The Aftermath

Key Lime Cheesecake is in the oven.

The limes didn't stand a chance.
The aftermath

flip flops - times two

Those of you that read MMH on a regular basis, know that I am not a "product review" blogger. So this is not the typical post you will see here, but I want to take a moment to introduce something to you.

Science in the Summer

Learning doesn't have to stop, just because summer is here. This summer we are working on a hands-on science project. We have volunteered with the Fairbanks Fish & Wildlife Department, and are assisting in a study.

Memorial Day

This weekend, lots of people will be getting together for barbecues and fun. Cooking up lots of goodies, and grilling lots of meats.

This would make a great addition to your BBQ.

The Hike Down

After enjoying some amazing views on our hike, we enjoyed the trip back down.

One of the really cool things, was a waterfall/spring that was flowing down the mountain...still under a layer of snow!

Angel Rock Trail

It is almost needless to say, that you can find natural beauty all around up here - after all, this is Alaska. But over the weekend, we went on a mini camping trip, and made a point of visiting a special place called "Angel Rock Trail."

Buttery Sweet Frosting

This is the frosting that you see on the Classic Yellow Cake.


I will warn you though, this is quite sweet! You'll want a glass of milk to wash it down! This frosting is similar to the kind you would find on store-bought cakes. VERY sweet...something I save for special occasions.

Classic Yellow Cake

I really hate mixes....I have always thought that it was "cheating." Cake mixes were probably the last mixes I gave up as I learned how to cook from scratch, because they were just so easy! This recipe is for a classic yellow cake. You can use it for anything you would use yellow cake for. Makes great cupcakes too! (And knowing what you are eating is always a plus!)


Mmmmm........Wordless Wednesday

In Honor of Military Spouse Appreciation Day! (Give-Away)

It's time to let you know what is in the box!

In honor of Military Spouse Appreciation Day...since I've been one for 20 years....I am hosting a little give-away.

And because I am in Alaska, it MUST be something uniquely Alaskan.


Guess What Time it is?

No seriously! Guess what time I took this picture?

Tune in tomorrow to find out what's in the box!

Hint....it's an Alaska thing.

Biking Around Fairbanks

This evening, we headed out around 8pm for a bike ride around Fairbanks. I was traveling light, so I didn't have my "real" camera with me, but I did have my phone. So this post will be all "phone pics."

Changes to Military Mondays

I am making some minor changes to the "Military Monday" process for highlighting MilSpouses.


Morning Routine

This is how I try to read my e-mail in the mornings.

Seriously Hickory?


Can someone hand me my coffee?

Military Monday - Blog Hop



Well....I don't have a regular Military Monday post for you. My guest for this week hasn't gotten back to me yet, so instead, I thought I would host a Military Blog Hop/link-up!

If you are a MilSpouse, please feel free to share your link!

A Storm of Emotions

After yesterday's news, I have had many thoughts and emotions running through my mind.

Perfect "All Day" Oven Ribs

These ribs are simply to die for. And the best part, is you can make them ahead of time, and then finish them in minutes!

These ribs can be made with any cut of beef ribs. Here you can see where I made them with babyback ribs, and simply cut them into individual ribs before cooking. So if you see a cut of ribs on sale, give them a try!


Midnight Sun

Well, today is the first day of May. The days are getting longer and longer....and already, this is what the sky is like at midnight!



I can't wait to see what it will be like the first day of summer!
