June 2019

Oh my, it has been a very long time since I have posted any recipes. I take the photos, share them on Instagram, but then stop the creativity train there. Matt told me it doesn’t have to be perfect, and that kind of released me from the blog paralysis…well sort of. If I could only talk in pictures then everything would be great in my world - words do not come too easily to me. So, let me stumble through this post. However, I get to talk about food here and friends and that is enjoyable.

Speaking of enjoyable, our Krause friends are back in town for the summer from Colorado. We love when Jillian arrives with her family as one, we know summer is finally here, and two, Jillian loves to talk recipes, create, lets me take heaps of photos, and she doesn’t mind our super teeny kitchen space. Our kids hang well and so do we! Last summer, Jillian brought over a tray full of freshly picked beautiful red juicy summer lovin’ strawberries and ingredients to make a berry bruschetta AND wait for it….strawberry margaritas. We seriously have some of the most awesome friends!

We are already planning for another al fresco recipe night with Jillian. There is talk of clam chowder and lobstah’s. Stay tuned!

Lemon and Rosemary Sea Salt Cookies

A cookie without chocolate chips?! That just doesn't happen in my house but, last night I was in a mood to try something different. We all need to try different things, right? Go crazy every once in a while. Forgoing chocolate chips was my idea of crazy? Hmmm….I need to get out more! I was definitely questioning the savory idea of an herbal cookie, but I love rosemary and of course, sea salt. I thought I would give it a try and I am so happy I did. Thank you, Pinterest and Chrissy Carter!

Start Your Day with Homemade Granola and a Sprinkle of Sea Salt

I love the Smitten Kitchen cookbook so much that I have post-it notes tagged on most of the 300 pages as reminders to get in the kitchen and try them out. Most of the recipes from Deb Perelman’s Smitten Kitchen cookbook uses simple ingredients and yields amazing results. Once you make a few dishes from her cookbook, you feel like a kitchen success. Well, I will speak for myself. (P.S. Deb Perleman has her second cookbook coming out soon! I can't wait!) Read on to hear about her amazing granola recipe....with our addition of sea salt!
