Small Batch Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze

Yesterday, my dear friend came over with her husband and new baby to watch the Georgia v. LSU game (I’m still not ready to comment on this).  While I’m decent at meal planning for the week or knocking things off my to-do list at work, I’m terrible at self-care.  Not the massage or mani/pedi self-care…

Healthy Baked Coconut Shrimp

Here I am, bringing you another easy but delicous weeknight meal!  I’ve had coconut shrimp at a few different restaurants, and I don’t want to brag but these are better than any coconut shrimp I’ve gotten…anywhere.  They’re not fried and soggy.  They’re baked and crispy.  And they have coconut oil in them, and, therefore, they…

Weeknight Chicken Tortellini Soup

If chicken soup is good for the soul…then chicken tortellini soup is even better.  Chicken soup has a warmness that’s undeniable and adding some tortellini to the mixture makes it even more fulfilling and cozy.  This meal is perfect for a fall weeknight.  We made it last night after a busy day of work, then…

Baked Teriyaki Salmon with Roasted Broccoli

Today was the first day of true “organized” activities for the kiddos.  I took B to her first ballet class and John took C to soccer.  Apparently, C fared much better than B.  They wouldn’t let me watch or stand near her room.  Instead, I had to eaves drop on all of the dance moms…

Sheet Pan Chicken Caprese

Just so you don’t get it twisted…it’s still summer.  Heirloom tomatoes are still at Whole Foods.  Corn is still being sold.   Peaches are abundant.  There’s no reason to panic, people.  It’s totally summer for a couple more weeks.  I refuse to go all fall on y’all until it’s officially fall.  I feel like starting to…

No Churn S’mores Ice Cream

I’m continuing the everlasting summer train, even though you’d never know it was summer based on this weather.  It’s been cold and rainy for the last few days, only to be followed by an impending hurricane coming to the East coast on Thursday to undoubtedly drench the area even more.  That’s okay because ice cream…

Traditional Basil Pesto Pasta with Chicken and Peas

Seriously though, I’ve got the end-of-summer blues.  I go back to teaching on Tuesday (which I’m very excited about), but there’s something so sad about summer ending.  The ease of lazily waking up (and, trust me, “lazily” has a different meaning with two small children, but at least we weren’t having to rush out of…

S’mores Campfire Bars

If you haven’t been eating s’mores, have you even summered yet?  You better hurry because you only have a few more days left <<sob>>.  C has been learning about camping at school, so we decided to make some s’mores bars because…well, it’s part of the curriculum. The weird part is this unit has been going…

Salmon with Melon, Prosciutto and Mozarella Salad

This is not really a recipe per se.  It’s more of a PSA that cantaloupe, prosciutto, and mozarella over a bed of arugula drizzled with some reduced, high-quality balsamic vinegar is amazing and should be on your table at some point this week.  It’s the forgotten salad (at least I always forget about it) that…

Funfetti Cookies

This past week, John and I went to a lawyer who specializes in estate planning.  But what “estate” do you have, Kathryn?  My thoughts exactly.  We don’t have a Ferrari parked in our townhouse parking lot, and we certainly don’t have overseas accounts from all the cash I’m raking in teaching.  Hell, we can barely…
