S’mores Bars

On weekends when the stars align and my boyfriend isn’t catering or working crazy hours at his restaurant, we “glamp”. I use the term “glamp” loosely. “Glamping” normally consists of luxurious accommodations and although we are technically sleeping in an RV, ours is by far the crappiest on site. She was built before I hit […]

Citrus White Wine Sangria

My best friend eloped this weekend. I’ve never been a bridesmaid, so when she asked me to be her witness I decided that this made me her unofficial maid of honor. This may have been a bit presumptuous of me but screw it; if I was ever going to be in a wedding party it […]

Spicy Mango Chutney

Our household has a very love-hate relationship with mango chutney. While I would smother that perfectly balanced sweet and spicy shit onto just about anything, my male counterpart doesn’t like it at all. I’m not exactly sure what it is about the chutney that he finds so offensive but the silver lining to his unwavering […]

Unlike the endless battle we have over eating their vegetables, I’ve […]

This is particularly true during the warmer months when I’m craving something cool and crunchy. I reach for salads until we are hit with “soup season” (aka […]

Double Chocolate Cookies

Guys, I have a confession to make; I watch a lot of Sesame Street. Like, a lot. Segments like The Letter of the Day and Elmo the Musical keep my baby’s attention like nothing else. Now, before you rip me a new one for childhood screen time and its negative impact on my baby’s development, […]

Honey Garlic Pork Tenderloin

Pork; the other white meat. Generally, I enjoy pork. My partner can fry a pork chop so perfectly that I almost prefer it to steak (almost, but not quite) and my mother-in-law’s picnic ham is Sunday dinner perfection. Pork tenderloin though? Well, it usually sucks. Not to offend tenderloin fans but there, I said it. […]
