Prosciutto Wrapped Brie Bites With Rosemary Crusted Walnuts

The day is quickly approaching (18 days!!!) until we move from Berlin back to the US. How do I feel about this? Excited, sentimental, happy, sad, and totally underprepared, to name a few of my many bursting emotions. But (most of all?) frantic to enjoy as much of the amazingly underpriced foods here in Germany … Read more

Chipotle Sweet Potato And Black Bean Chili

So, here we are, back in the US for good. The whole living in Germany thing was fun, but being home is even better. We are back in my glorious home state of Michigan, less than 15 minutes away from the beautiful, sandy beaches of Lake Huron. The move went great (mostly). We flew from … Read more

Zuppa Toscana {Olive Garden Copycat Recipe}

Greetings. I’m here today to offer up to you my copycat version of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana.

Homemade Cranberry Cream Cheese Crumble Bars

If there’s one thing that I love as much as sweet potatoes (or dare I say… even more??) it’s cranberries. That’s why I am totally stealing this old post of mine from 2011 and remaking it. Partly also because those pictures were horrid and partly because I wanted to try them out gluten free because … Read more

Allergy Friendly Chocolate Cupcakes (Gluten, Dairy, Egg, And Nut Free)

My future (in 8 days!!) sister-in-law and I spent a couple of days in the last few weeks making about a couple hundred cupcakes for her wedding and freezing them. My poor, celiac mouth watered as I surveyed them all lined up like an army across my kitchen counters. “Aren’t there a few other gluten … Read more

Creamy Mini Meatball And Brussels Sprout Penne

When you’re preparing to move across the Atlantic Ocean in less than a month and working on cramming all of your life’s possessions into one suitcase every day between your baby’s diaper explosions and sporadic naps, sometimes the only thing standing between you and complete insanity is a big, cheesy pan of creamy pasta. And … Read more
