Coconut Strawberry Muffins

One of my fondest memories growing up is going to U-pick strawberries with my mom and eating more off the plants than what would end up in my basket. While I would be loaded up on strawberries, we would go home and make some strawberry jam. Now whenever it is strawberry season, I stock up…

Balsamic Grilled Asparagus

Something about grilled asparagus doesn’t make them aspara “gross” like I remember them as a kid.

Ingredients: 1…

Homemade Ramen

I have been hiding this one for a while. Homemade ramen. Yes, I said it. HOMEMADE RAMEN. This is not for the instant ramen fans, or the “I want ramen to make some”. No, this ramen took Kodi and I, a solid 3 days to figure out. Trial and error, add more water, boil it…
