Peach, Burrata & Crispy Prosciutto Crostini

Every weekend at the farmer’s market, I can’t resist buying a pound or two of peaches. Especially from the farm that sells peaches from Georgia – they are the juiciest and sweetest! I’m always looking for recipes and ways to use my peaches because I seem to hoard them and end up with so many […]

A Fairy Special Birthday Party

Peyton has been into fairies ever since we bought A Fairy Friend by Sue Fliess a couple of years ago. It is the sweetest book. The illustrations and poetic phrases about how to build a fairy garden and make fairy friends is a dream. We made our first fairy garden after reading it and I wrote a […]

Grilled Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa, Fresh Corn & Sour Cream

Phew! What a whirlwind of a weekend. It seemed long, didn’t it? I feel like that’s always the case when a holiday falls close to the weekend. I hope you all had a great Fourth of July! We had a jam-packed day, but it was so wonderful. I honestly wouldn’t have changed a thing. It […]

Red, White & Blue Sangria

My last Fourth of July post this year and I’m going out with a bang – wine! I don’t make sangria enough, but it’s summer and a holiday, so why not start! Funny story about sangria, my husband swore that’s all he would drink when we got to Spain. He was all stoked about trying […]

Cheesy Hot Dogs with Fried Bread & Butter Pickles

My mom’s birthday just so happens to fall on the Fourth of July, so every year we go to my nonna’s house to celebrate. I’m sure a lot of you are used to having barbecues and pies on the Fourth, but my mom’s side is Italian, so our Fourth of July gathering is very different. […]

Fourth of July Cheese Board

If I could compete for the title of Queen of Cheese, I’m pretty sure I’d win. Okay, I know that makes me sound a little full of myself, but I am literally known for my love of cheese. One of my best friends called me Cheddar throughout college because she had never seen anyone eat […]

Strawberry & Blueberry Panzanella Salad

Man, this Fourth of July holiday has been a tough one for me to crack recipe-wise! In the past, I’ve posted these star-shaped hand pies and this red, white and blue trifle, but for some reason had such a tough time thinking through something fun to share with you this year. I set my mind […]

Motherhood Then & Now

My Papou came over last week for lunch and while we ate our way through french toast and bacon, we talked and laughed with the kids and my mom. At one point, my papou turned to me and asked, do you think motherhood is more difficult now than it was back then? It’s funny because […]

Parmesan, Panko & Almond Crusted Tilapia

Okay, so growing up I wasn’t much of a fish person, but over the years and after trying different types, it’s now one of my go-to weeknight meals. It’s funny because the fish I despised the most was probably tilapia and now, ten years later, I’m developing recipes for it – ha! I don’t know […]

Alella, Spain Travel Guide

As I mentioned in my Barcelona Travel Guide, we booked a private tour to the town of Alella with Adler & Marlow. I had stumbled upon Alella on Instagram while researching wineries near Barcelona and ended up seeing a picture of a winery called Alta Alella. That’s when I started looking into whether or not […]
