Hidden Lake Overlook

The trail for Hidden Lake Overlook starts near the visitor center at Logan's Pass in Glacier National Park. We've hiked this in everything from snow shoes (in June) to toe shoes (in August) depending on the month. The trail is only 2.7 miles round trip, and the elevation gain is 540 feet, making it one of the easier hikes in ...

Sesame Noodles with Fresh Vegetables

I love Sesame Noodles in the summer! A tangle of noodles and vegetables coated in a nutty sauce with hints of garlic and ginger, all topped with fresh cilantro and green onions. This isn’t entirely authentic, but I love adding fresh vegetable and herbs to my Sesame Noodles. Not only does it make a well rounded meal out of them, …

Mexican Broccoli Salad

I made Healthy Broccoli Salad a few weeks ago, and loved it so much that I've started making variations! Mexican Broccoli Salad is the first and there will be a Curried Mango one to come later on this summer! I have to admit that I'm partial to this salad, but that might be due to the fact that I love ...

Lupine Lake

Lupine is a great half-day hike, especially early in the hiking season or in the late fall when the mountains are already snowed in. At the beginning of summer, you’ll find the trail surrounded in beautiful purple Lupine flower. In the fall, the Larch trees turn brilliant gold and there’s often a fresh snow fall making the scenery even more …

Nutella Pudding

I love Nutella (who doesn’t), so I’ve been developing all kinds of delicious ways to satisfy my cravings. A spoonful of Nutella is one of my favorite snacks, I mean… desserts. I don’t know about you, but I can’t get away with eating very much sugar – even organic sugar. So, I’ve been working on my favorite flavors without refined …

DIY Sequin Vase

A couple of months ago, I decided to sew some sequins on one of my t-shirts. I went so far as to buy sequins, but… I never quite got around to it. So, when I saw a tutorial for a sequin vase from it all started with paint, I knew I had to give it a try. It’s much more …

Bacon Guacamole

We like to make many variations of guacamole, but Bacon Guacamole is definitely our favorite! I maintain that there's pretty much nothing that bacon can't improve. While that might be a slight over exaggeration, the flavors of bacon seems to match my every craving. There's nothing quite like that sweet-salty flavor. I love the smokiness of bacon paired with the buttery ...

Danny On Trail – Big Mountain

The Danny On Trail winds it’s way up Big Mountain, now known as Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort. The main trail is 3.8 miles to the top, gaining 2,434 feet. At the top, you can see into Glacier National Park and across the whole valley to Flathead Lake. This trail is beautiful by early July with the hillsides covered in wildflowers. …

Chipotle Chicken Caesar Salad

Chipotle Caesar Salad is the spicy cousin to the classic version. It’s an utterly delicious change of pace from the normal. You can make it as mild or spicy as you would like. I wrote the recipe for a mild amount of spice, but I like as much heat as possible for more chipotle flavor. We’re a little addicted to …
