If you guessed from Wednesday’s post that today’s Flashback Friday would be Grilled Chicken and Veggie Skewers, you’re basically a genius. This has long been one of our family’s favorite meals–we know the weather is warming up when this recipe works its way into our rotation. We love it for a weeknight meal as well…

If you missed this earlier, I started adding some local restaurant reviews to the site.   I get a lot of questions about dining in my area and I’d love to have a place to point people to as I also have fun discovering great new finds.  Once I add enough to this section, I’ll create a…

So this recipe is kind of a Flashback Friday (Way-Back Wednesday??) kind of recipe because it’s been on the blog for a long time, but it’s tucked within another another recipe and this dressing is so good that it deserves it’s very own spot. I love that I pretty much always have the ingredients for this dressing, it…

There are some recipes on this blog that we share and literally never go back to them.  Not because they aren’t good, but because- well, there are over 1000 recipes here and it’s hard to keep up.  Then there are others that are staples in our own homes and we make over and over again….

We have quite a few out-of-the-box egg decorating ideas (and when I say “we,” I mean Sara; let’s just say fancy egg decorating is kind of traditionally outside of my wheelhouse)–we have these dinosaur eggs and these egg ornaments and, of course, these eggs that are literally dyed in men’s silk ties and kind of took the…

It’s Flashback Friday time again and I’m so excited to finally be able to share this recipe with people without feeling embarrassed about the terrible photography (including a really top-notch green tint job I did to the cookies themselves when I was “editing” the pictures. Let’s just say I’ve learned a lot over the past 8 years….

Sometimes my dad gets on these kicks where he discovers a book or a movie and he will buy all us kids a copy of the book or harass us until we finally see the movie. The summer after my husband and I got married, my dad started up again–these were the days before group texts, so instead,…

This bread is most appropriate for this week because of St. Patrick’s Day.  It’s actually a recipe for Irish Soda Bread, but I’m not calling it that because I feel like a lot of people aren’t quite sure what that’s all about.  But when we’re talking beautiful crusty rustic bread that’s soft, fluffy and flavorful…

Sara and I are well-documented lovers of fitness wear. In fact, this basically sums up my life… In all fairness, I do hit the gym most mornings (the last month, also known as the Jones Plague 2016, excluded), but then I’m like, “Dangit, my kids will be off the bus in 17 minutes and I still…

As promised, today I’m sharing the Brazilian Rice that goes with the Black Beans I posted on Wednesday.  I’m pretty sure rice is one of the foods that is eaten regularly in every culture on earth.  And it seems every place has a different standard way of cooking it.  We ate rice a lot when…
