Simple Green Beans

I’m welcoming November and all of its greatness with a ton of warm and comforting recipes to share with you. Mark and I are hosting Thanksgiving this year with family coming in from out of town, and I am trying out new recipes to add to our menu. To balance out calorie-laden, decadent dishes, I [...]

Salsa Fresca

salsa de papa

This salsa tastes fresh, hence the name, Salsa Fresca. We also lovingly call it “Salsa de Papa” since it’s something Mark makes on the regular here in our house, using the recipe he acquired from his dad. It’s obviously great with chips, but we also love it on scrambled eggs, in sandwiches, added to rice and [...]

Once I thumbed over to the page where it read, Fromage Frais (Fresh cheese in French) I knew it was something I had to make – [...]

Cucumber Pickles & Pickled Vegetables

I’m knee deep making everything I can get my hands on from scratch. I am constantly amazed at how easy things are made when you actually look into how they are made. Right now I have two huge jars full of whole pickled cucumbers, cucumber spears and a variety of vegetables. And there’s exactly one [...]
