American Flag Brownies with Mascarpone Frosting

I’m back at it with another Fourth of July recipe! This my second one this week, which is pretty impressive considering I’ve been extremely silent around here lately. Holidays always motivate me and get my creative mind going, so after this post, you will likely not hear from me again for awhile – ha! Making […]

Fourth of July Bagel Board

It’s so strange to think about how different the Fourth of July will be this year. Last year, we watched our town’s parade, had a ton of fun with a bunch of our friends and their kids in our backyard, celebrated my mom’s birthday with my extended family and then watched the fireworks with Brett’s […]

Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa & Sour Cream Slaw

We’ve been putting together some pretty laughable combinations together for lunch and dinner around here. I don’t think our pantry or freezer have ever been as empty as they’ve been the past few weeks. We’re really trying to limit our trips to the grocery store and it’s been hard thinking through every single thing we’ll […]

Asiago & Herb Beer Bread

We’ve been going on a lot of family walks lately, and during one of our strolls a couple of days ago, Brett and I were talking about how much peace this change of pace has brought us during this newborn phase. It’s been a relief not feeling obligated to be anywhere and we’ve never had […]

Bacon, Sausage and Cheddar Quiche

While we didn’t plan on getting together with our families for Easter because we knew we would be having a baby the week before, it’s still strange that family gatherings will be looking very different on Sunday and that most churches will be streaming their services online. I’m sure a lot of families will carry […]

Easter Bunny Pudding Cups

Me again! Sending you some Easter cheer in the form of pudding cups. Did anyone else eat the good old worm cups with “dirt” growing up? I think I remember having a couple when I was younger and thinking it was the coolest thing to be eating something that looked like it came from the […]

Tuna & Spaghetti

How is everyone doing?? Is it strange that being inside and not seeing anyone is becoming sort of normal? This is definitely not how I envisioned spending the last couple of weeks of my pregnancy, but I’m trying my best to look at the bright side of things and just take it one day at […]

Grilled Corned Beef & Havarti Sandwich

It’s been a pretty crazy weekend to say the least! I pray you’re all staying healthy and that your stress levels aren’t too high. We’ve had some long days at home (besides Brett and I running out quickly to the grocery store) and I feel so bad for this kids, but we’re taking this social […]

Rainbow Toaster Pastries

Another day leading up to St. Patrick’s Day, another rainbow treat to enjoy. The kids and I made these cute pastries a couple of days ago and we enjoyed creating and filling and topping them together. We of course had to take turns because both the kids needed my help with some of the steps […]

Charred Rapini with Italian Sausage

Rapini or broccoli rabe? What do you call it? I grew up always calling it rapini and was very confused to learn that there was another name for the bitter green I’ve grown to love so much over the years. I’m used to eating it the way my Nonna prepares it. She boils it in […]
