Baking Therapy and Eating Your Feelings

As I mentioned in my last post, life has been a tad bit crazy this school year. It’s also been highly emotional. Caring for my mother-in-law in her final months of life is probably the hardest thing I’ve done to date. (And it was equally, if not more, difficult for Noel since it was his… Read more »

S’Mores Cheesecake

If you follow us on Twitter or Facebook you probably saw all the mouthwatering baking we were doing last week in preparation for National Cheesecake Day! One of the prettiest ones (and equally delicious, this one has both looks and personality) was this s’mores cheesecake. We actually developed the s’mores cheesecake a year ago for our… Read more »

Eating with Kids, Not Like Kids

This post is really just a list of special considerations for those with kids that can be added to my Meal Plan Like a Boss post. As much as I wanted my kids to be extremely cultured when it came to food and despite my best attempts, they are still kids and still finicky about… Read more »

Camp Kitchen Travel Inspiration

We just got back from a marvelous two week road trip filled with amazing adventures. We had several delicious camping recipes we tried and want to share, but we were having so much fun we rarely got around to eating before dusk which means we have very few photos of said delicious food. So, until… Read more »

April Fools!

In case you couldn’t tell, that recipe we put out this morning for single serve red velvet snickerdoodle brownies was a fun little satire for April Fools’ Day. We tend to be simple folk. Mixing multiple desserts or using cake mixes isn’t really our style, even when it’s terribly popular. In case it isn’t obvious, we’ve… Read more »

Single Serve Red Velvet Snickerdoodle Brownie in a Mug

Ohmygoodness, you guys. I generally turn my nose up at mug cakes as they just can’t compare to the real thing, but I make an exception for this. Side note: I’m pretty sure I’m the original mug cake creator. I totally tried to make a single serve cake in the microwave one time when I… Read more »

Italian Style Spaghetti Squash

Apparently this dish is a metaphor for who we are. The last time we ate it, Noel turned to me, a forkful paused en route to his mouth and said, “This is totally us” as if he’d had an epiphany. “How so?” I asked, intrigued by what deep insight he had to share. “It’s healthy,… Read more »

Crumbly Apple Pie

If I had to rename fall, I think I would call it “Pie Season.”  Pumpkin, apple, pecan, even pot pies. It really doesn’t matter what kind of pie; all of them call to me as the weather turns chill and the fear of turning on my oven dissipates. I blame their simply irresistible buttery flaky crusts.

D’Deli Dalton Panini

My dear wife doesn’t seem to like sandwiches. This has been a source of great disagreement in our marriage. I, with my mad sandwich skills, can often make one she will tolerate if I have the right ingredients at my disposal. However, it wasn’t until we stumbled into a little sandwich shop named D’Deli in… Read more »
