Apple and Herb Stuffing

Apple and Herb Stuffing

Stuffing and dressing and filling, oh my! These days it seems like no one can agree on anything, and this Thanksgiving staple is no different. I’d much rather discuss the discord in naming our Thanksgiving sides than discuss the disagreements of our current political climate. While […]

Indian Pudding || Lost and Found

Indian Pudding || Lost and Found

Get out your feather duster because this recipe has been lost and collecting dust for a few centuries. Now that it has been found, Indian Pudding is one recipe that I certainly hope you will be adding to your Thanksgiving menu. This traditional New England dessert […]

Maple Sweet Potatoes  ||  Homemade in a Hurry

Maple Sweet Potatoes || Homemade in a Hurry

It’s just about that time of year! Where we take something perfectly healthy, and do our best to make it decadent while turning a blind eye to calorie count. Green beans, for example — stir in some cream of mushroom soup, fried onions, and bacon and you’ve gone from a nutritious […]

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bread

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bread

I know Halloween originated as a day to remember the saints, martyrs, and the faithfully departed. But this year I am too spooked by things like figuring out pre-school Halloween party logistics and complaining about ridiculously expensive Halloween candy (why is it so expensive these days!?).

Cranberry Scones with Maple Glaze

Cranberry Scones with Maple Glaze

Trick-or-Treat Cake

Trick-or-Treat Cake

Although my personal costume selection has evolved over the years (please let all pictures from my college years be lost forever), kids’ costumes really have not changed. In my youth, our costumes were usually hand sewn by my mom, with the exception of the highly […]

Sweet Potato Salad with Andouille Sausage || A Taste of the Big Easy

If you need a big change and an easy weekend away from the little kids and the hard routine, might I suggest a trip to the Big Easy? Maddy and I spent the weekend in New Orleans (without the kids!) and absolutely fell in love […]

End of Summer Sangria

End of Summer Sangria

I realize that the “dog days” of summer reference has less to do with canines and more to do with a late summer star. But these late summer hazy-hot days sure make me understand a panting dog stretched out on the pavement trying to stay […]

Granny’s Golden Butter Cupcakes – with Candied Edible Flowers

Granny’s Golden Butter Cupcakes – with Candied Edible Flowers

This was the year my daughters would finally have a birthday party. When Jane turned one we had JUST moved into our new house, and when she turned two, we had JUST had another baby. So this had to be her year. Plus I found Granny’s recipe […]

Pink Lemonade Champagne Punch

Pink Lemonade Champagne Punch

Pink lemonade Champagne punch is a drink that goes down as easily as it is made. So easily, in fact, that my intern and dad and I made it two days in a row while celebrating nothing more fancy than being together for the first time […]
