Steamed Artichokes with Creamy Garlic Butter

Artichokes have to be the most intimidating, least intuitive veggie for a first-time attempt. They take a little work to eat, but that’s somehow part of their weird charm – you have to earn the sweet, tender heart at the center. These prickly little guys […]

Jalapeño Popper Spaghetti Squash

Jalapeño Popper Spaghetti Squash

We’ve been loading spaghetti squash up with everything for easy low-carb dinners lately, so I had to share one of my favorites! Diced jalapeños for flavor and heat, crispy salty bacon bits, and (most importantly) three types of cheese make this creamy and so satisfying. 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 […]

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, […]
