Turkey Apple Brie Wrap_LYK4

For Mother’s Day weekend, although I wasn’t able to be with my Momma, I know she would have loved these tasty wraps.

Smoked Gouda & Apple Turkey Burgers (and a camping trip)

by Lauren

IMG_2290Chris and I went camping this weekend in Anza Borrego with his parents and friends. It was just one night but we managed to sneak in an awesome hike!

We saw a papa and a baby sheep roaming around. They pranced down the rocky ridge and came right towards us!IMG_2305


At the end of the trail was a gorgeous palm oasis. We sat there basking in the sun and enjoying the view.


After the strenuous hike we clearly needed burgers. … Read more...
