Yogurt Parfait with Barlean's Orange Cream #springsweetsweek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek.  I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in  the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes.  All opinions are mine alone. Today I am featuring Barlean's Orange Cream and Barlean's Energy Blend in my recipe. Barlean's is one of my favorite products because I love the taste of their products.  No matter what I buy, I am eager to consume it! I love this yogurt parfait because it feels like dessert but is really meant for breakfast. It has a sweet taste but is actually low in sugar! This is so easy and takes no extra equipment to make it, and can be made the night before, too!

Young Asparagus with Lemon Dipping Sauce

Asparagus is one of the earliest vegetables to come to us in the spring, so I knew I had to add this to our list of spring side dishes. Welcome to Our Dinner Table, hosted by Christie Campbell of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures. This dish requires young asparagus, about the thickness of a pencil. You eat this with your fingers so those young stalks disappear in one or two bites.  Dipped into the lemon sauce, you can't stop yourself!  Perfect for a patio snack during these cooler spring days! One day I am going to start my own asparagus bed.  I have tried in the past, but I haven't really educated myself on what to do to be successful.  Any tips out there?  Pass them on.  Bucket List! Yield: 32 Author: Terri Steffes Print Recipe With Image Without Image Young Asparagus with Lemon Dipping Sauce Fresh and lemony dipping sauce for blanched asparagus prep time: 10 mins cook time: 30 mins total time: 40 mins ingredients: 1/2 c mayo 1 T fresh lemon juice 1 T white wine vine

Almost Home #ourgoodlifebooklist

I am so eager to share with you this book that I read over vacation last week called Almost Home by Valerie Fraser Luesse. I read Missing Isaac last year, so I was excited to see that this author had written a second book.  Maybe it was the region I was in (Sedona) but this book had a mystical quality I haven't heard any other reviewer comment on.  I think that the second story in the book is what gave me that feeling, a little bit like you feel when you feel another "presence" in the room. I highly recommend this novel, so if you are the sort of person who thinks all book reviews should be scathing remarks about the author's craft, you might want to move along to the next blog.  This book made me smile from the beginning to the end.   This adorable story is set in the 1940s, on a loop of road in Alabama. For those of you who know me well, you know that Bob's family lived on a loop in the middle of nowhere, Missouri.  I instantly felt at home and under

Preparing for Selling Your Home

Image Credit When it comes to getting ready to sell your house, it seems like there are a million things to take care of and organize before you can even think about moving to your new place, but as long as you have a plan and are able to stick to that plan, then you can make the process a great deal easier on yourself than it would have been otherwise, so in this post we’re going to share with you some tips on how to prepare your house for selling.  My husband and I have sold four homes over the course of our marriage, and we have found that these tips really work! Fix up any loose ends: Before people sell their house, they’re typically trying to focus on all the bigger things that need to get done, and while that’s also a good idea, the things that people are actually going to notice when they come to view the place and when they move in are really the small details. So if you’ve been putting off certain repairs or things that need to be done in the house, such as fixing th

Quick Asparagus Pizza

Welcome to the March Fantastical Food Fight sponsored by Sarah Ellis.  We are so happy to have such a wonderful and organized host for our monthly party!  This month we are sharing with you all things asparagus.  Soon you will be seeing asparagus shoots coming up and it will be time to starting eating these early spring treats. I am sharing my Quick Asparagus Pizza that can be used as a lovely dinner or as an appetizer when shared. It is so easy and so delicious that my family can have it any time they wish.  We keep blanched asparagus in our refrigerator which speeds up the process as well. Storing blanched asparagus is easy.  Drain on paper towels, then using dry paper towels, wrap the asparagus and place in a zip-style storage bag.  Lasts about 3 days.
