Repurposing Leftovers + {Tangy Black Bean Dip}

I don't know about you, but I have historically been terrible with leftovers.  I don't mind eating leftovers for work lunches, but Dear Hubby would rather never have to eat the same thing two days in a row. (I think this is part of the reason he loves eating out!) So, to incorporate leftovers into an entirely new meal or repurpose them beyond recognition... well, that's just genius. And I need to do it more. ... Read more » about Repurposing Leftovers + {Tangy Black Bean Dip}

On a Roll + {Blackberry Cucumber Chicken Salad}

This morning Pillsbury shared my Banana Cream Pie Bites with their 2 MILLION fans on Facebook, and quite a few hopped on over to look at the recipe and read a few other blogposts of mine.  Soooooooo, WELCOME to all my new readers/fans!

Dating + {Sweet Spaghetti Squash Casserole}

Dear Hubby started wooing me our freshman year of college in Pittsburgh, where we both started school at Carnegie Mellon University.  We met when we were 18 in a class appropriately named: "Interpretation and Argument."  Both good things to learn with a future spouse :)  We both transferred away from that cold, bleak place within a year: Dear Hubby to Texas, me Boulder.  The Univ. ...

Feelin' the love + {Italian Artichoke Biscuit Quiches}

Well, between all the potty/poop talk, a recipe for pork tenderloin, and a comment about church, I've lost quite a few Facebook fans and blog readers this week. Evidently I'm more offensive than originally thought!! #keepinitreal  This is where I'm at in life, and I love sharing it with you...good, bad, and ugly.  For those of you still here: thank you ...

Dollhouses, Dump Trucks and {PB&J Muffins}

I was a little worried about moving to the mountains for Babycakes' sake, because I wasn't sure she'd have very many friends or the same opportunities, or that she'd turn out "weird."  But as I said in the recent Home, Sweet Home post, she LOVES it here.  It is all so HER!  She loves snow. She loves bundling. She loves dirt AND wearing dresses. She loves meeting new people and introducing herself. ... Read more » about Dollhouses, Dump Trucks and {PB&J Muffins}

Dirt, Muck, and {Blueberry Oatmeal Bake}

Someone asked me what I did for fun this past weekend. I answered, "We don't have fun anymore." A bit snarky. A bit true. Unless you call house projects and fixing things fun!  There is still so much to be done to settle in to our new house that the last thing we can think about is fun. On that note, during the "free hours"      I normally would have to work on new recipe development, cooking, photographing beautiful food for the blog, etc... I am instead ...
