Tried & True

I am SUPER excited to tell you about a new series that I am doing on this blog.  There are SO many great bloggers out there displaying amazing recipes and photos daily.  In fact my feedly page has over 100+ blogs that I check out daily. I comment. I pin. I save. I drool...

Oreo Cheesecake Cups

Growing up I loved when Summer time came around each year.  One it meant no more school and two I was able to spend time with my friends and family traveling to theme parks and swimming. Now I am all pale and I start sweating after 5 minutes in the sun.  Sunblock 50spf is...

Prosciutto Spinach Bowtie Pasta

I’m apologizing right now because I am in a huge pasta phase.  Not sure why it’s pasta because it is usually Mexican food.  I also feel like it’s the hardest to photograph too.  As much as I try I can never make my spaghetti noodles look perfectly swirled around the fork. Who cares I...

Wild Boar Pappardelle

Last May Shaun and I took a vacation to Italy.  We spent 10 days there traveling to Venice, Florence and Rome.  It was so serene there to say the least.  Everyone has a different mentality than in the US and it’s a slower paced system.  You know the saying, “We live to work and...

Sundried tomato crusted salmon

This past weekend it was so nice outside.  For it being the end of May and living outside of Houston that means we weren’t sweating.  We seriously spent most of our time laying out on blankets and playing with Olivia and her bajillion little toys.  She honestly could care less about the toys because...
