BIG EXCITING NEWS!

BIG EXCITING NEWS!

Some of our closest friends and family have known that Sweet Gum was never intended to be our "forever home", and since moving back from Texas, it just seems...like something was off.  So, we had been keeping our eye on listings popping up, knowing we would like some land and also to stay in the [...]

Salted Nutella Fudge

Salted Nutella Fudge

This has been a family favorite during the holidays, and a persistent request from Drew during the rest of the year.  I try to save some stuff strictly for the holidays to keep the special nostalgic feel so I gently give that request a big fat DENY post/pre holiday season. I remember thinking fudge must [...]

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

So, a couple of days ago was National Homemade Cookies Day and to honor this very special day, we made our favorite GF Chocolate Chip Cookies that are, oh so very delicious!  These cookies, if you can even believe it, are even better the next day if you keep them in an airtight container.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cake

Food.  It's such an integral part of life, and royal pain in my butt sometimes.  It brings people together.  It's how we celebrate and how we mourn.  Lack of it can cause anxiety (look up H.A.L.T. fellow anxiety sufferers) or anger...I have a couple of  hangries of my own, ahem, Drew and Jessica. 🙂  But [...]

Exploring Our New Home

Exploring Our New Home

(From Jessica's point of view) Hi everyone!  As you all know we moved to Texas not to long ago.  Since we have a dog we decided to drive.  For two days we drove from 6:00 am until 12:00 am with few bathroom breaks.  The drive wasn't as bad as I thought.  We had plenty to [...]

Road Trip to Texas

Hello all!  We have survived the road trip from sunny Southern California to the unpredictable Dallas, Texas with 3 kids and a dog. That's exhausting just to write it. Haha! Actually, the drive went really well. Pebbles did wonderful and the kids were happy. I think we only had to yell at them a handful [...]
