Planning for a Driving Tour through New England

If you follow me on Instagram you know that Currey and I have been on vacation. A glorious, 8 day vacation without our kids. In July we are celebrating 10 years of marriage and we felt this milestone was worth celebrating. As soon as my parents said they were free to come stay with the […]

Bacon and Avocado Chopped Salad

We are currently on a salad binge here at the Blandford house. Currey and I just returned from an incredible anniversary trip (more on that in posts to come). We spent a wonderful week touring New England. As we were planning our trip, we spent a lot of time looking into restaurants in each city […]

Momofuku Milk Bar Bagel Bombs

If you follow me on Instagram then you already know that Currey has recently left his job at Starbucks. We are thrilled that he will be able to focus all his time and energy on work at our church but the fact that that chapter of our lives is over still seems surreal. He was […]

Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

While I don’t jump on the weight loss bandwagon every January, I do tend to crave salads this time of year. I enjoy the holidays and all the food that comes with them so by the first couple of months of the new year my body seems to crave fresh produce and lots of greens. […]

Semi – Homemade Chocolate Croissants

One of my favorite ways to start the day is with breakfast as a family. Not the frantic pouring of cereal with a splash of milk, inhaled before flying out the door to our first activity breakfast but the breakfasts that we have the luxury to linger over. A breakfast that takes a little time […]

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Friends, I have made this Chicken Tortilla Soup so many times that I’ve lost count. And I take pictures of it every time. What I’ve realized that this soup is not very photogenic. Because I couldn’t get beautiful pictures of this soup, I debated posting it at all. But you need this Chicken Tortilla Soup […]

Pot Roast

Like most people I know, I tend to enjoy certain foods during certain times of the year. After the holidays, with endless sweet treats and decadent meals, we regularly juice and try to eat healthy. During the summer months, we tend to grill out and eat lots salads, when fresh produce is abundant. As soon […]

Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Growing up, my family would visit P.F. Chang’s any time that we traveled. It was always fun to explore a new city and we loved finding a P.F.Chang’s along the way. We didn’t have one in the town where I grew up so it was always a special treat to enjoy Mongolian Beef or Crispy […]

Candy Bar Ice Cream

  If your house is anything like ours, you are up to ears in Halloween candy. We saw our first snowflakes of the season on Halloween. While we were out trick or treating it was 40 degrees with high winds. We noticed significantly less trick or treaters out this year and people were unloading candy […]

Carrabba’s Herbed Dipping Oil

For the first few years that Currey and I were married, I was a part of the Junior League.  It was a great opportunity to meet new friends and volunteer in my community.  I got to serve on several projects and made great memories. A highlight of every year was our fundraising luncheon.  In addition […]

Here we go again…

  Hello friends! As is usually the case, I ended up taking a much longer break from blogging than I had initially anticipated. Life has been crazy busy. Yes, even busier than usual.  I’ve made a change in my work schedule that has taken time for us to get used to as a family. It’s […]

Asian Ramen Cabbage Salad

For the last 6 years, I’ve done a weekly bible study called Bible Study Fellowship. If you are looking for a study to help your faith grow or to learn how to better study the bible, BSF is worth checking out. It’s an interdenominational bible study and there are groups that meet all over the world. […]

Beet Juice

Before we had kids, we didn’t have great eating habits. We’d eat fast food a couple of times a week. I’d also eat fast food with my co-workers a couple of times a week as well. I had begun making more meals at home but I still wasn’t a great cook. We ate lots of […]

S’mores Bar

Can you believe it’s already June? The month of May just flew by! Each year I marvel at how busy May continues to be. Ballet recitals, parties to celebrate the end of school and so many other events celebrating the beginning to summer. It’s all fun but just keeps us busy. Every Memorial Day weekend, […]

Bacon Avocado Sandwiches

Hello there friends! I wasn’t planning on taking such a long break from blogging but I’m glad I did. Even a short break gives me time to miss blogging. I enjoy sharing recipes and keeping up this blog but constantly churning out posts can be draining. I’m returning from my hiatus refreshed and I’ve got […]
