Thanksgiving Cornbread

Thanksgiving Cornbread

For many years I taught monthly cooking classes. Every November I would offer a "Pre-Thanksgiving Feast" and we would prepare several Thanksgiving side dishes such as Maple Pecan Yams, Warm Greens with Honeyed Pears & Pomegranate and Thanksgiving Cornbread. While...

Glorious Morning Carrot Zucchini Muffins

Glorious Morning Carrot Zucchini Muffins

Our Glorious Morning Muffins are full of healthy ingredients such as zucchini, carrot, currants and walnuts. They feel like the perfect Fall treat with the warming spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. To us, these muffins are “just sweet enough” with a small amount of...

Savory Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Savory Slow Cooker Beef Stew

This dish is winter comfort food at its yummiest! Warm, hearty, savory beef stew with root veggies, broth and herbs. The Slow Cooker allows time for the beef to become super tender, which makes it fall apart in your mouth—the way we personally like it best. Simply...

Casey’s D.I.Y. Candles

Casey’s D.I.Y. Candles

We all know that giving gifts can sometimes feel impersonal. Buying tool kits for dad, bath robes for mom, and socks for everyone else (which I’m not against, I love socks) can feel mundane. This year, I decided to dive into do-it-yourself gifts. I began making...

Crock Pot Turkey Stew with Root Vegetables

Crock Pot Turkey Stew with Root Vegetables

Everything about this recipe screams Fall & Winter! The combination of the turkey and the various root vegetables make this soup hearty, filling & warming. I am a huge fan of meals that you set in the crock-pot in the afternoon and then get to smell throughout...

These muffin-pan mini quiches have been a go-to recipe of mine for years! They make a great breakfast or brunch recipe—as well as a fun finger-food to take along to parties (think: Mother's Day brunch, baby showers, birthday parties). They refrigerate and freeze...

4-Ingredient Balsamic Grilled Chicken

4-Ingredient Balsamic Grilled Chicken

Our daughter, Mia, is by far the pickiest eater of all the kids! While she never eats anything unhealthy (we simply don't keep unhealthy foods at home), she lacks the openness, excitement, or willingness to try new foods that her older siblings have always had.  But...

Grilled Peaches

Grilled Peaches

We are LOVING peaches right now! The kind of love that equates to a trip to the Farmers Market for a box each week 😉 This is the second peach recipe I've posted this summer. If you missed our Peach Cobbler with Biscuit Topping recipe, you can find that one here.  Now...

The Ultimate Crepe (Gluten & Dairy Free)

The Ultimate Crepe (Gluten & Dairy Free)

I am going to make two statements and I imagine many of you might relate. We have been craving some "comfort" foods over these unprecedented last several months.We have been looking for ways to occupy our kids in new and creative ways. Every. Single. Day.  :)...

Peach Cobbler with Biscuit Topping

Peach Cobbler with Biscuit Topping

I have a confession: I went to college at Emory University and lived in Atlanta, Georgia for four years. I’m not sure how it happened, but I did not eat a single peach while living in “The Peach State”! I am pretty sure it was my best friend Pamela (a Southern girl)...

Crispy Kale Chips

Crispy Kale Chips

Somehow we lucked out with kale. All three of our kids have liked it since they were young. I suspect growing up in Boulder might have had something to do with it! While they have always liked kale, it's no surprise that they like it BEST when it is crispy. When...
