Raspberry Chia Jam

My mom doesn’t have many worthy opponents when it comes to jam. It’s for good reason that her annual berry batches are in constant demand at our house! It can be slathered on just about any object and devoured without question. It makes a regular appearance in oatmeal, on German pancakes, and in the middle…

Mini Meatloaves

Apparently I’m on a muffin tin kick this autumn? I could be imagining it, but somehow smaller portions seem more manageable when there’s a kid to feed. He deemed these mini meatloaves “meat cupcakes” and I feel as though he couldn’t be more spot on. They’re ridiculously easy to throw together, use only one bowl,…

Quiche Lorraine [v.Keto]

Our last two trips to Europe have rekindled our love of this classic dish.  With an ever-abundant supply of eggs in the spring and summer, we’re always looking for creative ways to utilize them.  Since we limit our carbohydrate intake on the regular, we eat a great many frittatas and scrambles, but rarely find ourselves…

Fathead Dough [v.Keto]

This dough is incredibly versatile.  We use it for just about everything while we’re in a carb restriction cycle.  In most cases, it’s almost BETTER than bread or standard dough, simply because it’s so rich and dense. We use it as a pizza crust, a flat bread, rounds, and even pie crust.  Use your imagination…

Green Bean Tarragon Salad

During the warm months, I inevitably crave all things COLD.  Salads, naturally, fall under this umbrella, but I so often find myself tired of the regular rotation. Since summer brings an abundance of seasonal goodness, I’m vowing to introduce more new salads to our dinner roster! Enter this Green Bean Tarragon salad.  Inspired by our…

London, England

WHAT TO DO // Wear your walking shoes — London is best seen by foot! Depending on how long you’ll be in the city, purchasing an Oyster pass for the Tube will get you just about anywhere when your feet fail you. You can buy a single day pass or a multi day pass at…

London // Intro

Miles walked: 10 Flights climbed: 17 Steps: 21,000 Temperature: 81 damn degrees! (but hardly complaining) Much of our first day was spent in east London. Being a bit tired from a ridiculous 24 hours of travel, it was rather refreshing to begin our journey at a level pace (and away from gaggles of [other] tourists)….

Iceland // [Seyðisfjörður, Akureyri, and back to Reykjavík]

After checking out of our cabin, we stopped briefly for a coffee and a quick tour of Djúpivogur.  The town itself was quiet, and, as we’ve found most towns to be, very adorable.  We landed at a small cafe that had friendly faces and hot coffee.  Nothing else was open, so our stay was short. On our…
