Quick to assemble and easy to enjoy, this Greek pasta salad is the perfect dish to pass at all your summer BBQs.Have you seen Moana yet? It's a favorite in our house right now. And if I'm being honest, it's just as much for Robert and me as it is for Ellie. (I'm even rocking the soundtrack in my car on a daily basis!) Robert has taken to calling basically every meal we eat a "boat snack," while I love the themes of female empowerment. And I cry pretty much every time Moana restores Te Fiti's heart... That slow motion/wind/lava ash combo is just too much for me!Β

Happy Father's Day from Homemade Hijinks Hi, friends! Is this thing still on? I'm back after an unintended hiatus! There's really no reason for my radio silence... but it feels good to be back! I'm refocusing on scheduling myself some time each week to cook and write, so hopefully you'll be hearing from me much more consistently from now on. Life just got busy for awhile, but this SAHM definitely needs a productive/creative outlet to stay sane!

Warm, spicy comfort served up on a spoon. We basically skipped winter in Memphis this year. On one hand, I'm kind of okay with it. I dressed Ellie in a short-sleeved onesie today and I got to marvel at the glory of her many arms rolls. (Chubby babies, y'all... I just can't.) But on the other hand, all of my wonderful plans for sharing my recipes for roast, meatloaf, etc. were pretty much foiled by my unwillingness to turn on the oven. In FEBRUARY.
