White Bean and Sage Cakes with Roasted Tomatoes

Print Friendly

I’m not even going to discuss how stifling hot it is today in Kansas City. I don’t need to tell you about the sunburn blisters I got just by gazing out the back window at my tomato plants. I’ll spare you the torturous details though. I won’t mention how I stupidly took a run this […]

Grilled Peach Salad

For the last couple of Christmases, my sweet memaw has gifted me with a subscription to Southern Living magazine. You see, I’m actually from the south, and I do in fact have a memaw. Oh I’m not even kidding. She even starts every sentence with, “Wayell daaaarlin’!” I love her. A lot. To my surprise, […]

Yesterday after meeting up with an old dear friend for lunch, Aaron and I drove away from the restaurant craving a little summer mid-day treat.

Easy Peasy Summer Minestrone

I love making soup in the summertime because it means I don’t have to do much. Aside from a little chippity-chop-chop of a few vegetables, the pot does all the work! This really works to my advantage, you see. This gives me more time to focus on which Ross and Rachel milestone we’re crossing. It […]

Baked Zucchini Boats

We’re in the dog days of the summer and zucchini is everywhere. The neighborhood gardens, farmers’ markets and local grocery stores are all working double-time shelling out the summer beauties. Hey, I high-five summer for that because my soul belongs to zucchini in the summer. Yes, I literally jump around my back yard high-fiving the […]

Quick Pasta with Broccoli and Cabbage

What. A. Weekend. America had a birthday, fireworks were shot, dogs were frightened, a bush caught on fire, brats and burgers were consumed by the truckloads, warm hugs were shared between old friends, the swimming pool was not once neglected, root beer float shots were consumed by the gallons, chacos never left my feet, quality […]

Grilled Salmon with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Garden Wild Rice (Longest Title Ever)

Print Friendly

Mission accomplished! We successfully managed to scrounge up whatever was left in the fridge, pantry and garden for a quick “gettin’-out-of-town-for-a-few-days” dinner. Well, when I say “we,” I actually mean Aaron. You see, all day long yesterday I felt completely dried up on dinner ideas. (After my delicious lunch that is.) On the verge of […]
