My daughter has officially started school. This has brought on thinking about lunches to pack for my daughter and myself when time is short in the morning. If you are looking for lunch ideas and cute ways to present or pack a lunch check out the Rock the Lunch Box website link below:
This website even has filter options for vegetarian, gluten free, nut free and most popular.
It features photos of various lunchboxes that were submitted by parents. I’ve been using this website to come up with fun lunchbox packing ideas. I hope it helps you too…

We’ve been having unusually hot weather and today is the record at 93 degrees with no wind. I can’t think in this kind of heat, my brain starts to shut down and get sleepy :)
Needless to say my house is super hot and I don’t feel like cooking. So we made a salad with a creamy lemon vinaigrette dressing, accompanied by a cool turkey sandwich with cheese and cold tomato slices. For dessert, we had frozen red grapes. They were so cold in my mouth, like little mini Popsicles. They definitely hit the spot.
If you are faced with a heat wave and are faced with making a salad for dinner.

I don’t know about other parts of the country but we’ve been having an unusually warm summer here in the Pacific Northwest. More like a mini-heat wave, if you can call a few weeks of 85-90 degrees a heat wave :) All this hot weather has me thinking of different ways to beat the heat starting with cool drinks.
Here’s a refreshing summer classic with an unusual twist…
Folks if you haven’t tried brown butter buttermilk syrup on fluffy pancakes then you are missing out on a slice of heaven. I know what you are thinking. Eeew, buttermilk in syrup! I thought the same thing and figured it would have a curdling effect. But I assure you it doesn’t. It tastes like a vanilla caramel syrup. It is super smooth and worthy of pouring on a tall stack of steamy pancakes. It takes about 10 minutes total to make and serves 4-6 people. Try it, you won’t be disappointed….
Who knew it was so easy to make your own brown sugar! All it takes is regular sugar and blackstrap molasses, and a strong hand to mix it together (or a hand mixer if you have one). I’ve included a couple recipes below depending on how dark you want the finished product to be.
Light Brown Sugar
Dark Brown Sugar
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons molasses
That’s it, easy as pie. It tastes so fresh and doesn’t really get hard at all. It also adds a rich flavor to coffee. I prefer to make my own and will not go back to buying store bought brown sugar!
