At the beginning of the summer my husband and I, along with our 4 kids (ages 2-11) did a vacation up the East Coast and I shared every day on Instagram stories.  During that time I got LOADS of requests to share our itinerary and more info.  Apparently lots of you have considered doing this…

My kids went back to school this week, which means when my alarm goes off in the morning, I actually have to get up instead of hitting the snooze button and checking to see if that cute mouse with a hat filter will ever show back up on Snapchat.  If you’re looking for a few…

A few weeks ago I posted these Bacon Ranch Chicken Sliders and they were SO popular!  I use that same method with a lot of different variations and I figured if you liked those ones so much, you’ll probably like some of the others!  So today, we’re getting our pizza on.  These have all of…

Veggie platters are one of my favorite snacks (and one of my favorite ways to survive late summer.) But I get kind of tired of the typical ranch or dill dips, so I was excited to see this Pesto dip in this month’s Cooking Light. It’s super easy and flavorful and a great way to…

Last week, I posted one of my favorite meal subscription recipes and told you about another recipe from the same service that I absolutely loved. Like, ate this Italian Sausage and Zucchini Linguine for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a late night snack loved (not all the same day…I’m not that intense. Incidentally, the morning I had it for breakfast, I…

One of my favorite ways to come up with new recipes is taking one I already love and changing the flavor profile.  When it comes to sweet stuff, one of the first things I think about is what will happen if you swap out sugars.  Often times simply changing from white sugar to brown sugar…

So meal subscriptions are kind of all the rage right now. When people find out that I get a meal subscription box every week, they’re kind of like, “Ummm…aren’t you supposed to be helping other people figure out what to cook?” And it’s true. I am. But dinner is hard, y’all. I know I need all the help…

When I’ve got tomatoes from the garden I dream about allll the Caprese recipes, all the time.  My favorite way to eat a classic Caprese salad is on slices of toasted baguette, but the other day when I was picking zucchini I realized it might be the perfect size for all those scrumptious garden layers.  I…

So I think I’ve shared before about how I have to be really careful about taking sleeping medication because I have a tendency to do things without realizing it, like that time when I woke up to an inbox full of Etsy notifications that I had purchased baby items (luckily I was pregnant at the time and…

Pie.  The fall holiday season is when pies get all the attention, but I think it’s summertime where they really shine.  The abundance of fresh fruit this time of year basically begs for all the pie things.  Hand Pies, deep dish pies, crumb-topped pies, and my summer favorite- Galettes.   We have a great all-purpose pie crust…
