Angel Food Cupcakes with Blood Orange Frosting

Summer has finally arrived! Besides the beautiful weather, I also love summer because of the celebrations of the season. Summer produce is at its peak as well, and I can't wait to get back to the farmer’s market and pick up colorful fresh fruits and veggies of all kinds. This time of year I start to gravitate towards lighter meals...

Apple & Dried Cherry Coleslaw

Spring is in full effect with summer fast-approaching, which means it's time to dust off the patio furniture and fire up the grill. I've actually had my grill out for a few weeks now and take every chance I get to grill our dinner. Burgers, steak, chicken, even veggies, I love grilling season! Less time in the kitchen, less mess...

Hearty Tortellini Soup

Although spring has officially sprung, it definitely still feels like winter across most of the country. For most of us, we had a taste of spring much earlier than usual, but then old man winter had to come back and remind us that he wasn't gone quite yet! So while it's still cold outside, I'm enjoying my favorite soups for...

This Butternut Squash Lasagna recipe is vegetarian,...

Breakfast Quiche Bites

The kids are settling in to a new school year and we are all trying to get back into the swing of things. It seems like getting back into our routines is always a challenge the first few weeks, but I'm starting to get a handle on all the craziness. School, homework, sports, and other activities, I know you fully...

Chopped Cobb Salads

During the summer I love eating salads. They're light, fresh and healthy, and easy to put together for lunch or dinner. Plus there's no need to turn on the oven! Now that my kids are older they are really enjoying salads too, so I've been playing around in the kitchen with different ingredients so I have a lot of options...

Individual Banana Split Sundaes

During the summer, ice cream is a staple in our house. Honestly it's a staple all year round, but we eat a lot of ice cream during the summer especially. It's the perfect dessert after any meal, and it's just enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. Even though my family has dessert each night, I do try to make it...
