Happy Saturday, friends! More specifically, the Saturday before Valentines Day. So I thought I just must leave you with a super fun recipe for you to hammer out this weekend…Cherry Pie Pastry Hearts! Continue reading
Truth: my family has about had it with zucchini, I am afraid. As promised, I am dedicating this entire week on the blog to zucchini-because man, it’s everywhere and it’s just got to be utilized. So, as one would assume, I have been testing zucchini recipes left and right in my kitchen for the last couple of weeks. Some failed miserably, some were just mediocre, and some wowed us and actually convinced me that my children like zucchini; these Cheesy Mexican Zucchini boats were one of those.
I shared the recipe on KARE11 a couple of days ago and it was such a great time. I always love spending afternoons around there-the people are just so darn friendly, the work space is so far beyond most local TV station kitchens, and it’s a total excuse for me to get out and ‘work’ outside of my own kitchen; so fun! Click here to see the video if you didn’t catch it. I’m happy to say the recipe was totally loved by all! Continue reading

Spaghetti Pie. My guess it’s graced your family’s table in some way, shape or form. Think baked ziti, with spaghetti noodles. It’s casserole-ish. Hot dish-ish, to my Minnesotan friends. It’s comforting, rich, gooey and just plain welcomed in my home.
So, how about Spaghetti Pie with roasted spaghetti squash? Have you? Would you? You should. You totally should. Heres why… Continue reading
Happy Halloween Week! It’s funny, I was never really a fan of this upcoming holiday until my kids came along. But now, for me, it’s basically pure excitement. It’s a fun excuse to dress my kids in hilarious outfits (please, just pray Jude allows me to put his costume on him for at least one photo. one, thats the goal this year, just one little itty bitty photo is all i ask for. pray friends, pray.) Not to mention this holiday is perfectly placed among the most GORGEOUS time of year. Crispy Autumn. Ahh.
So on top of the costume thing and the beautiful time of year thing I’m pretty sure most of my excitement stems from the fact that it’s a perfectly wonderful opportunity to get fun and creative in the kitchen. Holidays equal special food. Always. Continue reading
Any recollection of this Brady Bunch episode where Peter is obsessed with imitating other people? His Humphrey Bogart rocked. Pork chaaapssh and applesaush. And isn’t it so normal how Carol greets Mike at the door so charismatically with that dress and heels on? That’s EXACTLY what it’s like when my husband gets home from work. Minus the dress and plus some sweatpants. Minus the heels and plus bare feet. And plus screaming kids climbing on me. And usually, hair that’s made it through half of the day but has retired to a top knot because food has somehow nestled it’s way into every strand. But other than that, it’s the EXACT same.
