It’s been about 3 months since my parents permanently moved up north, and I decided it was high time to visit them. One of the shared interests we have is food, and so they took me to Traverse City where they had discovered a cute, little restaurant – The Cooks’ House. The restaurant is basically […]Read more "Visiting the Parents"
Do I start with the title of the post? Or do I start with what happened chronologically? I think it probably makes sense to talk about Valentine’s first. For the last 7 years, John unintentionally started a tradition of eating at Buffalo Wild Wings on Valentine’s day. The first year we did it, it was […]Read more "Valentine’s Week"

I guess I did the same thing earlier in the week because….KINGDOM HEARTS 3 DROPPED!~ More on that in another post maybe, suffice to say […]Read more "Happy Lunar New Year: Year of the Pig!"

Since then I’ve slowly tried to improve my grilling skills and grilling recipes. The BBQ was so much fun that time, that […]Read more "Annual BBQ 2018"
This Memorial Day weekend has been hot. We met a lot of record setting temperatures, though we did not set any. Despite the heat, Saturday was overcast and was definitely tolerable. My godsister, godmother, and godbrother came into town for memorial day weekend to see my parents (and me too i think…). God-sister came in […]Read more "BBQs and Ropes"
