Meatball Subs with Goat Cheese and Mushrooms

For several weeks during my maternity leave, my go to meal was meatball subs. We’d buy a few baguettes from the bakery in our neighborhood and top them with IKEA meatballs and tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella from Trader Joe’s. Oh, and a little fresh basil from our plant too. Getting to the bread store… Continue Reading

Summer Chicken Quesadillas

Well hello, long time, no post! Things have been a bit hectic, so I took a much needed break from cooking. We had a few too many nights of frozen ravioli and breakfast for dinner, but I finally got back into the kitchen again this weekend– I missed it! The first recipe I created is… Continue Reading

She enjoyed sweet potatoes first! February was also a busy month.… Continue Reading

Anyway, this gouda is their spotlight cheese for March, so hurry and get it while you can! Green cheese… Continue Reading

Soba Noodles and Meatballs

I always look forward to grabbing lattes with my mom and wandering around the mall when we see each other. Miss Greta and I are already continuing this mother/daughter shopping tradition. We haven’t been to a mall yet, but we did go to Nordstrom Rack the other weekend and explored all the aisles of shoes.… Continue Reading
