Dark Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Last year when Kathryne and I were living in Austin for a month, we spent basically as much time as possible hanging out with our favorite people there — Jeanine and Jack, the talented duo behind Love & Lemons. And we had the best time together. From taking a tour all around town...

Chicken Florentine Grilled Cheese

This post is sponsored by Arla. Happy #NationalGrilledCheeseDay, everyone! Oh man, how should we celebrate?? Should we serenade each other with our all-time favorite cheesiest songs?  (<– I call dibs on “My Heart Will Go On!”, a.k.a. the ultra-dramatic-background-music-to-my-first-kiss-at-freshman-homecoming, to which I may have memorized every word and learned the accompanying pennywhistle part, of course....

My All-Time Favorite Gumbo

During the seven years that I worked my last job — spent mostly in a windowless, florescently-lit, cubicle of an office — I was always desperate to escape the building for lunch. It wasn’t that I didn’t love my job.  (I did.)  It wasn’t that I wanted to go home...

My Favorite 5-Ingredient Recipes

Who’s down for some new 5-ingredient recipes to try?! I thought you might be.  ;) It’s no secret that I’m all about easy recipes that also require a very easy (short!) ingredient list.  But I must say, I had no idea just how many 5-ingredient recipes we already had in...

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. Buzz, buzz, buzz. I feel like all I’m doing this week is buzzing from one meeting, one appointment, one errand, one grocery store run (ok, make that like four grocery store runs), one lunch date, one happy hour, one sushi night to the...

Mushroom Bolognese

I don’t know how, but for some crazy reason, I fell two seasons behind on Downton Abbey these past few years. And after literally every person on the planet seemed to watch and rave about the grand finale a few weeks ago, I realized it was high time to catch up.  I didn’t...

10-Minute Pineapple Black Bean Tostadas

This post is sponsored by Old El Paso. Happy Friday, friends! Man, I don’t know about you, but I am ready for the weekend. I had all of these grand plans for getting things done this past week.  But thanks to a lovely syncing error with Quickbooks, my business tax preparation...

Creamy Farro with White Beans and Kale

Three years ago this spring, I randomly agreed to go on this cool culinary press trip to San Antonio.  I was totally pumped about the itinerary they had planned for us, couldn’t wait to explore the city, and could already taste the tacos.  But, there was one catch — I didn’t...
