Scallion Flatbreads

It’s high time I put some focus back onto this blog. This craziness of the last few months forced me to push it to the back burner. Until I was removed from it, I didn’t realize just what a source of joy and creative outlet this blog has been. While I may not be the…

Cranberry Brown Sugar Tart

The holidays are a crazy time of year anybody but in my family, it can be even more complicated since we all live so far apart. Plane tickets and timing phone calls so no one accidentally calls Grammy at 2:00 am. Friends, family, and pretty much anyone we find are brought into the fold. Sometimes…

Pretty Pink Pasta
