This month, I picked a seasonal topic for my Kitchen Bootcamp challenge… Salads! This is the time of year where I generally get more lettuce than I know what to do with from my CSA, so I was happy for some salad inspiration!

I’m sure you all know the lovely Aimee from Simple Bites and Under the High Chair… And, if you don’t, you really should!  Today, a few of us are hosting a virtual baby shower to help her celebrate the her new baby girl on the way. One of the things I enjoy about baby showers is…

Friday Favorites – Pinterest Edition (Episode 124)

I often feel like I get in a rut with my Friday Favorites… It has nothing to do with the blogs that I read (they are always full of fun and fresh ideas!) and everything to do with me. The thing is, I find myself going back to the same blogs for the same types…

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hass Avocado Board featuring Hass Avocados for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I happen to be one of those women who loves football season. This year I’m even in a fantasy football league! But, even if you’re not a football fan (and I…

Gazpacho

Last weekend, my husband and I watched the movie Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.  How’s that for a Monday morning blog post intro? It’s relevant, though… I promise! You see, we have a few friends who have done the whole “juicing” diet thing. Some have had good results, others have ended up not feeling so…

This time of year, I often start experimenting with different flavors of pizza.  Sure, I love traditional pizza with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, but once we start getting fresh ingredients from our CSA, I can’t resist using some of them on pizza. It’s still early in the season right now, but we’ve already had…

This week has been a crazy one! I’m writing this post early (on Wednesday) since I’m headed to New York City on Thursday and Friday. I’ve been getting ready for my trip, trying to get some work done, and also doggy sitting for my parents this week.  Needless to say, my house has been a bit…

Game Day Guacamole (WFMW)

There’s a pretty big football game coming up next weekend. The Super Bowl… You may have heard of it?

So, this week I thought I’d share my quick and easy go-to recipe for guacamole. No game day party is complete without some chips and guac, right?

I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I are big fans of Chipotle Mexican Grill. We especially love their guacamole, so I’ve been on a quest to come up with a recipe that rivals theirs. Every time I make guacamole at home, my hubby determines whether it is “Chipotle good” or not… And, I am happy to announce that this recipe has gained his approval.

Friday Favorites – Episode 66

It’s Friday again, which can only mean one thing… Well, maybe a few things.  You may be looking forward to the weekend and the big plans you have, but I was talking about my Friday Favorites!  Sure, that might not be quite as excited as what you had in mind, but checking out these blog…
