Blackberry & Pear Salad {with Red Wine Poppy Seed Vinaigrette)

So we’re three weeks out from Halloween and if your blog/Facebook/Pinterest feed looks anything like mine, it’s jam-packed with pumpkin and spice and apples and baking and cakes and candy and all that. And we’ve been whole-hearted participants in that trend, so I’m not pointing fingers here. But. I’m kind of needing a detox. If, […]

Make Kate’s Stuff Your Stuff!

10.02.2014 So I have kind of a weird life. My husband works for Procter & Gamble, so we frequently get huge amounts of P&G products (usually laundry products, like Tide, Bounce, Downy, etc., but also diapers and wipes, deodorant, and CoverGirl foundation for people with a MUCH darker complexion than I have). Then we also […]

How To Make Homemade Egg Noodles

When I was 23, I got my tonsils out during the last Christmas break of my college career and it was pretty much the most miserable two weeks ever. It didn’t help things that my doctor prescribed me steroids which, I didn’t know at the time but have come to discover since, make me ravenously […]

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars

Caramel.  Apples.  Cheesecake.  Shortbread.  Streusel.  Do I really need to write anything else here?  These bars take a few bowls to make a few layers, but they’re worth the effort, I pinky-swear.  From the bottom up they start with a buttery shortbread crust, layered with creamy cheesecake, then soft-baked soft apples (like apple pie) then […]

Long-time readers know we love a good spread.  A flavorful Aioli is the perfect way to dress up things like sandwiches and sliders, burgers, crudites, grilled vegetables and more.  I love to whip up mixes like this and keep them in my fridge during the week.  We use them on everything from my lunch-time wrap […]

Tips for Spooktacular Fall Decor

I think we’ve talked about Halloween before, but I haven’t always loved it.  I’ve always, always loved Autumn time, and for years I’ve been known to start decorating with fall leaves and burning pumpkin candles when it’s still 90 degrees outside, but none of that was really Halloween-y.  I just kind of embrace the season […]

Maple Glazed Bacon

So I have been slow to jump on the whole baconbaconbacon bandwagon. I mean, I like bacon. I love bacon. But I’m not one to get bacon ice cream a maple bacon doughnut or chocolate covered bacon or get chocolate bars with bacon in it. I do, however, love maple bacon. Not in stuff–I accidentally put maple […]

Pineapple Slaw Burgers

So you guys know my picky eater? The one who literally has a list of, like, 10 foods he will willingly eat without crying? And how when we go to restaurants, he will only eat chicken in some kind of nuggeted form, pizza, or macaroni and cheese? For the record, hot dogs and quesadillas used to be […]

5 of Kate’s Favorite Apps

In case you missed it, last week, Apple announced the new iPhones this week. Now…I know a lot of people have a lot of feelings about Apple products. Even though my husband and I have had iPhones (and subsequent iPads) for a few years, I was very resistant to getting a Mac, largely because of […]
