Homemade Wonton Soup

Soup is a staple in our house come wintertime. There are many days when we have it for both lunch and dinner. I’m certainly not complaining. I love me some soup! I do, however, try to add a bit of variety to our soup consumption. I’d hate to have a soup burnout amongst the hubby and kiddos before I’m ready for soup season to be over! One way I prevent the burnout is by making wonton soup; a family favorite!...more

Super Bowl Sparkling Cocktails

In my household, Super Bowl isn't just a day where we gather around the tv and watch men running with a ball across a large grassy field while trying to avoid getting tackled by the opposing team. It's an event. We usually have anywhere between 20 and 40 of our closest football-loving friends over. Decorations start going up a few days before game day and eventually they cover practically every square inch of blank space. ...more
