Watermelon and Microgreens Salad

Strawberry Milkshake Cake

    Chet and I went for our annual strawberry pick at Porter’s Patch this past weekend. I think the late spring yielded a smaller berry than in past years, but their flavor was still delicious! Normally we turn our picked strawberries into jam, but we have so much left

Fall in Wisconsin

Homemade Butternut Squash Ravioli w/ Brown Butter Sage Sauce

Homemade Pretzels & Garlic Cheese Sauce

Two posts in one day! Told you I’ve been being productive. I was stumbling the internet late one night (with a nice stiff cocktail) and I probably should have just went to bed…but really, who wants to go to bed and miss out on finding jems like this online?? My

Smoked Salmon Bagels w/cream cheese

Hi all! It has been a bit since I’ve posted anything and I do apologize. I’m making up for my shoddy attendance by giving you not one, but TWO blog postings this weekend. Things have been very busy for me as of late. I’ve been working hard which usually leaves
