Brown Rice Salad with Seared Tuna

The weather is finally starting to warm up around here {I know you are glad because I will finally stop complaining} and that means it is salad season.  I’m not quite ready to dive into light, lettuce based salads but I have been eating more cool dishes like this brown rice salad with seared tuna.

Sleepover Planning: The Perfect Snack

Collective Bias Disclosure

Six years old are funny.  They start to get all kinds of personality and have very specific ways they want things done. A few friends are planning a sleepover for one night of our upcoming spring break from school and I am getting “schooled” on good ideas for snacks.  Of course there will be the typical snacks of popcorn, cookies and candy.  But, I want to make sure there are a few wholesome snacks too that incorporate fruits or vegetables.  So, I did a few taste tests with her and we created what she called “the perfect snack.”

Easter Ribbon Wreath

Our front door is usually the first place you catch a glimpse of an upcoming holiday or new season.  So far this year, I have been a little slow to get a new wreath up.  My goal for Easter was to get a new wreath up before April 1st and I just barely made that goal.  My Easter ribbon wreath was finished on March 31st and I put it out on the morning of the 1st. Score!

30 Spring Craft Ideas

Spring officially sprung back in March.  But, with almost a foot of snow on the ground and super cold temperatures, it was hard to really welcome spring in at the time.  Mother nature is funny that way I guess.  Of course, that didn’t keep from cruising Pinterest and day dreaming about warmer temperatures and bright spring colors.  I found so many great ideas that I decided to make a collection of 30 spring craft ideas so that you can be inspired too.

Shannah’s Test Kitchen: Crockpot Beef Bourguignon

Awhile back, I was cruising the internet searching for recipes for my monthly meal swap.  I needed something fairly easy to multiply since I was making 5 batches but that was delicious too.  I picked a recipe from a very well known blog and bought all of the ingredients to make it.  Long story short…it was a flop.  There was absolutely no way the recipe would work as written and I spent over an hour trying to figure out  a way to make things work. That experience had me wondering if anyone had ever had those problems with one of my MY recipes and it turned out that I wasn’t along.  So, I reached out to a few other bloggers to create a fun new series called Shannah’s Test Kitchen.

Spring Oreo Truffles

It is official. Spring is here!  Well, unless you count the 5 inches of snow we got yesterday.  Then, it looks like Spring is farther away than ever.  To make myself feel better about this ridiculous weather, I decided to dive into pastel colors head first and make spring Oreo truffles!
