Banana-Oat Breakfast Smoothie


This quick and easy banana-oat smoothie has been my absolute favorite thing to make for breakfast lately. Not only is it really healthy, it's also really satisfying. I stay feeling full for at least a couple of hours after a drink this creamy treat and that's not normal for me when I've tried to get by on breakfast smoothies before.

Classic German Baking, A Cook Book Review


Well, you guys aren't going to believe this... or maybe you will (we have been going a little nuts around this house lately...well, for just like a short 12 months!) I just rediscovered the review copy Classic German Baking that was sent to me in November of 2016! (can you say "winning?") Yes, it's true. I'm not sure if simply stating "My bad" is sufficient here, but anyway I do feel just awful about this untimely review!

Allow me to explain, eh hem.  You see, we remodeled the small kitchen in our old house in early November of last year, right around the time I received this cookbook in the mail. When it arrived it was packed safely inside a cardboard box and it was set on the baker's rack in my kitchen. Unfortunately, it blended directly into the sea of several other cardboard boxes full of things we were packing up to empty out the cupboard, cabinets and shelves while we made over the kitchen and it ended up stored with the rest of them in our garage.

Orecchiette with Cherry Tomatoes and Shrimp




Oops, I did it again. Yep, I fell off the blogging map and for about three weeks this time!  It just seems like ever since we collected the keys for our new home back in the beginning of May, that time is just slipping away like sand... like the wind...like the waves...?? 

Wow, I'm not sure my attempt at conveying a sense of drama to you was truly effective in that last sentence and as I re-read it those words actually prompted mental images of the beach for me. How about you? Think those words might indicate a subconscious desire?! You bet. You know, I mean that the 'dreaming about the beach' part is probably, definitely, subconsciously true. And the 'time slipping away like sand' part? Wait, yes, it's definitely true! Anyhoo...
