Foodie Friday: MEYERS’ MEXICAN CORN

Last month, Dave and I enjoyed our go-to meal for about the 100th time… an at-home Mexican Fiesta. I’d say we make some version of taco night at least once a week and it’s always served family style because we make our own plates completely different. His version includes…

MOTHER’S DAY CROSTINI

When I was thinking about recipe ideas for Mother’s Day I knew I wanted something traditional, but with a twist. So many little ones are super picky eaters so I wanted it to be kid-friendly, healthy, and colorful to appeal to palates of all ages. The theme of my recent shoot was…

HAPPY DERBY DAY!

Happy Derby Day! What do you have planned for today? In case you’re opting for something really simple this year, try pouring yourself a mint julep, or (for my fellow ice cream lovers) I’m thinking this mint julep ice-cream would be the perfect nod to “the best two minutes in sports!” Now it’s off to the races…   *Image via Julia Lake in collaboration with Brita Olsen Creative, photo by Tory Williams Photography
