Rhubarb Orange Crumb Muffins

20180429-DSC_0128

One of my favorite seasons is here: rhubarb season! What is it about them that everyone flips out about? I can’t quite put my finger on it. I know they are delicious, beautiful, and the season is so short. Maybe that’s what it is about them? I saw them in the grocery store and went […]

Caramelized Onions with Gruyère and Black Sesame Seed Scones

20180325-scone

I really need to just make scones once a week and have them on hand; I just love them so much. I love that they can be so versatile and always delicious. I had been dreaming of this flavor combo for quite some time, but I just kept putting it off because there was always […]

Brown Butter Banana Bread

20180406-b

Gosh, can banana bread ever be bad? I don’t think so; there’s so many different recipes out there for banana bread, so many different variations. I don’t think you can really go wrong when you make it. (I mean… I know there’s probably some out there that are crap but the majority is great!) There’s […]

Simple Renter’s Friendly Nursery

20180404-DSC_0023

I used to roll my eyes at people who said the nursery was one of the best parts about pregnancy. While I’m still pregnant writing this, I can’t say what the best part has been, but I will agree with the statement that it is an exciting time to decorate a new space in your […]

Beef Stroganoff

I had this idea not too long ago to start going through the meals I often had growing up in the Midwest. I realized a lot of the meals my parents cooked were not at all what my gentleband’s parents cooked. Our parents are very different from each other. For one, they’re from different eras, and […]

Brown Butter Muscavado Chocolate Chunk Cookies

20180129-cookies1

My last post was a more personal post about our new adventure into parenthood, and as expected, it was the most popular my little journal has ever been. Crazy how people want to be in your personal lives. I think that there’s always a balance that needs to happen, and I hope to always uphold […]

Tiny Human Announcement

This is the first non related food entry, welcome to it. It is delayed in timing, but I honestly don’t think people care that much. I currently am 5 months pregnant, and I never thought I’d be in this state. I had a lot of ideas and thoughts on finding out I was pregnant, but […]

Probably THE Best Shepard’s Pie

20180110-sp3

We’ve been making this recipe consistently for the past 2 years. I have just never shared it because Shepard’s Pie isn’t the prettiest dish in the world. It was very difficult to think, “How can I make this look pretty?” I went as far as to pipe the mashed potatoes on, but for goodness’ sake […]

Classic Tomato Soup

20180106-tomsoup1

I realize a few things with this entry: first is that the weather all over is starting to warm up, and that my previous post was also soup. I’m sorry, but I’ve been on a soup kick, and the colder weather calls for all different types of soups. It’s still early January; who knows where […]

Winter Comfort Soup

20171210-DSC_0122

It’s finally getting chilly here in Florida! It’s snowing everywhere north of here, but it’s chilly here in Florida! I miss the snow, so we’ve been planning on where to go to see the snow soon. Even though it’s not snowing, and some people will roll their eyes at us if I comment on how […]
