We went backpacking a few weekends ago. My pack was bigger than I am and I was exhausted by the end of it.

Chris pushed me out of my comfort zone with this adventure and I thanked him. While it was a little rough climbing at that altitude with no cardio training, I don’t regret it. Thank goodness for barre classes that build up my muscles!

For Mother’s Day weekend, although I wasn’t able to be with my Momma, I know she would have loved these tasty wraps. The smokey roasted turkey, and the sweet and tangy spiced apple butter spread remind me a little bit like the holidays and cooking in the kitchen together. The creamy brie and the crisp apple are the perfect fillings.

Asian Pulled Pork Sliders with Slaw_LYK4

These past couple of days I was up in Mammoth with my man and his family. While we didn’t get much relaxation time, we sure did get in a ton of mountain time, snowboarding some really amazing snow, on brisk but glorious sunny days. It was just the most beautiful setting to romp around in, apart from work and out of the kitchen for a hot sec.
