Strawberry Rhubarb Cookies

Last year I got a rhubarb plant from a friend, planted it, and forgot about it. Then this year it came back, happy as can be, thriving and taking up so much room with those massive leaves! I am an amateur when it comes to rhubarb. I think the only time I had tried it…

Roasted Peppers & Onion Spread – Dutch Oven

The other day I got an assortment of peppers for free. Anaheim, Banana, & Bell pepper, a spicy and a normal. I went about trying to think of what to do with them, and decided to make a sweet pepper spread, with the use of my new dutch oven. 🙂 With only a few ingredients…

Backpacking Lost Creek Wilderness

More specifically, Lake Park Lasso Loop in the Lost Creek Wilderness. My boyfriend and I finally found a weekend this summer to go backpacking, so we jumped on the opportunity to check out the Lost Creek Wilderness. I did some research and decided upon this particular loop because it was less miles than others. This…

Dog Rain Jacket DIY

Our adorable sausage of a dog, Cosma, has very short hair, and whenever we go on hikes she usually gets pretty cold. We have a cute sweater for her to stay warm, and if we know there will be rain or snow we usually give her our spare rain jacket, but since she is so…

Curried Chicken Noodle Soup

I have had a bag of egg noodles sitting in my kitchen, probably since we moved in, over a year ago…This started to irk me, so I decided to finally use them by making a chicken noodle soup. I also happen to have a lot of yellow curry powder, so I re-routed my decision to…

Easy Pad Thai

I realized the other day that I have never made Pad Thai before, at least not the sauce. I have cheated and bought the pre-made stuff, which is so-so, but never actually made the whole meal from scratch. I started to look for a recipe and then remembered, my mom made the best Pad Thai…

The Struggles of Being a Millennial

Time for a little rant. Let’s talk about Millenials. Millennials are generally defined as people born between 1981 and 1996, I happen to fall right into that time, hence I am a millennial.  All over social media, people are negatively commenting, and blaming millennials for many of the world problems. How on earth could that…

Oh Wedding’s

This past Thursday I got to attend a wedding. It was my boyfriends older brother and his now wife’s big day. The venue was located in Evergreen, CO. There was an event cabin along the lake with a 360 degree view of the mountains. Beautiful. During the ceremony it started to lightly rain, and then…

Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

I am attending a wedding this Thursday, and the dress that I rented for the event is very fitted. I was nervous about that fact, so I decided to give up gluten for two weeks, and all I can say is, thank goodness I am not gluten intolerant. It is so hard to not eat…

DIY Roof Top Tent

A while back, my boyfriend had this crazy idea to build his own roof top tent. Do you know what that is? They are these new nifty tents that literally sit on top of your car, and just pop right open when you are ready to use. Here are some examples:  Anyways, his original idea…

Durango Bound

This year, 4th of July fell on a Thursday, which, lucky for me, means I got Friday off too, making it a 4-day weekend baby! And what did I do with all that time off you might ask? Great question, I went to Durango! Durango is an amazing town located down in the four corners…

Olive Bread – Dutch Oven

If you read my blog post last week, you will know that I just had a birthday, and with that I got a brand new Dutch Oven. I was so excited to get this, that I used it right away, and made some dank bread.  Earlier that day I was craving a bloody mary so…
