Brown butter, Sage, and Mushroom Pasta!!!
It's Friday. It's almost the weekend and for me, that means two parents to one baby, a ratio that is much more favorable than 1:1. I spend most of the week trying to get my shit together in a sleep-deprived daze (when is he e...

New post - Nanaimo bars. 
Nanaimo bars are these creamy, delicious, chocolatey squares. They originated in Nanaimo Canada - a small city located just north of Victoria on Vancouver Island (otherwise known for its amazing pirate poutine). Unfortunately...

Are you looking for some vegetables to grow this fall, but don't know where to start? Are you new to gardening or are you an experienced gardener? Either way, today on the blog I am sharing tips on how to grow a small container lettuce garden on your patio. It is so easy, and within weeks you will have crisp lettuce leaves right out your back door. http://www.flourishingfoodie.com/2015/08/how-to-plant-small-space-lettuce-garden.html
Most of the vegetables that I planted at the beginning of summer have either finished growing for the season or are close to it. I am just waiting for the larger tomatoes to turn red, and then I will harvest the last of my ba...

I've got a new recipe up on the blog for the easiest pound cake. Top it with some sweet ripe summer fruit and a dollop of whipped cream!
I know that lately it may seem like there's been a lot of baby talk around these parts, and I swore that I wouldn't be that person, but guys, it is consuming me right now. Sometimes a girl just needs to talk about it. I think...

If you're feeling the same way I am - not wanting to turn on the stove for the rest of the summer, but debating whether or not you can really live off of ice cream? Try making these mini cast iron skillet Triple Berry Crumble, right on the grill! So easy, and you don't have to heat your house in the process. Unless your grill is in the kitchen, and then I can't help you.http://www.flourishingfoodie.com/2015/06/triple-berry-crumble-on-grill.html
I've declared my house an 'oven free zone' for the rest of the summer. Slightly dramatic, I know. Maybe I'll allow some light simmering on the stovetop at night, but NO ONE will dare turn on the stove until this baby makes hi...

Grilled cheese with aged cheddar, balsamic glazed onions and mushrooms, and fresh spinach, smushed between the finest loaf of crusty bread. The Mightiest of all grilled cheeses. Recipe on the blog. 
Grilled cheese sandwiches are one of my absolute favorite comfort foods in the winter months. When I was a child, my mother would make us grilled cheese sandwiches using a big old grilled cheese press with a metal handle, spr...

Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake with Salted Caramel and Candied Pecans!
It's been far too long since I've given you guys a proper update on things around here. Let me tell you, it has been crazy. For the past three weeks, we've had a whole string of houseguests trying to get in as much snuggle ti...

I just posted a recipe for my favorite summer salad - seared halloumi, caramelized peaches and cherries, served on a bed of arugula. Seriously, can we all just bask in the sun and eat deliciously ripe fruit all year round.  http://www.flourishingfoodie.com/2015/07/seared-halloumi-caramelized-peach-and.html
Did you guys watch the Bachelorette finale Mon night? Don't worry, I haven't seen it yet. I usually watch it on Tues, so I can stream from Amazon, but last night I had the last of my hideous birthing classes, where they tell ...

Savory Cheesy Potato, Corn, and Zucchini Galette. A new post on the blog today. http://www.flourishingfoodie.com/2015/07/cheesy-potato-corn-and-zucchini-galette.html
This weekend was hot. I mean really really hot. Cold showers and ice water were not cutting it, so, as a last resort, I drove to Target to buy a kiddie pool, but they were all sold out. I tried to buy an AC, but they were all...

For the past few months, I have been slowly making my way through the Sprouted Kitchen's new book - Bowl and Spoon. I've got to say that this book is top notch. Today on the blog I am sharing my favorite recipe from the book - the Popeye Protein Bowl. Intense flavors, fresh ingredients, light yet substantial. All around, good eats.http://www.flourishingfoodie.com/2015/06/the-sprouted-kitchens-popeye-protein.html
If I had the option, I'd almost always choose to eat my meals out of a bowl. Unless we're taking about pizza, and then I'd choose to eat it off the wooden paddle straight from the oven, with a slightly charred bubbly crust, m...

We ordered online, went to pick it up, and they were closed even though their hours posted online states they were supposed to be open. Also, phone number doesn't work. So pissed. Glad I didn't enter my visa online.
