Easter Tea on a Sunny Afternoon

Being raised Catholic, Easter was always an important holiday in our household. Dying eggs the weekend before Easter was always an event - we would use several different egg dying kits along with feathers, glitter and other craft items we would buy at the store (and this was before Pinterest). For a few years, we … Continue reading Easter Tea on a Sunny Afternoon

Maca Root Energy Bites

Where did the first two months of this year go? I can't believe it's March already! I had every intention of posting this recipe weeks ago but things got super crazy and I just kept putting it off; however, when I woke up today, I promised myself to get this crossed off my to-do list. … Continue reading Maca Root Energy Bites

New Year’s Eve Pasta Aioli

Happy New Year's Eve! I can't believe that the last day of the year is here. Where did 2018 go? It's been a pretty amazing year for me - one of the best, in fact. I launched this blog, saw my favorite Broadway play, Les Miserables, when it came to Dallas, took Brad to New … Continue reading New Year’s Eve Pasta Aioli

Soup Season Has Arrived

Soup season is here! According to my Granda Mary, it's always soup season but eating soup in 100+ degree weather isn't very appetizing. The cooler temps are starting to make appearances in Texas and it's a lovely break from the heat. Soup is a fall and winter staple for us. I like to make a … Continue reading Soup Season Has Arrived

Easy Pesto

At the beginning of the past two summers, we planted a little spice container garden on the back patio. This year, we planted a lot of basil, thyme, and rosemary. We thought we had bought mint that we could eat, but discovered we actually bought catnip! That is supposed to keep the mosquitos away, but … Continue reading Easy Pesto

Quick Pasta Pomodoro

When I was single, cooking was something I didn't do on a daily basis. Cooking for one is really hard. I would cook a "real meal" on Sunday, along with a pan of baked chicken and vegetables to eat during the week. The problem is that I'm kind of finicky about leftovers and don't like … Continue reading Quick Pasta Pomodoro

Saying Good-Bye To Summer…sort of

I can't believe that it's September - where did the summer go? We had a great summer. We traveled a little, started some house projects, my parents came to visit, and I launched this blog. However, in Dallas it still feels like summer. Our summer temps usually stick around through September so it's hard to … Continue reading Saying Good-Bye To Summer…sort of

Kale is the Super Hero of Foods

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's....kale? What??? That's right, kale is the super hero of foods. It's got so many nutritional benefits, we should be eating kale on a regular basis. I try and make it about once a week. Just like the versatile Brussels sprouts, kale can be prepared a variety of ways. … Continue reading Kale is the Super Hero of Foods

The Versatile Brussels Sprout

When I was younger, I did not like Brussels sprouts. But, I don't really know too many kids that like Brussels sprouts. They smell funky when cooking and can have a bitter taste if not cooked properly. As a result, my mom rarely made them. Our vegetable of choice was steamed broccoli with a little … Continue reading The Versatile Brussels Sprout
