I’ve had many days lately where I desperately need to clean out my fridge. Whether its from just being so busy that I’m not cooking every day, or that my mom is always bringing over goodies to stock my fridge, the produce drawers are usually bursting at the seams! I had a big bag of […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Hand Pies

Bite sized pies!  They are adorable, and tasty.  Less work than making a full sized pie, but tastes just as good.  Winning.  This Handheld Pies cookbook is so fun…I’d like to make everything in there. My pies leaked some of the filling, so they weren’t as plump and juicy.  Next time I’ll have to be […]

Buttermilk Pie

Lauren made this delicious pie for Mother’s Day brunch and I just had to share.  It was really delicious.  We had no idea what to expect, but it was the perfect balance of sweetness and creaminess.  It was perfect with a plate of fresh berries…we skipped the whipped cream.  We all felt it was a […]

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 […]

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Even though I made these cupcakes for Easter Sunday, I still think they are worth sharing.  I couldn’t eat carrot cake all of the time, but in the springtime I really do love it.  I totally adore anything that has cream cheese icing on it, if we’re being honest.  The cake stays really moist and […]

Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies.  I could eat it several times a week, and in the spring/early summer, I usually do.  There are just so many great ways to prepare it, my favorite just being roasted with some garlic and cheese.  This healthy little salad is a really fabulous way to enjoy asparagus, […]

Lemon & Arugula Pasta

This is my new favorite spring/summer pasta dish.  It’s so light and delicious.  The lemon is bright and fresh, the garlic and red pepper flakes give it a zing and the arugula balances everything with it’s peppery flavor.  And well, everything gets better when you top it with a heap of yummy cheese, right?  Angel […]
