So I have discovered since I made the “healthier” Funfetti Cake Batter Dip, I can do so much more with it than just dip! It is campfire season and S’mores are a must. But when you run out of marshmallows you improvise. I decided to pull out the cake batter dip and slap on a big spoonful with the chocolate on the graham cracker and OMG!!! Pure Bliss!!!
Yes, I do have a weakness for cake batter so I think anything that tastes like cake batter is just heaven, but these were actually really good. I...
On our recent Morel Mushroom Hunting Trip, we stopped in at one of our favorite “watering holes”. Laht Neppur Brewing Co. From the outside, it looks a bit uninviting, but I promise you, it’s well worth the stop.
Located in Waitsburg, WA in a small white building on the main drag ( if you blink, you might miss it) they are brewing up some first class beers. The name means simply, “Drink to Life”. We are partial to the Peach Hefeweizen and the Belgian Wit, but you must try...
Have you ever eaten a Morel Mushroom? They are seriously the best mushroom ever. We are lucky enough to have an area near enough for a day trip to find these little treasures. They are crazy expensive to buy and now I know why. They are so hard to find! We spent a few hours hunting and only came back with a medium sized paper bag full.
The best way to cook these up is debatable, but I prefer simply saute’d with garlic and butter.

A car and a dress? How can I say they are similar in any way? After driving the 2013 Kia Optima SXL, let me tell you – they are very similar indeed.
We all have that one dress. The dress that is “THE” dress. You fell in love with it at first sight, when you put it on you feel confident and sexy. The dress that if it was acceptable, you would wear it every day. For some it is a prom dress or wedding dress. Maybe it’s the little black cocktail dress. Whatever dress it...
On a recent trip to Seattle, I just happen to stumble upon VegFest 2013. I had never been to one, so I thought I for sure needed to get up and see it. Little did I know, this little gathering is very popular here in Seattle and I had to wait in a very long line to get in despite showing up 15 minutes before the door opened! I knew then, I was going to find some great new things.
Vegfest primarily is made up of food vendors – both Vegetarian and Vegan options. Many of them new start-ups local to the Northwest area....
I recently had the pleasure of attending, “Introduction to the World of Wines” at Taste Washington 2013. This class, moderated by: Sean Sullivan of Washington Wine Report, and paneled by: Dr. Keving Pogue of Whitman College, Thomas Price of The Metropolitan Grill, Linda Murphy author of “American Wine” and Thomas Henick-Kling of Washington State University, focused on what makes this region a prime location for growing grapes and making wine, as well as understanding the difference in varieties with blind...
I’m so excited that I have been invited to attend the Taste Washington Food & Wine event in Seattle this weekend. Taste Washington is the largest single region food and wine show featuring over 225 wineries, 60 local restaurants and 13 award-winning chefs. It all is happening at Century Link Center, Downtown Seattle. I simply can not wait to see all the wonderful food and demonstrations – (I’m hoping to bring back some great Vegetarian ideas) and taste Washington wines!!
What will the show...
If you know me, you know I love a good bottle of red wine. Well that is exactly what I found in Wild Horse Winery Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon. This 2010 Cabernet is 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Syrah, giving it a pure, rich Cabernet flavor.
Wild Horse Winery
Most of this Wild Horse variety comes from the Paso Robles AVA with 9% coming from Monterey AVA. The warm Monterey area yeilds a rich and deep grape lending delicious flavors to the wine. It has been described as having flavors of cherry and vanilla...
My kids both have summer birthdays and I find it extremely difficult to arrange not one, but two parties over the summer where we will be in town AND all their friends will be in town. So this year, after both attended friends party and started dreaming of their next party which in reality probably wouldn’t happen, I decided to throw them a “half-birthday” party.
My youngest daughter was turning 7 1/2 in just a few weeks AND it was on a weekend. Perfect! They were so excited to start the planning.
Luckily, my kids like...
I have got summer on my mind… ahhh… hopefully it will be here soon! Until then, how about dreaming of what you will be wearing when the sunshine and warm weather appear. This is my Coffee Date Collection. Casual. Cute. Yet Sophisticated and Fun. Where would YOU wear this?
