This is a really fun holiday cooking project to make with the kiddies. There is no actually cooking involved and kids get to put their hands in sticky, goopy popcorn and make a big mess. What could be better than that? These popcorn balls were perfect to make because they... Continue reading

It’s October, which marks the end of my CSA deliveries. I must admit, I’m sort of happy about that. Mainly because I simply cannot handle anymore squash. I am squashed-out. We were given the full gamut of squash varietals this season. Everything from the classic butternut, spaghetti and acorn squash... Continue reading

This week my husband and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. In past years we would go out for an elaborate dinner some place downtown and stay out late drinking wine and eating things like oysters or foie gras. We would buy each other thoughtful gifts and anniversary cards. I... Continue reading

I attended my first MN Food Bloggers event last night. I was even brave enough to enter the "bar bake-off". It was a lovely evening getting to meet some fellow food bloggers. The food was fantastic and the sangria was unforgettable! Below is my recipe for the bars that I... Continue reading

I learned how to make this dish from my mother- in- law. In Serbian it's called branija. I thought the word meant stew or casserole. But I recently learned it just means beans. So this dish doesn't have a name other than beans. I"ll have to try and come up... Continue reading

Last week I was given a bountiful crop of blueberries in my CSA. In a panic about what to do with all of these blueberries - I scoured the internet and recipe books for blueberry ideas. One problem I've always had with fruit pies is that they are often too... Continue reading

So far summer has been a bit of a buzz kill around these parts. I'm still waiting for my summer to begin. Despite the brief summer-tease of 103 degrees a few weeks ago, there hasn't been much else going on around here in the way of summer. In fact, I'm... Continue reading

Sorry for my long absence from writing but I've had a busy May. Here's what I've been up to: I had two work events back to back (out of town), spent a fun-filled few days with my foodie pal Daniela in Chicago where we ate at two amazing restaurants: Girl... Continue reading

I think mothers are amazing. My friends and relatives, who are mothers, are amazing. My mother is amazing. In fact, I never knew how amazing I could be until I became a mother. If you have a mother or know a mother, you should tell her on Mother’s Day that... Continue reading

I had this brilliant idea of hosting a Princess tea party for my friends and their little princesses but unfortunately the royal wedding is on a Friday so that's messing things up. We're going to have our own little party anyway and I made these scones this morning and have... Continue reading

Does everybody love beans? Or is it just me? Because I'm sort of obsessed with them. I love them in a cassoulet, baked with ham, in a hot soup, in a cold salad - you name it, if its got beans, I love it! Plus, I can't lie - I... Continue reading

Sometimes pretty frosting and decorations can be misleading. Hmmmm I'm not sure what to say about my Mom's cake. I do think it looked nice and it gave me few other ideas while I was making it but the actual cake part - I didn't love. I used the red... Continue reading

Today we are celebrating my Mom's 72nd birthday. I thought instead of buying a cake this year - I'd try out my new handy dandy cake decorating tools and make her a cake instead. I still need to work on steadying my hand while decorating but this was my first... Continue reading

I spent a lot of time reading magazines in doctor's offices the past few weeks. And I'm sort of bad about ripping out recipes when I see one that I want to try. I'm not proud of it. But at least I don't steal the whole magazine - which I... Continue reading

It has been a rough week over here. What started as the little one getting sick quickly morphed into Branko getting sick and then ultimately, I met my own demise. I won't go on and on about it but needless to say it wasn't pretty. Last night, with my temperature... Continue reading

Here is what is left of my cake. At least it made it through the weekend, Lily's 103 degree temperature and two sleepless nights. I found it reassuring to wake up in the morning after a long night, knowing it was there to greet me - like the sun. But... Continue reading

My poor baby is sick. She is a weepy, whiny and watery mess of a child right now. Yesterday we were trapped inside by her illness and the rainy weather outside so it seemed like a perfect day to make a yummy chocolate cake. No plans to go anywhere. Nothing... Continue reading

This recipe is from my good, snarky and sassy friend Jennifer. I first heard about the recipe over Bloody Mary's with Jen after our Sunday morning run. I've been itching to make them ever since. I thought they sounded so cute and fun. I changed a few things to her... Continue reading
