Gingerbread house french toast

‘Tis the season for gingerbread houses and dressing up all types of breakfast. Breakfast is just better when there is icing and sprinkles involved! Last year, we hosted a pjs and pancakes party with some of the kids’ friends and I was hoping it would turn into an annual tradition, but we’re continuing to keep […]

festive reindeer rice krispie treats

You know Dasher and Dancer, and the rest of them, but do you recall the most delicious reindeer of all? Yesterday the kids and I made these cocoa krispie reindeer treats. I melted the butter and marshmallows together, and the kids helped me add the cocoa krispies to the pot and topped them with sprinkles […]

Havarti & Cheddar mac and cheese

Two nights ago I had the biggest dinner fail ever!! I’m normally pretty good about whipping a meal up whether I’ve made it before or not, but Wednesday night was a complete disaster. I decided to cook chiles rellenos recipe. Please note, it was a new recipe and I have never made chiles rellenos before. […]

Goat Cheese, sage & bacon Turkey Cheeseball

No holiday is complete without cheese. None! I’m normally all about the cheese boards, but the thought of this turkey cheeseball was so fun in my head that I had to put it together. Thanksgiving can be a holiday that embraces the cheeseball, right? Better than mockolate! I’m giving air fives to all of my […]

Chocolate witch hats

Earlier this week we played ghost and booed some of our friends! It’s a tradition I always look forward to. I still remember the first time I took Peyton when she was two-years-old… she cried when we left every house because she didn’t get the concept of dropping off treats to surprise our friends! It’s […]

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 […]
