Earth Day Avocado Toasts

Happy Earth Day, peeps!! This weekend was so beautiful and we were able to snag some time outside with family as we celebrated Easter. My husband and I planted some flowers yesterday and we had our Easter egg hunt outside. Sunshine is SO good for our souls! It’s as if all of our spirits are […]

My Favorite Quiche

It’s been a few years since my husband and I hosted our first brunch. We had my in-laws over to celebrate Mother’s Day and I decided to take a chance on a couple of recipes I found on Pinterest. The quiche was the bomb.com, but the french toast casserole I made was a bust. Luckily […]

Chick in Egg Pancakes

I have this ongoing note in my phone with recipes I come up with on a whim. Whether I’m in the grocery store and see a food I’d like to use in a recipe, or if I’m at a restaurant and become inspired by a dish I’m eating, I’m always adding to the list. I […]

Crunchy Hash Brown Casserole

One of my good friends, Natalie, brought over a hash brown casserole a couple of years ago and it was one of the best breakfast casseroles I’ve ever had. I mean, my mouth just filled with saliva thinking about it. It’s literally drool-worthy and now my go-to for any breakfast/brunch gatherings we have. The casserole […]

Panko, Lemon & Parmesan Brussel Sprouts

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I’m super excited to start a day after being sick with a cold for a few days. I can’t remember the last time I just sat around and did absolutely nothing, but I was able to this weekend and I almost feel like I didn’t know what to do with myself! Shout […]

Kale & Apple Toddler Smoothie

I’ve found that the easiest way to get kids to eat veggies is in smoothie form. Peyton will usually eat any veggie we give her and often asks to eat them raw (she’s something else), but Emory has a select group of veggies he will eat and others kind of have to be “hidden” in […]

Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats

Our St. Patrick’s Day celebration isn’t ever anything big, but one things for sure, we eat  corned beef and cabbage. I actually just bought some from our local meat company for the first time and I’m so excited to cook it in the slow cooker this weekend. Other than that, we don’t really celebrate in […]

White Bean & Basil Falafel

Can you tell I’ve been really digging my Mediterranean roots with the recipes I’ve been posting?! Spanakopita salmon, whipped feta and now falafel. Give me all the Med foods all day, every day. This recipe is a special one for me because as I was creating it, it took me back in time. Falafel was […]

Whipped Feta

When my husband and I first got married we lived in Chicago and absolutely loved it. We were obsessed and never wanted to leave. And then I got pregnant and our priorities changed. Being closer to family and living in the suburbs made more sense and allowed me to start working part-time. It was really […]

Spanakopita Baked Salmon

We all have a favorite grocery store. One that we’re super dedicated to and will always choose above all of the other options. The others try to compare, but they just can’t. When a grocery store wins our hearts, it’s game over. My ride or die has become Whole Foods. Now, do I buy everything […]
