Fresh baked bread is a magical thing. But baking it at home without a bread machine can be a long process that is rarely compatible with a full-time job. I’ve adapted Michael Smith’s Country Bread recipe to keep my family of four in bread all week. I increased amounts to produce two loaves, eliminated the kneading, and minimized the number of tools so there is less washing up. If you can spare 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening this one might turn you into a bread maker, too.

I love Lego. Simple or complex, fun, creative, timeless. So when my son asked for a Lego-themed party for his 5th birthday I was as stoked as he was. I wanted to keep the get-together small with 5 friends invited so we could invite a Lego Master builder and do something really special and intimate. Did I mention I loooooove Lego?

If you’re anything like me, you “accidentally” bought too much Halloween candy and still have loads leftover. And while I know the last thing on your mind is even more sweets, this leftover Halloween candy bark makes a great host/hostess gift as we get into entertaining season.
