Tanque Verde Ranch-Part 2

One of my favorite activities we did at the Tanque Verde Ranch was the Breakfast Ride.  The ride will take you through the beautiful rolling hills of the desert as you make your way to the Old Homestead.
Upon reaching the destination, indulge in a freshly cooked breakfast prepared right in front of you. The famous blueberry pancakes were definitely a highlight. If pancakes aren’t your thing (I am concerned) they have delicious ranch style eggs, bacon and fresh juice.  It was a great halfway break to refuel and head back on the trail.

Wishing you a blessed day!

Tanque Verde Ranch

I always love a good adventure.  Last weekend My Dapper Fellow and I ventured down south to the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch for a weekend stay of ranch life, horses and the wild, wild west.

Tanque Verde Ranch is located 2 hours south of Phoenix, AZ. The resort is equipped with all-inclusive accommodations catering 3 meals a day and endless activities to keep you happy and occupied.  Everything from hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding to yoga, fishing or sand volleyball is available. We woke up early Sunday morning and did the Breakfast Ride which was the highlight of our trip and I will share more later this week. Our Casita in the photo below was fully equipped with more than we needed.   All the rooms at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch are tv-less in attempt to get you to detach from everything necessary for the week/ed.

Yarnell, Arizona

A few weeks ago I took a day trip to Yarnell, Arizona.  Yarnell is a small town on the way to Las Vegas.  It’s a very quaint, kitchy town.  On our way back we stopped at Wickenberg to eat and I couldn’t resist this old red school house.  :)

Savory Sunday-Liberty Market

I think it’s safe to say I have found one of my new favorite restaurants in Phoenix. This is huge because this never happens. I am such a loyal follower to my local favs that it is hard for me to try some of these new trending places.  I heard and read nothing but awesome things about Liberty Market and couldn’t wait to try it out.  Only one problem, it is very far from my house.  It took a few weeks, but I made it into Liberty Market solo for lunch one day.  I instantly was drawn to the exposed kitchen, concrete flooring and the awesome lighting.  It was a very old school vibe with fresh Portland foodie feel.  I couldn’t wait to order.  I got the Best Chicken Sandwich and it was indeed one of the best chicken sandwiches I had ever had.  I returned 3 times later that week alone and when the weekend came brought my mom to join me…

4We got the Best Chicken Sandwich again and also added the soup/salad combo and tried the minestrone and house salad.   The ingredients were so fresh and we didn’t talk for 15 minutes because we were just too busy devouring all the amazing food.  I highly recommend this amazing restaurant if you’re ever in the East Valley part of Arizona.

*Liberty Market is located in Gilbert, Arizona*

Have a great Sunday everyone!
