The weather has been cold and clear here for the past week, resulting in frosty mornings and gorgeous (albeit early) sunsets. I have been having daydreams of snuggling up in front of a crackling fire and drinking hot buttered rum. Unfortunately, we don’t have a fire place, and I’ve never even tasted hot buttered rum […]
I love to cook, but every year, sometime between late July and early August, my enthusiasm starts to wane. I get distracted by other things, and it seems a shame to heat up the house by turning on the stove. Plus, with all the fresh produce available, I’m usually content to just graze. Do raspberries […]
It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with honey, and this cornbread is one of my favorite ways to indulge my obsession. It’s moist and delicious with a golden brown crust. It’s perfect alongside a bowl of soup or a simple salad. I made it last week to go with my ‘Wild Kale & Baby Dill […]

Tips & tricks for making adorable and delicious mini pies!
The idea for this cake has been kicking around in my brain for the past couple of weeks. I kept meaning to make a ‘practice cake’ before Easter since I was planning to make this for Easter brunch. Life got in the way though and I never go around to it (what else is new?!), […]
Fruit snacks have become a major point of contention in our household, and I’d be willing to bet we’re not the only ones with this problem. The debate goes something like this – Small child: “But they’re healthy, mom! They’re fruit.” Me: “You already had some with lunch, and just because they say “fruit” doesn’t […]
This recipe is amazing and always gets rave reviews (plus, it’s super easy)!
