It’s officially summer, friends, which means it’s also family reunion season! I always loved our family reunion as a kid. The sack races, swimming all day and, of course, the food! Today I’ve teamed up with READ® Salads to share my easy reunion-ready German potato breakfast casserole. You’re going to love it!
There’s a restaurant here in our little city where they serve the most amazing portobello burger. It’s so good that it inspired me years ago to starting grilling portobello burgers at home. Today I’m teaming up with SOLA® to share what might just be the perfect summer grilling recipe – my portobello burgers topped with grilled peaches and pickled red onions!
Is anyone else a complete sucker for a peanut butter and chocolate combination? I seriously can’t get enough, which is why I’m particularly fond of these no-bake homemade peanut butter cups! And you know what’s crazy? They’re made with crackers!
One of the most popular requests I receive (both here, on Instagram and from my friends and family) is for more party appetizers! People love an easy party appetizer recipe, so I decided I would take a moment today to round up 21 of the best summer appetizers perfect for all your upcoming summer parties.
A little over a year ago we filmed this video featuring a bunch of fun and easy brunch ideas. In short, I seem to have lost most of the photos I shot of this table afterward and so I sort of put if off sharing it, but I just love this colorful table!
When I saw the topic for this month’s installment of our Real Talk with Real Moms series I’m pretty sure I actually laughed out loud. As a point of order, I have about zero tips for children and sleep these days, but surviving toddler sleep regression? That I can speak to! So buckle up. It’s about the get real.
Coloring Easter eggs was always one of my favorite parts of the Easter season when I was a kid. These gold leaf shaving cream Easter eggs are way prettier than the eggs of my childhood, and surprisingly almost as simple to make!
Emerson had the flu last week. When she spiked a fever on Wednesday I pretty much knew our fate since she’d been exposed on Monday, so I immediately scooped her out of the house for a flu test. While she sat on my lap in the waiting room, crying to go home, she complained about how her eyeballs felt like they were fire.
When it’s peak season, I like to hoard blood oranges. They’re like a burst of sunshine in the thick of the end-of-winter doldrums, don’t you think?! Today we’re talking blood orange cocktails. Also known as, “Here are eleven reasons to stock up on blood oranges at the grocery store this week.”
It’s Monday, so it feels like a good day to talk about poutine. Vegetarian poutine, specifically, made with an easy homemade vegetarian gravy that will leave you wanting for none of the flavor you love about gravy. Some of you may be wondering, “What the heck is poutine?!” In short, it’s a Canadian dish featuring fries layered with cheese curd and then smothered in gravy. Usually it’s beef gravy, but often it’s chicken gravy. Today we’re making it with vegetarian gravy so that your vegetarian pals (like me) can get down with the poutine goodness, too.
Some of you may remember a couple of years ago when I was part of the Real Talk with Real Mom series along with a bunch of my favorite ladies in the blogging community where each month we would share our personal experiences related to motherhood and parenting. After a long hiatus, the series is back and I’m so excited to dig into some of the really tricky topics we all think about so often as mothers and parents. Today we’re dishing on growing families – going from one kid to two or more or, in our case, an unexpected addition to your cub pack.
Four years ago we largely stopped buying Christmas gifts for our teenage boys. Instead we book a trip every year over February break and we get them outside of their comfort zone and out into the world. Bob and I passionately believe that travel is the greatest gift we can give our children, especially over fancy electronics or gaming systems that outdate quickly and end up being worthless for all the money they cost. (Been there, done that.) Today I’m sharing a few photos from our recent Vermont vacation where we stayed in a gorgeous Airbnb and spent a cozy few days playing board games and exploring.
