Birthday parties, sleepovers, and homemade strawberry jam

It has been way too long since my last blog post!  It seems like life has kept me very busy! I would like to first share some very exciting news!  Many of you know that my 15 year old nephew was diagnosed a little over a year and a half ago with a cancerous brain tumor.  He has endured so much in the last year and a half, but last night my family and I celebrated...

Barbecue Chicken Pizza

I have a love hate relationship with pizza.  I LOVE to eat lots of pizza but I hate that my thighs are starting to tell others that I eat too much pizza!  I started experimenting with pizza recipes several months ago.  I came across one from Tosca Reno that my husband and I really enjoyed.  The only problem was that it was kind of time consuming.  The last...
