Old Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies
I am a Britney Spears fan. Big Time. Like I almost filmed my very own “Leave Britney Alone” video. Yes, I know that she can’t really sing that well. And yes, of course I feel embarrassed when I have great indie bands grouped into the same playlist as BSpears on my Spotify…but what can I [...]
Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
I have 5 animals. 1 dog that thinks he is a cat and 4 cats that think they are people. I know, I know — this sounds absolutely excessive. It probably is, but each one of them has shown up needing a home and Jorge and I are helpless to turn them away. We are [...]
Idaho Potato Harvest
Last week I spent most of my days covered in dirt and half buried under pounds of potatoes. No, I wasn’t on some weird episode of Dirty Jobs…I was celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Idaho Potato Commission by attending the Idaho Potato Harvest! When the wonderful people behind the Famous Idaho
The video where I smile a lot & talk really fast.
Back in June I made a video with my favorite girl, Lauren of Lauren’s Latest and Jaden of Steamy Kitchen for Pork, Be Inspired and Costco. Lauren and I talked about Fall dish ideas using pork chops that we thought sounded tasty (even though it was May and sooo not time for things like maple gravy

Clementine Bling Muffins
These muffins… Oh these darling muffins… They have some serious pizzazz don’t they?! They are so glamourous with all that bling on top. They are honestly, quite possibly, the cutest damn muffin I ever did done see! There is only one problem…they aren’t muffins. I hate to burst your bubble, but that
Carrot Crinkle Cookie Sandwiches
Katie Holmes finally filed for divorce from Jump On Couches (my Indian name for Tom Cruise). It’s freaking hot outside. You can tell because everyone and their mother is posting a picture of the temperature on Facebook. …cause you know, you totally couldn’t have known it was hot without their ...
Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Shallot Sauce
I don’t cook fish very often, if ever. It’s not that I don’t love fish, I do! In fact, it is one of my favorite proteins. The problem lies in my inexperience with cooking it and knowing it will almost never taste as goods as my Dad’s (for example, his –and my mom’s– Blackened Fish [...]
