Flourless Chocolate Pear Hazelnut Cake with Bahlsen Waffeletten

Flourless Chocolate Pear Hazelnut Cake with Bahlsen Waffeletten

Did you know that September is the biggest birthday month of year?

I had no idea until just recently, but with my birthday on September 30, I thought this was pretty interesting. (Yes, I probably need to get out more, lol.)

Egg Salad with Bacon and Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing

Egg Salad with Bacon and Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing

Growing up, the only thing worse than finding tunafish in my lunchbox was finding egg salad there. And the real problem was that I (and everyone else) knew it was there even before I opened my lunch. (Such is the problem of potent-smelling sandwiches when you’re a kid!)

So believe me when I tell you that egg salad is a newly acquired taste for me.

Skinny Raspberry-Chocolate Cheesecake Milkshakes

Skinny Raspberry-Chocolate Cheesecake Milkshakes

How about a berry cheesecake milkshake for breakfast?, I enticed Mike one Saturday morning.

Cheesecake-flavored anything is his favorite; combine it with berries and he’s in heaven. Needless to say, he was pretty excited about breakfast that day.

That is, until he saw me add cottage cheese to the blender in a moment of inspiration.

“His” and “Hers” Fresh Corn Quesadillas with Roasted Garlic and Chive Crema

“His” and “Hers” Fresh Corn Quesadillas with Roasted Garlic and Chive Crema

When Mike and I can’t agree on dinner, I like to cook “his” and “hers” style.

Sometimes it’s completely different meals, like spaghetti with homemade beef ragu for him and fish or chicken with a side of veggies (preferably roasted) for me. But if I’m lucky, it’s a similar meal that’s easily customizable for both of our tastes, like salad with different toppings or sandwiches with different fillings…or quesadillas!

Sparkling Citrus Pineapple Ginger “Sangria” Mocktail

Sparkling Citrus Pineapple Ginger “Sangria” Mocktail

The only kind of juice Mike likes is carrot.

I don’t like to make it for him every day (a friend of a friend’s cousin’s mom swears that her baby turned orangish from feeding her carrots every day!), but I make him a fresh glass of it a couple times a week in the morning when I make my own juice blend.

Healthy Roasted Garlic and Chive Cottage Cheese Crema

Healthy Roasted Garlic and Chive Cottage Cheese Crema

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been one to shy away from bold-flavored foods…

Extra, extra onion on every sandwich. (I wish I were kidding. If you’re ever at a sandwich shop and you hear someone order their sandwich with double extra onion, walk up and say hi because it’s probably me.)

At least one more clove of garlic than every recipe calls for.

Tunafish for breakfast…why not?!

Strawberry-Filled Vanilla Layer Cake with {Stabilized} Whipped Cream Frosting

Strawberry-Filled Vanilla Cake with {Stabilized} Whipped Cream Frosting

In my home, desserts are just as seasonal as any other food.

It would be strange to have a hearty beef stew for dinner in the middle of summer, and it would be all but unheard of (except for a birthday celebration) to have a rich, heavy chocolate cheesecake for dessert. Summer calls for fresher, lighter fare all around…dessert included.
