Spiralized Skillet Scalloped Potatoes with Mushrooms & Onions


After receiving so many gifts over the past year and a half, housewarming gifts, engagement gifts, shower gifts, wedding gifts… I have been trying to get my kitchen organized. When organizing one of my cabinets the other day I found my long lost friend – my Spiralizer! I got this GEFU Spiralfix Spiral Cutter from a good friend as a housewarming gift when Walter and I first moved to our townhouse last summer. I used it for a while, but it got buried below so many other new toys, it was a very happy reunion when I found it! 

Slow Cooker French Onion Soup – Recipe Hacks


It’s starting to feel like soup weather around here. Last weekend when my family was visiting we stopped for lunch at La Madeleine, a french fast-casual restaurant. I was pretty disappointed with my cup of french onion soup which lead to me craving it and searching for a good recipe. I opted for this slow cooker recipe by food blogger Holly of Spend With Pennies

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes


Pumpkin season has been in full swing for a month already. On September 6th Starbucks launched it’s Pumpkin Spice Latte for the season, many people are religious about their PSL and their fall starts with their first sip, haha. I’m not a Starbucks coffee drinker, but I do appreciate what it has done for pumpkin flavored everythings everywhere. Because of the PSL craze seemingly everything now comes in a pumpkin flavor. And don’t even get me started on Trader Joe’s, it is a pumpkin lover’s dream land – pumpkin cookies, pumpkin yogurt, pumpkin waffles, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds… the list is never ending! Basically what I’m saying is don’t be surprised if this isn’t the only pumpkin recipe you see featured here this fall 🙂
