Lazy Wonton Soup

Lazy Wonton Soup

Lazy wonton soup: for when you don’t want to spend money on takeout, but you don’t want to spend time making dumplings. Wonton-filling meatballs and wonton wrapper noodles is the easy solution! These little meatballs taste just like my favorite takeout Chinese, so good that I […]

Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries

Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries

Okay, let’s start by acknowledging that this is definitely not a recipe. This is a silly-simple, scary-addictive snack that can stand on its own or blend perfectly on a cheese platter. Sometimes it’s nice to have a small bowl of delicious poppable bites, whether it’s […]

Harvest Sunrise

Harvest Sunrise

Today I’m sharing a bright, bubbly, celebratory brunch drink… …because this morning, we closed on our first home!! I’m over-the-moon excited and I wish I could cheers each and every single one of you through the screen! We’ve bought our very own miner’s cabin vintage 1900, […]

Fig & Prosciutto Bruschetta

Fig & Prosciutto Bruschetta

Hello, new brunch favorite for the next forever! These bruschetta are seriously sweet-salty, creamy-crunchy perfection! We’re layering toasted baguette slices with tangy-sweet fig butter + smooth, creamy mascarpone + salty prosciutto, with a big shake of freshly cracked pepper on top. Every single time I’ve walked into […]

French Onion Grilled Cheese

French Onion Grilled Cheese

Colorado’s winter-spring waltz has my food cravings all confused. With snow dusting the ground in the morning and hot shorts-ready sun in the afternoon, I don’t know if I want a big bowl of chili or a smoothie. These fit right in with cozy comfort food – melty […]

Irish Corned Beef Tacos

Irish Corned Beef Tacos

Kate, you might be thinking, corned beef season ended like two weeks ago. And yes, okay, I’m way late to the party on this one. But here’s my counter offer: corned beef is delicious, and it’s still on sale at my grocer, and why do we […]

Samoas Cookie Pie

Samoas Cookie Pie

I can’t let pie day slide by without a good celebration! And parties with food always win out over mathematics, so let’s taking the sweet route today, shall we?

Healthy “Ice Cream” Breakfast Bowl

Healthy “Ice Cream” Breakfast Bowl

When I fall in love with something new, I get the worst kind of tunnel vision… can’t-eat, can’t-sleep, can’t-focus-on-anything-else excitement because this is so amazing! (Just kidding about the can’t-eat part. I can always eat.) So I disappeared last week because I got so obsessed with something […]

Skillet Chicken with Mushrooms & Olives

Skillet Chicken with Mushrooms & Olives

Last night I put all my favorite things in a skillet and magic happened. Chicken thighs are poached in red wine yet crispy on top, mushrooms and tomatoes and olives all melt together, and we only have to wash one pan! This barely misses the […]

Cheddar Pepper-Jelly Thumbprint Cookies

Cheddar Pepper-Jelly Thumbprint Cookies

Savory cookies kinda feel like cheating… mostly because I can eat them a whole handful at a time like crackers. No sugar! They’re practically good for you! Right? Right! Think goldfish-cheddar-cracker meets sweet-spicy-jelly meets the easiest five-ingredient thumbprint cookie. These make me want to invite […]
