Halloween Ghost Cake Pop

Boo! This is Adalyn's first real Halloween because she was too young last year to understand. She seems excited over all the fun decorations, costumes and most of all CANDY! I have some inner Martha Stewart buried deep within - okay I'll admit I am probably less gifted than her very talented pinky nail. So I had to dig really deep...

For Love & Lemons and Chloe Drew

One of my easy go-to recipes is fluffy and buttery pancakes with a side of crispy bacon and Caffe Vita coffee (their Queen City blend is so yummy and my favorite ...


Recipe: Chili & Cornbread

March 2, 2015

Mmm, chili and cornbread on a rainy winter day. The perfect marriage of savory and sweet. It makes a regular appearance in my house especially during the colder months. So easy to make and you'll have leftovers that taste better each day. I prefer my chili with beef, pork and lamb (looove lamb) and a spicy kick. But it's more comm...


Recipe: Shoyu Chicken in 20 minutes

February 9, 2015

Here's a quick and easy dinner in 20 minutes. Shoyu Chicken is a popular dish in Hawaii, and is also known as Teriyaki Chicken. I didn't have time to plan dinner on Sunday night, so I skipped the usual 1 hour marinade, and it still came out tender and ono-licious (ono means "delicious" in Hawaiian). Serve with a side of hot rice a...
