Must Have Baby Items These last couple weeks I have been organizing, going through old clothes, and things we no longer use or need. When I made it to my son’s nursery I realized there were so many things that we never used, and never needed. I thought to myself what a waste! Because of this, I decided I would list some of the things that I have found the most useful for past nine months (time is flying!!) Being pregnant for the first time and preparing for a tiny little human is so fun, but you are also just guessing your way through the wholeRead More →

Baby’s First Books When I was pregnant the last thing I thought about was buying baby books. Honestly it just never came to my mind, and I’m not sure how that happened (pregnancy brain perhaps?). I had a total of three books before my son arrived. Yes, only THREE! Two were given to us and one we bought ourselves. It wasn’t until right after my son was born that we were gifted a lot of books, and that’s when I realized we had forgotten to buy baby books!   I have always loved children’s books. I had hundreds of books growing up. And of course, IRead More →

Spaetzle Spaetzle… I had no idea what Spaetzle was until about four years ago, once again one of my husband’s family recipes.  Wondering what Spaetzle is… I actually did a little research out of curiosity. Spaetzle originates from Germany more specifically, South Germany and is considered a small dumpling. The word Spaetzle translates to “little sparrow”. Interesting right?  There is actually a lot of cool information on the background of Spaetzle.. different ways to make it, different names, etc. It varies depending on which area of Germany you get your recipe from. Spaetzle was popular in the poor areas of South Germany because the ingredientsRead More →

My Most Used Baby Item As a mom, I always find myself looking for ways to occupy my son so I can get a few things done. As I’ve learned babies get bored of the same things pretty fast. That go-to toy will soon be less than interesting to your baby. I believe that baby toys and gadgets are made just for the sanity of the parents. They are made to bring some ease to our lives and entertain our children for just a few minutes so our arms don’t break off from lifting and carrying a baby all day long. (My baby is heavy!!!) ParentsRead More →

Cheesecake Pops This post may contain affiliate links. I’m sure everyone has heard of cake pops right?! Well, cheesecake pops are WAY better.

I found this cheesecake at Sams Club, in my opinion, these exact miniature cheesecakes are the key to this recipe. They’re aRead More →

This Post Contains Affiliate Links Schaum Torte Today I am sharing an absolutely delicious dessert, SCHAUM TORTE! A perfect dessert for any occasion. Over Christmas, I was introduced to Schaum Torte by my mother-in-law. I also learned that it is a very loved dessert on my husband’s side of the family. But as for me, I had never heard of Schaum Torte until Christmas. When I first saw the Schum Tortes I had no idea what to expect. They looked and felt hard on the outside, but were also very fragile.  However, they were delicious and I love them! It’s hard to describe what SchaumRead More →
