Marinated Kale And Whipped Ricotta Pizza

How weird would it be if my new favorite pizza included something GREEN? I mean, usually I wax poetic (HA) about how I am the most boring-est pizza eater on the planet, forcing any and all around me to order their delivery box completely PLAIN with just cheese because toppings are for fools. Okay not […]

GINGERBREAD BARS WITH EGGNOG CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

Christmas is less than two weeks away! Are you ready? I’m not. And I’m becoming okay with that. With all of the hours of driving to find a new home to rent, the packing, the actual moving, the unpacking, oh, and the sickness that just didn’t want to leave my husband and me, this holiday […]

Roast pumpkin, herb & walnut pasta bake

ONE-POT CREAMY PUMPKIN PASTA

I first posted this pumpkin pasta recipe just about two years ago, on September 9, 2014. On its (almost) two-year-anniversary, I thought I’d share it again! It’s been a huge favorite of readers (and us!) ever since I shared it. I had to curtail dairy shortly after creating this recipe, so about a year ago, […]

Ultra creamy popsicles using International Delight Iced Coffee for a refreshing treat! At any given time of the day, you’ll find me with an iced coffee in my hand. Especially during the Summer.
