Cardamom Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

I have a new love and his name is cardamom. No, he is not an eccentric Italian painter (but what a cool name for an eccentric Italian painter, right?), he is a spice. And he is simply magical in this Cardamom Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal.

Kale. Caesar Salad Style.

All hail Caesar! So how many people have started a Caesar salad blog post this way? Probably far too many, but that sure didn’t stop me. But seriously, I’m in love with this Kale Caesar salad right now. Why? Because it’s so easy to make and just tastes so darn good. It’s perfect for lunches or even makes a complete dinner when you add some grilled chicken or shrimp. But, why did I wait so long to post it?

Perfect Mom? Don’t Worry, I’m Not Either!

Guess what, I am not a perfect mom. Nope, never have been, never will be. And here’s the irony in that – I remember countless prayers during my struggle with infertility that included this, “I promise I will be an awesome mom, totally amazingly awesome.” I guess I felt that if I promised to be awesome, it might convince the Powers That Be, to say, “oh, ok, that’s all you needed to say Sara.” So here I am, almost 4 years later, blessed with an awesome little lady, and totally not living up to my promises to be “totally amazingly awesome.”

Blueberry Crumble Bars Recipe

Can it be? Is summer really almost over? Perhaps a Blueberry Crumble Bar could save my end-of-summer-sadness!

If you’re like me, this happens every single year. I get to the end of August and think “what the heck? How can it almost be September?” Well, of course time inevitably keeps propelling us forward, but for some reason, my mind just doesn’t accept that sometimes. I mean, I swear it was just a few weeks ago when I finally felt safe stuffing my long, dark heavy winter coat in the closet. I literally stuffed it in there too – jammed it in – as I had no interest in even seeing a glimpse of it for the next several months.

Roasted Cauliflower with Chipotle Cream

Cauliflower is having a moment right now.

Some may argue it’s moment is over, but not me. Never one to shy away from a culinary or food trend, I wanted to give the roasted cauliflower “steak” a try. Well, so here’s the thing about me, I am NOT patient. Not one little bit. So all of that fuss of carefully and perfectly slicing that cauliflower and then to have millions (exaggeration) of pieces of cauliflower fall off – well, it just frustrated the crust out of me!
