Wa? Lawn Care

The boys started their own business over Spring Break. It's called Wa? Lawn Care. But seriously, don't hire these guys. I've tried to hire them a thousand times to get yard work done at our house and they rarely show, are easily distracted, and leave the work undone. If … more

Let's Get Dirty

I give up

Every year, I vow that I won’t be suckered into attempting to grow lettuce, regardless of the descriptions on the seed packets or catalogs or the tips that someone shares with me. In the 14 or so years that I’ve been gardening in the Grand Valley, I’ve been able to grow … more

5 tips for avoiding food waste plus what to do with stale cookies

Breakfast for Dinner

Josh Groban vs. Elvis Presley? Yes.

It seems only fair that after a month of asking you to fill out our Greatest Love Song Ever bracket, that Rachel and I post ours. As you'll notice, we have pretty different tastes in music. I'm not sure Rachel had heard of Josh Groban before she met me. If she had, she … more

Getting Fat

  I've wanted to give fatbiking or snowbiking a shot for a while but last winter we had such good snow conditions the skis always took priority. After all, when you get back to back powder days all winter long, it would be rude not to take advantage of it. This year is a whole … more
