Cinnamon Chip Mocha Milkshake

Cinnamon Chip Mocha Milkshake

I think I can speak for most, that every once in a while we want to throw together a quick treat for just ourselves.  Many of us have little time to think about it, and none of us want to run to the store to make it happen.  Yet, in seconds, that chance to satisfy […]

Theologically and missionally focused, The Well is a non-profit […]

Portillo’s Chopped Salad

Panasonic Microwave Oven Review

Panasonic Microwave

I’m a gadget geek at heart, although I’m not sure anyone who even knows me well would label me as such. It’s sort of a closet characteristic. Particularly, kitchen gadgets strike me at the heart. As a food blogger, I’m given many opportunities to review kitchen products, such as this microwave oven. The Panasonic Genius […]

Chicago-Style Hot Dog

Does anyone else feel like Memorial Day is sneaking up on us very quickly?  Maybe it’s because the temperatures have been cooler than normal.  Or, maybe it’s just me and my busy days of being a new mom again.  But, seriously, the holiday is right around the corner and I’m not sure of our plans […]

Tiramisu Brownies

Tiramisu Brownies

Tiramisu was first introduced into my life when I was just a young kid.  My family loves Italian food, and every year for my birthday we would eat at a local Italian restaurant where Tiramisu was my choice of dessert.  This, combined with my infamous love for brownies, makes this Italian twist a perfect combination […]
