Happy New Year, friends! I can’t believe 2015 is here! Is it just me or has 2014 flown by! 2014 has been such a wonderful, yet busy, year around here. We listed our home FSBO and successfully found a buyer who is willing to pay more than we thought (or hoped) was realistic. We are also excited to have found a new home (with a nicely sized backyard for the kids) in the same town. My blog has taken off and is receiving more traffic, more sponsorships and more engagement than ever! Yay! Thanks everyone! Sophia is loving her preschool and Charlotte is getting bigger and more talkative every day. It has been a happy year and for that, I am grateful!

I wanted to share with you all an easy, delicious recipe for an asparagus side dish. Flavored with the lovely flavors of garlic, lemon and parmesan cheese, these asparagus stalks are tender and so flavorful! This recipe is a wonderful addition to any party meal plan, or even an easy weeknight option, when you want a delicious side dish recipe to whip together quickly.

Let’s get to the recipe, shall we?
