Pear, Honey, and Cheddar Biscuits thumbnail

These tasty little Pear, Honey, and Cheese Biscuits are an easy appetizer for a party, but don't be surprised if you eat enough to turn them into a main dish. The Mr. and I have a funny little habit of turning appetizers into entrees. When we go out to eat, we love to order several [...]

Slow Cooker Rosemary and Mushroom Pot Roast thumbnail

Let the crock pot do all the work for you with this savory, comforting Slow Cooker Rosemary Mushroom Pot Roast. This weekend I made another wedding cake. After my first wedding cake, I swore I would never do it again, so agreeing to this one was really against my better judgment. But when the couple [...]

Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

Apple Crumb Coffee Cake thumbnail

Ease into fall with this buttery coffee cake studded with apples and finished with a crunchy cinnamon crumb topping. This morning when I walked out the door the air felt...different. I was wearing shorts and a T-shirt and while I wasn't uncomfortably cold, something made me run back inside and grab a sweatshirt. Slipping into a [...]

Panko Crusted Chicken Piccata

Panko Crusted Chicken Piccata thumbnail

Crunchy Panko Crusted Chicken Piccata gets a simple lemon butter dressing for a dish that's satisfying and elegant. Sometime this weekend, a mouse decided it would be super fun to crawl beneath our floor boards and croak. We don't know when or how exactly our uninvited house guest burrowed his way beneath the floors of our [...]

Fish Taco Salads with Sriracha Lime Dressing

Fish Taco Salads with Sriracha Lime Dressing thumbnail

In food, as in life, sometimes you don't get it right the first time. These Fish Taco Salad Bowls took a few times to get just right, but trust me when I tell you they were worth the wait! I remember the first time I heard about fish tacos. I was in college (I know, I [...]

Grilled Flank Steak Sandwiches with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms #WeekdaySupper thumbnail

These Grilled Flank Steak Sandwiches piled high with caramelized onions and mushrooms are just my way of saying "I love you." Have you ever heard of the five love languages? It was a really popular book back in the 90s, or at least it was in the church circles I was a part of. The book [...]

Skillet Peach Slump With Maple Caramel Sauce

Skillet Peach Slump With Maple Caramel Sauce thumbnail

This Peach Slump with Maple Caramel Sauce is my seasons-change-without-my-permission compromise. I refuse to let peach season go, but this Maple Caramel Sauce has me ready to break out my boots and start planning my Halloween costume. Guys, I am just giddy about this dessert. It's got a funky name, and it doesn't look pretty, but dang [...]

Roasted Tomatoes and Goat Cheese + Thoughts on Ferguson

Roasted Tomatoes and Goat Cheese + Thoughts on Ferguson thumbnail

Today, I'm sharing this simple summer appetizer made with sweet roasted cherry tomatoes and a mound of warm tangy goat cheese. Plus, I share why I believe in the power of neighbor food. Friends, I have to be honest. My heart has been heavy the past few weeks. The weight of the news coming out of Iraq, [...]

Buttermilk Syrup

Buttermilk Syrup thumbnail

This Buttermilk Syrup will take your breakfast game to the next level.  For the past few years I've met with a small group of women for breakfast once a week. It's a fantastic excuse to eat pancakes on a Wednesday. What started as a small group of five women and two kids has quickly exploded [...]

Preserve the taste of summer with this Easy Garden Fresh Tomato Basil Soup. Come January, you'll be thanking yourself!

Kahlua Mocha Milkshakes

Calling all chocolate and coffee lovers! These boozy Kahlua Mocha Milkshakes are perfect for special occasions or, ya know, a random Thursday. The Mr. and I are celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary this month, and the occasion has me feeling rather sentimental. I've been tearily leafing through our wedding album and chuckling at the fresh [...]

Cherry Almond Crumble

Cherry Almond Crumble thumbnail

Plump sweet cherries are complimented by a crunchy oatmeal, almond, and cinnamon crumble.  I have a tendency to be a tad overzealous when it comes to in-season produce. The first time I see sweet cherries appear at the grocery store, I go temporarily insane and decide I need eight bags. Now, the Mr. and I [...]

Beef Kafta with Tahini Sauce #SundaySupper

Beef Kafta with Tahini Sauce #SundaySupper thumbnail

The unusual combination of spices found in these Lebanese Beef Kafta pita sandwiches will have the whole family coming back for more.  Poor ground beef. It's the vacuum cleaner of the beef world. Dependable, necessary, but not particularly glamorous. I mean, do you know anyone who goes out of their way to use their vacuum cleaner? [...]

Tabbouleh Salad

Tabbouleh Salad thumbnail

This classic Tabbouleh Salad is so refreshing and a great way to use up garden fresh mint and parsley! The other day I was watching Family Feud while cooking, because apparently that's what you do when you're home at 3 in the afternoon. Or maybe it's not and I just have no idea what normal [...]

Spicy Asian Zucchini (10 Minute Side Dish)

This Spicy Asian Zucchini can be whipped up in 10 minutes and makes a great summer side dish.  I firmly believe there is a direct correlation between the amount of zucchini we have available to us, and how excited I am to use it. At the beginning of the season when the first small zucchinis show [...]

Gluten free and vegetarian, this spicy Shakshuka recipe is a satisfying one pot meal for any time of year. This shakshuka has been a long time coming.
