Gluten-Free, Hashbrown Crust Quiche

I am not a chef, not even close. I don’t even have a love for cooking, my sister got those genes … and mad skills. Let me tell you! When I am old and gray I pray she takes me in and keeps my belly full with her amazing recipes. She is only 6 years my junior, but […]

Green Monster Smoothie

For a long time I was mega scared to sip on green smoothies. They were just so … green!!! It’s like, I wanted to be healthy and love them, but green liquids felt borderline sketchy. But, one day while visiting a friend in Seattle, she introduced offered to blend me up her famous Green Monster […]

Blueberry Blintzes

With Spring around the corner I’m all “goodbye oatmeal, hello fresh flowers and brunch perfect recipes”! And that, my loves, is why my sister and I plated up blueberry blintzes for breakfast yesterday. Hannah is visiting from Texas this week and crepes/blintzes are her specialty. They’re a little time consuming, but totally worth it. Blintzes taste just […]

Banana Apple Oat Muffins

It’s not a secret that my Max struggles with food. Well, not all food, just healthy food. He loves chocolate and carbs. I guess he is like me … but with less self-control. Breakfasts are especially a struggle. He does like scrambled eggs, but honestly, we don’t always have time for a hot breakfast around […]

French Toast Casserole

It’s seriously the coziest breakfast to have ready to go (I recommend prepping the night before) for family gatherings and holidays. Honestly, just looking at it is making my mouth water while I check the pantry for ingredients! I first met French […]

Today is a day for memory lane. Walk with me … Back in our college days, Dominic and I were living in a school-sponsored apartment complex. Read, we used our student loans to pay rent; so convenient, so dumb. My front door faced his back porch in neighboring buildings and thanks to our interaction in a number […]

Sour Cream Pancakes

This summer our pastor spoke quite a bit about building community and being proactive in our lives beyond church. I’ll admit, I often find myself overwhelmed with my day to day duties as a mom and the idea of “building” and being “proactive” sounds like too big of a commitment for my schedule. Just the same, […]
