Halloween Punch

Can it really be October tomorrow? Really?! For anyone outside of AZ, I know you’re probably already experiencing the beautiful change of colors that Fall brings.

Crock Pot Creamy Chicken Stew

Hey guys! When temperatures get in the 80’s we’re in full fledged winter gear here in AZ. My kids think they need to wear their jackets when it barely cools down and I often find them bundled in blankets when it’s 70 degrees. Fortunately, I think those temps are right around the corner and it […]

Tomato Tortellini Soup

As a child, one of the things I hated most was tomatoes. I never really understood why because I LOVED ketchup, but I’m happy to report I’ve grown out of this and currently love tomatoes. In fact, I’m realizing now just how much flavor I was missing out on as a kid because I love […]
