a Krispie Treat! 

DIY, Food July 10, 2015

One must always have a tasty snack in the house. So I made my forever a major throw back snack, rice Krispy treats. 

Here’s what you’ll need: 1/4 cup butter, 1 (10oz) bag of marshmallows, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 7 cups Rice Krispie cereal. 

Here’s what you should do: I’m a big believer in double boiling as opposed to cooking right in a pot. I even rig my own boiler with a pot of water and a metal bowl.  


Put the marshmallows, butter, and vanilla in together and stir until even. Make sure you keep it moving. 

Then add the Rice Krispie cereal and turn off the stove as you mix. Put it all in a cool greased pan, I lined mine with parchment paper, and wait for it to cool. 

Now eat…Yummmm! 


Beach Day! 

Food, Lifestyle, Photography July 6, 2015

I decided to pull out my old picnic basket for a post Indipendence Day beach trip. I filled it with goodies and didn’t forget the wine glasses. 

I made some veggie burgers filled with love. All my sandwiches may be heart shaped from here on out. I can’t stand crusts, this is a good excuse to be rid of them. 
Gio even fire grilled some squash! Such healthy beach goers. 

Well, I had a few crispy marshmallows. 

I had a cute little “love” temp tatt which motivated some great convos about the state of things and the world.  

Happy Fourth!!!

For my family and myself the Fourth is a day we can shut out the world and spend some much needed together time. We BBQ, talk, eat an assortment of picnic foods, and watch fireworks from the roof of the car.


Three generations! 


I’m teaching my mom how to take a selfie. She’s got that low angle glare down to a science. 


My hubby seems pretty uninterested. But that’s an only child for you, always in their heads. 

Then meeeee! Happy Fourth. Sorry no crafts today! They are coming.
