Dad's Classic Old Fashioned

If my father is behind the bar at a party or family dinner you will likely find him smiling while muddling a bit of cherry and orange together in a glass. He is always the bartender - whipping up cosmopolitans, Bloody Mary's, or espresso martinis for friends, but nothing does he make with quite as much excitement as he does an Old Fashioned. 

Summer Tomato Tarts

I made these colorful summer tomato tarts using some of my favorite flavors: ripe tomato, feta cheese, and fresh basil. These pastries are light yet filling, fluffy while crispy, and suuuuuuper colorful on your table. They are totally headache free. You can even finish putting your makeup on while they get all toasty in the oven. 

Creamy Avocado and Lemon Pasta

During the week, when I get home from work, I need meals that are made out of the stuff I always have in my fridge or pantry. For me, that "stuff" is usually a couple of avocados, some lemons, and several half-empty boxes of pasta. Seriously, my pantry is mostly pasta. Isn't yours? 

Kielbasa Pasta with Mushrooms and Homemade Marinara Sauce

This recipe for kielbasa pasta with mushrooms and homemade marinara sauce is delicious fresh from the pot or as leftovers! This sauce gets even better when it's been sitting in the fridge overnight. All the flavors really marinate and blend. Not to say it isn't great straight from the pot - it totally is! Just to say this is the perfect meal to make ahead of time in a large batch.
