Garden Lites Gluten Free Muffin Review

Garden Lites Muffins #Gltuenfree

Ryan and I have baked, purchased and eaten a lot of muffins in the last few years. Each muffin was gluten free. Some were delicious. Some were dry and crumbly. Dry and crumbly is the fate of many gluten free baked goods but it is certainly NOT the fate of Garden Lites Muffins.

KC Masterpiece BBQ Baked Beans Recipe

This post is sponsored by DataRank and KC Masterpiece. All thoughts, opinions and recipes are my own.


Summer has FINALLY come to South Dakota! We had temps in the 90's this week. This is my favorite time of year (except for the intense heat). I love having warm weather because that means it's time to barbecue! Now, I don't want to slave in the kitchen or over a hot grill all day, so I try to come up with recipes that taste great but don't require a lot of prep time.

Beef Bourguinon a la Hassan Recipe


Emotional Blackmail

Click on the image to enlarge

At 4:53 AM someone left this anonymous message for me using the contact form on my site. If you have been following my blog for a while then you already know that my oldest daughter was molested by my ex-husband. I posted about it for the Brave Woman Campaign.

I don't know who this anonymous poster is but I do have their IP address and if the emotional blackmail continues then I will be contacting the police. We live in a wonderful technological world where anonymous no longer is.

Anyone that really knows me knows that I was not complicit in the molestation of my daughter. Anyone that really knows me knows that I suffered extreme emotional pain upon finding out who my daughter's molester was. Anyone who really knows me knows that I still experience great emotional pain from this.

To my emotional blackmailer: BRING IT ON!

The Never Ending Conversation

The Never ending Conversation

That's us! One big happy family. Me and my three. I don't remember the exact date when we began discussing sex and body parts. I do remember that it began with a book called Where Did I Come From?. We read that book every night for years! My children were fascinated with their bodies and wanted to know all they could about them.
