Kara came to town! Yay! If you all are wondering, Kara is my sister and she’s super cool (sometimes). She has quite the sweet tooth so I had to whip her up something extra special yesterday for her arrival. We celebrated with roasted chicken and carrots, but the dessert was the best part. So great …

So, if you are anything like me, you just crave breakfast every once in a while. Actually, I think I crave breakfast more than every once in a while. I do eat breakfast, but it’s not usually until almost lunch time because I am absolutely never hungry early in the morning. So my chances of …

Yes, that’s right. Peanut. Butter. Truffles. Who doesn’t love a good truffle? They are the perfect little bite-sized treat to attack almost any and all of those sweet cravings. What was so surprising to me the first time I made them was how easy they were to make! Sure they require a little down time …

Well it’s the weekend, and we were craving something super sweet and breakfast(y). We haven’t done a true breakfast in a while, so what the heck. We combined all of our favorite ingredients into one scrumptious pancake. These buttermilk pancakes are stuffed with bananas, walnuts and dark chocolate chips, and it’s everything you could imagine …

Happy New Year Everyone! Now it’s time to eat! Now I know there are many traditions out there. Growing up, we were the pork and sauerkraut type of people. And although I love sauerkraut, Zach hates the stuff. I tried to make it for him last year, and well that was just completely unsuccessful. He …
