Otherwise known as, portion control for the uncontrollable. I always cut myself a big, pillowy slice of angel food cake, smother it with cream and berries, go to town… do you? The cake is just so light and fluffy that you feel like the...

When we have guests over for an extended stay, I take the opportunity to try all sorts of treats on them! And fatten them up. Because I have way too many skinny people in my life, and they need to be fed. My favorite...

I’ve always thought, if there’s one comfort food that shouldn’t be messed with, it’s the chocolate chip cookie. Sure, stuff it with caramel and sprinkle it with sea salt. Mix in peanut butter, pretzels, M&Ms and sandwich a scoop of vanilla ice cream between...

Predictable food at parties isn’t always a bad thing. You need a good sandwich or fried finger food to round out the other stuff that not everyone’s going to like! It’s all about a little variety. That’s why I love to put crowd-pleasing spins...

I’m pretty easygoing overall, but I tend to make a lot of fuss about some things. Breakfast at my table? A feast of eggs, toast, bacon, fresh fruit and hot coffee. Decorating for the holidays? The house has to be dripping with Christmas cheer,...

WholeWheatPeanutButterBananaPancakes-2.jpg

Bright and early tomorrow morning, we’re headed to a five-hour intensive course on all things baby. Which is good, because neither of us know anything. Like, seriously, we’d struggle at this if our daughter was born tomorrow. We NEED this. So, I’m excited to...

We were married less than 24 hours when we hopped off a plane in London. Our plans were laid, our bellies were ready, and our maps led the way. The mission? Finding the city’s best fish and chips. We ate our way through the...
