Laura's New Look

The summer heat doesn’t mean I don’t still crave the occasional comfort food of meatloaf. But I know I don’t want to crank up the oven to bake off the meatloaf. The solution? The grill, of course. And since I want to eat peaches as often as possible when they are in season, I want to make my own peach barbecue sauce. So I did. And then to top it all, since I loved the cedar planked steak from July, … continued…

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 3 months since our sweet little boy, Mac, was born. As exciting as it is to have a new baby, there are a lot of changes that come with adding a 2nd child to the family! As I’ve talked about before, healthy eating requires planning ahead, and that has been more of a struggle for us the past few months. We’re finally getting our heads above water and developing somewhat of a routine. … continued…

With the abundance of blackberries in the market, I can’t resist coming home with a freshly-picked quart every Saturday. So when Jenny mentioned she would be posting about the berries, she suggested a sauce for steak. Since I love sweet and savory, I thought it was a spot-on suggestion. I love using this as a spread for a sandwich, but you could easily pass it with roasts or steaks, the same way we pass cranberry sauce with turkey at the … continued…

I grew up on a farm in southern Indiana, and I love to go home and visit every chance I get.  I was recently there, and the blackberries were ripe and delicious.                                I’ll be honest, lots of times we do nothing with the blackberries other than make different cobbler variations.  I decided this year would be different, so I made it my quest to find something to do with the berries besides cobbler!
