Steak and Roasted Potato Salad with Roasted Garlic Dressing
I seriously cut the top of my finger this morning and am having a really hard time typing, so this is gonna be short. Always the top of my finger on the hand that I write with. Grrr…. This salad is inspired by one that I saw Nancy Fuller make on her show Farmhouse Rules. I don’t watch [...] The ...
Washington, DC City Guide
I get a lot of questions about what to do, see, and most importantly eat when visiting DC. Now that we have said goodbye after living there for two years, I feel like I can answer this with some credibility. We have done a lot in our time here, and these are some of my favorites. (I am thinking ...
Cowboy Bark Brownies
Have you tried the crazy addicting Cowboy Bark from Trader Joe’s ? Well, if you haven’t, take my word, it is tasty. Dark chocolate, crushed pretzels, toffee, crushed Oreos, nuts, more chocolate, and my favorite bit – sea salt. I needed to bring a dessert to a friend’s house for dinner and came up
Mini Cheesecake Cupcakes
Whew. Between moving and writing my e-book, life has been BUSY. In the very best possible way. If you get my monthly newsletter , than you know that I am currently working on my first e-book project. This one is all things Thanksgiving. If you want to know more about it (and get in on the giveaways
Baked Carrot Cake Doughnuts
I made these delightful Baked Carrot Cake Doughnuts for Dixie Crystals and my children thought that they were so good that they have requested them many times since then. These are really easy to whip up and are a lot healthier than a trip to the doughnut shop. Alongside a steaming cup of coffee,
The Perfect Cheese Plate and Caramel Apple Butter
A cheese plate is without a doubt the easiest appetizer going. It’s assembling – not cooking, and that right there is why it always shows up when I have people over for dinner. I buy some great cheese, and then 9 times out of 10, I shop my pantry to fill it out. I rarely make the same one twice. ...
Berry Almond Tarts
The moving truck pulled away this afternoon. Our lives are packed in the way, way, back and headed to New England. I am very ready for the next chapter. We really thought that DC would be the last place we would move, but after 6 months of living here we decided that it just wasn’t home. I can’t ...
Cherry Almond Galette with Cinnamon Whipped Cream
We have been enjoying some time with family in NJ this week while we wait to meet up with our household goods in Massachusetts. The weather has been perfect and we have spent lots of time at the beach and pool. Wes and I left the kids with my mom and we spend the night in New York City. I [...] The
Texas Tommy Dogs and Cheeseburger Sliders
We are about 95% moved in and settled and I cannot wait to get back into the kitchen (don’t worry, I made sure that I would have lots of things saved to share with you this summer). We are in love with the Cape and have done lots of exploring along with unpacking, unpacking, and more unpacking. My
Grilled Corn Salad with Fresh Herbs
I hope that you had a great Independence Day. We had a wonderful day despite being rained out. Hurricane Arthur made his appearance and cancelled the fireworks and festivities. We ended up spending the day reading books, watching movies, and catching up on some of our shows. Have you been watching
