Parmesan & Thyme Popcorn

Today marks my 28th year on earth!!! But how can I be 28 when I still feel (and look most of the time) 16? I’m not sure, but last night, we sang “happy birthday” and I had two babies on my lap and my husband lighting candles and my heart couldn’t be more full. My […]

Ricotta & Arugula Toast

On Monday, my husband and I spent the day together alone at home. Yes, just the two of us at our house, no kids. I repeat, NO KIDS. It hasn’t happened in a very long time, so naturally, the two of us broke into dance as soon as we came home from dropping them of […]

Avgolemono Soup (Egg & Lemon Soup)

Avgolemono. The first soup I ever fell in love with. I’m not sure if it was the richness of the egg, or the tang from the lemon, or the fact that everyone around me encouraged me to dunk crusty bread in it – but I knew right then and there it would be a dish […]

Tangy & Zesty Greek Salad

After the New Year hit, my husband and I vowed to eat at least one salad a week. I know, not very ambitious, but we’re hoping it will help us feel better about ourselves this year. Gotta start small, right? We’ve been bad lately, especially with ordering out (makes me cringe just thinking about it). […]

Four-Month Update on our Little Man

Our Emmy boy turned four months over the weekend and it’s crazy how much he’s developed since my last update. Even though I’ve gone through the newborn phase before, I forgot how they seem to change on a daily basis. At this point he is smiling and laughing a ton. He’s probably happy 90 percent […]

Handwritten Christmas Wrapping

My husband is one of the greatest wrappers ever. No, not the freestyle type – although he would beg to argue on that one – I’m talking gift wrapping peeps. He’s so good that it actually bothers me. You want to know why? Because I don’t know how it’s humanly possible to be such a […]

Arugula Salad with Burrata and Pomegranate-Balsamic Glaze

In an effort to spend more time with my nonna and help take some load off of her Christmas Eve prep, I suggested some of the girls of the family get together to help her make her homemade gnocchi. So we did, and it was so fun, but the lady is nuts. Even though we […]

Christmas Garland Tablescape

Does anyone else tend to get in arguments with their spouse when it comes to decorating? Asking for a friend… Yeah right, totally asking for myself. For some reason, my husband actually cares about the million things I want to hang on the wall!! WHY?!? Do you know why it bothers me? Because I’m a […]

Santa Hat Brownie Bites

My husband and I love hosting our friends and family at our house. It’s always nice to gather with people you care about to catch up and enjoy eats and drinks together. The dishes afterwards are the worst, but the memories make up for cleaning off any grime (I’m so cheesy). This past Saturday we […]
