Irish Soda Bread for Jessica's Virtual 'Pot of Gold' Shower! by Rachel

I don't know about you, but when a friend tells me that they are pregnant, I'm pretty much just as excited about their pregnancy as I am for my own. I know how much joy I've come to know from having a baby and I'm always so excited when another friend…

Coconut Milk Blueberry Pancakes

Coconut Milk Blueberry Pancakes by Rachel

Breakfast has been pretty hard for me since going dairy free while nursing Will. Cereal is out because I don't really like any milk substitutes, I like cheese with my eggs, pancakes/waffles/French toast all require butter and milk. *sigh* I've been eating a lot of toast and bagels topped with coconut oil with a side of fruit and…

Mini Baguettes

Mini Baguettes by Rachel

PagesMini BaguettesI'd recently fallen out of the habit of making homemade bread (really, really fallen out of it). I think with having a new baby, a toddler running around, and just regular old life, something had to give and that was it. With company coming, though, I wanted to make something special and I was feeling the baking…

Garden Minestrone

Garden Minestrone by Rachel

It's hot and steamy outside and the last thing that you want to do is eat a bowl of hot and steamy soup. BUT, when it rains for two weeks straight,, you might go a little crazy and make this soup.

Greek Pasta Salad

Greek Pasta Salad by Rachel

I'm such a sucker for pasta salad, especially in the warmer months. I love that I can make it for lunch one day and then enjoy it for several days after - usually it just gets better and better on those subsequent days, too.This pasta salad is particularly light and extremely flavorful. Packed with tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, herbs…

Roasted Strawberry Muffins with Lemon-Vanilla Bean Butter

Roasted Strawberry Muffins with Lemon-Vanilla Bean Butter by Rachel

PagesRoasted Strawberry Muffins with Lemon-Vanilla Bean ButterI made a resolution to myself this spring that I would cook and bake with the fresh berries that are available this time of year. I have a habit of just serving them on the side with breakfast or as a snack in the afternoon. I don't cook and bake with them nearly enough.…

DIY: Homemade Cheese Crackers

DIY: Homemade Cheese Crackers by Rachel

Cheez-Its have been a longtime favorite snack of mine. They're easy to grab, salty, and crunchy - 3 of my favorite things about a snack. As usual, though, I decided to try my hand at making them myself. And wouldn't you know it? These taste about a million times better than the boxed version!! Shocking, I know.I've made a couple…
