If you're like me, there are some days that I just do NOT feel like cooking. I prep my menus on Sundays for the upcoming week with the best of intentions to eat healthy, not spend money, and cook in every night. Then the week happens and your plans can quickly be thrown off course. For [...]

Marinated Garden Cucumbers

By |July 29th, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Large Groups, Vegan|

One thing I love about summer is all of the people I am close to who get their acts together and grow vegetables in their gardens! I am not one of these people, so every summer I am the happy recipient of any produce they can spare. One of my favorite veggies to receive are [...]

The Perfect Manhattan

Do you have a signature cocktail? One that you know you can order if you are feeling indecisive during a night out? Mine has to be a Manhattan. To be honest, I was never that impressed until my husband started making them. It all started one dark and stormy evening. Adam and I had both [...]

Easy Gourmet Green Beans

By |July 15th, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Large Groups, Party Food, Vegan|

This recipe is soooooo easy! I made this about 3 times per week last summer with green beans from my mother-in-law's garden. It's the perfect side for a lean protein for a healthy meal, and is tasty enough to stand up to a heartier main dish. Fresh garden green beans are the best, but in [...]
