My Aussie and Kiwi friends!

Spunky Coconut Shamrock Shake

homemade-shamrock-shake

Did you know that the Shamrock Shake has 54 ingredients?! Gross. And those dozens of ingredients aren’t too healthy (not that I have to tell you. I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir).

Kelly: My husband gets an idea to make a recipe… like twice a year (I’m laughing now ). Last time it was a Thai dish, this time it’s Vietnamese. He wanted to make pho, a super rich bone broth (which is soooo good for you), slow cooked with lots of fragrant spices. Getting the spices was…

Reflecting on 2014

Ashley-Hug

This Christmas marked six months that we have been living in this house in Southern California. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long! We miss the pool and hot tub at the condo we were renting down the street from this house, but having a big patio and yard is so nice. Usually there are…
