Ever since I mastered my favorite cookie dough base, I haven’t been able to stop coming up with new cookie creations. Last time I shared the decadent Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies, and this time I’m going with a classic kid favorite… Monster Cookies!

I say these are a kid favorite because of the bright colored M&M’s sprinkled throughout the dough, but let’s be honest… even the grown-ups love a good M&M cookie, right? All those pretty colors PLUS tons of peanut-buttery goodness AND chewy oats baked into these cookies… what’s not to love?

Spinach Mushroom Feta Frittata

Frittatas are a quick and easy way to eat a nutritious meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This version featuring spinach, mushrooms, and creamy feta cheese is super flavorful and can be ready in just 10 minutes.

A healthy frittata is a quick and easy meal for any time of day! Try this Spinach Mushroom Feta version from LoveGrowsWild.com

A couple months ago, I tried making my first frittata (a.k.a. the crustless quiche) when I was looking for quick dinner ideas. Depending on what add-in ingredients you use, most frittatas are ready in 10 minutes or less. TEN minutes or less… from start to finish! I can’t even cook a frozen pizza that fast. After my first frittata success, I’ve been making them left and right with all kinds of yummy add-ins, so get ready to jump on the frittata train, ya’ll… you’re going to see a lot of them here from now on!

Spring Home Tour

Despite the fact that it snowed a couple inches here this week, I’m going to PRETEND like it’s spring. I’m going to pretend it is warm enough to open the windows and put away the winter blankets and plant some flowers. Even though there’s really still snow on the ground, and I’m sitting here in fuzzy socks and a robe, let’s pretend it’s spring and take a little tour of the house all freshened up for this beautiful season.

For those of you who are stopping by from the home tour, I want to say, WELCOME! I’m thrilled to have you here at the farmhouse. We’re in the process of renovating and updating our cute, old home, and I can’t wait to show you the progress we’ve made so far. Let’s start in my office!

This is the room where all the magic happens… blog magic, that is. ;) With the feminine color palette I chose for the office makeover, it already felt like it was “ready for spring”. A few flowers and pastel accents was all it needed…

Using benches in a dining room instead of chairs is a great way to save space and give the room a relaxed, rustic feel. Follow this tutorial to build your own DIY Farmhouse Bench!

Learn how to build an easy DIY Farmhouse Bench - perfect for saving space in a small dining room! Details at LoveGrowsWild.com

I know what you’re all thinking… “We love the farmhouse table, but aren’t you going to show us those benches, Liz??”

Abso-freaking-lutely! Before we even started building the table, I knew I wanted benches instead of formal dining chairs. #1 It saves a TON of space in our super tight, itty-bitty dining room. The benches just slide right under the table when we’re not using them! And #2 I think it really adds to the rustic farmhouse feel.

These benches are basically a mini version of the farmhouse table, but we did have to make a quite a few adjustments, so I’ll walk you through all the steps. [Read more…]

Last year I made my first batch of baked oatmeal (apple cinnamon… yum!), but it’s been awhile since I’ve tried any new flavors. So yesterday I started brainstorming what kind I wanted to try next, and before I knew it, I had half a page full of ideas. Apparently, I LOVE me some oatmeal.
