I've fallen in love with tarts! They are much easier to make than homemade pies but just as impressive. This version is Alpine Strawberry Mascarpone and it is awesome!! There are no other words. Just awesome 😁 Alpine Strawberry Mascarpone Tart-

This takes me back to childhood in a glorious way! Untraditional Green Bean Casserole-> a version of a classic recipe my mom used to make. A savory ground beef and green bean base, topped with the creamiest mashed potatoes, and of course, melty cheese. This was my FAVORITE thing my mom used to make when I was a kid ❤️

South Shore, KY
An Oregon Girl Taking a Bite Out of Kentucky
I'm a 30-something food-lover, devoted to my family and fur babies. I love to be in the kitchen, I love everything about trying new flavors and foods. I graduated from college in 2005, and went straight to work for a large corporation. After 6 years of climbing the ladder, I realized that wasn't what I wanted my life to be. So here I am! In Kentucky, in the kitchen, and loving life.
