Recipe: Salsa Verde

Last year, my food processor died a slow and painful death. This tragedy made me realize how much I relied on my food processor. I would constantly pull it out to puree soups, slice strawberries, blend salsas, etc. Instead of purchasing a new food processor, I limped along with my hand blender. Then last month, on a routine trip to Costco, I broke down and purchased a new food processor. (Queue music)  Reunited and it feels so good!

Recipe: Zucchini and Jalapeno Quiche


Over the summer months, our garden produces an abundance of zucchini and jalapeno. In an attempt to not waste perfectly good food, I’ve tried to come up with creative ways to incorporate these two vegetables into our menu. This recipe did a good job accomplishing that.

Where have all the FHR Girls gone: The Perfect Excuse

Have you noticed that having a FHR baby babies has affected all of the FHR girls? With the arrival of Baby JoJo and Baby Landrie-Loo it would appear that we’ve all gone on maternity leave.

However, the real truth is that we’ve all been dealing with our own individual-stress-filled-lives that have diverted us from our passion for FHR. And we are not doing our posts like we should. You see, it’s difficult to have stress in your life when you have inherited the “perfect” gene. We are spending all of our time being perfectly stressed out. There’s just no time left over for anything else. It’s what I call the “perfect” excuse. View full post »

DIY: Hand Dyed Stationary

Since my life is comprised of writing e-mails, attending meetings, managing employees, and changing diapers, sometimes I like to release some steam by taking a break from the mundane and tinkering with my craft supplies. One of my latest projects included customizing my stationary with Rit Dye. A favorite component of mine is the refashioned  gift tags. I have already given them out with a few gifts.  View full post »
