When my husband and I moved in together, we loved spending our afternoons in the kitchen making dinner together and had no problem dirtying every dish in the house to get exactly what we wanted. A lot of life has happened since those days… We’ve both changed jobs, we’re on different shifts, and we had […]
I just realized I posted this recipe to my Facebook and Instagram, but not here. This is one of my very favorite summer recipes! It comes together super quickly – the most time consuming part is cutting up the watermelon – and there’s no need to turn on the stove or oven. Depending on the […]
I can’t be the only person who thinks “I wish I could have these every day” whenever I have s’mores. It never fails though, I have a true s’more – with a peanut butter cup instead of chocolate bar, obviously – and then spend the rest of the week making sad oven s’mores or even […]

When summer finally rolls around, I’m always on the lookout for a light, cool side to whatever we’re grilling. I’m not usually a fan of pasta salad, but when Smitten Kitchen’s Pasta Salad with Roasted Tomatoes popped up in my Instagram feed, I stopped scrolling and went straight to the grocery store. No mayo, no […]
Last week our sweet girl moved from the baby room to the toddler room at daycare. It was a big moment for my mama heart. I’ll be a mess by the time she starts kindergarden. But the ladies who have been watching her since my maternity leave ended were so good to her and to […]
