Get your tortilla chips AND your veggies this Cinco de Mayo! #EverydayFiesta
I've got no time for chit-chat today {unless you're gonna tell me you just made me a fresh margarita, then we can talk}, but I wanted to make sure to squeeze in some festive "Cinco" action for you. So let's get right to it: On days like today your mind might say,"Vegetables.

Getting super excited about Food Wine Conference... and this Blueberry & Brie Salad with PUFF PASTRY CROUTONS -- my entry for the +Wish Farms  #BlueberryToss  contest! 
If you've seen the last few posts I've published, you might be wondering why the heck I'm so excited about attending the Food Wine Conference next month in Orlando. {You might also be wondering if I ever eat anything other than cheese, bacon and dessert. I do, I promise.} ...

Banana Split Brownies! #mixupamoment   #ad  
When signs of spring begin cropping up outside, so do the outdoor activities. Cookouts, picnics and potlucks start filling up the weekends, and with them come the need for go-to recipes to share with family and friends. There are times, though, that the week gets busy... or that I'm exhausted ...

It's pretty obvious that I LOVE from-scratch baking, and that I'm not afraid of a challenge when it comes to cakes, cookies, brownies and most other sweet treats. BUT. I have a little secret... Gluten free baking can be a little intimidating for me. Though I've dabbled a bit from time to time, ...

My husband and I will be celebrating our 8 year wedding anniversary in June, and while I'm happy to say that we're still going strong, the appliances that we acquired upon the start of our married life together are not. About a year ago, everything we received from our registry started going ...

I'm just gonna make this real simple: Would you rather have your house smell like cabbage... or like coffee and whiskey-infused chocolate cake? {I'll go out on a limb and say that there's probably no cabbage-scented candle in the works, and it's easy to understand why!} ...

I am constantly juggling the daily tasks of growing a business and staying home with my growing boy. I love both, but it takes a lot of time, energy and patience to dedicate time to each every single day. I spend Cole's nap times working and his awake times playing, and I'm always looking for ...

Pimento Cheese Stuffed Cornbread! #MakeItWithMilk  
That whole "twist on a Southern classic" thing I mentioned last week got my wheels turning, and all I've been able to think about are amped up Southern recipes. Plus, my husband and I are planning an anniversary trip to Charleston in June and I've been falling asleep with visions of shrimp ...

#BreakTheRouxles  with this Bacon Lattice-Top Peach Pie! 
There is something about the honest to goodness, no apologies, "y'all come back now", rib-sticking recipes of the South that speak to me. I've mentioned my infatuation with Southern culture before, so it's no surprise that the food is no exception. So around this time of year when everyone is ...

I think my kid broke me. Or, at the very least, my ability to sleep peacefully for extended periods of time. Though he's been "sleeping like a baby" through the night for quite some time, I find myself having the same "red light, green light" sleep cycles that began when he was just a tiny thing ...

Here's a sad little truth: Bloggers do not get Spring Break. Had someone told me this back when I was wielding a red pen as I graded neverending stacks of papers and biting my nails down to the quick during standardized test season thinking, "Whyyyyyyyyyy?", I may have stuck with that whole ...

Historically, "Pi Day" has gone something like this for me {in the last few years when it's even been a "thing", anyway}: March 13: "Oh, tomorrow is Pi Day. I'm not really that into pie. I think I'll skip it." Morning of March 14: ::: browsing social media ::: "Ooooh, that's a pretty pie.

    Over at The Kitchen Prep, I write about my passion for the kitchen and South Florida living. My recipes range from delightfully healthy to downright decadent, never skimping on fun or flavor. In a perfect world, I'd always be clothed in Lilly & covered in flour. The rest is really just details. ;)
