Good day, friends! I hope your weekend was what a long-Thanksgiving weekend should be…relaxing, fun and yummy-food-filled! And now, back to the grind. But let me tell you, this salad is a mighty fine way to start that grind.
If we are Instagram buddies you may have seen my recent obsession with the Kale + Broccoli Salad from Lunds and Byerlys, a local grocer around these parts. And you guys, the obsession is legit. LE-GIT. You know I’m a sucker for super-grain farro to begin with, especially in salad form. But besides my beloved farro, this salad just has gobs of goodies in it: kale, broccoli, parmesan, apricots, sun dried tomatoes. Weird combo, no? No! You wont believe what that flavor/texture hodge podge does…it will knock your socks off! Continue reading
Well, a gloomy forecast is ahead, friends. I thought this one may be fitting for your cozy-day weekend plans. And the best part? It’s hands-off to the max so you can sit back and kick your feet up while your slow cooker does all the work 😉 Continue reading
Those thin little pork loin cutlets you see in your market? They were made for these. These rolls look fancy. They taste fancy. And they are equally as special for entertaining as they are for a simple weeknight assemble-ahead meal. Heres how they go: Continue reading

You guys. These mothers day commercials that are all over the tube these last couple of evenings? I gush. The tears. The sweetness. Mothers…of children, of students, of dogs, I don’t care who you mother. You deserve the world. 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.
I suppose we are due for a Super Bowl friendly recipe, no? Sunday is the big day-I have no idea who is playing in this game. I also have no idea where this game is being played. One thing I do know, tho, is that I look forward to the commercials. And I also know of the perfect recipe to pair with this hyped up event. Continue reading
I kind of feel like just letting the pictures talk to you today, friends. Eat with your eyes, it’s so darn fun. But don’t leave your belly hanging…get these on your Super Bowl menu this year. So good. Continue reading
I once wrote an article about the positives of having a traveling husband. And I totally forgot to include a very important perk.
When your husband travels, particularly to Seattle, he feels terribly bad that you are missing out on all the ‘fun’ so he has fresh fish from Pike Place Market sent home for you. That Nickyboy. He’s a total winner. Continue reading
This was positively not supposed to happen today. I had a plan. I am dependent on my plans. For this, I blame my children.
Pre kids I could’ve won awards for flying by the seat of my pants. Always down for whatever. Always willing to juggle around my days.

Procrastination was a strong suit of mine. It still is, but there is now a schedule. That part has just got to stick. Continue reading
