Overnight Oatmeal Parfait

Did anyone get outside to enjoy the 60+ degree weather today? I wish I could of gotten a run in outside, but my timing didn’t work out with the rain so I was stuck on the treadmill. However, I have a great oatmeal dish for those warms days you don’t want to eat hot oatmeal, […]


Hope everyone had a great weekend! We had a wide open weekend (rare thing) so Saturday we decided to do fondue. We did the whole process from starting with the cheese to the main course of veggies and meats and ended with the chocolate. Since we had three courses of food to enjoy we decided […]
