Do you like magic tricks? Oh, you do? Me, too! ...more

Easy Mini Tortilla Pizzas

Is it too late to talk about what happened last weekend? We’re in Wednesday after all, so I may be missing the boat on this one. But, I’ve finally caught my breath from the excitement and wanted to let you know ....more

Tex-Mex Chicken Taco Flatbread

Every good pizza and flatbread begins with a good dough. Since I’m no pro baker, getting the best part of a pizza right has always been a bit tricky. But, I’ve had decent success with homemade dough over the years… and until recently had yet to come across something just as good from a store ....more

3-Ingredient Strawberry Tart with Lemon Whipped Cream

My motto in the spring and summer is “easy does it.” The holidays and months surrounding them can be such a blur that, come spring, I just wanna let my hair down. And in every sense of the phrase, I do! Never has my easy livin’ philosophy applied more than it does this year, as we’re preparing to welcome our first baby ....more

Chopped Cucumber Caprese Salad

There’s no flavor combination I love in the world more than mozzarella, tomatoes and basil mixed with a tangy balsamic vinaigrette.

There’s just no appetizer as easy, elegant and essentially “summer” tasting as the combination of all three. With a drizzle of balsamic reduction, each bite is a little bit of bliss! ...more

Angel Food Cupcakes

Otherwise known as, portion control for the uncontrollable. I always cut myself a big, pillowy slice of angel food cake, smother it with cream and berries, go to town… do you? The cake is just so light and fluffy that you feel like the calories don’t count ....more

Cheesy Ham, Cheddar and Scallion Quiche

When we have guests over for an extended stay, I take the opportunity to try all sorts of treats on them! And fatten them up. Because I have way too many skinny people in my life, and they need to be fed ....more

Flourless Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies with Sea Salt

I’ve always thought, if there’s one comfort food that shouldn’t be messed with, it’s the chocolate chip cookie. Sure, stuff it with caramel and sprinkle it with sea salt. Mix in peanut butter, pretzels, M&Ms and sandwich a scoop of vanilla ice cream between two ....more
