A Fresh Start

A Fresh Start

I’ll admit… I lost my love of cooking over the past year or so. We sold our old house about 2 years ago with the beautiful kitchen and have been renting a super cute 40’s style house in our dream neighborhood. The kitchen in the […]

Not Your Momma’s Chicken Pot Pie

Growing up, I loved chicken pot pie night. I thought it was soooo yummy. However, the pot pie I ate was a frozen one and was filled with preservatives and just bad tasting stuff. I had no idea how truly awful it was until I […]
