  • Parmesan Potato Chips

    How is your new year going so far? For us in Northern Colorado, it’s been cold. Really cold. Temperatures as low as -20 have kept us indoors watching T.V.. Which isn’t all bad since I just dumped my cable and got a Roku to stream Netflix. If you haven’t seen the Roku yet, get thyself […]

  • Holiday Eggnog Waffles

    Like most American families, our hectic weekday mornings consisted of toast and cereal for my brothers and me. But on weekends…we went all out. We’d make about two pounds of bacon, a dozen eggs and my absolute favorite, waffles. I love waffles!Theres just something about waffles that beats a flat pancake any day. Fat & […]

  • Spicy Chocolate Biscotti

    There’s just something so special about giving homemade Christmas gifts, and avoiding the Black Friday Brawl, that warms the heart. And there’s nothing that warms the soul like a big steaming mug of coffee with a side of spicy chocolate biscotti. I don’t know if it’s the crunchiness or the spice of the chocolate and […]

  • Basil And Garlic Knots Recipe

    Thanksgiving is the Super Bowl of dinner parties. It’s the day you get to show off your made-from-scratch cooking skills that you normally don’t have time for during your busy work week. I don’t know about you, but I actually love spending the entire day of Thanksgiving, cooking. I can remember getting up at 6 […]

  • One Pan Yellow Tomato Pasta recipe

    What is it about tomatoes? We’ve animated them in horror movies, thrown them in both anger (public hanging, anyone?) and celebration (see Spain’s tomato festival) and eaten them since the time of the Aztecs. Yet, we can’t agree whether or not they’re a fruit or vegetable (the Supreme Court ruled vegetable, science says fruit). But, […]

  • Mac And Cheese Stuffed Pretzels

    Yes, I know it’s difficult to get into the swing of fall. Opaque skies overtake all those glorious summer days that seem to go far too quickly. It’s not all bad though. Here in Colorado, we migrate indoors to meet up with old friends and think about the bright side to living in the snow-capped […]

  • Sweet Potato Gnocchi In Cream Sauce

    It’s been soooo long since I’ve sat down with some hearty comfort food. Now that Autumn is officially in full swing, it’s time for that to change! A lot of people are all about the pumpkins this time of year but frankly, I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin. I know, sacrilege. I am, however, […]

  • Matcha Green Tea Swirl Cake Recipe

    Whenever Summer nears the end, I love to watch the graying skies while I get super cozy with my cats, warm tea and something sweet. Maybe it’s because I don’t have to worry about fitting back into that bikini until next year. Sweet, homemade cake is definitely my dessert of choice and this green tea […]

  • Handmade Herbed Pasta

    “Life is too short. I’d much rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size 0.” -Sophia Bush Nothing can compare to the life-changing taste that is homemade pasta. I know, there’s that whole, the-day-my-kid-was-born, experience but, homemade pasta is perfection. It has to be my favorite food ever (to be fair, it’s a […]
