Smoked Rosemary & Apple Naked Cake

Happy first week of November, friends! Anyone else like me and desperately trying to hold on to what ever moments of fall may be left out there in the world, despite the fact that it’s blatantly snowing outside… wet, cold, nasty snow! I’m not ready and I’m going to remain in my denial of the impending winter for as long as possible!!! Luckily, this Smoked Rosemary & Apple Naked Cake is

Spinach & Sausage Naan Flatbread with Lemon Honey

I’m always on the hunt for new appetizer ideas and this Spinach & Sausage Naan Flatbread with Lemon Honey, is a new favorite for me! I don’t know what it is about appetizers, but I will choose them any day over a heavy main course. Adam and I are notorious for going to restaurants and only ordering from their appetizer menu. Mainly because the smaller portions allow you to try

Blackberry Peach Moscato Cake… let’s be honest, you had me at Moscato! Sparkly, sweet wine wrapped up in a fruit-filled cake is a sugary dream come true!

How to Make Your Own Reed Diffusers

There’s nothing like walking into your home and having it smell incredible, am I right? I love having a candle or one of our 3 misting oil diffusers going any time we are at home. Problem is that I can only use the candles when I’m home and the water in the misting oil diffusers evaporate within a few hours, plus require electricity to run. That’s why I love a

Rhubarb Rose Gin Sour

This Rhubarb Rose Gin Sour brings a really beautiful and delicious twist to the classic 1940s gin sour cocktail that’s made with gin, lemon juice, and sugar. More often than not, an egg white is added to the cocktail to give it a smooth, frothy consistency, that in my opinion brings this cocktail to the next level! Plus, I love how it looks, right? It’s like the cappuccino for mixed

Serious Inspiration at Kohler Design Center

You will immediately think something is seriously wrong with me, but a beautifully designed kitchen or bathroom makes my heart skip a dozen beats. I don’t know what it is that has me so excited when I see the perfect faucet paired with just the right type of cabinetry or counter tops, but it just happens and I can’t help myself! So, I kid you not when I tell you

Herbed Tomato Galette

4th of July is one of my FAVORITE holidays! I have so many wonderful memories surrounding this yearly celebration that includes time spent with friends and family, cooking up delicious food over a hot barbecue, sticky summer weather, etching wild designs in the air with shimmery sparklers as the sun sets, and a glorious firework show to end the night.   As I get older, the excitement surrounding 4th of
