5 Great Snacks for Your Super Bowl Party

Today I’m sharing 5 Great Snacks for Your Super Bowl Party. These are oldies but goodies, and I’m sure you’ll find something here to try and impress your guests! We were very disappointed that our Minnesota Vikings are NOT in the Super Bowl here in Minnesota this year, but it was fun to see them in the playoffs. It was a great year anyway and fun to watch. Enjoy the game and your party!

7 of My Favorite Scandinavian Christmas Recipes

Today we’re exploring 7 of My Favorite Scandinavian Christmas Recipes. These particular recipes are ones that I’ve been eating, enjoying, and making my whole life. Grandma was great about making sure we would love all of those heritage recipes as much as she and her family had. These are a wonderful tradition to hand down as each generation comes along. I LOVE that my kids enjoy all of these recipes and are experts at making them, too!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you amazing mothers and grandmothers out there!

I just had to share this photo of my mom with me and my sister, and we’re all wearing the matching and very festive bright green polka dot mother/daughter dresses that mom made for us! This was about 1970, and it looks like it!!!

Enjoy your special day, all you moms and grandmoms, and thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate each and every one of you and all of your support!

Thank you!

Lemons, Lemons, and More Lemons

My daughter recently traveled to California to visit her college roommate in San Francisco and brought home a whole suitcase full of lemons. Just look at these gorgeous little beauties!!

They picked the lemons off of the lemon tree growing in her friend’s backyard. My daughter loves lemons and she gave them to me with the instructions that I should make some lemon specific recipes for the blog. Can do! Grandma and her sisters were great lemon lovers, and there is no shortage of lemon recipes. We’re experiencing a bit of the winter blahs here in Minnesota (which usually happens this time of the year), so for the next few weeks, I’m going to make some uplifting and refreshing lemon recipes to perk up the winter and bring in a little sunshine. But first, just for today, I’ll share some favorite lemon past post recipes. So since it’s citrus season, and my countertop is full of Lemons, Lemons, and More Lemons, let’s get going and let the sun shine in!
