Walnut Zucchini Loaves

September 4, 2017

READ MORE

Mini zucchini loaves are the perfect little way to use up some of those beautiful zucchinis that are abundant at the local farmer’s market right now. We made a healthier version by using whole wheat flour, coconut oil, and unrefined sugar. They’re even dairy-free, thanks to Almond Breeze® almond beverage! Our MH team is big fans of Almond Breeze® and love to use it in our daily recipes! It’s made with California almonds that come straight from the Blue Diamond Growers cooperative, which has been

Celebrating Sweet Lillya’s Church Dedication

August 25, 2017

READ MORE

On a bright, beautiful Sunday afternoon, we hosted a very special long table meal in our backyard to celebrate the church dedication of our little Lillya Grace. Hosting a long-table dinner in our backyard is something I wanted to do since we started building our house, and this one did not disappoint!

How to Create the Perfect Gallery Wall

August 22, 2017

READ MORE

Two words: Gallery wall. Oh how I love a good gallery wall! I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to complete this hallway gallery wall in our home. I don’t know why but I find them so intimidating yet totally doable. You need think about which frames to choose, to how many frames and, of course, to how to arrange them (See the gallery wall, which I so loved in our old house). I would also like to add just how big

Oh, summer tomatoes. Is there anything more succulent? This end-of-summer tomato soup is the best meal for transitioning into those slightly cooler days at the end of summer. We used a variety of tomatoes from the farmer’s market to make it. (I’m addicted to going to the farmer’s markets right now, anyone else?) Lightly roasting the tomatoes adds some depth to the soup.

I have a handful of stores that are my go-to for staple items, making it affordable and easy to switch out items regularly. One of those

Impromptu Family Photos at Rose Ranch

August 9, 2017

READ MORE

Aren’t the best memories the ones that are unplanned, unexpected and last minute? Our trip down the Washington and Oregon coast was a combination of all of the above. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that one of my highlights included passing this gorgeous barn at Rose Ranch. I had never seen or heard of it before, but the moment we drove by I made Troy turn around so I could take a picture of it! I mean look
