Beer Cheese Bacon Dip


Confession time: Since I went out for sushi with Brittney and Laurie last week for book club, I've been craving sushi like mad. We went to Thai-namite in downtown Milwaukee and I got shrimp tempura and sweet potato rolls. It got me thinking how terrible grocery store sushi is. I've had good luck at Trader ...

Salad Recipe Roundup

Hello, friends! I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely weather we've been having. Oliver and I have been walking and running up a storm. Yesterday he looked as happy as a clam. When a woman walking past us said "hello" to me and "hi, sweetie" to Oliver, he didn't even bark at her. For most ...

Here are some of my favorite pictures from our trip: Our view from the condo we rented. We watched the sunset almost every night...with a drink in hand of course. Brenton's dad completely photo bombed ...

Vegan, Dairy-Free Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Flax Muffins

For some reason, cooking without any animal products has a stigma of being hard-as-a-rock, tasteless and sub-par to the real thing. Well, ...
