Easy Homemade Dinner Rolls


When I make soups for dinners, I love serving rolls or bread it with. But I don't typically have rolls in the house - unless I have planned to do soup. So when I decided to make beef barley soup last week, I needed rolls, and didn't have any.. so I made some! I have always been nervous about baking bread, but this was so easy, and so freaking delicious! Note that there is rising times in this recipe. Allow at least 3 hours to make these. I said they were easy, not that they were quick! What you will need: 1 Tbsp.

Combine the dry ingredients, and wet ingredients to the … [Continue reading]

A Walk Through the Park


Last week James' Preschool went on a field trip to a local nature park. We love nature walks in this family. We really love to go to the Watershed, and Burns Bog. We had never been before, so we were all really excited. James was even more excited to see his best bud Finn! They were in the same class last year, but James now goes three days a week and Finn only two. It's ok though, these two are now in the same jiu jitsu class.. but that's another post in itself! Our guide was Amy, and she was so great with the kids! She taught them about a bog, and moss, and that, that certain type of moss was perfect for treating cuts. Even I learned something that day. They learned about bats, and cone on the cobs... it was a great learning experience for the kids, and they got to be outside. The whole nature walk was awesome. We will totally be going back there. it's not far from home, and there are hidden passage ways and what not for the boys. For Chris and I, it would be a nice outing … [Continue reading]
