Baked Zucchini Spaghetti Medallions

Special thanks to Green Giant! This post was sponsored by Green Giant as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. David versus Goliath. Jeans versus post-baby body. Netflix versus 8 hours of sleep. Some battles are epic. But there is one that has withstood the test of time, eternal turmoil to rival all wars… toddler versus vegetables. I am currently huddled in the muddy trenches of this bloody struggle. Like her mother before her, my daughter refuses to eat veggies. And if it wasn’t for my maternal force-feeding instincts, …

Rosé Cider Wars: Crispin versus Angry Orchard

Pet peeves. We all have them. Nails on a chalkboard. Hundreds of unopened emails in your inbox. Someone replying to your text by calling you instead. They’re liable to make you go insane. Mine is food-related, of course. I can’t stand it when a brand labels their food as having some novel flavor, but it actually doesn’t. For example, champagne-flavored truffles. If I can’t detect a hint of bubbly, then I will go all-out Miranda Priestly on you… CHAMPAGNE! Where’s my champagne?! You’re not going to Paris! And don’t get me started on the Sriracha-flavored potato chips without a hint …

Tai Pei Fried Rice for the Win!

This post was sponsored by Tai Pei, all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Every so often, I like to take a recipe breather and introduce you to an innovative pre-made food product instead. I do this because I am a realist. I know you’re busy. Unless you’re Ina Garten or Martha Stewart (circa 1980), it’s impossible to make every meal from scratch. Seriously, who has time for that?! Even me, a professional food writer, stylist, and recipe developer often opts for pre-made, easy meals. Between my work, my toddler, and every day life, home cooked food is …

Mincemeat Almond Pie with Bourbon Glaze

Tis the season for pie! And since I am personally obsessed with all things British, I am going to subject you to a traditional English recipe once again. But fear not, for as always I have added a unique twist to the classic recipe. Because who likes messing with a good thing? I do! With the help of MI-DEL Pie Crusts, I have created a scrumptious pie recipe to add to the holiday bake list: Mincemeat Almond Pie with Bourbon Glaze. Who wants a slice? For red-blooded Americans a pie with ‘meat’ in the title might sound a bit unappetizing. …

Giving Tuesday: Love With Food

Did you know that November 28 is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving that kicks off the charitable season? After the last few days of selfish consumerism, it’s a very refreshing thought.

For every box of goodies you purchase, Love With Food will donate a meal to a hungry child. Christmas spirit in it’s truest form for Giving Tuesday. Here’s more information about this fantastic company and a link to their shop… Love With Food  Love With Food …

Campfire Pretzel Bites with Glutino

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Glutino® and Udis®. The opinions and text are all mine. I married into a family of doctors. Of course, it is quite beneficial when I need a flu shot or have a question about a sore throat. But there are times that I find my medically-inclined in-laws quite a nuisance. For example, like the time that my husband’s aunt casually leaned over the Thanksgiving Day table and told me to put down the bread roll because I had a gluten intolerance. Hand to my heart, that was exactly how …
