  • Brown-Butter Toffee Blondies

    Happy last Friday of the month of May! I have been slowly working my way back in the kitchen and been trying to figure out the rhythm while juggling a newborn and a toddler! This month has been an absolute blur to me, and I have been loving my precious time at home with my […]

  • Tiramisu

    There are a few desserts that my husband and I typically like to always order whenever we dine out at restaurants. There’s the sinfully gooey pizookie (giant cookie cooked in a mini pizza pan), a warm slice of apple pie (ala mode is a must for me), or the creamy and indulgent cheesecake (because making a […]

  • Favorite Turkey Burger

    Springtime has to be my favorite season of them all. The blooming flowers, spring flowers and growing gardens, and the fantastic sunny weather.

  • Balsamic and Beer-Braised Short Ribs with Parsnip Puree

    This meal is wonderful for entertaining a small dinner crowd and would make a fantastic Easter dinner, if you were looking for something outside the norm of the typical Easter ham meal. The parsnip puree truly makes this dish as well, and I highly suggest making it. It’s way better than mashed potatoes and pairs […]

  • Strawberry Meyer Lemon Cream Pie

    Do you know what day it is today? It’s March 14, otherwise known as Pi Day not to be confused with National Pie Day, which is celebrated on January 23. Yes, I’m totally math geeking out today because I’m celebrating a Greek symbol  “π” which is used in mathematics to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle […]
