Did you know that February is National Pancake month? I feel like every other day is National Something Month but I love pancakes so I am more than happy to celebrate! After a glorious week of spring-like temperatures Omaha has been plunged back into winter with snow and cold weather. When it’s cold and dreary out, I crave comfort carbs like no other. So when I got home from work I announced to Josh

It’s almost Super Bowl time! I’m the first to admit, I watch it for the half time performance and the commercials. This year I guess I have a little bit of a stake since the Broncos are yelling, “Omaha!” every game. But really, give me some good food and a drink and I’ll be happy for whoever wins.
Speaking of good food I have an awesome Superbowl recipe to share with you guys today.

I LOVE brussels sprouts. They are without a doubt my favorite food. This is so funny to me because I used to think they were disgusting. I never tasted them, but I had in my head I would hate them. Then I actually tasted them and realized they’re delicious. While steamed or boiled is fine, they’re best when they’re roasted. Whenever I see them in restaurants I always order them. Recently we’ve been making big

My first married Christmas was absolutely amazing. The whole day I couldn’t stop thinking about how lucky I am and how I already have everything I could ever want. (I was still really looking forward to opening the presents though! :p)
Christmas Eve we went over to Molly’s aunts and uncles house for dinner. Their whole family is so nice and so fun. They are also amazing cooks. They made eggplant parm for

And soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Molly and Brian.
We hung out and drank some wine and started the meal off

This is a

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is over! The holidays sure do fly. I hope your Thanksgiving was a special one.
I celebrated mine with my favorite guy and our friends Molly, Brian, and their family. Molly was so kind to invite us over to her parents house for Thanksgiving. We aren’t traveling home for the holidays this year and weren’t sure what we were going to do. Her family was so warm and welcoming. They

Growing up, my family would always get together for the holidays and celebrate with big meals. I’d drink apple cider and try and steal some pumpkin pie while getting shooed from the kitchen and told to go help set the table. I look back on all those memories fondly, even the year my dad tried to cook the turkey, but forgot to defrost it so we ended up ordering Chinese for Thanksgiving dinner. Now that

This past weekend Joanna and Jeff invited Josh and me to our first Friendsgiving! Being new to town, it means so much to have friends that include us in their holiday traditions. I’ve always wanted to go to a Friendsgiving, so I was really looking forward to this. It was a potluck so Josh and I brought squash casserole, creme brulee potatoes, and pumpkin chocolate chip mookies.
My pictures are random and sporadic throughout

Joanna and her husband invited us to celebrate the season with friends, and Josh and I knew we wanted to bring a special dish to mark the special occasion. We wanted it to be healthy, tasty, relatively simple to make, and not make too much of a mess. Josh and I
