Dad’s French Toast

Every family has it’s food traditions and Christmas morning always meant sourdough french toast for me. My sister and I always did Christmas morning at our dad’s and the afternoon with our mom.

Recipe: Greek Chicken Pitas

I don’t know about you, but in the Summer I am one of those “if we aren’t grilling we aren’t eating” people. I don’t want to heat up the kitchen and I certainly don’t want to come home from the beach early so I can spend an hour cooking dinner. This recipe is easy and […]

The Quesadogga…a recipe

Lately I have been feeling left out of the Pinterest world.  More specifically, I have felt a tad jealous of all my blogging sisters and their incredibly creative and yummy creations.  You know, I’m an excellent cook, a mediocre baker and a darn good eater. Why can’t I be pinned once in awhile? To answer […]

Got Granola? A Go To After School Snack

Yogurt and granola has become the go-to after school snack for everyone in my family. My two elementary aged children felt it was time to give our homemade granola a make-over. Together, we came up with something pretty darn fabulous! We like it best combined with our new favorite vanilla bean Greek yogurt. Hello local […]
