It’s Sunday, and you know what that means… #SundaySupper. Today we’re celebrating #SundaySupper with LAND O LAKES® in honor of their new Olive Oil & Sea Salt butter. Summertime is my favorite time of the year. There’s an abundance of fresh produce, lazy days spent on the deck with family, and outdoor cooking- my...

Beef, Donuts, and a Vacation!

I’m back! It’s one of those bitter sweet moments. I love being home, but I also love being at the beach and by the water. My dream is to one day live by the water and own a sweet little shore bakery. Hmmmm, one day. For now, it’s a cute little townhouse in Baltimore....

Please give a warm welcome to my friend Jen from Juanita’s Cocina. She was kind enough to fill in for me while I’m on vacation. This girl knows my heart, and my tummy. She made donuts! I could live on donuts, especially these donuts. Hi! I’m Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! I was thrilled when...

Greetings from cow country, ya’ll (sorry, but we’re in cow country, and in cow country we say ya’ll)! I’m in Pennsylvania for the weekend visiting my family for Memorial day. The drive up here was beautiful and smelly all at the same time- Pennsylvania air is tinged with cow manure, skunk, and road kill....

Cocktail Time

I’ve been mixing up a lot of cocktails lately. I love concocting summery alcoholic beverages. Last week I found a recipe for a cocktail called the Latin Lover on SheKnows, an article written by Claire Gallam from The Realistic Nutritionist. I didn’t realize it at first, but it’s a skinny cocktail. I had my...

Yay! It’s time for another #SundaySupper celebration. I was unable to attend last Sunday because of that dreaded 20-page research paper, but I’m back, and I couldn’t be more excited. We are  celebrating Cristina Ferrare’s cookbook for #SundaySupper this week. I don’t personally own her cookbook, but I hear it’s amazing. I chose a recipe...

I’m extremely happy to be back after missing in action for almost two weeks. I’d like to apologize to all of my followers for my short sabbatical from blogging. I have been extremely busy with school. You know, all the boring things that need to be done in order to graduate. I’ve spent hours...

Happy Sunday! Today’s #SundaySupper theme is garden recipes. I was thrilled when I found out what this weeks theme was going to be. I love growing fresh herbs in the summer and using them in my recipes. They really brighten a dish. I made red potato and grilled corn salad with a chipotle lime vinaigrette...

Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake

I’m craving summer like I crave chocolate. I want to run around it flip-flops and sundresses. I want to sit on the beach with a tropical drink under my umbrella while I read a sappy romantic novel. Summer is so carefree. There are bonfires to enjoy, beach parties to attend, and music by the...
