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 […]

Patriotic Watermelon Fruit Pizza

This summer has greeted us with incredible weather so far. We’ve enjoyed being able to eat outside, go to parks and just spend our weekends outdoors. One of my favorite parts about this cool summer weather is being able to keep our windows open throughout the day. There’s something about that summer breeze flowing through […]

Sea Salt Brownies

Happy Friday everyone!! I am going to keep this post short and sweet because I’ve been getting to bed super late the past couple of weeks and I had planned to go to bed early tonight (I normally write my posts the night before I post them), but as I was about to hit the […]

Pasta with Mizithra Cheese

Saturday marked two years since my Yiayia’s passing. It’s funny how time works. In a way it numbs us to what has happened and our new life without someone, but no matter how many days or years fly by, the heartache of not being with that person still remains. I hate the fact that it’s […]

Shredded Chicken & Potato Taquitos

A couple of days ago I tested this recipe and desperately needed something from the store. While I was getting some of the food prepared, I noticed there was a car right outside our driveway. It was a guy who looked like he was having trouble with his car. Being the nervous wreck that I […]
