From Farm to Table

I've always had an interest in where my food comes from, and I think it comes from having a garden my whole life! Everywhere we lived when I was a kid, my parents put in a garden even if it was just a small patch. Once you've had fresh garden produce, it's hard to go back - nothing tastes as ...

Healthy Huckleberry Frosty

Every time the temperature shoots through the roof, I find myself making a frosty! Last summer I was all about this Strawberry Watermelon creation, but this year I can't get enough blueberries, (and now local huckleberries). This version is easier to make for year round enjoyment because it's made with frozen berries, (whereas watermelon in January just isn't quite right)! ...

Ptarmigan Tunnel

Ptamigan Tunnel has a lot going on for just one hike - you have lakes, mountain views, a glacier, and a 250' tunnel! This hike is located in the Many Glacier region of Glacier National Park, and it's one of the most popular hikes. It shares the same trailhead as Iceberg Lake for about 2.5 miles before branching off, and ...

Cherry Cheesecake Cookie Tart

This is what happens when our local Flathead cherries come into season! I've been getting 4 pounds of local cherries every week at Farmer's Market for the last 3 weeks in a row! It's not really that many cherries when you split them between 2 people, but I ate 2 pounds by myself yesterday so it it sure looks like ...

2 Ingredient Balsamic Vinaigrette

It never occurred to me to share this recipe with you before, I suppose it's because 2 ingredients hardly seems like a recipe! However, I find myself making this almost every week, and it's just too good not to share. I've had so many people tell me they don't have time to make their own salad dressing, but you can ...

The Best Vanilla Ice Cream

My favorite ice cream is vanilla, people tell me this is a boring choice - but, I mean... it goes with everything! It's not that I don't love cookies 'n' cream, salted caramel, raspberry sherbet - you name it - I'm eating it (ice cream love runs in our family genes)! But vanilla really has my heart with it's simple ...

Iceberg Lake in Glacier National Park

It never surprises me to hear Iceberg Lake is someone's favorite hike. It's definitely one of the most stunning hikes in Glacier National Park! The glacial colored lake sits in an enormous mountain cirque. It's actually so big, you almost can't capture it. We decided to combine hiking Iceberg Lake and Ptarmigan Tunnel because they share the same trailhead, and ...

Banh Mi Salad Bowls with Sriracha Lime Aioli

Next to pizza, Banh Mi are my ultimate weakness (I've been know to eat 2-3 of these Vietnamese subs in a single day)! Specifically Sate Chicken Banh Mi, and my order is always the same - I'm all for branching out, but you just don't mess with perfection! There is a single sandwich of course that is the source of ...

Peanut Butter Cookie Energy Bars

Once in a while we find a favorite that we’re both absolutely crazy about! It started with some store bought Peanut Butter Cookie bars for our backpacks.
