We spent a whole week camping at Lake Tahoe with my family!! They had some huge pinecones there, so I had to include them in one of our pictures. We had a great time sailing, hiking, cooking and just hanging out.

Halloween 2010

 Brady was a shark, Ty was a dragon for the second year in a row (I wasn't going to argue with him when he said he wanted to be a dragon again..) Jared was a baseball player and I was a Hun princess. 
 I made the traditional dinner in a pumpkin and for breakfast we had pumpkin pancakes and green eggs. 
Thanks to my mother in law for making Brady's cool shark costume.  She totally saved me.  Brady kept telling me he wanted to be a shark, but I had no idea how to pull it off..

Our cool neighbors came over to show off their awesome costumes.  Oh and my mom was a nurse (it seemed convenient since she was on call anyways.)

I hope everyone had a great Halloween!!

Gluten free, egg free, dairy free birthday extravaganza! (also coconut and soy free..)

So today was my mom's birthday and I will take any excuse to have a party, but there was just one tiny problem...my mom is allergic to eggs, wheat, and dairy.  So much for a birthday cake--right?  Wrong!  Thanks to my sister Jen for creating this recipe.  Because of her skills,  I was able to create a tasty birthday treat.  .

Step one--the cake.  This consisted of gluten free flour, maple syrup, cocoa, oil, baking soda, baking powder, salt, hemp milk, and lemon juice.

Step two:  The rasberry sauce which consisted of fresh rasberries, water, sugar and lemon juice.

  Step three:  the chocolate sauce.


And that's how its done.  Surprisingly enough, it even tasted pretty good.  My mom said she would prefer it over a regular chocolate cake.  So there is a lesson to be learned here...never never NEVER say never. 

Happy Birthday Mom!!!  You're awesome!
