6 Spreads That Will Elevate Your Sandwich Game!

Do you know what I consider to be a crime? Serving a sandwich without a good spread!  There's nothing worse than biting into a beautiful sandwich, only to realize that it's as dry as the Gobi Desert because SOMEONE neglected to put a spread on it! I've had this happen far too often when dining out.

Just say no to dry sandwiches!

Overnight French Bread + A Care Package with Bob's Red Mill

Overnight French Bread
There's just something about bringing a care package to a loved one that makes you feel happy. The knowledge that you've made someone's evening that much easier is so satisfying. So when Bob's Red Mill gave me the challenge to create a gift basket for someone special, of course I jumped at the idea!

I decided to make a spaghetti dinner care package for my little sister. Not only does she take care of her little girl (who's not quite a year old) all day long, she also volunteers at a local pregnancy care center once a week. As anyone that has ever cared for a baby knows, just existing is a full-time job! She definitely deserves a break from cooking supper.

A delicious, fresh-from-the-oven treat is the perfect addition to a gift basket. One of the most enduring ways to show that you care about someone is to bake something special for them. Baking requires time, skill and love. It's a way of saying, "I appreciate you enough to give of my energy," without uttering a word.

But let's get into the knitty-gritty of how I put this basket together...

What I Ate Wednesday
Hey friends! Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday, where I show you everything I ate on a Wednesday!

This week I decided to include a little more of our life in the video at the end of this post, so it's kind of like my first ever vlog! I hope you enjoy getting a little peek into our day. :)


Lemon Curd Ripple Ice Cream + Summer Fun

If you're going to make one dessert to celebrate the last days of summer, let it be this Lemon Curd Ice Cream. Even if you're a lemon skeptic, please give it a try. It's so rich and creamy and tangy and flavorful. 



Reuben is in love with this ice cream. I think he was pretty happy that I had to test the recipe several times to get it just right.

To make it even better, this has a no-cook ice cream base - less time in the kitchen! AND there's a no-churn option if you don't happen to own an ice cream maker.

Head over to The Pioneer Woman's blog to grab the recipe for this Lemon Curd Ripple Ice Cream!


Now I'd like to share some of the summer fun we've been having:
