I love late summer. First, school begins soon! But, more about that later. More importantly, my garden is mature and fruitful, pun intended. (Tomatoes are a fruit, get it? ha!) I have more tomatoes than any family can consume. Therefore, I have been hunting for ways to creatively use them. I love baked fresh tomatoes. They have […]Read More.
Somehow I forgot about the simple pleasure of a strawberry smoothie. I’m so glad I’ve rediscovered it and just in time for summer too.

My husband’s side of the family has some strong Danish roots. His grandmother was adamant that each of her grandchildren learn as much as possible about what that meant to her. And, mostly it meant food. She was an amazing cook. I have heard legendary stories about the food she created over the years. She […]Read More.

For this slow cooker recipe Sara and I did a twist on eggs Florentine. We used the My Clean Kitchen breakfast sausage recipe, added some eggs, spinach and feta cheese to make this perfect clean eating breakfast casserole. Since it cooks while you sleep, this dish would be great to make when you know you will have a busy morning. It would also be the perfect holiday breakfast since it requires absolutely no cooking in the morning!Read More.

First of all let me just say OMG. That is right…these things are so good they have me talking like a teenage girl. Trust me…that doesn’t happen very often. The roll part is awesome. You don’t even miss the white flour. And the filling…soooo good. Butter, raw sugar, and cinnamon…need I saw more? Now lets talk icing. I went back and forth on this.

I’ve been trying to figure out what to bring to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. Jessica and I discussed a couple of options and came to the Pumpkin Butter idea! It worked out perfectly because the local Farm Market had these amazing Heirloom Pumpkins that were grown locally. The seeds originated in Italy many many years ago. I assume they were brought over by an immigrant. They look nothing like pumpkins the but inside is a beautiful, dark orange and made a beautiful Pumpkin Butter.Read More.
