Caramel Rolls

have a feeling…I suspect this post may very well be my most popular. I think we all know why. Funny thing about caramel rolls – not many people in the US even know they exist. Just like, I wasn’t aware there were sweet rolls until I was in high school. As far as I know, […]


Let's Gather Together

Let's Gather Together is all about hardy, wholesome recipes for autumn and winter seasons. This e-cookbook is 94 pages of 44 of my favorite autumn soups, breads and desserts that are sure to become a staple at your dinner table.



I realize that the dessert/baked goods category of this blog has more posts than the rest. That’s no mistake. And it’s not because I have a huge sweet tooth, because I really don’t.

Cinnamon Pecan Scones

I frequently attempt to win the love and affection of family, friends, and strangers by feeding them things like boozy meatloaf, freshly baked bread, soft cookies and heavenly scones… Crossing my fingers that I’ve won a few over. I might have been born and raised in North Dakota, but my heart calls the western mountains of Wyoming home. Whether I’m sleeping under the stars by myself in the mountains, hiking with family and friends, or sitting around a crackling fire; I just can’t seem to breathe in enough nature.
