My 2020 Summer Reading Recommendations

2020 has been quite a year to say the (very) least, and while I like to stay knowledgeable about all of the mayhem so I can make informed decisions about whether or not I should send my kids to daycare or whether or not I can see my parents, this is also the time for... Continue Reading →

Cheddar Jalapeño Grits

Sorry for the delay in new posts and recipes lately, but we have had a lot of chaos going on in our house this past week, but so it goes, life moves on, and you always gotta eat. Needless to say, after a particularly difficult week, we were in need of some comfort food. So... Continue Reading →

Coffee Ice Cream (Dairy Free)

Coffee ice cream probably wouldn't be my first choice at an ice cream parlor (I'm the type who likes giant chunks of cookie dough or rainbow sprinkles on my ice cream), but at home on the couch, coffee ice cream on top of one of my decadent and fudgy avocado brownies is one of my...

Mexican Street Corn Steak Salad

It's the end of the work week, and Thursday is my favorite day because my husband gets to come home a little bit earlier from work and hang with us. It's been so hot lately, but the weather was actually perfect today, so I went for a run as soon as Brandon got home. I've... Continue Reading →

I love Greek food because it can be so filling and so light all at... Continue Reading →

So I thought I'd kick this simple dessert up a notch and make everything from scratch. Well except the chocolate. We bought the chocolate. I've made marshmallows before, and... Continue Reading →

Homemade Graham Crackers

From time to time, I get the urge to bake something a little bit out of the ordinary, outside the typical cakes, cookies, and breads. Over the last week, my husband has been saying he's wants to have a campfire this weekend, so I had the idea to make s'mores, but not just regular s'mores...... Continue Reading →

The Ultimate Summer Salad

I can't even begin to count the number of times I've typed "Big Salad Near Me" into Yelp. It's a craving I get often, especially in the summer when I don't especially want something hot or heavy. I imagine an enormous chef salad with tons of veggies and toppings and a delicious from scratch dressing.... Continue Reading →
