When I was pregnant with my first son, Braden I craved chicken parmigiana like crazy, and practically lived on it, then after I had him, I just didn’t want to eat it anymore. Then the other day we went to Spokane for the day with some friends and ate out at this awesome little Italian restaurant called the tomato place, and after ordering it for the first time in probably three years, I fell in love with it all over again! I knew I had to learn how to make it, because it’s something my little kiddos would love too! I found this recipe from the Pioneer Woman which is excellent, but if anyone out there knows how to get their hands on the Olive garden recipe–it’s my all time fave!

A little while ago I saw the cutest Easter Burlap wreath on pinterest, and decided I wanted to have a go at making one too. It looked really simple and fun–and since i’m in the process of re-designing my Blog right now in my evenings–that’s exactly what I needed! I haven’t decorated a whole lot for Easter, but I can handle a quick, easy & cute easter craft!

I have tried making pad thai a couple of different times now. The first time I followed a recipe by Tyler Florence. Every recipe I have ever tried of his has been to die for delicious, so I had some pretty high expectations–but sadly they weren’t met here. I don’t think it’s anything to do with his recipe, but rather how I “followed” it. I substituted a couple of ingredients, including the Tamarind paste for worcestershire sauce– because I just couldn’t seem to find it anywhere!
