Oreo Delight Ice Cream Sandwiches

Can you tell we have been eating a lot?  We love how food can bring people together, break awkward barriers down, and create good conversation around the table.  This is most frequently played out at Missional Community every Wednesday evening, but also happens in the every day as Aaron and I strive to build relationships … Continue reading

Apple Bar Goodness

I’m on a roll with recipes… at least these past 2 days.  Since I have been failing to sit down and write about life these past few months, I figure I can at least document good food we’ve been eating and share it with all of you fine people. These apple bars are good.  Not … Continue reading

Granola My Heart

I was talking with a sweet friend recently and found a shared love of granola.  She asked for my recipe, and since this particular recipe just came out of the oven, I thought I’d share it here in case there are any other granola-lovers out there.  This recipe was adapted from a blog here, but … Continue reading

Tetzlaff Pizza Crust

When I first met Aaron’s family (and by Aaron’s family, I mean immediate + extended all at the same time – it was a wonderful 4th of July weekend!), we made what I later learned was a cabin and family staple: homemade pizza.  I acquired the Tetzlaff family recipe for the pizza crust that day, … Continue reading

Dill Carrots

mmmm dill carrots.  Perfect summer/fall perfection. Or anytime, really.  It’s been a long while since I shared a recipe for things Aaron and I have tried, so I thought it was about time.  This recipe will amaze you.  It’s unique, wonderful, and brings out the sweetness of carrots along with the fresh dill taste.  So … Continue reading

Asparagus Soup

Well, we found another great recipe that gets us even more vegetables in our diet.  And protein.  Not to mention all the good vitamins from the asparagus.  (asparagus is a funny looking word, isn’t it?)  It’s creamy and wonderful; and the best part is there isn’t any heavy cream or really much dairy in it … Continue reading

Sneaky Mashed Potatoes

In case you didn’t know, I’m a type-1 diabetic.  And while I often take advantage of being able to give myself insulin for how much I just ate (compared to being careful with carbohydrate intake and being thoughtful to the types of carbs I eat) Aaron and I have been trying to get more vegetables … Continue reading

The World’s Best Caramel Rolls

and by best, I mean EASIEST.  And by easiest, I mean BEST.  Do you see how interchangeable these two terms are for this recipe? This is a recipe straight from my childhood; nothing says “weekend” or “holiday” better than this recipe.  So on this lazy Saturday morning, while Aaron works on his 25-page paper and … Continue reading

Apple Walnut Salad

Before you think this “Apple Walnut Salad” has your traditional salad things such as greens… let me stop you right there.  Aaron created this and we refined it a couple of nights back.  We think you’ll love it as much as we do! Apple Walnut Salad For the dressing: 2 TBSP Balsamic Vinegar (NOT the … Continue reading
