VINTAGE-KITCHEN-552.jpg

Hi friends! I am very busy chilling poolside with a cocktail or lounging on the sand or frolicking in the waves in Virginia Beach. OK, truthfully I am probably carrying The Bug around the pool trying to teach him to swim, chasing him on the sand, trying to keep him from crying from the waves,…

Cherries-Blue-Cheese-Salad-1.jpg

#RecipeRedux almost didn’t happen for me this month.  Things have been busy, we have been in and out so much that we are eating out a little more often, and when I do cook at home, it has most often been something quick and easy, and old favorite, not a new recipe that I am…

Bana-Nutella-Chip-Ice-Cream-collage-1.jpg

Ice cream is my absolute favorite thing ever. If you follow me on Instagram, this is abundantly clear.  I went through a short phase a few months back of experimenting with some homemade ice creams, but trying to lower the fat and sugar.  I was never overly thrilled with the texture and taste.  Now, I…

Bobby-Flay-Corn-caption.jpg

Last month, I went out on a bit of a limb for the Improv Cooking Challenge, taking the savory route with Cherries & Almonds.  For this month, I guess I kind of played it safe with the Corn & Butter.  New Jersey corn, when in season, is amazing.  I know that there are lots of…

So I know that I already included this recipe with the Mexican Black Bean & Quinoa Burgers, so I suppose this post is sort of a cop out.  But, you know, sometimes life happens… And summer happens… And wine happens… And ice cream happens… And potty-training happens… And this is all within the past week…

Good Morning! And Happy 4th of July!  I am sorry that you don’t have a piece of this for your holiday breakfast. Truth be told, I am sorry I don’t have a piece of it, myself.  It was actually devoured weeks ago. So a little about the role crumb cake has played in my life….

Honey and Sea Salt Peanut Butter

Honey-Sea-Salt-Peanut-Butter-with-caption.jpg

So you probably know  by now that I am obsessed with peanut butter.  So I knew I had to try making my own.  Right around the same time, I won a Ninja blender and was contemplating my candy recipe for this month’s First on the First.  What a perfect opportunity to give this a shot!…

Peanut Butter Cups for Grown-Ups (or kids too!) – #FirstOnTheFirst

Grown Up PB Cups on blue

First, let me apologize if this post is choppy or incoherent.  I am writing it in the car on my way home from our vacation in Vermont while The Bug, who only slept for an hour, versus his usual 2 1/2 to 3 hour nap, repeatedly throws his blankie and water then whines about needing…
