Sourdough, Sausage, and Chestnut Stuffing

Recipe Sunday

Did Thanksgiving sneak up on anyone else this year? Or was it just me? And was anyone else feeling this exact same way last year? I mean, yesterday was Halloween and the day before that was Labor Day, so I don't know what's happening to the yearly calendar as I get...

Jeff and I are enjoying a lazy weekend with Jeff's sweet cousin Sarah from Minneapolis who flew out to San Diego to celebrate her 30th birthday in America's Finest City (we love this girl!). Lazy weekends are hard to come by for Jeff and me during this time of year...

Almond Butter Sandwich Cookies

Recipe Sunday

Oh. My. Dear. Heavenly. Goodness. I'm not a cookie person really, but I'm definitely an Almond Butter Sandwich Cookie convert. These cookies are nothing short of HEAVEN. And every time I've made them for friends, the health-nuts at the party that always skimp on...

Tea-Marinated Salmon

Recipe Sunday

Jeff and I are not what you'd call 'fish' people. We love our seafood, and will eat it when presented with the opportunity, but we don't cook fish or seafood on a regular basis. In fact, this was one of my first attempts at grilling salmon, so I felt a bit like a...

Broiled Spicy Pork and Pineapple

Recipe Sunday

I simply can't believe that summer is coming to a close already. My teacher friends are back in school and Labor Day is coming up in just a short week. How did this happen so quickly? I feel like I just got in the groove of shorts, sunscreen, hats, and pools and...

Grilled Meat Loaf Burgers

Recipe Sunday

Honeycomb Cake with Lemon Zest and Sage

Recipe Sunday

I gave up baking pies for holiday gatherings at the in-laws.  Growing up, I could whip out delicious pies with my eyes closed, and I was in charge of them for Thanksgiving and Christmas. In the first few years of our marriage, however, I suddenly couldn't bake a...

Rhubarb Flatbread with Chives and Honey

Recipe Sunday

I know. The title of this recipe doesn't exactly sound appetizing once you really think about it. Rhubarb? On flatbread? Eh? I found this recipe in my recent issue of Better Homes and Gardens because rhubarb is in season right now. But their thinking is that there...

One Pan Orecchiette w/Chickpeas & Olives

Recipe Sunday

While my attempts at gardening grow outside (tomatoes, herbs, arugula, green beans, and carrots), I've been looking for easy sumer dishes that will work equally well when the San Diego fog rolls in as when the sun is shining bright and hot outside. Or when my...

Tres Leches Bread Pudding

Recipe Sunday

Awwwww yes... Easter. The day of chocolate shaped bunnies, deviled eggs, the official launch of the little summer dress, the only day I'll ever wear white gloves, and the end of lent. Oh the end of lent. Ok, so I've rarely observed lent, but I'm slowly hearing the...
