Curry Roasted Carrot Soup


Fall is upon us and there is nothing that screams fall to me like soup! I honestly love soup, I could eat it three times a week and be happy. My husband isn’t much of a soup year-round type person, but lucky for us we live in the frozen tundra six months out of the year so we get to enjoy soup quite a bit!  This soup combines some of my favorite things: carrots, squash, and curry! It is the…

Vanilla Almond Granola


I am one of the worst breakfast eaters. If it isn’t right in front of my face, ready to go, most of the time I just don’t eat it. Let’s be real here, even without breakfast it is often a battle for me to make it to work on time… Thankfully, I work for my husband. And his best friend. And they are forgiving. 😉 So, I am always on the hunt for simple things I can make or easily…

The Legacy of Grandpa Claude


I will never forget the first time I met Mark’s grandpa. He reached out his hand and said something along the lines of “Hi there, name’s Claude. And here’s where two good hands meet,” as he shook my hand. Little did I know that moment would be forever engrained upon my memory of a man who has become so special to me. Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Grandpa Claude, you just know what a truly special man…

German Hot Potato Salad


One of the things I love about small town Midwest is that whenever there is a need, whether it be a wedding, funeral, or just a significant event in the community, people come out in the droves with food. Small town America shows love in food, and especially small town North Dakota.  There are certain dishes you’ll always find in the lineup during any community potluck. I’ve shared the recipe for my favorite Potluck Taco Salad and one of the…

Taco Stuffed Peppers


It is no secret here that I’ve continually shared my love of Mexican food. I seriously could eat some form of it three times a week and never tire of it. So, when you find yourself with an abundance of peppers, what else is a taco lover supposed to be besides stuff them taco style!?  These taco stuffed peppers were awesome and super easy to make. They were like a little taco meatloaf encased in the peppers.  I upped the…

Old Fashioned Corn Relish


Hi my name is Jenny and I am addicted to canning. No joke I think I have nine different kinds of jam in my pantry. And let’s not even get into pickled items…  Last year when our sweet corn patch was going full force, a family friend of ours brought us a jar of corn relish she made from the sweet corn we gave her. She said it was her mother’s recipe and remembered eating it as a young girl.…

Bounty on the Blackfoot at The Resort at Paws Up


In the novel Travels with Charley, John Steinbeck writes: “I’m in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana it is love. And it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it.” And if you’ve ever been to Montana, I am sure you know exactly what Steinbeck is talking about. The mountains are picturesque, there is vast rangeland, the rivers are abundant… Much of Montana is just like a postcard. I…

Thyme-Vodka Lemonade


In my wrap-up of our Great Canadian Harley trip, I shared about my love for Park Distillery in Banff, Alberta.  Not only do they craft some great spirits, their cocktail menu is so creative, the atmosphere is perfection, and the employees are super friendly. We had an amazing time enjoying some drinks, chatting with the bartenders, and taking in the atmosphere while in Banff. I tried one of their mocktails, a thyme lemonade utilizing a thyme simple syrup. How clever is that!? Being…

Great Canadian Harley Trip


If you’ve followed this blog for any amount of time, you’ve probably become aware that the hubby and I love to take some pretty epic Harley trips. After all, we spent nearly a week on the Harley after our wedding, we took the Harley out to California last year, and this year we decided to explore up in Canada. For living so close to Canada now, I personally have never been up there. I have lots and lots of Canadian…

Classic Peach Crisp (with How-to Video)


Summer has officially come to an end and while I love fall, I am not ready to let summer go yet. I am still soaking up every last ray of sunshine and every last dish coming out of my kitchen that screams summer. I made BLTs the other night and I also had a box of peaches that was just calling to be made into crisps!  If there is hands down one fruit I could eat every day for the…
