I love this Thanksgiving leftover recipe! To be honest, I can’t remember how we came across it- whether we came up with it on our own or saw one somewhere and decided to make it- but either way, it’s become a day after Thanksgiving staple at our house and I am so excited to share it here! Later this week I’ll be sharing our family Thanksgiving recipes, so you can experience the same tastes we do, but for now, here is the super simple recipe for the panini. Sliced sour dough bread Olive oil or butter for brushing Spoonful premade […]

Creamy Green Chile Chicken Soup

Once again these pictures are from the […]

What’s not to love about diced tomatoes perfectly seasoned squished between soft noodles and copious amounts of cheese? The great thing about this recipe is it is SO easy to double. Not only that, it freezes beautifully! So if you need to take someone a meal or just don’t want to cook, this is a great meal to have […]

Since things are finally slowing down a bit here I can get caught up on posting some seriously fun events. Back in February my girlie friend Jasmine, from Jasmine Nicole Photography, approached me about wanting to do a styled shoot for St. Patrick’s Day. Of course I said yes but it was one of those things that, if it was going to happen, it would have to be fast! So we met to talk about what she was thinking, started a Pinterest board and began contacting vendors and models. All in all, I think concept to execution was something like […]

Unfortunately, I’m not a great photographer and if you don’t know much about food photography- well, let’s just say it’s not as forgiving as parties can be… Fortunately, I have some really talented photographer friends and Jasmine, of Jasmine Nicole Photography, agreed to help me out.
