Fathers Day 2009

Father's Day was exciting this year! It was so fun to celebrate our dads who we love dearly and also got to celebrate Chris! My poor husband was sick all weekend and wasn't feeling too hot on Father's Day but we made the best of it. We started our morning out at church which was great and then spent the afternoon at my parents house. Had a great lunch, laid by the pool and swam, had a yummy BBQ dinner and celebrated with some fun gifts. My family is all about celebrating and presents. All the men were spoiled, they are the best. Chris raked in the gifts...My parents got him all sorts of cute bibs and onzies (or should I say, got Kate all sorts of gifts!) and cigars (those are for dad!) and I surprised him with the most adorable "toy". We found it at FAO Schwartz when we were in Vegas a couple months ago and Chris fell in love with it. We didn't get it because it was a little pricey and to make a long story short I had a friend pick it up for me when they went to Vegas and it was a great surprise yesterday. It melts my heart how much he loves this thing. It's a Noah's Ark plush toy for Kate. So cute. Only the best for my man and baby! We spent the evening at the Andrews house to celebrate dad Andrews and had yummy desserts. It was such a great day! We are so thankful for the dads that the Lord has blessed us with. They are the best of the best and such great role models. Chris is going to be an amazing father, he can hardly wait to hold his peanut. We're counting down the days!

Goodie Girl Cookie Pop Tarts

Summer is in full swing and Kate and I have a super fun, easy and delicious breakfast or even dessert idea for you to make!  First things first, go find some Goodie Girl Birthday Cake and Magical Animal cookies. They’re gluten free and to die for.  You can make this recipe gluten free by replacing the All Purpose Flour with Gluten Free Flour. Or if you want to skip the homemade dough all together you can use pie crust in the refrigerated section at the grocery store! 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

Recipe for the best ribs ever.

You can imagine my excitement when I discovered Gordon Food Service. I used to pass by it weekly and wonder what the heck was in there. Do yourself a favor and look them up ASAP and see if there is one close to you. I am a fan for life!



As a busy mom who loves to cook and make delicious meals but also needs to stay on budget, I can do it all with Gordon’s Food Service!
If you have a big family or throw parties, this is the place to shop. 
We just did an end of summer party and I bought everything here. The meat selection in fresh and frozen is wonderful. 


And you see those peanut butter krispies?  To die for!  In the frozen section. Thank me later. 



You know our deep love for ribs.  Chris does them like no other.  So I thought I’d finally share our recipe. 
All of our items are from Gordon’s Food Service Store.  (Recipe will be posted below)

Ribs are prepped for the oven. 


After 4+ hours in the oven the ribs go on the grill. Toss on a little extra seasoning and sauce for this part.
