CREAMY BACON AND LEEK PASTA

When 2021 began, I felt like I was in a dinner rut. Even though the recipes I was cooking for dinner were all of our favorites, I felt like I was getting tired of cooking the same things over and over again. I decided to make it my goal to try one new recipe per week – super manageable, right? This recipe for Creamy Bacon and Leek Pasta was one of the first new ones I tried and let’s just say…I’ve made it three times already, and it’s only February! Whoops. 🙂 I know that goes against my goal of trying more new recipes but trust me…this one is delicious.… Read more

It’s been a loooong time, hasn’t it? The holidays came and left in a frenzy of wrapping, cooking, baking, and spending time with family (in very small groups). 2020 was a doozy, that’s for sure!

I’m finally feeling like I’m back into the swing of regular (busy) life now, and am so excited to be sharing this recipe today!… Read more

AMAZON STOCKING STUFFERS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

Are you in the holiday spirit yet?! This year will definitely be different in many ways, but one thing still remains the same…the need for finding awesome and useful gifts for our loved ones! Last year we created three different stocking stuffer gift guides – stocking stuffers for her, stocking stuffers for him, and stocking stuffers for baby. Just yesterday we added another guide to that list – stocking stuffers for kids. Our love for stocking stuffers is still going strong (stockings are truly my favorite part of Christmas gift giving/receiving!) and our love of Amazon…well, let’s not even discuss how many orders we’ve placed during the pandemic alone.… Read more

Happy Holiday season! We’re at you today for the first time in a while…is anyone else having a hard time keeping up with everything this year?! OK, glad it’s not just us. 🙂 I sat down yesterday to create this list of inexpensive stocking stuffers for kids because – holiday shopping time is here!

MINI PUMPKIN MUFFINS

These pumpkin mini muffins are full of wholesome, natural ingredients and are so easy to make. This recipe is super kid-friendly and tastes absolutely delicious, with just the right blend of spices!

I’ve clearly been on a mini muffin kick over the past few months, and with good reason – they’re perfect for little toddler hands to grab and gobble. 🙂 They’re also just so much cuter than regular muffins, and are perfect for adults when they want just a little *pop* of something sweet. It’s been hotter-than-you-know-where here in New Jersey over the past several days, and between the heat wave and the pandemic…I’ve been dreaming of cool, crisp, Fall days.… Read more
