Concord Grape Jam

I rarely wander into the realm of making homemade jams. Usually I feel like I can buy really yummy stuff (hello, Sarabeth’s) so why would I take all the time to make my own. Then I started getting a farmshare…and when they send concord grapes, you make jam. So for the past two years, I’ve […]

Tropical Berry Coconut Smoothie

I love smoothies in the morning. I wish I made them more. Problem is, I am not a morning person and neither is my toddler, so our mornings are usually mayhem and there is just no flipping way I have my act together enough to whip up a smoothie before work… #lifegoals But on the […]

Blackberry Mint Lemonade

If this glass of refreshingly awesome lemonade doesn’t just scream summer, I don’t know what does. Last weekend we spent an entire, very hot, summer day outside doing yard work and playing. I immediately thought that a tall glass of homemade lemonade would be the perfect drink to have sitting on our porch. My mint […]

Vanilla Cardamom Rhubarb Crumble

I love when rhubarb appears in the grocery store.  It’s just so pretty.  And it’s a sure sign that spring has arrived.  The flavor of it when it bakes with strawberries inside a pie is divine…mmmm, I can almost taste it. When my mom brought over a big bunch of rhubarb last week, I couldn’t […]

Bacon, Peach & Arugula Sandwiches

OMG, this is the best summer sandwich I’ve ever had!  So flippin’ good.  I have never been a huge fan of sandwiches, but I married into a family of sammy fanatics.  So they’ve grown on me over the years, especially my hubby’s ruben (that’s his specialty).  I am now obsessed with Schmidt’s (review to come […]

Honey Banana Smoothie

Tracey at Shutterbean has all sorts of yummy smoothies and milkshakes on her blog.  I want to make all of them…the same day.  Then I stop and realize that would be excessive.  This honey banana flavor is yummy and light…not too sweet, but just right.  And using greek yogurt gives it a protein punch to […]

Preggers Mocktail: Blood Orange Sangria

Um, I miss booze.  Like, a lot.  I didn’t think I’d miss it as much as I do, but man, do I salivate when I see a good cocktail going by at a restaurant.  I also miss wine.  You would think that I was a heavy drinker before getting knocked up, but not really.  I […]

Mixed Berry Smoothie

So, I’m going to share yet another breakfast smoothie.  Forgive me, but I’m sort of obsessed.  I do this thing where I really love something and overload on it, then get sick of it.  Do you do that?  I do it with new songs way too often.  Also with foods, especially of the breakfast variety. […]

Cinnamon Peach Ice Cream

I thought it would be fun to end National Ice Cream Month with a post about delicious cinnamon peach ice cream! One of the items on my summer bucket list is to make 10 different flavors of ice cream this summer.  I’m on number 4, so I have many more to go, but I’m feeling […]
