Butternut Squash Lasagna

Sometimes, you just nail a recipe. You put a bunch of ingredients together and with that first bite you nearly melt into the floor. That was for sure the case when I put this dish together… about 3 years ago. Without going into all the excuses details about why I haven’t shared this recipe with…

Sophisticated S’mores

Yeah. I went there. Straight to the core of delicious-ness. I used to think I hit the jackpot of all things s’more when I replaced the Hershey Bar with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. (If you haven’t tried that you should. Immediately.) But this is Justin Timberlake, bringing sexy back, in a private jet, packed with your…

Paleo Egg Muffins

It’s officially day 9 of our Whole30 journey. If you don’t have time to click on the link, that’s 30 days without dairy, grain, added sugar, legumes, soy, alcohol, vegetable oils, grains and processed foods. (Gulp.) I can’t say a bagel with delectable cream cheese (preferably from the heaven sent ovens of Gotham Bagels) hasn’t…

10 THINGS THAT ROCK MY WORLD My apple TV. This miraculous device connects my itunes world to my big screen. Between Netflix, HuluPlus and my iTunes movie purchases, I should be thankful it doesn’t count the amount of hours you watch on it. Pitch Perfect. On an unsuspecting Sunday Fat Amy entered my life and…

Goat Cheese, Pork, Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Salsa Sandwich

Long time, no see. I’m going to be real honest. The reason for my lack of blogging is 100% pinterest’s fault. Not only does is suck you in for an incredulous amount of time, but really… between the decadent salted, peanut butter & chocolate cakes, the incessant work out quotes and the pretty pretty perfect parties… where…

No Recipe and No Goodbye

It’s amazing to me how a single moment, decision, or breath can change the course of not only your life, but every single person who loves you. How if one person doesn’t take the time to think about the repercussions of a seemingly simple decision, it can turn a friendship or a family upside down….

Bruschetta Pasta with Crispy Prosciutto & Parmesan

It’s days like today I am thankful I picked up a nasty habit… running. Two months ago I was in Vancouver, Canada, on vacation, helping a dear friend with her 2 month old twins.  Yes…I’m aware the terms vacation and two month twins do not go hand and hand. Regardless, I was thousands of miles…

Portobello Heaven

I am about to say something I never say. I hit the jackpot on this sandwich. I mean, this is devine. The kind of taste combination that just leaves me stunned, silent, and blissfully happy with a euphoric smile slapped across my face. I’d be happy if I found this gem at a local dining…

Bad Mexican Breakfast Quesadilla

It’s true. I don’t speak a lick of spanish, I can’t handle my tequila, and I prefer sushi over tacos any day. By some standards, I’m kind of a bad Mexican. It’s a bit of an ongoing joke I have with my friends. And it’s immediately apparent to those who share my heritage. But what can I do?…

Cream Cheese and Roasted Garlic Twice Baked Potatoes

So.. I don’t know if I’ve told you guys, but I have a mean habit of meeting undeniably awesome people. If one could somehow be judged on having the best friends and family and made into an Olympic event, I’d be a gold medalist for sure. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s simply a gift. It’s…
