Fresh Tomato Basil Salad with Ricotta & Grilled Bread

When I was pregnant with Zelda cherry tomatoes with sea salt were my go-to snack. I seriously couldn't get enough and had I known about this Fresh Tomato Basil Salad with Ricotta and Grilled Bread recipe, I know it would have been part of my regular rotation. This is the perfect summer salad! It's easy to throw …

Greek Turkey Burgers with Spiro’s Famous Tzatziki

We are officially at Lake of the Ozarks for our annual family vacation and are fully immersing ourselves in lake life and all that comes with it. The 4th of July is the perfect time to kick back, relax and enjoy the company of those around you, and nothing brings people together like delicious food. I love this recipe for …

Hot Dogs Three Ways: Chicago Style, Coney Island & Mexican Street Corn

My family and I are gearing up for our yearly trip to Lake of the Ozarks. It’s a time when we can enjoy each other’s company, relax by the lake (lake safety tips coming soon!), and eat delicious food. Since our meals are always casual, we began trying to think of ways to step up our game while keeping meals …

Fancy Tea Sandwiches with No-Nut Pesto

A few days ago, Spiro and I were sitting in my living room sipping coffee and we couldn’t stop talking about how delicious it was, and how happy we were with our new coffee/espresso maker. Our friends gifted us the Nespresso Vertuo Bundle (milk frother included) and it has been a gamechanger. The coffee is beyond amazing, …

Avocado & Sweet Potato Green Rice Bowl

Zelda has an unusual habit of eating raw spinach, kale and cilantro. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, but I have never seen a child take to greens this way. Lucky for us, getting her to eat healthy foods has never been a problem. However, I realize it might not be the same for other parents and I’m always …

Mini Chicken Schnitzels with Skinny Fries

Who knew making fries at home was easy?! I'm totally floored by Mini Chicken Schnitzels and Skinny Fries with Garlic Aioli. If I had known French fries were this simple to create at home, I would have started making them a long time ago. Seriously, they were better than eating out...and probably a little healthier! The best part? You don't …

Leftover Thanksgiving Quesadillas

For Thanksgiving we took a nontraditional route and had our meal catered by Real Urban BBQ. It gave us more time together as a family and saved my mom a ton of stress. She was so happy in the days leading up knowing she wouldn't be in the kitchen all day! Even with all the yumminess, leftovers were expected. (Sometimes I think Thanksgiving …

Spooky Mummy Sandwiches

Can you believe it is already October? We are starting to plan Zelda’s Halloween costume, which changes daily. One minute she wants to be a hot dog and the next minute a ghost kitty. I’m thinking she might have to do more than one this year because she loves Halloween. We are planning to celebrate all month long! The first dish …

Grilled ABC Sandwiches

When I have time to cook with Zelda I always make sure to involve her in every part of the process that I can. She has really started to take an interest in cooking and always tells me, “I want to help!”, which is pretty much the cutest thing ever. With these Grilled ABC Sandwiches, I allowed her to …

Rainbow Macaroni Salad

While fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd, my brain changes seasons when the sun goes down on Labor Day. After that, I switch into cold weather mode – bring on the thick knit sweaters and black leather boots! To close the summer season, I wanted to share one of my favorite meals to bring to a …
