Summer Pasta Salad

It’s summmmmerrrr….and its HOOOOTTT!!! 🔥🔥🔥 Hot would literally be an understatement right now. If you’ve never been to Florida before, I’m not quite sure how to even explain our hot summers with the crazy humidity.

As I write this post, Memorial Day weekend is in full swing! I’m spending a much anticipated long weekend at my mother and father in laws house- they have a great place in a somewhat country area outside of Orlando (believe it or not, it’s not all Mickey Mouse and theme parks here!). I’ve spent

Oh hey, wow…Thanksgiving is this week, yikes! If you are like me at all, then you may have procrastinated thinking about what you are bringing to the fam’s house this year until, oooh you know, this week. Wait, did I say that out loud? Ok, I admit it, with some things…maybe more than some, I’m

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes bowl

My husband loves french fries (and all things potato). Really, who doesn’t? They’re the perfect compliment to almost all grilled items, including hamburgers, grilled chicken, BBQ, etc. I created this oven roasted red potatoes recipe in an effort to provide something as satisfying as a fry without all the unhealthy fat. We grill out at
