Here we are, friends. It's the day before Valentine's Day, also known as my LAST DAY of doing the Whole30 diet (didn't cheat once, woooo!) and also known as the Day of Influenza. Both of my boys have been hit and are in the midst of a movie marathon.Read More

I was honored to be asked to write a guest post by the talented and generous Chef Dennis! He was one of the first bloggers to reach out to me when I entered into the world of food blogging. I have found him to be incredibly resourceful and kind, not to mention the fact that his blog is filled with delicious food. Thank you so much, Chef Dennis, for this wonderful opportunity!
