Southwest Beef Sprouted Rice & Quinoa that my husband can't get enough of!

This is a pretty fast, super healthy, crazy easy recipe that my husband claims he could never get enough of. My kids loved it too and wanted seconds and thirds! Ron has been asking me when I will make it again, so tonight is the night! Since it's been on my mind, I thought I'd share it with you. If your taste buds are anything like ours, your whole family will absolutely love it!

We're retiring from shows + plus, a shipping update

The title says it all, and it's true. It's time, and it feels right. After 14 seasons, we have decided it's time to wrap up the Craft Show and Christmas Market chapter in our lives and really start to enjoy the holidays. Our kids are getting older and through the years we have loved doing these shows, but the only downside it that it has also meant being away from our kids for a few weeks and for a very fast paced December served with a side of exhaustion for us all.
