The Best Negroni Recipe

The Best Negroni Recipe

I’ve been on a negroni kick for um… probably over a year now. At first I thought it was just a fling but at this point we’re probably officially in a long term relationship. I’ve even gotten Marc — a self-described gin hater — to like them! So I figured I’d just make it official…

Sourdough Babka

So somehow we’ve developed a joke in our family that I’m Polish. Nothing against anybody who is actually Polish, but I am NOT POLISH — I’m half Irish and half Slovak, which is NOT THE SAME, k? I’m sure you can already see how the joke developed…

Creamy Spring Pasta

Enter the perfect springtime dish. Picture this: you’re sipping a nice glass of white wine, the weather is finally that perfect temperature where it’s warm but not too hot yet, you’re on a balcony somewhere, and you have a big bowl of this pasta in front of you.

Strawberry Shortcake {low FODMAP, gluten free}

Strawberry Shortcake {low FODMAP, gluten free}

Is it strawberry season where you are??! Growing up the midwest, my memories of strawberry season are that it was a very short amount of time — like a week — in the end of May or beginning of June. We always made it a point to go strawberry picking, but we never knew when Strawberry Week was going to be, so it was kind of a game…

In the however-many-years I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve only ever posted one drink recipe! That is certainly not reflective of the amount that I enjoy a good cocktail. But the reality is…

New to FODMAPs?
Start here.

FODMAPs are fermentable carbohydrates — AKA a part of some foods (like apples, wheat, and beans) that ferment in the gut, causing stomach pain and bloating. If you’ve been diagnosed with IBS or just feel miserable every time you eat, the low FODMAP diet might be for you!

American Southwest RV Trip Guide

1300+ miles, 10 days, three amigos, one 24-foot RV. This was a trip of epic proportions very unlike anything we’d done before, but hey — after 6 months of no travel due to the pandemic, I was more than ready for it! If you’d have asked me a year ago (hell, even at the beginning of this year) if I had any desire…
