Schools over, “end of the year” items are wrapped up, summer is here!  I love the freedom summer brings.  I feel free to embrace and enjoy life is a totally different way during the summer, it is refreshing.

I have happily spent a lot of time in the kitchen over the last few days.  I feel so grounded when I am cooking, my anxiety melts away and I just get in the zone!  I blessed my husband with Father’s Day food yesterday and now I am prepping for my summer job, cooking for a Cowgirl/Cowboy camp my kids are attending.  I am excited to provide the camp with food, but boy it’s a lot of work!  My kids are so excited that I am “participating” in camp this year, we are going to have fun.

So what have I been making?  I thought you’d never ask!

Dark Chocolate Chip Almond Shortbread Cookies for one of our Father’s Day desserts.  These are AMAZING!  A must try for sure.



Whole Wheat Banana Muffins These are a staple in my house!



Sloppy Joes I made a quadruple batch for horse camp!



Playdate Mac ‘n Cheese I made a quadruple batch of this too!



Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies (but I left out the cocoa powder this time and added chocolate chips!)

cookiesTomorrow’s cooking project: Soft and Simple Pretzel dough, which we will put on sticks and bake/roast over the fire at horse camp, fun!
