  • Geek And Funny T-Shi… cool graphic tshirtsI have a confession to make… T-shirt designs are kind of my thing. If there was a closet that could house all the cool t-shirt designs that were ever created then it would sit empty. That’s right. I said empty. Because for all of the designs and catchy logos that are printed on these wearable walking billboards, I have always exercised a bit of restraint in purchasing them. That all ended when I discovered OliPop Art & ... Read More
  • Hurricane Survival T… Hurricane Survival TipsWe had 3 Hurricane warnings since moving to the island of Hawaii six months ago.

A little background info: Jager Foods, the company, was first created in 1985 by Nick’s parents on their farm in Minnesota where they produced delicious Shiitake Soups. At one time they had four ladies and Grandma helping in the soup kitchen. The business was very good for a while! You could find the four distinct flavors of Jager Foods soups in local grocery stores, as well as specialty stores & gift shops all over the country. Sadly, Shiitake mushrooms grew out of favor in the mid-90’s and sales declined dramatically, forcing them to close the soup kitchen.

In 2006 we created a website and tried our hands at reviving the soup business. Instead of making and selling Jager Foods Soup Mixes, we found out very quickly that we were much better suited for writing articles and sharing our life experiences.

Today we create easy recipes, write about travel destinations, review products, provide DIY tips and try to entertain our blog visitors and readers as best we can. This food, travel, review and lifestyle blog is also a way for us to share life with our families that are spread across the US and Europe.

Thank you for visiting and best wishes to you and yours! Nick and Silke Jager
