Last weekend my wonderful mother-in-law came to visit and brought us a gorgeous watermelon grown old world style by an 80-year-old man in Paso Robles, California where she lives. I knew I had to do something special with it, so I put this mama brain to use brainstorming ideas. Then, as I was scrolling through [...]

Almost 3 years ago now, Rusty and I honeymooned in Kauai (see pre manbun Rusty?). It was an amazing trip filled with hiking, kayaking, adventuring, and of course, eating.

This is a good one, a real original. What we've got here is a cool, crisp salad that works well in winter, filled with many of the flavors from my bacon apple nut brussies (a real hit with you guys), but with a unique twist. Brussel sprouts and apples are in season right now, and I just [...]

festive arugula salad

It seems like all summer long, I crave salads; it turns into a salad a day kind of season. Farmer's market is loaded with all kinds of veggies that are fresh, delicious, and just asking to be tossed in a bog bowl, dressed up nicely, and enjoyed in the sun. But what happens when the [...]
