Hamburger Stroganoff (aka Homemade Hamburger Helper)

Homemade Hamburger Helper

Let me preface this post by saying that personally, I am not a fan of Hamburger Helper. I actually never even liked it as a kid and would complain when my mom made it for dinner. When I tell you that this meal is...

Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes

Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes

How cute are these cupcakes? They’re summery and pretty, and I smile every time I look at them. I made these lemon raspberry cupcakes for a wedding a few weeks ago and from what I heard, they were a big hit! Of course I...

Saturdays with Scamp – a giveaway!

Scamp maltipoo puppy

Scamp has had a pretty fun week this week. He got to go on a few bike rides (he rides in my bike basket – I’ll have to show you a picture next week, so cute!), and on Wednesday, he graduated from puppy class!...

Roasted Kohlrabi

Roasted Kohlrabi

I’ve mentioned it before, but my CSA share has got me eating vegetables I’ve never even heard of before. Am I the only one who had never heard of kohlrabi? I had to google it before I even knew what it was! I asked about...

Pulled pork sandwiches might be among my favorite meals of all time. Actually any sandwich that can be made in the crockpot tends to fall under the category of things I love. (e.g. buffalo chicken sandwiches and french dip sandwiches…yum!) This Hawaiian pulled pork...

Saturdays with Scamp: Things I’ve learned

Scamp maltipoo puppy

A few things I’ve learned since Scamp became ours: 1. Puppies are work. A lot of work. 2. Somehow it has become normal for me to talk to random people in my life about Scamp’s poop. How did this become ok?? 3. It is...

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Let me just come out and say it – these are absolutely amazing.  I never thought I liked red velvet cake until I tried these cupcakes. Granted, my only experience with it came from watching Steel Mangolias, and who would ever want to try red...
