One-Pot Broccoli & Parmesan Farro

Farro is a grain I’ve become very obsessed with the past couple of years. I love it because it’s filling, healthy and not as starchy as rice. It’s also got a nice bite and adds great texture to many dishes. When Peyton was a baby, I used to make her these little ramekin dishes filled […]

Monster Marshmallow Treats

The time is near to start booing our friends!! We’re looking forward to dropping treats off at their doors and ringing the doorbell. Last year, Peyton got quite sad when we would drop off the treats and not say hi, so this year, I’m prepared to tell her that we’re kind of acting like ghosts […]

Spooky S’more Spider Webs

Anyone else have their Halloween decorations up already? My daughter and I had a blast putting them up together, but man, those fake spider webs just cling to everything! I feel like I’m going to be finding spider web fuzzies around our house for months. This week, I learned that there’s an even messier version […]

Prosciutto, Pesto & Tomato “BLT”

We returned from our family trip to California on Monday and came back to a garden full of red tomatoes! We were only gone for a few days, but a lot of them grew while we were gone. Is it just me, or did tomatoes take a while to bloom and grow this year? I […]

Greek Yogurt with Lemon Curd & Homemade Granola

Last week, I meal planned for the first time in a long time! I used to be so regimented about planning what we were going to eat throughout the week, but with so much going on this summer, I’ve let it slip through the cracks. It was SO refreshing flipping through cookbooks and my Pinterest […]

Chocolate, Almond & Strawberry S’mores

My husband is the s’mores king. He knows how to perfectly crisp up a marshmallow, likely has a method on how close the camping fork should be to the fire and his eyes practically roll back to the back of his head every time he bites into a pile of graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallow. I […]

Grilled Chicken, Goat Cheese & Peach Salad with a White Balsamic Vinaigrette

Yesterday evening, I attended a women’s mixer at our church with some of my friends. It was so nice spending quality time together, meeting new women, and laughing and conversing over the ups and downs of motherhood. Each woman was asked to bring a salad to share with everyone and there were so many! Salads […]

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 […]

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 […]
