This week I have been insanely bored. I am not sure why, just having one of those weeks where I am going stir crazy for no reason…does that ever happen to you? For a couple of days I thought I was going to get to take a last minute cruise up the New England to […]Read More.
When planning my menu this week, I was looking for something fun and creative. My fun and whimsical mood prompted this fun and simple carrot pasta dish as I am in full on birthday party planning mode. I have a 4, soon to be 5 year old. I only have one and I love planning […]Read More.
