It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for a NEW This and ThatToday, we are sharing what’s new on the blog, some fun finds, and what we’ve been up to! Please leave a comment if you have any questions or you just want to say hi, we love hearing from you. Have a wonderful day!


  • Caleb turned 12 yesterday. He wanted a rice krispie treat cake. It had four different flavors: Biscoff, Oreo, Classic, and Fruity Pebbles.
  • We’ve lost a few chickens over the past two weeks and we’ve been trying to figure it out. Well, we found the raccoon this week. We are down to one chicken. It’s sad.
  • Joggers.
  • If you fly Delta, there are big changes coming.
  • The leaves are starting to change in the mountains. I hope we can get up there this weekend.

  1. Happy Birthday Caleb! Your dad’s cinnamon rolls look delicious. I want to be on the football team. Your stuffed pepper soup looks so good.

  2. Hi Maria, my families getting ready for football sports is a big deal and her family. Thanks for all your great recipes. I use them all and your famous cookbook is on my Christmas list. Have a great weekend.

  3. It can’t be possible that Caleb is 12 already! Yikes, where has the time gone? Looks like a pretty incredible cake, too–guess he is now man enough to handle all that. So handsome, too. I love your skillet apples recipe, but I make mine with apple juice instead of butter–cuts down a bit on the calories? Still yummy as long as there is enough cinnamon! Love your This and That every week!

  4. Our dog died in June and since then we lost two chickens to raccoons. It is just awful. Grossly enough one sign is they often only take the head. 🙁

    On a happier note – love the idea of a rice Krispy cake! Maybe I’ll do that for my son next month. Thanks for the great recipes and ideas!
