I know it's been a little quiet around here lately. The hubby and I just got back from a much-needed vacation to Albuquerque, New Mexico where we visited some of his family, went hiking and camped. I was pretty busy before hand packing up everything--and making list upon list of what to bring--cleaning up the house, and making sure plans were set for all of the animals. We took Delilah of course, left Jack and William at home with big bowls of food, and boarded Roxy. It's always amazing how ... Read More about …And I’m Back!
My hubby's birthday was this weekend (May 11th) and he turned the big 3-0--he's still in denial. Since it was his big day I let him decide what he wanted for his birthday dinner, and dessert.

This week's Pinterest Meal I made is White Pizza with Chicken and Herbs. As soon as I saw this recipe I KNEW I had to try it. The only thing was I didn't have any pizza dough on hand, so of course, I had to whip some up in my bread machine--Have I ever mentioned how much I love this thing?? The recipe was pretty easy to follow, I just wish there had been some step by step photos. Whenever I made a homemade Alfredo type sauce, it always turns out either lumpy, or way too ...
