Homemade Tater Tots with Sweet Smoky Aioli

Homemade Tater Tots with Sweet Smoky Aioli

Something very exciting just happened. By that, I mean something more exciting than making homemade tater tots, which I know, is also very exciting so I’ll get to that in a minute. You guys! I just made the list of Top 100 Clean Eating Blogs! […]

Quinoa Tabouli

Quinoa Tabouli

This weekend, I’ll be hosting a number of my mom’s side of the family for great food (quinoa tabouli!), great games (badminton!) and great conversation. It’s been a year since I’ve seen many of these amazing peeps so it’s about time we make an occasion […]

Maple Bourbon Baked Beans

Maple Bourbon Baked Beans

My adorable nephew came over recently to hang out with auntie and his cousins. I sure miss the days when my kids where that young, snuggly and innocent. Now my not-so-innocent angels are traveling to different states with the grandparents and going off to overnight […]

Thai Cucumber Salad

Thai Cucumber Salad

I told myself I wouldn’t be emotional on my son’s last day of preschool. But here I sit with a small well of tears threatening to spill out of the corner of my eye. He was sent home with a binder of all of his […]

Cilantro Lime Rice

Cilantro Lime Rice

Last weekend, we had a photographer come out to our acreage to do a little family photo shoot. I also had her take some updated pics of me so I can finally update my photos here on the blog (soon!). I was re-living the senior picture experience all […]

Oh boy. My girls are officially on summer vacation and I’m happy they’re around.  Not so happy about all the “I’m bored!” statements that are happening already.  Lucky for them, I have all sorts of fun tasks to solve their boredom (insert maniacal laugh here).  I’m […]

Cheesy Ranch Potatoes

I’m currently sitting at my desk with a chicken on my shoulder watching an exciting lightning storm outside while sipping a small glass of wine. I’m good at multitasking.  The dear hubby is gone on a business trip this week so I’ve been gladly bombarding […]

Grilled Corn with Cilantro Butter

Grilled Corn with Cilantro Butter

Grilled Corn…simple and summery, buttery with a slight smoky flavor, crisp and oh-so-sweet.  This side dish comes with a generous shout out to summer… as in, summer, let’s get this warm weather rockin’ so we can be outside all the time!  I guess I’ll have […]

Brussels Sprouts Sauté

Brussels Sprouts Sauté

Who can resist the cuteness of a little Brussels sprout??  They look and taste sort of like a mini cabbage but my kids need a little convincing of their virtuous qualities. Call it a baby cabbage and they’re at least partially sold… call it baby anything and they suddenly […]

Pear and Parsnip Sauté

Pear and Parsnip Sauté

My dad always enjoyed the weird (read: not kid friendly) vegetables like parsnips, asparagus and eggplant.  They might be the only veggies I actually saw him eat that weren’t potatoes now that I’m thinking about it.  Now that I’m older I realize those veggies aren’t all […]
