I’m just going to lay it all out there, guys. We’ve talked about that word ‘creamy’. There. I said it. I put it out there. I can not stand the way that word sounds. But it needs to be used. Theres a time and a place…and this, right here, would be it. Continue reading
Exciting plans for Cinco De Mayo this Thursday, friends? I’m pretty sure these could be one of my favorite new ways to celebrate..holy yum. Continue reading
Ladies and Gentleman of the Delicious Food Nation please rise…
We are gathered here today to witness the union of Roasted Chicken, Pomegranate Relish and Tahini Sauce in holy matrimony, which is an honorable estate, that is not to be entered into lightly, but reverently and soberly. Well, if you want to pair it with a fine white wine that would be okay. Continue reading
I planned on just leaving you with a bit of Thanksgiving meal inspiration today. I did. But it felt wrong, you know, not sharing a new recipe and all. It felt like going to a dinner party empty handed. No dish to share, no bottle of wine or even fresh flowers. It felt icky. So it’s not going to happen. This snack mix is your hostess gift. I hope you like it 😉 Continue reading
‘The Holidays’. Is it safe to say they are upon us? I’m going to go ahead and declare a yay on that. It is November, after all. And the hustle and bustle is right around the corner. I’ll be the first to admit, I love it. Most of it.
I love it because of the constant gathering around the table with loved ones. People just tend to get together more often, at least in my world. Whether it’s a group of couples having a fun dinner out on the town, old friends who are hosting a gathering in an effort to get the ‘gang’ back together, or simply having dinner at other families houses, we just tend to do it more often around this time of year. And I’m TOTALLY cool with that. Continue reading
Oh boy. Get ready. I’m in gush mode over here.
Can you even? It’s just… 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
So friends, as you may remember, I am a total fan of homemade applesauce. It’s unbeatable…store bought varieties just don’t compare. Not to mention when you make it homemade you’re not stripping away a ton of the nutrients through processing and preserving. I’m just sold on the whole deal, especially considering how simple it is to prepare at home.
Now, theres a couple of kinds of food love, in my book. Theres being a total fan, as I told you I was of the applesauce in the paragraph above. And then theres Hallelujah, over the moon, this-is-out-of-control, party-don’t-stop food love. This Cinnamon Pear Sauce? I would classify it under the latter. 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.

Well, the time has come my friends. My computer has taken a turn for the worse. It will be admitted into the ICU on Thursday. Prayers, positive vibes and pleas that my not-backed-up blogging lifeline can make a full, healthy recovery. Turns out, pumping it full of nourishing food just wasn’t enough. Touché. Continue reading
