Layered Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad with Herbed Sour Cream 1

At the beginning of summer, one of Mike’s favorite coworkers moved to Hawaii.

(It was a sad day when we said goodbye to her, not only because she was funny and sweet and smart, but also because she makes the best brownies I’ve ever put into my mouth. She’s like some kind of evil brownie magician because I swear her recipe is irreplicable despite my 25 pathetic attempts.)

Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese

Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese 1

Bright Mediterranean flavors make this Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese a perfect summer side dish. Mike and I decided years ago that we just aren’t campers. Actually, it was after our first camping trip that we sort-of had an inkling that it just wasn’t our cup of tea, but after our second trip we outright swore off camping altogether. (It’s not the bugs, or the snakes, or even the uncomfortable bedding that gets me. What kills it for me is the fact that I can never just get clean, lol. Dirty feet and sticky fingers are the stuff my nightmares are […]...

Watermelon Salad with Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette

Watermelon Salad with Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette 1

Sweet and salty pair perfectly in this refreshing Watermelon Salad with Sweet and Spicy Vinaigrette! Growing up, our summertime meals consisted mostly of fresh veggies.

It was bliss, all of it, and it’s no wonder that to this day my sister and I both prefer veggies over meat or junk food. (Thank you, Mom!)...

Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence 1

If you’re looking for a new twist on a classic favorite side dish, Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence is the answer! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that when Mike and I were in Paris there was no holds barred on things like bread and cheese (come on, it’s Paris). We tried to make up for it by walking seven to ten miles a day (and that wasn’t even our sole means of transportation; we typically took the Metro three or four times a day too! What can I say? Paris is big and there’s a lot to do). And […]...

Crunchy Broccoli Salad with Creamy Dressing

Crunchy Broccoli Salad with Creamy Dressing

The first time I ever dyed my hair was freshman year in college. I’m naturally a dirty blonde (which I have always thought was quite an unfortunate term for hair color), and decided to go a little lighter. It was so ridiculously similar to my natural color, it wasn’t even worth the effort....
