Welcome back. Did you have a good weekend? ‘Tis the season for moving house, isn’t it? Not only are some of our friends catching the moving bug, but we’ve certainly caught it as well. Adam and I just moved into a new home over the past week and we’re finally getting settled. We’re still in the same town and very much Minnesota bound.

This month we’ll be married 7 years and will have moved 6 times. Most of the previous moves (including this one) were pretty spontaneous and spur of the moment decisions. I guess we like to switch things up and explore new neighborhoods.

Right before we were able to move into our new house, we actually helped some dear friends move theirs first. So yeah, we’ve been pretty busy and I have had my fair share of packing and hauling boxes already. Whilst we were helping our friends, one of their old neighbors offered to provide us with lunch. How sweet is that? She had a delicious meal prepared for all of us, including carrot cake. It reminded me how much I love it and that I don’t make it nearly enough.

Carrot Cake also happens to be a great dessert to serve when the temperatures rise and you’re not in the mood for something too filling and heavy. Light, moist and simply fantastic. [Read more…]

Spiced Crumb Bars

Monday Morning is here to welcome you with a sweet start to your week. I sure hope you had a wonderful weekend! We spent the last couple of days studying and getting caught up on housework. My husband was frequently found with his head buried in textbooks – preparing for the second out of three exams he has to take for his job this morning. I know you will do great, honey! While he was busy I was able to catch up on chores and fun projects. Sunday morning was filled with a family photo shoot of dear friends of ours . Fall is in full swing and we had to take advantage of its beauty. A Green Bay Packer win and a birthday party was the perfect way to end our days off. In hopes of sweetening the beginning of another week, I decided to make some scrumptiously Spiced Crumb Bars. I adore any dessert that’s topped with a crunchy and buttery topping. There’s just something about melting two layers of different textures together and enjoying both of them in one bite. Moist bars and crispy yumminess make a perfect team! [Read more…]
