What to make for Easter – BRUNCH Edition – Spinach Egg and Cheese Galette

I love that rustic countryside look.  Our dining room table is made of old fence posts and barn wood.  We have a vintage hutch that is dinged up and chipped in the best possible way.  The husband made me a night stand with that same look.  Its my favorite piece of furniture in our house. In my dream kitchen, the island is a french pastry table – one that has turned wooden legs with chipping paint.  The rest of my dream kitchen would of course be equally dreamy but this island is the literal central piece that ties it all together. In this dream kitchen of course, I will churn…

What to make for Easter – BRUNCH Edition: Carrot Cake Zucchini Bread with Cream Cheese Icing

I am a brunch girl.  When I think about my “desert island” foods, they are all brunch items.  My family’s Easter brunch is right up my dream-food alley.   Hello, coffee cake, fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls, and creamy potatoes.   But, when I think of Easter desserts, only one thing comes to mind.  Carrot Cake.  I love carrot cake, but carrot cake at brunch isn’t really a thing.  Its probably the only food I feel bummed to miss by celebrating Easter over brunch.

My family has always fallen in the brunch camp.  Until I met the husband, I didn’t personally know anyone whose family celebrated over Easter dinner.  But, I guess when the kids are grown there aren’t any eggs to hide, and time of day doesn’t matter much. As with any holiday, every family has their must haves “staple.”  Staples are the things traditions are made of….But I also love introducing new things to the mix, especially when your family is large (that would be me!) or you aren’t a big fan of all of the…

Baked Chipotle Chicken Chimichanga Burritos

I have a fantasy to confess.  Since it almost never happens, I am still labeling it a “fantasy” even though its not a terribly lofty aspiration.  On the rare occasion when the husband makes it home before I do, I want to be able to call and say, “stick it in the oven for 40 minutes at 375.  I’ll be home in a bit.”  And when I get home, dinner is READY.  As in, ready when I walk through the door.  For those of you who do 95%+ of the cooking for your family, maybe you can relate?   Or maybe you see just how unexciting my life truly is…
