Caramel Popcorn

I realized, just yesterday, that Halloween is two weeks away. Did fall sneak up on anyone else, or is it just my perpetual lack of sleep catching up with me? I feel like I blinked, and then summer was over ....more

Salted Chocolate-Caramel Bars

Today’s treat is doubly sweet. Not only are these bars delicious, but they’re raising money for a good cause. This post is helping to bake a difference with OXO to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer ....more

Chocolate Cupcakes with Quick Chocolate Buttercream

There’s a part of parenthood that I feel like is largely forgotten about these days – the village. I’m sure you’ve all heard the saying “It takes a village to raise a child.” There was a time when multiple generations all lived together or very close together. I’m not talking like hundreds of years ago, either ....more

Crispy Potato and Chorizo Tacos

There’s been a lot of talk about tacos recently. If you’re like me and think about tacos a lot on a regular day, then this has probably made you crave them more than ever. I don’t know about you, but I’m all for access to more tacos ....more

Pasta with Bacon, Corn and Tomatoes

I know pretty much everyone has moved on to pumpkin and all things fall, but I’m not quite ready to let go of summer just yet. This summer has been one of my favorites. It’s been almost three months since Leo made his grand entrance to the world ....more

Leo’s arrival, coupled with our desire to soak up these long summer nights, has meant our meals have been less involved than usual ....more

Peanut Butter “Cookie Dough” Bites

With less than three weeks to go until my due date, I’ve been preparing by making a lot of food to store in the freezer. We have plenty of quick-fix meals that will likely be in heavy rotation when the baby arrives, so I’ve been focusing on breakfasts and desserts. Clara wakes up ready to eat every single day, and I know I’ll be feeling the same way when I’m sleep deprived and nursing a newborn ....more

Parmesan Chicken Cutlets

Spring and the longer days that come with it make me very reluctant to spend too much time inside cooking dinner. I like that the extra light gives me a chance to snap a picture before dinner, but really I’d rather be enjoying the warm weather and sunshine outside with Eric and Clara. And that’s precisely what I’ve been doing since warm weather made its reappearance recently ....more
