Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!! From two really big dorks… We dressed as contestants on the Price is Right. And you’re not seeing things… Taylor’s shirt really says “Bob Barker is my Homeboy”. Classic. Unfortunately for us, it was chilly the night we wore them, and our coats covered our creativity. Our pumpkins however, stole the show. Taylor’s...

Lentil, Turkey, & Apple Wraps

Make the best of the fall apples – stick them in anything and everything. You’d be surprised how well they work with just about everything. Like these crisp and refreshing wraps.
