Chicken Soup (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Happy Daylight Savings!  I'm sure most of you remembered this, but I didn't.  What a nice surprise!  Two weeks ago, I thought we gained an extra hour, but was sadly disappointed.  Then I guess I forgot about it. Last night, our two little ones had two of our favorite cousins sleep over.  It was a busy night filled with coloring, video games, dress-up, jumping on the beds, movies, and popcorn.  Finally, we got them all to sleep....more

I do enjoy a piece of extra dark chocolate daily but that’s pretty much it. However, with the weather getting slightly cooler, my sweet tooth has been acting up recently....more

SAUSAGE AND SWEET POTATO SKILLET FRITTATA

Did anyone else have a wet and rainy Halloween? We did here in NorCal. I kinda liked it.
