Do you guys ever crave dishes from your childhood? I know that I do … like all the time. Most (all) of them are straight up comfort foods. This is just how it was growing up in the 80s and 90s, and I’m sure many of you can relate. It was all about the meatloaf, …

Perfectly seared sausage patties, sandwiches between two fluffy cinnamon pancakes and then drizzled with about a gallon of maple syrup. Does it get much better than that?! I don’t know what it is about bite-sized food that gets me so excited. I think it’s their all-around cuteness that has me gravitating towards miniature food. I …

I know what you are thinking. It’s about dang time I shared a beer cheese soup recipe. What? Has it been over 2 years that this blog has been live, and I still have yet to post a beer cheese soup recipe? I know, I know. I should be ashamed of myself. I love, love, …

So, how was everyone’s weekend!? How excited are we that it’s Monday?! I for one am not excited that it is Monday, but I am super excited to share this easy and moist carrot cake with you! It is everything you crave in a carrot cake, with a little bit of crunch and a whole …

How do you like all of that alliteration going on? I tried. I really did. I think “B” is officially my favorite letter, and it’s all thanks to this spicy sweet potato galette with broccoli, bacon and balsamic reduction (or maybe “S” is my favorite letter? hmmm..). So I was asking myself the other day, …

I woke up this morning, and the sun wasn’t shining. It was cold and windy, and I finally accepted that summer was quickly coming to an end. It kind of, sort of makes me want to cry. I feel like summer was way too short this year. It wasn’t as hot as it normally gets …
