Today is the day our Austin adventure ends. We’re packing our bags and preparing for long drives north, back to reality and moderation and freezing cold temperatures.
Our month in Austin is coming to a close far too quickly. I only have two more nights left before we pack our bags and head north.
Don’t you hate it when your brilliant ideas don’t pan out? I’ve spent the week in the kitchen and I don’t have much to show for it.
This post is brought to you by DeLallo Foods. Growing up, my younger brothers and I didn’t make dinner easy for our mom.
Who here eats breakfast every morning? I do! It’s really not an option for me. I’ll turn into a shaking, starving, mumbling mess a few hours into the day if I skip it.
This soup recipe has been a long time coming! Over the years, I’ve made some lackluster lentil soups that never saw the light of day.
I have quite a cookbook collection. They’ve overflowed my bookcases and spilled over to both coffee tables.
We’re seven days into our month away in Austin. So far, our daily routine has been moving at a more relaxed pace.
I haven’t done any real cooking in our Austin kitchen yet, but this homemade Thai pineapple dish is looking pretty tempting after all the tacos I ate yesterday!
Hello from Austin, Texas! Ali and I left snowy Kansas City yesterday morning and drove eleven hours south.
As I edited these sparkling, hot pink photos, I realized my “Super Bowl” cocktail looks more like a Valentine’s Day cocktail.
I feel like I’ve been trudging through mud all week. That’s a phrase my mom uses fairly often when she’s having a hard time getting stuff done.
Where did the weekend go? Serious question. I enjoyed a few too many heavy meals over the past couple of days, so I thought we could lighten up a little with my favorite vegan dinners.
Cookie and Kate have a house guest for the next few days. His name is Henry and he is Ali’s sweet Yorkie-maltese mix.
I have news! I can’t believe I haven’t told you all sooner. Seems like most big blogger announcements involve engagements (nope), babies (definitely not) and cookbook deals (not yet).
This post was sponsored by Whole Foods Market, America’s Healthiest Grocery Store. I knew I liked Hilary when she offered me a bowl of homemade soup shortly after arriving at her office.
I’m just not that into smoothies. It’s nothing against fruit (really fruit, it’s me, not you). I just like to eat my food.
Remember that summertime arugula pizza with tomato and squash strewn on top like confetti? Meet her sister pizza.
Cookie and Kate are finally back in the kitchen. I still wasn’t feeling in the mood up until a couple of nights ago, when I spent a few hours cleaning out the cabinets and the refrigerator.
Good morning! Since I shared your favorite recipes from 2014 a few days ago, I thought I’d share a few of my favorites, too.
