Roasted Pork Loin Sandwich with Cherry Sauce

I have been so MIA, and it’s really unacceptable.

Super moist and flavorful pork loin, spicy arugula, and a homemade cherry sauce all stuffed in a Hawaiian bun! | #recipeI’m super sorry, guys! I’ve been enjoying time with my family, soaking up the sunshine, and barely cooking at all!

Actually, I am not doing anymore soaking of sunshine because I managed to get burned as shit during my very first trip to the beach. Well, done Rachael! Way to go! I can’t pick the aloe from my parents’ back yard fast enough to apply it to my ridiculously red skin. It’s even sillier because *only* my back side is burned. The front is completely fine and still Seattle pale. -sigh-

Since I’m here in Florida with my family, I thought it’d be great to share one of my mom’s famous recipes!

Frozen Blueberry Margaritas

Blueberries, lime, and just a touch of agave combine for a gorgeous and delicious margarita! | #recipe

I have something real good to get you through this hump day! The best cocktail on the face of the earth—margaritas! Am I alone in thinking that margaritas are the most delicious adult beverage? Especially frozen and with lots of salt. I typically order just plain lime margaritas (or jalapeño, because oh mah gawd spicy

Strawberry Tartlets

These adorable little tarts are the best way to use your Spring strawberries! | #recipe

How about a little sweetness to start your week? Yes, it’s time for yet another strawberry recipe here on the blog. But really, is it possible to have too many of those? I say no. Strawberries are quite possibly the very best part of Spring. And, I just bough another two pints yesterday soooo… I guess expect

Too Easy: Minty Watermelon, Blackberry, and Feta Salad

Refreshing fruit, salty feta, and tangy-sweet dressing---this is a perfect salad for warmer weather! | #recipe

I’m really into fruit salads lately… It must be the sunshine, and blooming flowers, and all around “Spring-y-ness.” But, yeah. I posted this one not too long ago, and it also heavily featured watermelon. This one is a bit different though, because there’s a slightly savory element going on with the cheese and vinegar. It’s

Happy Seis de Mayo? Bahahah. Did any of you do anything fun yesterday? I didn’t really, except I ate this chili! I don’t know why, but I’ve been craving chili dogs somethin’ fierce!  And not just any chili dogs, the kind with the all meat chili on top—NO BEANS! So yes, this is a ground beef chili

Peanut Butter Bacon Buttermilk Belgian Waffles

Crispy outside, soft and fluffy inside, and loaded with crispy bacon and crunchy peanut butter! | #recipe

These may look like standard waffles… …but I promise you that they are anything but! But before we get to them, can we talk about the little “mishap” that happened this past weekend? If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this photo. Yes. That would be the glass bowl of my beautiful

Strawberry-Raspberry Cheesecake Squares

These pretty, little cheesecake squares are creamy, dreamy, no-bake delights! | #recipe

Totally found the coolest thing ever at the grocery store the other day… …Greek yogurt cream cheese! I hadn’t planned on making cheesecake, but as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. I’ve actually used full-on Greek yogurt in my cheesecake before (see here), but the thought of it already being
