Butternut Risotto

This Butternut Risotto is an all vegetable dish, no rice, prepared “risotto style”. Don’t worry we will do traditional risotto another time. We usually enjoy this risotto as a vegetarian dinner with a salad. We have also served it as a side dish, (side note: butternut squash pairs well with steak).

Lake McDonald in the Winter

Today’s adventure is more of a photo kind of adventure. I hope you enjoy the beauties of Glacier National Park in the winter.

Easiest Sugar Scrub

This truly is the easiest sugar scrub, it is just two ingredients. You can add essential oils for scent but it smells delicious on its own. The sweet coconut smell makes me think of the tropics.

Mexican Sweet Potato Skins

These Mexican Sweet Potato Skins are just so delicious, not to mention pretty healthy as well. There is just a little cheese on top and the rest of dinner is vegetables. When you are eating these, you are not thinking healthy, you’re just thinking cheesy mexican goodness.

Crock-pot Pork Roast with Rosemary

You can’t beat coming home on a cold winters’ day and being enveloped by the smell of rosemary and pork. This recipe is really fast and the house smell delicious when something has been braising all day. All the better if there is almost no work involved, especially on those exceptionally long days when you just want to get home and relax.

Glacier National Park in the Holidays

It was a dark cloudy day on Sperry trail. The cedars were dusted with fresh snow fall and looking like a holiday card. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the holidays than to be tromping through the snow in the crisp mountain air.

Candle Centerpiece

This centerpiece came about entirely by accident. I am not the most organized when we entertain, my whole focus revolves around the food, and more often than not I can’t seem to remember to put napkins on the table.

Raspberry Rolls with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

It’s Tyler’s birthday this week and Raspberry Rolls are his choice for breakfast. Raspberry anything is a favorite around here, especially in the winter. The berries freeze so well and taste like summer in January.
