Restaurant-Style Cornbread


It is wedding week! My baby brother is getting married on Saturday. This month has been just jammed full of excitement, planning, prepping and a sprinkling of stress. Most of the stress seems to be coming from the “spring” weather we are having here in Minnesota. Snow storm after snow storm. However, the weather people […]

Creamy, Dreamy Chocolate Malt Cupcakes

A creamy dreamy chocolate malt with a cherry on top = a dessert dream. I love the flavor of malt. It is one of those flavors that are so hard to explain what it tastes like, but you just know that it tastes good. Soo….for Valentines Day, your next party or your next Tuesday night, […]

Skillet Pizza


Frozen. That is what I am at this very minute. I do love Minnesota, the seasons changing, the northern lakes, that cool crisp falls…but seriously 20 below? I do not like that. In the slightest. Ok, I am done complaining. Lets warm things up with another cast iron skillet recipe. I was inspired by a […]

All the deliciousness of pizza in a new way. This would be a […]

Pomegranate Spinach Salad

Pomegranate Spinach Salad

‘Tis the season for pomegranates. I will admit, I am not a connoisseur of pomegranates. I actually had to look up a YouTube video to see how to get the darn thing open. But once I did, I was in love. The seeds inside the fruit (which is what you eat) are crisp and tart […]

Birthdays and Cupcakes


It has been one day shy of a month. One month since an update. I am horrified. Ok, let’s move on. Over the last couple months, I have been fortunate enough to be invited to two certain cuties birthdays. Brooklynn turned three in September and Brendan turned 6 very very recently. There are two things […]

Cutie-Approved Goldfish-Ranch Snack Mix


Well, hello there. It is me. I am here. I haven’t gone anywhere…and I apologize for the dead air lately. Sometimes, it just happens. Today I have a very delicious and very simple snack mix idea. That is what Monday calls for…simple and delicious (emphasis on the simple). I love salty snacks. I could give […]
