Turkey and Brie Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese is definitely a favorite in my house.  How can you not like toasty, crunchy, cheesy hand-held sammies? I love finding new and delicious ways to make grilled cheese, from varying the type of cheese, to incorporating meats or vegetables, and even adding spreads or other condiments. This grilled cheese idea started from a…

20 Lemon Desserts to Celebrate Summer

Summer is in full swing, and I am celebrating by rounding up 20 lemon desserts for you!  I love enjoying the long days filled with sunshine (and hopefully not too much humidity!), sipping lemonade out on the deck, spending weekends outdoors, and just generally savoring the slower pace of summer.  These citrus-y desserts are just the thing…

Maple Glazed Salmon with Almonds

A couple of months ago, DH and I went out to dinner with some friends to a really nice local restaurant.  It is one of those small and kitschy places, where they really go out of their way to create a dining experience for you, as opposed to just serving you some food.  We don’t often…
