Onion mushroom turkey burgers

It’s 2016 and I’m eating onions AND mushrooms. Together, even. This year sure is off to a weird start! I don’t typically set resolutions, but I always like looking back at what’s change or progressed over time. And, this mushroom-centric recipe is proof that I have changed in the past few years!…

The easiest creamy oatmeal recipe

Good morning! This oatmeal has been my go-to breakfast (or even lunch) lately, and I had to share how delicious and easy it is. The easiest oatmeal is made up of just oats, milk, water, 1/2 of a banana and a little vanilla extract (plus whatever you add on top!). The chopped…

Gingerbread white chocolate chip biscotti

Let’s hold on to the holiday season a little bit longer and make this delicious biscotti to dunk in our morning coffee. We still have one more December day to savor! And really, it’s too cold to go outside in Colorado right now anyway. (I was freezing when it was 50 in Arizona…I’d keep…

Chicken with bacon and white bean ragout

You guys. My brother is so cool that he just made this recipe up. I’m so uncool, on the other hand, that I had to Google what a “ragout” was after he sent it to me. #reallife For a little culinary education: He later explained that a ragout is technically a stew,…

Intervals + Incline Walking Workout

Happy Thursday! Let’s talk about balance. What does it mean to you? For me, it means staying active and eating a relatively healthy diet… with some cookies and wine mixed in, of course (we have to live a little!). So, along with finding recipes and baking ideas, I love looking at new workout…

Eggnog Pancakes

Creamy eggnog, cinnamon and nutmeg in fluffy pancake form? Yes, please. But first, let’s back up: I had never even tried eggnog before last week. I know! And the strangest part is that I was still somehow dreaming of eggnog pancakes. The idea of plain eggnog weirded me out (What is…

National Cupcake Day

Happy National Cupcake Day! We just can’t let this holiday pass without recognition around here 😉 Cupcakes have always been a favorite; arguably the best mini dessert. We’re even thinking we’ll have a “cake” made out of cupcakes at our wedding, so clearly, I’m serious about this. Just in time for…

Happy Friday! We are in full work-holidays-wedding-planning mode over here (aka overwhelmed!), and I’m so ready for this weekend. I hope you all have a great weekend full of delicious food… like boozy cookie bars. Favorite dinner idea: I made this butternut squash soup from Julie’s blog the other night…
