Whatever Works

Fixing dinner with a teething, growth-spurting, crawling-all-over-and-getting-into-everything, pulling-on-your-pant-leg 9 month old can be a challenge (every parent everywhere, “wait until she’s walking!”). Each morning I imagine the delicious meal I’ll shop for, prep and cook during the day but ultimately I end up eating a bowl of Lipton’s chicken noodle soup…. sometimes I might even […]

15 Minutes to Dinner [Smokey Sausage, Kale & Sweet Potato Soup – *SPONSORED*]

Dutch Ovens & Roasted Chickpeas!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls… I am spoiled. Rotten. Stinkin’ rotten. Someone up there in foodie heaven loves me and sent me a boyfriend who bought me enameled cast iron christmas presents!
