Homemade Perogies


My girlfriend Lise and I had been all talk and no walk for months when we kept saying we wanted to make homemade cabbage rolls and perogies. Both recipes were easy, however they were both monotonous and time-consuming so we knew it would only be fun if we did it together. So finally one night we Continue reading

One Pot Tomato Basil Pasta


It’s officially the last day of the September long weekend….. can you believe it?! Since no one should be slaving over dinner on the last day of a long weekend…. treat yourself to this no-fail pasta dish! My girlfriend made this for us one night after seeing it on Pinterest and it truly is a One Pot Wonder.

Vegetarian Pad Thai


Happy Tuesday everyone! I would have posted this recipe last night but the thunderstorm knocked out our power. I don’t know what it is about a power outage that excites me but it gets me every time. Maybe it’s a combination of having to temporarily resort back to a Amish lifestyle or the fact that storms are a rare occurrence where we live (when they do happen, they usually last all of 10 minutes.) My hubby and I were organizing our filing cabinet and all of a sudden we found ourselves in the dark…… not what you’re thinking. Continue reading

Buffalo Chicken Man-wiches


After a productive day today I am ready for some resting and relaxing tonight. I spent all afternoon yesterday and this morning working with my grandma to finish re-covering my glider chair! She is such a great seamstress so with her guidance and expertise, I am soooo happy with the results! I can’t wait to post pictures!

Then after some daunting errands, returns and a good ol’ stop at Walmart I treated myself to a float on the lake with my girlfriend Lise this afternoon. Now I plan on making an easy dinner Continue reading

Strawberries… whip cream….vanilla custard…. atop fluffy waffles. MMmmmmm.  That’s a recipe for one happy belly. Continue reading

Avocado & Feta Salad with Honey Lime Dressing


I decided that since the weather wasn’t going to smarten up then at least my food choices could. Just because it’s raining outside doesn’t mean I can’t be inspired by fresh summer ingredients right?! This is my new favorite salad!! Continue reading

Shrimp and Feta Pasta


You wouldn’t think it’s almost summer with the weather we have been having for the past few days. I’m not complaining because I’ve always liked cloudy and rainy days to break up the heat. So when the weather is a little cooler, I’m happy to change up the menu and make some comfort food (or that could be the prego in me talking) Continue reading
