With the 4th of July just around the corner, I’ve got a brand new recipe for you that would be the perfect addition to your holiday barbecue! Coleslaw is obviously a staple this time of year, but how about switching it up with a Green Apple Cucumber version instead of typical cabbage?
I’m so excited to be offering you an AWESOME giveaway today. Kamikoto knives are designed for chefs and serious home cooks, and I used one when chopping up a large eggplant for my new Cheesy Eggplant Bake recipe (which I am also sharing below).
My family is a huge fan of scones, and these Raspberry Almond Scones below (flavored with almond extract) are no exception! If pancakes and waffles are your go-to weekend breakfast treats, then I’d suggest switching things up with this recipe instead.
I’ve always been a potato cake fan but never tried making them with mashed potatoes (as opposed to shredded potatoes) until now. What I love about this Smashed Potato Cakes with Kale recipe, aside from the taste, is how it can easily pass for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Well, today is my birthday, and I am turning the big FOUR-OH! So, what better way to ring in another decade than with a super scrumptious homemade Chocolate Chip Bundt cake?
I was brainstorming what types of super EASY dinners I might be in the mood to make when arriving back home right at 5:00 pm on a school night after a busy weekend out of town. So, the winning home cooked dinner turned out to be Simple Seafood with a side of the Sheet Pan Brussels Sprouts and Potatoes

This is a guest post by one of my closest friends (for almost two decades now!), Erin, who recently started her very own food blog – The Open Road Kitchen. Be sure to check it out and also follow her on Facebook and/or Instagram for updates! I consider myself an open-minded friend. But when my dear comrade, Lisa Leake, first introduced me to her 100 Days of Real Food idea (back in 2010), I have to admit I had a difficult time not judging her decision to eliminate processed foods. The Lisa and Jason I’d known for years were just like me and my husband: total foodies open to trying anything, at least once. However, that night as we dined at one of our favorite restaurants here in Charlotte, I could tell something had suddenly and drastically changed my friends’ approach to food. Rather than enjoying how artistically the menu was curated, they instead dissected it for its exclusion of things like organic vegetables and locally raised, grass-fed beef. And, to my dismay, they actually demanded the attention of the head chef to discuss the menu and what items would be appropriate to order based on their 100 Days “purity” pledge. I can’t even remember what they ordered. But as the night concluded, I realized that their commitment to cutting out processed foods was not only about changing their approach to eating. It was about pushing a movement forward for the education of all. To educate is to become an expert on your subject and to understand the obstacles that the weary present you. This is the beauty of 100 Days of Real Food. It starts as a challenge to try to cut out processed foods by teaching you what qualifies as real food and what foods to avoid. It then enables you to evolve […]
Gluten-free certainly is a buzzword these days, but there are sooo many gluten-free products out there that are made of processed junk. Not these cookies!
I have to say, I might be the minority here, but I don’t like the Instant Pot! I honestly went into this with an open mind and have used it several times for all different types of recipes to really get a good feel for what it can do.
Today I’m excited to tell you all about King Arthur’s new whole-grain Sprouted Wheat Flour and how it turned out in the yummy savory scone recipe I’m sharing!
