{Recipe} Garden Spaghetti Sauce

by katherine on September 14, 2011

I posted this photo a few days ago and I received a few requests to share the recipe. I found the original recipe online 3 or 4 years ago…the summer of my very first garden harvest. You see, Andy’s best friend (who loves tomatoes) simply didn’t think the 3 tomato plants I planted would be […]


{Recipe} Tandoori Chicken with Mango Salsa

by katherine on September 9, 2011

Friends, yesterday left me defeated. Mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted. I had this whole big woe-is-me post written in my head, then realized… nobody probably gives a crap. So, instead, I decided…hell yea! It’s Friday. And pay day. And I have a pedicure with a girlfriend calling my name at 5:30 tonight, followed by a […]


Since nearly every night directly after dinner for the last month or soAndy has been heading down to the rental for the renovations, dinners have had to be quick and easy. I feel like we’ve slumped into an all too easy food rut lately.  So, this weekend while planning this week’s dinners and making my grocery […]

My mother in law is pretty much famous for this Mexican Dip and is pretty much shunned if she doesn’t bring two pans of it to the annual 4th of July Bash we attend every […]


I don’t claim to be the master of anything. I’m ok at crafting and scrapbooking. Gardening? Ehh…questionable. I handle my own in the kitchen. But there’s one thing that I like to think I do pretty well. Ummm…most of the time anyway. As a working mama/ double career family, I think we’ve got our routine […]

Have you guys noticed that all of my recipes so far have been Mexican food? We kind of eat that a lot. I was watching America’s test kitchen one Sunday morning and they were making shredded beef enchiladas. I thought it looked really good so I figured I try them out. I couldn’t find the […]
