Do you ever just stare into the fridge, waiting for dinner inspiration to magically hit? I like a good meal plan, but the reality is I often fall short of implementing one to its fullest potential. Sometimes the day has a shift in plans, or I forget to take my meat from the freezer. …… Continue reading creamy mushroom and spinach pasta
Fall means pumpkin everything. Amiright? I do believe I like fall for pumpkin-time as much as breaking-out-the-cardigans-time. And that’s saying something, because I do love me my cardigans and boots (I refuse to reveal the number of cardigans and boots I may own).

My dairy-free girl’s diet is, well, dairy free. She has a very sensitive tummy and we have tried to determine the underlying issues with the…… Continue reading no bake chocolate cookies

That’s the only way we have leftovers for rolls or sandwiches, and chowder. I believe I may need to try one of those delicious pasta recipes, as well. On the menu…… Continue reading lobster leftovers…no really
