Chocolate Pomegranate Ice CreamWith all this sweltering weather, I thought I'd make some ice cream. Because ice cream can solve all your problems. Sometimes. I remembered I had some pomegranate in the freezer, and everything's better with chocolate, and so, we have chocolate pomegranate ice cream! It's a super easy recipe with just four ingredients. The only slightly complicated part was melting the chocolate since I prefer the smaller pieces of chocolate you can get if you add [click to continue...]

Five Friday Finds #192Bobert turned nine months this week! That means he's been outside for almost as long as he was inside. Only almost since he decided he wanted to stay inside for 41 and a half weeks, just for fun. We looked through some of his older pictures, and it is so amazing how much he's changed!

Five Friday Finds #191This week, and especially today (I'm writing this on Thursday.) seems to be one of those weeks/days where I'm sitting around waiting for appointments or things all day.

Hope you enjoy these Five Friday Finds! And please link up your recipes below. [click to continue...]

Shrimp ScampiYou know those times when you've got to get something on the table, but you're got too much going on (or you just want a break)? Lately, I've found shrimp rescuing me. Shrimp cook so quickly and easily, you'll get this dish on the table without much time in the kitchen. (Of course you don't have to let your guests know how long it took (or didn't take). It'll be our little secret. OK?) What [click to continue...]

Five Friday Finds #190I've started taking Bobert to an infant massage class this week. I think it's a bit interesting and hilarious how dated almost all the books and handouts look (even when they're relatively recently published), but then, babies have been around a long time!
