Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad

I’ve had this broccoli salad recipe for years, and I’m not sure how it’s never made it on the blog before now.  I’m not even sure where I got the recipe from at this point, but I do remember making it over and over...

Zucchini Bacon and Mozzarella Quiche

Zucchini Bacon and Mozzarella Quiche

If you’ve still got zucchini overflowing from your garden, this is the perfect time to make this lightened up quiche recipe.  I made this for a Saturday lunch a few weekends ago and Mike and I both really enjoyed it. I love fresh zucchini,...

I can’t believe it’s been 10 weeks now that I’ve been writing about Scamp! I’ve enjoyed sharing my puppy with you and am so grateful to Nutro for giving me this opportunity. Scamp is grateful too – he LOVES his Nutro food and has been...

Cinnamon Biscuits

These cinnamon biscuits are like a cross between a gooey cinnamon roll and a comforting breakfast biscuit. I’m not sure why I never tried to combine the two before, but trust me when I say that this idea is a good one. You get...

Saturdays with Scamp: Updates

Scamp Maltipoo Puppy

Based on some comments I received last week, apparently I owe you guys some updates on my puppy.  I guess it’s only fair after you gave me such good advice! As far as the bells go, we’ve made amazing progress. I followed everybody’s advice...

It’s the middle of August, school is starting, and summer is almost over. Naturally, this is the perfect time to post a round-up of my favorite summer recipes. I’m nothing if not timely. But hey, if you’re like me, you’ll want to extend the...
