This sponsored post was written while participating in my partnership with Sprout and One2One Network, but as always, all opinions, stories and pictures are my own. I’m not sure what it is with little kids, but they LOVE to look at pictures of themselves!  Both kids ask me multiple times a day to “Take a… Continue Reading…

Asparagus and Leek Skillet Pizza

Asparagus and leek skillet pizza

I’m starting to realize that when I like something, I really like something.  There are things that I really have been attached to lately when it comes to cooking.  [And I'm sure you've noticed them around here too.]  One – my cast iron skillet.  [It may be the only pan I use.] Two – bread. … Continue Reading…

How to cut a leek

Leeks have to be my new favorite vegetable in the kitchen.  When we go to the farmer’s market on the weekends, I always stop and grab at least one before browsing all the local vendors.  When I get home I put them on the counter with my other fresh produce and the smell just fills… Continue Reading…

Roasted Tomato Skillet Pasta

Roasted Tomato Skillet Pasta Dinner

You know how I admitted a few weeks ago that I am a pasta-a-holic? Well I probably should change that to admit that I am addicted to one pot pasta dinners.  I seriously can’t get over how easy they are and why they weren’t in my life sooner. [Slightly dramatized but only slightly].  They have… Continue Reading…

Java Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

java chocolate chunk ice cream

The older I get the more I love my morning coffee.  And I should really find another name for coffee because I like mine with equal parts coffee and creamer.  And what I really mean is I use equal parts International Delight Sweet Cream coffee creamer.  So I’m basically drinking ice cream flavored coffee in… Continue Reading…
