Rustic Blueberry Hand Pies with Lemon Glaze

I love using the term “rustic” when it comes to food. The chicken falls of the bone before I can slice it neatly? It’s okay. It’s rustic. The brownies get a little too crumbly? It’s okay. They’re rustic. The blueberry tarts explode in the oven? You got it – rustic! Not all of our food […]

Cream Cheese Peach Danish

Puff pastry is a great product. It is so quick and easy to use. Just thaw and it is ready to use in your recipe. Two sheets come in a standard package. I had a sheet in the freezer that needs to be used. I searched Pinterest and found a yummy-looking danish recipe on Lovely […]

Blueberry Honey Smoothie

I’m definitely on a blueberry kick. Last month, we posted a Berry Beer Cooler recipe for Secret Recipe Club, and today I’ve got a yummy blueberry smoothie recipe. I love pairing blueberries with honey for smoothies, not only because the flavors really shine through, but also because it’s a much healthier option. I love the […]

Pretzel-Crusted Chicken with Mustard Dipping Sauce #secretrecipeclub

It’s time for another Secret Recipe Club recipe! Every month, a group of food bloggers trades names secret-Santa-style and makes one another’s recipes… and this month, I had the privilege of getting Culinary Adventures with Camilla. Camilla is our group’s fearless leader, and she was also the mastermind behind #HotSummerEats early this summer, which was […]

Ham Pot Pie

In February 2013, I started out on this epic journey and moved to Norfolk, Virginia. I didn’t know anyone who lived in this area except my boyfriend, who left a week later on deployment. After I dropped him off at his ship and said a teary goodbye, I drove back to my brand new house […]

Shrimp Pasta with Spinach Cashew Pesto

The last time we went shopping, they had these big, beautiful shrimp on sale. They were cleaned, cooked, and peeled… so I just couldn’t resist buying a bag of them. Seriously, when the hardest part of working with shrimp is figuring out what awesome recipe to make with them, life is pretty good. In true […]

Quick Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I enjoy making quick breads. They aren’t as time consuming as a yeast bread and you have something wonderful when you are done. I was in a baking mood the other day and was searching for a new quick bread recipe. I came across a version of the cinnamon swirl bread on Something Swanky. Reading […]

Katie’s Chicken Asparagus Quinoa Bake

I love when my family comes to visit! I’m about a 7-hour drive from where most of them live in Pennsylvania, so it’s a bit of a hike. BUT… at the end of the trip, at least they’re at the beach. Plus I always tempt them when really yummy food. Perks of being related to […]

Berry Beer Coolers #SecretRecipeClub

It’s Secret Recipe Club reveal day! Every month, our little group swaps blogs “Secret Santa” style and we all try out recipes from our assigned blogs. This month, we got Wildflour’s Cottage Kitchen, and oh man it was hard to choose which of Kelly’s recipes to try. But then we decided to have an impromptu […]
