August 17, 2013

My Go-To Dish for Cookouts This Summer

June 23, 2013

We ate something similar to this dish at a cookout on Memorial Day.  It was so simple and everyone loved it.  I’m not even sure who brought it to the party, but I have since recreated it and plan to take it to every potluck style gathering we attend over the next several weeks.  Love [...]

June 16, 2013

Today is Charlie and Katie’s first birthday and yesterday we threw a little fiesta to celebrate! There was a coloring table… Nonna (my mom) made gluten free cupcakes for our wheat-free guests.  She used a boxed mixed and then doctored them up with homemade chocolate fudge and lemon buttercream icings.  We’re all about the frosting [...]

What I’m Craving Now

June 7, 2013
