Fire Roasted Herb Butter Corn on the Cob

August is upon us in the beautiful state of Minnesota, which means we are in the final lap of summer break. This time of year always seems to fly by as we soak up the remaining weeks before another year of school begins. The days are still deliciously warm, the sunlight doesn’t wean until well …

Spring vegetable + bacon soup

A Mother’s Day trip to the Farmer’s Market this weekend filled my heart with memories, and my fridge with beautiful, seasonably fresh produce. It was a great morning filled with sunshine, coffee + family! One of my favorite purchases was from a local farmer selling the most delicious asparagus. His eyes shimmered when he spoke …

Savory Waffles with Prosciutto, Arugula + Over Easy Egg

Brunch: it’s technical definition is a late morning meal eaten instead of breakfast and lunch and categorized as a noun. In my book, brunch is a verb. Done with enthusiasm and best when shared amongst friends. Weekends and brunch go together like coffee and chocolate, where adequate time can be spent enjoying all varieties of …

Garlic + Dill Potato Wedges

Since the onset of my struggles with gluten earlier this year, I have learned to satisfy my cravings for carbs in a variety of ways. Potatoes are definitely one of the vehicles that delivers this carb satisfaction – though I’ve always had an affinity for potatoes. We are Midwesterners, after all! I recall thoroughly enjoying …

Loaded Mashed Potato Pouches

In my humble opinion, appetizers and the Holiday Season pair together much like wine and cheese. November and December bring family + friends alike together with greater frequency, all of which makes my heart sublimely happy. Following our Thanksgiving dinner, we had an excess amount of mashed potatoes (thanks to you CostCo + your 15 pound …

Spicy Maple Glazed Rumaki

I love how social media connects people. It’s a gathering space where people from all different walks of life can connect and share; come together. This is very much akin to my philosophy on meeting at the dinner table – we gather not only to feed our bodies, but also our minds, relationships and foster …

Cheesy Skillet Onion + Bacon Dip

As back to school creeps closer and pre-season football games are in full swing, I find the comforts of heavier appetizers to munch in lieu of dinner more appealing. This one will become a new staple on weekends and holiday gatherings in our kitchen. It’s creamy and loaded with flavor from a variety of cheeses, onions …

Cauliflower + Dill Spaghetti

Week night meals can vary from a well planned, calm menu to a frenzied episode of Food Network’s ‘Chopped’ in our home. If you work, have children, volunteer, travel often or any combination of the above, you get where I’m coming from in terms of this scenario. Not all are successful, and ironically the biggest …

Parmesan + Thyme Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower is one of those vegetables I’ve always struggled eating until recently. In efforts to get my two blonde babes to keep an open mind about all foods, I figured I should do the same and simply try different variations of cooking said vegetable. One tried and true method I’ve found to get almost anyone to …

Parmesan Garlic + Dill Drumsticks

There’s something to be said about chicken wings + football. Theirs is a marriage that has withstood countless years and birthed many flavors. I love them all, truthfully, and any excuse I can get to eat a chicken wing (or drumstick in this instance) is okay by me. With Superbowl Sunday just one week away, …
