All summer, my kids ask for food all day long. And if they’re not asking for food, they’re asking about food. “What’s for breakfast?” (If you’re old enough to ask me, you’re old enough to make it yourself. I’m teaching my kids to be self-sufficient or something.) “What’s for dinner?” “What’s for dinner tomorrow?” They’re like my…

So you know all those memes that are going around that are like, “On August 31st, at the stroke of midnight, everything turns to pumpkin spice!”? Well. For me, it all turns to apple. I don’t seem to feel about pumpkin spice the way 95% of women over the age of 13 do. I mean,…

Wendy’s has a long-established pattern of breaking my heart. They’ll introduce something new, and me being the perfect-always-cook-at-home-from-scratch food blogger that I am (ha!), I will discover it and fall in love with it, only to have it yanked away from me a few painful months later. Those Greek and Caesar pitas from when I…

Of all the foods that make me feel most nostalgic of childhood summers, homemade ice cream has to be #1.  When I was a kid we had one of those big hand-cranked machines that you packed with rock salt.  Anyone else have one of those?  There is nothing quite like the taste of freshly made…

Note: This post is not sponsored–it’s simply an informational post in the vein of what used to be “The Scoop”–kitchen products we use and love! We frequently get asked what our favorite cookware is. Usually, the person asking is either someone who’s getting married (or buying cookware for someone who’s getting married) or someone who’s looking to replace…

Yes.  You read that correctly.  Someone’s about to put choc-o-late all up in your jam! It’s your basic fresh raspberry jam, with just a hint of bittersweet chocolate that makes the most amazing, rich, complex jam I’ve ever had.  Honestly one of the best things I’ve made in a while, and it’s SO easy!  This isn’t…

We’ve talked before about how I love sugar cookies, but the whole extensive sugar cookie process means they pretty much never happen for me. The chilling. The rolling. The cutting. The rolling of the scraps. The decorating. The mess. The older I get, the more I’m like, “Cookies and Netflix now, please.”  Not only are…

So you may have noticed that when we re-designed our blog, we kind of did away with The Scoop section of our blog, mostly because with the way the new site was designed, we couldn’t really have a page that didn’t show up on the main page anymore (and also because, even between the two…

Let’s just take a moment of silence and imagine ourselves eating one of these: Sweet and tart lemon glaze drips down the perfect flaky, sugar-crusted pie crust while fresh summer berries burst through. They’re magnificent, if I don’t say so myself.  I had this idea because I’m teaming up with Crisco® to help inspire home cooks…
