Sauteed Broccoli Rabe

Growing up half Italian, I’ve had a ton of pasta. A TON. My mom would make it, my aunts would make it and of course, my Nonna would make it. To this day, every family get together has some sort of pasta on the menu. Lasagna, manicotti, pasta with sauce, pasta with ricotta, ravioli and […]

Strawberry Limemade Cocktail

It’s Friyay!!! You know what that means, right? The perfect day to share a summery, sweet cocktail. This is my first time sharing an alcoholic beverage on the blog – eeeek! I’m excited, but also nervous. Lately, my husband has aspired to become a homemade cocktail connoisseur. He bought himself a big, bad book with millions […]

Kale & Goat Cheese Scrambled Eggs

Growing up, I despised breakfast. Most likely because I liked to sleep in until 11 a.m. and cereal was just never my thing. Now I can’t get enough. I love ordering breakfast at restaurants and my husband and I have egg and ham sandwiches way too often.  Lately, we’ve tried to make a point to […]

Barnyard Bagels

Happy Wednesday, friends! I’m so sorry I’ve been absent these past couple of weeks. We’ve had a lot going on around here, including vacation, an inspection on our new home, putting our current home on the market and potty training. It’s a lot and I’ve had many moments of stress, but I’m so thankful for […]

Spring Cheese Board

Two or three months ago, we went to another couple’s house for light appetizers and desserts. They invited us and another couple over. It was so nice being in an adults-only setting with other parents. We broke bread, laughed, and of course, talked about the commonalities among our toddlers and newborns. Not only was the […]

Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta

Yesterday, we got hit with a taste of warm weather and it’s almost as if I could smell spring blooming in the air. We took full advantage of being able to step outside without freezing our buns off. The kids and I walked to the park and when my husband got home, we took another […]

Rotisserie Chicken Tostada

Happy Taco Tuesday!! Or should I say Tostada Tuesday for the sake of this post? If you know me, you know Taco Bell is my ride or die. It’s one of the only fast food restaurants I need in my life (cough, I hate Mcdonald’s cough). I don’t think I could ever give it up. […]

Spaghetti Squash Cacio e Pepe

Last week, my husband and I had a well overdue date night just the two of us and we indulged. There was no carb left behind. We rolled out of there like two human-sized gnocchi. The restaurant we went to is known for their assortment of small plates and entrees and encourages parties to share […]

Brussel Sprout & Kale Salad with Maple Tahini Dressing

I am constantly on the hunt for a good salad. Sometimes when carbs and cheese take over my life, it’s nice to get a break and make healthy choices. I said sometimes, okay? When I meet a good salad, I never ever forget it. I still remember the first salad that rocked my world – […]

French Toast with Mascarpone & Berries

I know, I know… I’ve probably written one too many Valentine’s Day posts, but I just can’t help myself because I have the cutest recipe for you to make for your valentine! Did I mention it’s heart-shaped food? I mean, you can obviously tell by the pictures, but don’t hearts make everything cuter? I love […]
