THE MIX. {A delicious summer treat}

Posted by on Jul 10, 2014 in Be Inspired, Featured Posts, In The Kitchen, Make It | 0 comments

My friend Tami dubbed this “The Mix,” a few years ago.  It didn’t need a cute name like Puppy Chow or Nuts & Bolts to attract people to it….just calling it what it was…..The Mix…..was good enough.  Kind of like Madonna, Prince, or Cher.  Your kids will love this one and it’s something they can...

  I love dessert as much as the next person, but when it comes to making food I’m definitely more of a cook than a baker. So, when I realized that I still hadn’t figured out what I’m making for tonight’s little friend get-together at my house (and everyone else seemed to be bringing appetizers!) I...

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up it’s fun to whip up a little sweet treat for the kiddos that hearkens thoughts of leprechauns and rainbows and pots of gold.  My daughter has recently fallen in love with sorbet–a much healthier option compared to the ice-cream she could down every night.  And lucky for this...

Roasted Vegetables

Well, winter up here in Michigan has been BRUTAL. So far we’ve endured 20+ inch dumps of snow (multiple times!), sub-zero temps and a sci-fi-sounding weather emergency called a polar vortex. Obviously, I’ve dealt with all this craziness hiding under a warm blanket eating my weight in cheese. Who wants to eat salad in...

Simple & Sweet Fruit Dip

Posted by on Jan 15, 2014 in Be Inspired, In The Kitchen | 1 comment

I love getting together with our family’s friends to share dinner. The adults can usually get a few words of conversation in while the kids run around screaming, and you can divide up the food responsibilities so no one really has to do a ton of cooking. Plus, the only way you build community is by spending time together, and there is...

Make Pannekoeken {Dutch pancakes} for a festive cold weather brunch!

Elliot had a snow day from school, my husband stayed home from work, we spent a large portion of the day making snow angels and...
