Gorgonzola Macaroni and Cheese Bacon Cups

These Gorgonzola Macaroni and Cheese Bacon Cups could also be known as “why I can’t lose weight even though I work out 4 times a week” cups. Ooops.

Pesto is a food of love or hate in our house. My kids and I are big fans but Joel makes gagging sounds just at the mention of it. Dramatic, I know. He was in Boston a couple weeks ago for a work conference and although I hate when he is out of town (especially for

Sugo Sauce

Joel and I went out on a date last month and we ate at one of our favorite Italian restaurants in town. When we go there, I always get the same thing. It’s just so good I can never bring myself to order anything else. But this time I was determined to go out of my

Homemade Ricotta Ravioli

Last week I registered Noah for Kindergarten. Yesterday, he had his pre-Kindergarten check up. Is this real life? I know us moms say this constantly, but where has the time gone? It’s seriously hard for me to comprehend that he will be in elementary school in a few short months. He will be away from
