We love salad recipes any time of year, but we especially love salads in the summer when we can include fresh fruits and veggies from our garden. There’s nothing quite like home grown produce that you’ve picked yourself. Of course, if you’re in a place where you can’t have a garden, finding a local farmer’s market is the next best thing. Either way, these delicious summer salad recipes will quickly become a favorite in your home. [Read more…]
We love campfire food and camping out during the summer! Check out our Camping Prep List if you are new to camping. It’s great bonding time with the family and there’s really nothing like sleeping under the stars and making memories around the campfire. Fellow campers know that one of the more enjoyable parts of camping (once you’ve set up your tent, of course) is cooking over the campfire. It’s lots of fun, but so often winds up with burnt food or hot dogs lost to the flames. Ugh! Instead of that huge bummer, give these easy campfire food ideas a try! [Read more…]

Ever wondered what Hygge is all about? We did too. We investigated, and following are our thoughts on hygge and why it should be a part of your life.
All year long, life is hectic and stressful. It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day and focus on “just getting through.” This attitude saps the joy out of living and when the dark, cold months arrive, many people battle seasonal depression or other mood concerns. It’s well known that meditation can help with stress management and elevate your mood. Meditation helps with being mindful and literally rewires your brain. Knowing that makes the concept of hygge (pronounced hue-guh or hoo-gha) that much more incredible. Hygge is basically mindfulness and being present – yet much more, too. [Read more…]

Just like people can be allergic to peanuts, shellfish, or any other food, our furry kids can have pet food allergies too. This can be frustrating for pet parents and distressing for your four-legged buddies. Thankfully, there are ways to treat and manage pet food allergies that don’t involve daily doses of expensive medications.

Instead, you need outdoor games that are fun for kids and adults. These DIY backyard games provide hours of entertainment for the whole family! Your house will be the cool place to come for cookouts, backyard fun, and making memories this summer! [Read more…]
