Oh Lordy. Meet my new best friend, you guys. And I’ve got one lousy photo to prove it…ugh, a food bloggers worst nightmare. I contemplated waiting to take more photos and post this recipe after the next time we have it but you know what? I don’t really think its a good idea for me to wait any longer than necessary to hand this one over to you. It’s a weeknight game changer and it tastes like a giant bowl of happiness.

Peaches are popping up all over the place these days, guys. And man are they tasting amazing. We can’t get enough.
This has sort of been the ‘house salad’ going on in our home lately. It pairs with everything as an amazing side dish. But really…I prefer it alone, all by it’s pretty little self, as the perfect meal. Continue reading
I hope you’re reading this feeling refreshed after a long weekend! We had a great one that involved so much yummy food and this Roasted Potato Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette +Bleu Cheese was up there on the list.
It’s a fantastic way to doll up potatoes without much work at all. We paired it with grilled steaks and a green salad and it fit in just perfectly. It’s wonderful both warm and at room temperature which makes it great for entertaining and it couldn’t be more simple to do. Continue reading
Meet my new Culinary Best Friend. The light to my kitchen darkness. The vibrant to my blah. The gorgeous sunshine to my spring. I have fallen. And let me just tell you why.
When I first moved up to Minneapolis I waited tables at this place. There was a reuben on the menu that they were sort of known for at the time. But it wasn’t like any other reuben I’d ever had. The corned beef was braised. So the results were not a slice of dry beef, but the most tender, pull-apart, juicy bliss. It was basically like a love child between a pot roast and a corned beef brisket.
Fast forward about a bajillion years and here I was, just this past weekend, standing among a St Patricks Day haven at the local market: a giant cooler full of corned beef briskets. Score! Totally trying this reuben thing at home. Continue reading
Once upon a time there was a blender. Lets just call him Mr Blender. Clever, I know. Continue reading
If you are searching for an alternative to that preservative-filled, store bought ranch seasoning mix, look no further. My guess is you already have all of the ingredients siting in your pantry and it couldn’t be more simple to put together. Continue reading
We are suckers for this stuff around our house. It makes veggies perfectly dippable and salads ridiculously indulgent. And if you ask me, its tough to find a store bought version that is worth eating…which isn’t such a bad thing because its a cinch to make at home with just a few simple ingredients. And in my opinion, guilt free if you are using an olive oil based mayo. This doesn’t last long in our fridge. Continue reading
