Four Christmases

Four Christmas celebrations we had this year, each different but yet each filled with  great  food, family, laughter and love.  We are truly blessed to have such wonderful families. *beware picture overload* Starting off we headed to Houston to spend Christmas Eve at my grandmother’s house.

Granola Bars

December 29, 2009

This recipe I started making to send in DT’s lunches shortly after we were first married.  They are a great tasting, filling snack and the beauty about this recipe is that though it tastes great and is good for you, it is very versatile.  I’ve made it with chocolate chips, peanut butter, toffee bits, various […]
