Peanut Butter Bacon Buttermilk Belgian Waffles

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

On Tuesday, I stepped inside of a hospital for the first time since my little sister, Rebecca’s accident. It never occurred to me, that this would be “A Thing.” I actually didn’t even realize that I hadn’t been inside of one since the beginning of 2013. Mikey and I were simply going to visit someone

Happy Monday! Can Mondays be happy? Maybe if you pack this for lunch 😀 I made you a healthy version of chicken salad! There’s no mayo in sight, but there *is* a ton of flavor. It’s amazing over greens, like I’ve served it here, but it also makes an awesome sandwich, and it’s fantastic served

Fruit for Friday! I think I typically give you guys like sweets or cocktails on Fridays but with all of the sunny Seattle weather lately, this just feels right. And I mean that, coupled with the fact that I’ve been staring longingly at the photos from my family Caribbean cruise last year has really got me hankering

Mini Thin Mint Cheesecake Parfaits

People still have Girl Scout Cookies around, right? I know…I totally did this last year, too. I posted a Thin Mint recipe super late. Actually, last year’s recipe was posted at the end of June, so I’ve arguably done a much better job this year! Plus, Keebler makes a grasshopper cookie that you could use, if your

What I’m Still Learning About Blogging

Today I kinda just feel like rambling and getting a few things off my chest, so that’s exactly what I’m going to do! I want to talk a little about some stuff that after 5 years of blogging, I’m just now starting to figure out… Because I am the product of an English degree, and
