    My Favorite Pesto Sauce

    I am totally on a pesto sauce kick, guys. Now that fresh basil is showing up in the grocery stores (or I am just noticing it since it’s spring now) I grab a bunch and make a quick pesto sauce for our family dinner. I find the store bought jar sauce too salty for my liking. So I make this one instead. It’s super easy and quick. This is what I do but you can adjust the taste to your liking. My Favorite Pesto Sauce 1 bunch of washed basil (about three cups) 1/2 – 3/4 cup of olive oil (I’ve also used avocado oil when I have it around)…

    Deconstructed.

    I have a gorgeous bouquet of flowers that my mother in law gave me two weeks ago and today it’s still looking pretty decent. It is full of white alstroemeria, magenta gerber daisies and stargazer lilies and lots of greenery. The alstroemeria (peruvian lily) are lasting the longest and the gerber daisies went a few days ago. But some of the stargazers are still around and a few are even blooming. I was looking at the stargazers a few days ago and was noticing all go the intricate parts that make up this beautiful flower. I then had an idea to deconstruct one and photograph its parts on my iPhone…

    Joanna’s Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas.

    So, those enchiladas we had a couple of weeks ago are still on my mind. They were really easy to make and even easier to eat. I’d love to share the recipe with you today so that you can get in on the goodness. YUM. Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas, from Joanna Gaines’ new cookbook, Magnolia Table PSA: If you don’t have this cookbook, you need to stop what you’re doing right this second and get one. Just like her awesome show, Fixer Upper, Joanna infused this book with warmth and personality. It’s like she’s talking to you, with the way she weaves stories into the book with her recipes. It’s…

    Rob’s Summer Sangria.

    Oh, summer time. The weather is warm, you have no idea what day it is, your dinners are grilled and enjoyed on the back patio – some of my favorite things about summer. One of our favorite drinks to enjoy during the season is sangria. Rob and I had it for the first time on a family trip to Rome a few years ago. We left our apartment in search of a fun evening atmosphere and to enjoy a good meal. We came upon the canal in the city and it was lined with outdoor restaurants with people sitting out on the sidwalk enjoying fresh pasta, live music and singing…
