I need to thank you all for the outpouring of love I have received since I lost my mom. The messages, emails, and comments from both friends and strangers has blown me away. I am truly touched.

I’m still having a hard time, understandably, but life moves on. My husband and boys sustain me, and creating recipes for all of you keeps me moving forward. Taking long walks in the warm sunshine and eating ice cream straight from the carton help too. >> More

Milkshakes with booze: if you haven’t given them a try yet you are missing out. You’ve gotta have one, like, immediately. I don’t care if it’s 9 am. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?

This spiked chocolate mint milkshake is the fulfillment of a childhood dream you didn’t even know you had. It’s a classic milkshake, with a little something extra. >> More

In early March, when asparagus starts showing up at the grocery store for just a few bucks a bunch, that’s when I know. Spring produce, and then summer produce, is on its way.

And then I do a little happy dance right there in the produce aisle. Hooray! >> More


The buttery crust and tart filling of traditional lemon bars, with a coconut twist!

This recipe was developed in partnership with the American Butter Institute.

Here in Moab we have been enjoying the most dreamy pre-spring weather. It’s been sunny, warm, and today I even got to break out my flip flops. Hooray! We’re still in our first year here so I’m not really sure if this is normal or not, but I sure hope this isn’t just a big tease.

Even though lemon is a winter fruit, March is always when I start craving it nonstop. I think it’s because lemon reminds me of sunshine and right about now is when I want nothing but sunshine.

Winter be gone!

My mother passed away a few weeks ago. She had been seriously ill since the new year, but her death was still sudden and expected, not to mention completely devastating.

I took a few weeks off to spend time with my family, say goodbye to mom, and try to process everything. It’s been hard, as I’m sure you can imagine. But I’m finally ready to get back in the kitchen and try to move on as best as I can. >> More
