“Pizza” Spinach Salad
Pizza…but make it SALAD. Let’s be real: When am I not wanting pizza? I pretty much want it any time, any day, but I doubt my body would tolerate all that cheese day in and day out. When I’ve got a hankering for pizza in a given week but it’s not in the cards, I […]
Tuna + Pickle Pasta Salad
Whether it’s lunch time or snack time or you’re off to a summer BBQ, this creamy, tangy, crunchy, dilly pasta salad is a total crowd pleaser that you’ll keep going back to.
Caprese Pasta Salad
All the best things about caprese but less fancy, kid-friendly, and in the form of a pasta salad.
“Better-Than-Takeout” Chinese Chicken
Chickity-China, the Chinese CHICKEN! (Name that song…) OK fine, I’ll tell you: it’s “One Week” by Barenaked Ladies, and I have vivid memories of rollerblading and rocking out to this song on the radio in my parents’ unfinished basement in the late 90s. But one thing I do NOT remember is having Chinese, ever, during […]
Pesto Pasta Alla Vodka
About lastnight…this mama was in the kitchen, and I tackled a new pasta dish that I’ve been wanting to try for quite some time. I love love love whipping up pasta dishes–and of course, I also love that more often than not, everyone in the family approves. THIS dish, inspired by Half Baked Harvest was […]
Sweet + Spicy Salad with Chipotle Ranch
I have been sitting on this salad recipe for way too long–OK just a few weeks, but still–and it’s time to get it out there. It’s simple but SO DANG GOOD. It’s at that level of goodness that urged me to have this for lunch 2 weeks in a row. The recipe inspiration comes from […]
The not-so-picture-perfect, untold stories we keep
Social media is like a picture frame, a billboard. Each image is meticulously chosen by someone. A seemingly perfect shot. And put on display for all to see. But what we forget, what we don’t see, is the photographer behind it. The reason why it was framed the way it was framed. What was on […]
Livian’s Natural Birth Story
I thought maybe it was the last night. Bennett kissed me on the cheek and then slid down to kiss my almost 41-week belly, hanging over the edge of the ottoman. “I love you, baby,” he whispered between his lips pressed against her, moving inside me, until her home became firm, hard as a rock, […]
Grilled Chicken with Peach Chutney Recipe
This recipe, with its juicy, plump peaches, always takes me right back to Davidson, North Carolina. Every Saturday in the summer, we would go to the Davidson Farmer’s Market, and Bennett and I would pick out the perfect crate of local, softball-sized, southern peaches. I have to say: Nothing compares to peaches from the South. […]
