Italian Vegetable Fritatta

Our garden is bursting with zucchini! I’ve sauteed it, made ratatouille, attempted zucchini noodles, and baked it with parmesan. I love cutting it into thin matchsticks and eating it raw in a veggie wrap or on a salad for lunch. I’ve also made loaf after loaf of zucchini bread, trying some new recipes (like this

Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie

One of the things I love about summer is having more time to spend in the kitchen with my children. It’s always so much fun to watch them learn how to bake. It’s hard to beat the smiles on their faces when they taste what they’ve made. This summer I’m letting both of them choose

Crispy Coconut Kale with Roasted Salmon

I tried this recipe for the first time last weekend and it was a HIT.  I love salmon and kale, but combining them together like this was something I had never done.  You won’t believe how flavorful it is!   Keep a close eye on the kale so it doesn’t burn (I’ll do better next

Bacon Jam

Here’s a recipe that any dad would love! It’s jam made with bacon. We like to spread it on a baguette slice topped with sharp white cheddar, but it’s also perfect for hamburgers. What dad wouldn’t love that?

After a full week I am so glad when Saturday rolls around. It seems like lately things have been so busy.  We have been traveling a lot on the weekends, but a couple of weeks ago we were actually home. So, we did one of my favorite things – we made scones for breakfast!  Our

Sugar Snap Salad with Miso Dressing

Are you headed to a Memorial Day cookout this weekend? Tired of taking the same old salad? Jazz things up a little with this twist on traditional coleslaw! I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I really do love my Smitten Kitchen cookbook.  I’ve just found that I can’t go wrong with any recipe in

Spring Vegetable Fritatta

Last month I decided to try the Juice Cleanse Reset Diet.  I hesitate to even type that, since I am not a fan of dieting in general, but rather I like to focus on creating a healthy lifestyle. In fact, I rarely use the word “diet” at all, because I don’t want my daughter to

Strawberry Shortcake

We are so lucky to live near a local strawberry farm. Every year about this time, we all start thinking about fresh, sweet strawberries. Then one day the strawberry cart will pop up with buckets of strawberries to sell, and we rejoice! (Hint: the strawberries picked towards the end of the season are always the

Homemade Tortillas

We LOVE Mexican food at our house.  In fact, we eat it twice a week.  We have taco night and then several days later, we almost always have a chicken fajita night too, which conveniently uses up any leftovers from taco night!  All you have to do is cook the chicken.  🙂  Since we eat
