Warm White Bean Arugula Salad

My favorite crop season…and season in general…is upon us. Fall. My husband plants all my favorite things this time of the year. Arugula, kale, spinach, broccoli, all the greens. Since we have an abundance of them in our garden, I’m always looking for new ways to use them. Arugula is my favorite leafy green. It […]

•green• spring pea pasta 

Last weekend was the first one following a long strand of busy weekends where we got to stay home with no plans and just relax. We had been going nonstop with holidays, birthdays, and out of town events. It felt so amazing to stay in lounge clothes and do (or not do for that matter) […]

Superfood Series: m a c a

For the last post of my Superfood Series I chose what is arguably my favorite. Maca powder. I planned on posting this at an earlier date, but my house was struck with a stomach bug and daddy and daughter were both down meaning mom was on nurse duty. So without further ado, I present to […]

:: Apple Cider M I M O S A S ::

It’s finally starting to feel fall{ish} outside and what better way to celebrate than with a massive, shockingly gorgeous, season friendly platter of cheese.  Cheese boards […]
