homemade hummus

2018 has been the summer of cheeseboard dinners in our house and I love it. As someone who loves grazing, small snacks, and variety, a good appetizer spread is one of my favorite ways to have a meal. Each time the selection is slightly different, and it has been fun to experiment with different combinations,…

s’mores cookies

It is the week of 4th of July, which means it is high time for our annual s’mores inspired recipe! S’mores cookies are my new favorite way to enjoy the flavors of the summertime treat without having to start up a fire to roast marshmallows or going to bed with bonfire hair (you feel me?)….

This refreshing grapefruit spritzer is the perfect addition to your Mother’s Day brunch or graduation celebration this weekend. I love how fresh and bubbly it is. It is great at any time of day, and can be kept as a mocktail, or spritzed up with some champagne for a cocktail. I don’t know how I…

caramelized lemon tart and the story of our lemon tree

This lemon tart has been two years in the making. Not to scare you, you will be able to make yours in one afternoon, but ours began when we brought a lemon tree home more than two years ago. We got the tree when we found out we were going to move and would have…

the perfect irish soda bread

One of the goals on my 60 before 30 list is making yeasted bread. In my many years of baking, yeast breads are one category that I have not yet mastered. Irish soda bread, which uses baking soda instead of yeast as a leavening agent almost seems like a stepping stone into the world of…

healthy breakfast cookies

Tis’ the season for new resolutions and healthy eating. While I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions, I do like having a healthy reset after an indulgent holiday season. Healthy breakfast cookies are the perfect solution. Often times we struggle with healthy eating not because we are unsure of what is healthy and what is…

sparkling pomegranate punch cocktails

We are almost halfway through December – are you holiday partied out yet? I have been to a few parties and gatherings, and have a few more on the docket before Christmas, but I’m feeling good about the pace so far. Some years my introverted self gets overwhelmed with all of the holiday get-togethers. I…
