Chicken Garlic Ranch Tortilla Pizza

Summer is here {thank goodness} and life has been busier than ever! The kids are spending time at camp during the day, and when they come home, they’re exhausted after hours of running, swimming and playing in the fresh air. However, even though that’s the case, they expend what little energy they have left, riding their bikes and and chatting with their friends in the neighborhood at the end of the day. We’ve been spending much of our time outside {Read More}

Wisconsin Cheese Curds

Today is such an exciting day! It’s Monday? Nope, that’s not what I was thinking. Are you kidding me? Today is June 1 and the beginning of June Dairy Month here in Wisconsin. Although I’m not a big fan of the cold, long winters we have around here, I wouldn’t trade the food for anything. Dairy is a staple around these parts and I’m not sure what I would do without my milk and cheese. For our family of four, {Read More}

Classic Bruschetta

Every summer I look forward to planting my little herb garden outside on the deck. Basil is one of my favorite herbs and I love using it in my summer recipes, like these Lemon & Basil Grilled Pork Chops. Today, I’m sharing the recipe for my favorite Classic Bruschetta. I make this year-round, but in the summer when I have fresh tomatoes and basil right outside my patio door, I take full advantage of it. Impromptu parties and dinners happen {Read More}

Cheesy Artichoke Dip

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Crystal Farms Cheese. All opinions are 100% mine. I’m still a bit disappointed about the Packers’ loss against the Seahawks, but life goes on, and of course, I’m going to be watching the Super Bowl game. . .for the commercials and the snacks. 🙂 Who’s going to pass up an opportunity to get some friends together and put out a spread of appetizers and finger food? Ummm. Not me. One of my {Read More}

Oven-Baked S’mores

Last weekend we packed the family into the car and headed “up north” to our lake cabin. It’s seasonal, which means we “winterize” it around October – turn the water off, shut off the heat and remove all liquids that could freeze. And we close it up. So sad. We check on it once or twice during the winter and spend the rest of the time watching the calendar, anxiously awaiting the first signs of spring. Come spring, we start opening it {Read More}

Skinny Mozzarella Sticks

I love appetizers. I’ll order an appetizer when we go out to eat long before I’ll order dessert at the end of the meal. You, too? The Green Bay Packers just had another big win yesterday and my husband just informed me that we’re having a party this next weekend for the game. My responsibility is always the food, so of course, for a football game, finger foods and appetizers take center stage. Today, I’m sharing a recipe for Skinny {Read More}

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Oat Bites

TGIF!! What a busy week it’s been! The shorter days have set in, and when I come home from work in the evening, it’s already dark. I walk in the door, put on my T-shirt and yoga pants and start getting dinner ready for the family. Is it just me or does a person’s body react differently to cold weather? During the summer I seem to have so much more energy. These days I’ve been struggling just to get out {Read More}
