Toasted Almond and Honey Overnight Oats

Toasted Almond and Honey Overnight OatsThis post is sponsored by Almond Breeze Almondmilk. I've had so much fun showcasing some of the great products from Blue Diamond for you guys this week! In case you missed it, I used their crunchy, flavorful Nut Thins to dip some Salmon Spinach Artichoke Dip. And tossed in some of their oven roasted almonds into Salted Almond and Dark Chocolate Ice Cream. And now, we're going to end this Blue Diamond takeover with one of their newest products on the. . .

Salted Almond and Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

Salted Almond and Dark Chocolate Ice CreamThis post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. Now that Memorial Day is over and done with (I hope you had an excellent holiday weekend!), we can officially whip out the ice cream recipes, right? I love, love, love making homemade ice cream! There are very few unitaskers that I keep in my kitchen, but my single purpose ice cream maker will always have a spot in my cabinet. Making ice cream at home is tons of fun, super tasty,. . .

In the Chicken Coop

ChickensI caught you guys up on the happenings out in our garden last week, and this week, it's time to update you on our other big Springtime project—the chickens! If you missed it, back in early April, we got a dozen chicks (supposedly all hens, but that ain't the case, as you'll learn in a moment) on a whim. We didn't have a brooder, we didn't have a coop, but we did have a passion for taking care of our. . .

Grilled Veggie and Pesto Flatbread

Grilled Veggie and Pesto FlatbreadsIf you walk into our house on any given Friday evening in the summer, you'll find us eating these flatbreads. They are, without a doubt, my favorite summer meal. They aren't the simplest of meals to put together (there are, admittedly, a lot of moving parts), but the flavor that comes together in the end is worth all the chopping, roasting, and grilling. If I had to pick what my last meal would be, it would be one of these. . .

In the Garden

Garden BasketWow. I can't believe it's been almost two months since I last gave you guys a garden update. A lot has changed since March out in our growing space, so let me give you a little run down of what's up. When we left off last time, I told you we had just planted all of our Spring crops. Most of them are doing wonderfully, and we've been harvesting asparagus, spinach, kale, lettuce, green onions, kohlrabi, and broccoli for a few. . .

Roasted Asparagus Hoagies

Roasted Asparagus HoagiesWell this is a weird little recipe, now isn't it? I blame it on the asparagus explosion that is happening in our garden right now. I love asparagus season—LOVE—but like every other veggie in a garden, there comes a time where you have more of it than you know what to do with, so you start to do crazy things like make asparagus hoagies. We've eaten our weight in roasted asparagus, asparagus frittatas, and asparagus fettuccine, and it was time. . .

How We Made $1549 in One Weekend (AKA: My Awesome Yard Sale Tips!)

Yard Sale SignsLast weekend, my sister, my parents, and I held a two-day yard sale. It was a ton of work getting ready for it, but, in the end, it was totally worth all the sorting, pricing, and organizing, because we collectively made $1549 over the course of 10 hours (on two different days). We had almost nothing left at the end of the sale, and we all managed to clear a whole bunch of junk out of our houses. It was. . .
