Rumberry Punch

I’m not sure if many of you know this, but I spend a good part of my life earning my living by bartending. From the ages of 18 to about 28, when I worked – that’s what I was doing. I’m not a big drinker, personally, but I LOVE making a really really great drink.  Continue reading →

I’ve got several Minecrafters in this house currently. I’ve heard hours upon hours of conversations on building, creepers, zombies, diamond pick axes, and so many other things that I have no idea what the purpose is, or why it is so important, but OH MY GOSH it is SO important. I’ve refereed many Minecraft arguments too, but thankfully those seem to be few and far between these days. Enter Gameband.

Blueberry Banana Green Smoothie

Are you still full of carby tukey awesomeness? We JUST finished up all of our leftovers on Wednesday night. That’s a lot of turkey, and potatoes, and stuffing, and gravy. Oh the gravy! YUM! As much as I LOVE the Thanksgiving holiday feasting, it leaves me feeling a little over-indulged, and ready to make some room in my diet for some other healthy options for some quick lunches and snacks.

Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup

Homemade Turkey Noodle SoupThere is something so amazing about making something completely from scratch. It isn’t always possible or practical, but when you have the time, the motivation, and the inclination, the rewards are awesome! Turkey noodle soup is one of the best parts about Thanksgiving for me. We always have plenty of turkey left, and if you give yourself enough time you won’t even need any extra bouillon, stock, or broth added to the mix.
