ina garten day!

My obsession with Queen Ina is no secret. I basically want to be the Barefoot Contessa when I grow up (let’s be real, I’d be a more hillbilly version but still) – I want to buy “good” olive oil and “good” dijon mustard, have roast chicken Fridays and […]

quick and easy pumpkin muffins

October is my month dudes. I love Halloween, apple-y and cinnamon-y scented candles, the cooler autumn air, black cats, pumpkin flavored everything and spooky movies. So of course, as of October 1st, I had to get cookin’ with some pumpkin. We have a breakfast club at work and […]

raspberry & blueberry pie

Cold weather be damned, I wanted a summer pie! I stumbled upon the recipe below and thought I’d give it a whirl even though I’ve only made one other pie crust from scratch before (they can be intimidating to make). Despite the lengthy time this recipe takes, it’s […]
