When I was a teenager, my mom hung a cross-stitch on the wall that read “Happiness is being married to your best friend.” I thought it was so cheesy at the time (get it, it’s cheese week, haha!), but it turns out that little piece of craft work had it all figured out. Being married to your best friend is really amazing. We love to spend time together, and it doesn’t matter what we’re doing, it’s always so much better together. Continue reading
It is time to go gourmet as we start off cheese week! Today, I’m here to show off our haute cuisine – something that will make you say, “Now that’s some fancy business!”

We love spicy foods! We wanted to do spicy right, so we took soup week into the soup-adjacent category, and made chili. Not just any chili, mind you, I made my famous chili verde. Read on!
Since last week was taco week, we have no shortage of leftover tortillas in the house. When you’ve got leftover tortillas and it’s soup week, you make tortilla soup!
If you were going to market a food you make, what would it be?
When I first read this prompt, I knew exactly what I was going to talk about: canned goods. Mike and I started canning farmer’s market produce a few years ago, and I’ve spent most of the past few summers preserving foods (this summer has been the exception). Here are just a few of the things we’ve canned:
