This and That


  • The boys got dressed up for Easter, but only for the picture. They were back in sweats in no time!
  • For Easter, I made the ham and the dinner rolls on the Traeger. Both were awesome!
  • The boys have been loving Waffle Wednesdays. I used to make waffles on the weekends, but the days are pretty much the same now. This is our favorite waffle recipe.
  • Has anyone watched the new Trolls movie? Worth renting?
  • Stay calm.


  • New this week, two easy dinners for you! This one and this one! Enjoy!
  • We had a great Easter at home with the boys. The boys hunted for eggs, we had church at home, and made and ate a lot of good food. Now, I am trying to hide the leftover Easter candy from the boys…and from myself:) I guess I better make more cookies to use it up.
  • We have been doing grocery pickup at Smith’s once a week and it is giving me life! Pickup days are like Christmas:) I love getting fresh produce and new ingredients to cook with. I sign up for a day every week to make sure I get a time and then I just keep adding to my cart during the week.
  • I was hoping to have lots of time to read, but with homeschool, work, cleaning, cooking three meals, making 127 snacks every day, and entertaining the boys I haven’t picked up a book at all. This one looks good though and I want to start it soon.
  • My favorite pantry containers, in case you are in an organizing mood.
  • If you have our cookbook and have been cooking from it, please leave a review! And if you make a recipe from our blog, please leave a star rating and comment! These reviews and ratings help us out SO much! Thanks for your support! You guys are the best!
  • The perfect white sneakers.
  • Love this colorful craft closet.
  • I finished Little Fires Everywhere. Loved it! Grey’s finale was decent. I am looking forward to the new season Dead to Me, it comes out May 8th. What are you watching?
  • Cute top and bag for summer!
  • You don’t need flour to make these cookies! A favorite at our house!
Get the best of the best!

  1. hey y’all- great list! Love the pic of the boys- so cute! The food looks so yummy! Praying all this craziness will be over soon. God is in control

  2. I have been making your Monster Cookies for my husband to bring into work – we own an essential business – as a morale booster. A fair bit have been enjoyed at home too ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Love and gelato is a really sweet/quick read. My daughter (13) offered it to me to read. ๐Ÿ™‚ After Italy, the author has a book set in Ireland (Love and Luck) which I think is even better as it is a girl following a travel guide for the brokenhearted. The excerpts from the guide are really cute and funny.
