Valentine’s Day is coming up and if one of your traditions is serving your family a Valentine’s Day breakfast, this Sparkling Citrus Punch is an easy, festive drink.  See, I used to always make everything from scratch and I kind of thought shortcuts were the cheater’s way out. And then I had kids and then…

One of my favorite flavor combinations is cinnamon and chocolate.  During my college days, I spent most of my paychecks on giant bags of chocolate covered cinnamon bears from the BYU book store.  They are the BEST.  I had those flavors in mind when I set out to make a munchable-sharable-irresistible treat with those same flavors. …

With several favorite healthier cream-sauces on this site like our Guiltless Alfredo and our Cauliflower Cream Sauce, it dawned on me that we’ve neglected to talk about real-deal Alfredo sauce.  Ironically “real” Alfredo doesn’t actually involve cream, but we’re talking about what we Americans refer to as Alfredo and it’s this lusciously indulgent cream sauce…

I’ve talked a lot about how it took me a long to settle down in Louisiana after living in Utah for basically the first 27 years of my life. This was never supposed to be a long-term thing–three years at most, and then we’d be on to something else. But those other things kept getting…

So I kind of agonized about whether or not to post this recipe. It’s one of those things that I love to eat, but is hard to photograph. It seems too simple. That little voice inside me is like, you’re a freak, Kate, no one else eats cooked spinach. And then I was like, NEW…

Happy New Year!  We always love taking a couple weeks off at the end of each year (and start of the next).  Kate and I love having the time off to spend with our families, and I always come back around this time feeling refreshed and renewed with lots of great ideas to share with…
