Miso Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Wow! It has been a minute since I posted anything on the blog!! I think May was my last post. I really can't believe it's been that long because the time has flown by over here. This was an intentional break. Back in May, hubby and I decided to get in touch with our realtor [...]

Kale Summer Salad

Kale Summer Salad

I have a confession...I love having friends and family over, hosting dinner parties & BBQs and cooking for lots of people. Problem...I'm not actually very good at it! I mean, the food is great and I'd like to think we create a fun environment but every single time, I spend a lot of the time [...]

Truffle Mac & Cheese

Truffle Mac & Cheese

This recipe incorporates truffle oil and a crispy topping, and makes beautiful dish for your holiday table. The flavor is subtle, which is [...]

Fall Harvest Salad

Fall Harvest Salad

My friend Janine texted me one day about a homemade salad dressing, saying that I HAD to try it. Of course I believed that it would be tasty and that I would like it, but for whatever reason, I didn't try out the recipe. A few weeks later, Janine and her hubby were at our [...]

Cornbread Stuffing

Cornbread Stuffing

Recipe #1 for a Thanksgiving feast! I have to admit, I've only cooked big holiday meals a handful of times, so I'm certainly no expert but I do know that I'm a perfectionist, a bit controlling (do not comment, mom or husband!) and I don't like surprises in the kitchen when I'm entertaining. So I [...]

Sweet Potato Fries w/Lime Mayo

Sweet Potato Fries w/Lime Mayo

I am really struggling with my time management this week. Do you ever feel extremely overwhelmed with everything you need to do but yet the overwhelming feeling makes you just want to ignore everything rather than motivate you to get it all done? Most of the time, I feel like I'm pretty good at self-motivating and checking things off my [...]
