Is it just me, or did Trader Joe's recently become trendy? I remember when I was a kid, my mom and I would take the occasional trek out to the one Trader Joe's a half hour away. It seems like they're everywhere now - and I feel comfortable speaking for all of us when I say, thank goodness. I love finding new products at Trader Joe's. I've made . . .
Where are my soup lovers?! On an average day, soup doesn't do it for me (unless it's this Tuscan White Bean Soup I shared a few weeks back!). I much prefer to chew my food, if I'm being honest. I find it way more satisfying. There's something about the winter months, though, where I forget that. All I want is an oversized mug of soup, a blanket, . . .

You guys, today on the blog, I'm sharing one of my absolute favorite weeknight meals. I love this Tuscan White Bean soup because it's a one-pot recipe that I can add meat to for Mike. This means the same meal for the vegetarian and the carnivore - a total win in my book. A few hacks: Instead of chopping the veggies like below, I buy Trader . . .
You guys - today is a very special day. It's my mom's birthday! Anyone who knows my mom knows that she's pretty much the coolest human being ever. I'm serious - my friends would come over to visit HER during college breaks - they couldn't have cared less whether I was there or not! :) She's taught me so much, it's really hard for me to . . .
Okay you guys!! Here it is! While I was home last week, I made spinach pies with my aunt. Let me be clear: I endured MANY a comment about my rapidly waning fertility to get you guys this recipe, so somebody try it and tell me what you think, okay??

Happy Friday!! Mike got home last night from four days of training in Chicago, and I made one of our favorite dinners. My sister-in-law gave me this recipe almost eight years ago, and it's still one of my go-to's. My entire family has taken to making it. It's one of my favorite things to make because I can set some aside without meat for me and . . .
