About a year ago, I decided to try eating more real food and work in organic fruits and vegetables when possible. I’m not a strict “clean eater” by any means, but I have been enjoying making more of my own recipes and buying less processed store-bought food. When I first started doing this, Dan agreed but was definitely a bit hesitant.
One week until Halloween! Do you have your costume picked out? Are you and your spouse dressing up together or did you each pick your own fun outfit to celebrate the day? This year, my husband and I don’t have any costumes. No Halloween parties to attend and I’m not sure if we will be getting any trick-or-treaters. Of course, that doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy the holiday! We will be watching a scary movie, munching on yummy candy and drinking these Pomegranate S’Cream Sodas – a bloody good treat!
In February I introduced you to the new way we are eating healthier dinners at home: Home Chef! We have enjoyed every single meal we’ve had delivered and love all of the new options they keep adding each week. Plus, they seem to have one of the lowest cost meal plans around. You can read […]
Were you aware that National S’mores Day is coming up soon? Yep, it is celebrated every year on August 10! As I mentioned in my last recipe post, s’mores always make me think of summers when I was growing up. After sharing my Sweet & Salty S’mores Brownies with you, I couldn’t stop thinking about […]
It is funny how food can bring back memories. When I think about summers growing up, I remember ice pops that turned my mouth strange colors and nibbling on those little candy dots attached to a paper strip. You know the ones I’m talking about? You’d bite them off and end up swallowing scraps of paper in the process. But most of all, I think of s’mores. The taste of chocolate and marshmallow always reminds me of summers at my grandparents’ cabin in the Poconos.
The hot July weather is ramping up! I love the summer and really enjoy the warm weather. Of course, that doesn’t mean that I don’t look for ways to cool off. We love going to the pool and our air conditioning is pumping the cool breeze indoors. When we’re outdoors during the day, I like […]
Summer afternoons call for one main cooking event–an outdoor barbecue. The roasting (using charcoal) of succulent meat, and the fondness of beer, are all in a day’s work of newlywed bonding. Come dinnertime, you and your spouse could be wallowing in the sweet fruits of your labor. Unfortunately, this traditional method of slow-cooking meat is […]
For a special treat, I will make something more than coffee and Dan and I will eat breakfast in the sunroom. We open all of the windows and enjoy the breeze while we eat. Recently I made these awesome grain-free waffles for breakfast in the sunroom. I like making waffles during the warm weather because it doesn’t involve sweating over a hot stove.
Summer is a big party season! Memorial Day is coming up this weekend, then 4th of July, then Labor Day. Plus there are pool parties, block parties and barbecues all summer long. If you throw your own summer party, you definitely need some easy and delicious appetizers to serve your guests.
Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? I know we are always ready for some quiche in our house—we’ve had it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! It’s also a great picnic dish partnered with a nice white wine. This quiche is packed with spinach, Italian sausage, and more for a nutritionally full meal. You can make […]
