Over the weekend, I finished reading the book Silence by Natasha Preston. Although it does feel like it is written for a Young Adult audience, the subject matter is mature and the plot caught my interest when I read a description of the book. Overall, I would give this book 4-stars out of 5. I had it finished in just a few days and had a hard time putting it down, even reading later into the night than I should have and every free moment I had in between jobs. There were some spots that seemed to contradict each other, but it wasn’t offputting and I have already started reading the sequel.

New Years Eve is upon us, and with it will come thousands, if not millions, of parties. There are two celebrations happening tonight because tonight is also the Fiesta Bowl between Ohio State and Clemson…because let’s face it…this is the only game today that truly matters! (Go Bucks!)

It’s been awhile since my last post. The past few months have proven to be extremely busy without many free moments. While a lot of what has been going on has been fun and exciting, for the most part, it’s been a lot of just life getting away from me without knowing where time or the rest of the year has gone. How can it already be the end of 2016, when it feels like it has just begun?

Normally breakfasts around here are something simple…a bowl of cereal, a bagel popped into the toaster, or a yogurt with some granola sprinkled on top.

Today, we were in the mood for something that we haven’t had in awhile. Nutella Banana Crepes. We were first introduced to these when we went to San Francisco almost six years ago. There was a little cafe about a mile from where we were staying that we happened to stumble across our first morning there. The cafe was by the bay overlooking the water with a breathtaking view.

After looking at the menu, we decided that these crepes sounded too good to pass up. When we got them, they tasted even better than they sounded; a light wrap with warm, gooey Nutella and bananas, encased into a bundle of awesomeness.  Read More Nutella Banana Crepes

It’s been awhile since I’ve made my last dessert and figured it was time for me to put the kitchen to use and test a new recipe once more.

With cherries in season…and on sale, I thought what better than to pick up a bag of fresh cherries and see what kind of recipe I could find to use them with. The downfall to fresh cherries is picking out the seeds. However this didn’t take as much time as you would think and the end product is so much better than what you would get from sugared up canned, preserved cherries from the baking isle.

Ok, maybe not afraid of the rain, but close…

On second thought, one of our dogs might actually be afraid of the rain. The second a drop of water falls from the sky, she refuses to go outside onto the grass, and if we force her to, she tiptoes around the dewy blades as gently as possibly, acting like we are forcing a horrible death upon her.

With some of the recent storms that have recently taken over Ohio during the what should be sleeping hours of the morning, sleep has been hard to come by. If not for the loud bangs of thunder or the bright flashes of lightning, then it’s two 40+ pound dogs who think they are sneaky as they try to tip-toe onto the bed one paw at a time, then quickly lay down in a ball as still as possibly. Stealthy they are not, but totally adorable they are.
