The Best Guacamole EVER!

In my humble opinion, this is probably the best guacamole ever! Like EVER! However, it’s not traditional by any means. So if that’s what you are in

Currently Loving // Falling for Fall

The wonderful and magically season we call Fall is here and I’m over the moon! With it brings a soft crispness in the air, leaves that turn brilliant shades of copper and golden sunshine, a wardrobe full of thick sweaters to snuggle up in and juicy apples ripe for the picking. Gone are lazy days soaking up the sun at the beach and weekend barbecues with friends and family. However,

Blueberry + Roasted Peach Ice Cream Sandwiches

Okay, so these Blueberry + Roasted Peach Ice Cream Sandwiches are feeling a little behind, especially with how fall-like the weather has been here in Minneapolis. However, I’m not complaining as I LOVE Fall! Then again, maybe this is me inwardly denying the fact that I’m not ready for what comes after fall… the bad word which will remain unmentioned. Therefore I just may be doing what ever I can

Oven Roasted Ribs with a Peachy-Bourbon BBQ Sauce

I’m not sure if I can fully accept that summer is coming to a close in no time at all! How did this happen?

Top 12 Cookbooks I Cannot Live Without

Is it wrong to hoard cookbooks? At what point should I consider it a problem, because I’m pretty sure I have a LOT of cookbooks. Well, let me rephrase that – I HAD a lot of cookbooks over the years. However, moving as often as we do, it’s been rather hard to keep up with my cookbook hoarding tendencies. Having to whittle down my library with each move has not

How to Have an Impromptu Summer Picnic in Style

Where has the summer gone? It’s already mid-July and I feel like I’ve barely taken advantage of these blissful summer days. Don’t you just hate that? You look forward to these magical days all winter long – the list of things you want to see and do is seriously a mile long. Yet actually accomplishing all of them never seems to happen.

The Peachy Keen Cocktail

You know it’s officially summer when the farmer’s markets are overflowing with a tempting variety of sweet peaches. I’ve been especially drawn to these punched-down versions of a white peach, called a Donut Peach. I love their little squatty, orbital bodies, haha! They really do resemble a donut in a way, however, the flavor is so incredible. Delicately sweet with a hint of floral. I’m dreaming of all the things
