So, readers……the year kind of got away from me!

After the fall I got engrossed in the holidays AND getting ready for baby. I plan to add some blogging about pregnancy/mom life very soon and give this blog a make over! Lots more home projects, baby things and of course FOOD! Now that I am able to cook again…..I ran out of energy with my pregnancy and of course had no time with a newborn.

Until I give this blog a bit of a boost here are the goods:

Stress-free Vegetarian Black Bean Soup

Ok, I lied I will just post up this recipe today as I was already inquried about it and this week will be a busy one!

I meant to post up a recipe for some delicious Cajun style catfish I made today but I feel like a small recap of what I’ve been up to all summer was in order first.

Happy Spring!

Happy spring from Cheese and Weim! I’ve gone completely dead in my blog writing lately but it’s not for all bad reasons! Mostly because it’s gotten nice out here, finally, after a brutal winter. With the nice weather comes a lot of events and general “I need to get out of the house and outside” feelings. I’ve been working on some new recipes and feel confident that I will be posting up a storm for the grilling season soon!

Until then here are some highlights of what we’ve been up to here and my favorite summer kick off salad.
