Pumpkin Bread Pudding

It finally feels like fall in Atlanta! I think the Southerns get robbed of fall, well maybe not robbed- but fall in the south happens in December, when it should be winter. So the folks of the south are sipping pumpkin spice lattes in December, when the midwesterners are sipping peppermint lattes! Now, I am […]

Fall Chicken + Acorn Squash

So here in Atlanta, it feels like fall at 8 am and then again at 8 pm- in between, it feels like summer. I love this weather come the winter, but in the fall, I do miss Milwaukee- the leaves would change colors, sweaters and scarfs would be a must to walk to class, and […]

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burger

Cake in a Bowl!

  Birthday Card- My sisters birthday was last Friday. I had my blog post all played out in my head… it was going to be stellar, the best one yet. And then… her birthday went by, I hadn’t prepared my dish- and I felt unorganized. So yesterday, I set extra time out in my […]
