As the summer season approaches we fire up the grill and sweep off the deck. Our weekends become filled with cookouts and picnics. Whether you are a guest or a host you will at some point be thinking about what to bring or serve at a bar-b-que. Traditional coleslaw and potato salad are a must. […]

    This recipe came about in honor of “baby brina” being the size of a pineapple. I have this fun app from Ovia Pregnancy that tells me her size in relation to fruits and vegetables. Of course, I love relating my child to food already. I pray everyday that she is not a pick […]

My dad loves his Italian deli’s and has passed that on to me. He does his best to find the best sandwich place (among other things) where ever he travels. When he would come home from a trip he would always have stories about where he ate. A good sandwich goes a long way. It […]

  This recipe is quite possible the quickest dessert you can make. Birch beer granita to me is a fancy way of saying birch beer ice. You are really just pouring it in a pan and freezing it up. Making the vanilla whipped cream fresh definitely adds an extra touch. When the whipped cream melts […]

  Sides at a bar-b-que can be just as exciting as what is on the grill. Pasta salads are bar-b-que staple. I love the traditional mayonnaise based salad but it has been losing popularity. This fig summer squash orzo salad with yuzu vinaigrette is a fresh new take on the ever loved pasta salad. Giving […]

    Memorial Day weekend is upon us again. I start dreaming of summer farmers markets and crab shacks. Brian works out of Boston frequently. One summer we took a drive and went through Portland Maine and Kennebunkport eating anywhere we could. We discovered so many fun places a long the way. You can read […]

Sometimes drinking plain water can be tough for me. Being pregnant I am trying to drink as much as I can.  Often, I am finding myself falling behind because I literally get bored of drinking water. That is where making lemonade came in. This blackberry basil lemonade is refreshing and just so pretty! I make […]

Whether you have people visiting or you are preparing a spread you need this easy overnight Greek egg bake. This egg bake has English muffins that become packed with flavor from the cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, […]

One of the foods I need to stay away from while pregnant is sushi.  A small price to pay for having a little miracle I know. But, it is one of things I am really missing. Yes, I miss having brie or the occasional glass of wine. I also miss my turkey sandwiches for lunch. […]

  The beginning of my pregnancy was tough. I was nauseous all day everyday with no relief. I heard of morning sickness. I expected something along those lines to happen. The all day sickness lasted week after week. For some people I know it lasts even longer than the first trimester. I am grateful I […]
