Mamma Mia

[quote]All you need is love and good food! [/quote] That is according to Mamma Mia, a new restaurant in the University Mall Food Court. I had the opportunity to photograph some of their dishes for the menu in the store. All of the food I tried was fantastic! Like them on Facebook for deals! Continue Reading

More from Boston

So this is really late, but here are some more photos from our trip to Boston. Including making pretty pink princess cupcakes (a much anticipated event for Evelyn), a visit to Harvard square with a stop at Hi Rise bakery and Burdicks (a much anticipated stop for Kevin). Continue Reading


It has been a very long time since I have posted. Life has been a little crazy in the last few months. I graduated, yay! We received acceptance letters for graduate school, decided where to go (BYU), moved, sold Mr. Bugg, bought a scooter, have been spending lots of time with family. Lately, we’ve been… Continue Reading

Dulce de Leche

Apples are great, but they are even better with caramel, especially dulce de leche. David Lebovitz has a great recipe that doesn’t take terribly long (1.5 hours as opposed to 3-4). Another great treat with dulce de leche is Hagen Daaz dulce de leche ice cream. We had some last night for a Valentine’s Day… Continue Reading

A Little Tea Party

My latest assignment was “hat” based on The Hat Book by Rodney Smith. After brainstorming for a while I happened upon the idea of portraying what kind of food would be eaten by someone wearing a particular hat. Naturally I wanted to use my gorgeous Paris hat which always makes me think of a tea… Continue Reading

I’ve tried a few recipes from The Pioneer Woman but this is by far my favorite (at least up to this point). So if you are looking for a deliciously sweet red sauce for pasta,… Continue Reading

It’s been way too long since my last post! I should have a few new posts in the next few days with delicious recipes, so keep an eye out for them! We have had nice weather for the last few weeks, even though September is usually cold. This week it really seems like fall though.… Continue Reading

Peaches for you, peaches for me

I love peaches! They are one of my favorite things about fall. Costco had some white flesh peaches that I had never tried before. They looked pretty good so we bought some. They may just be the best peaches I have had. They are so sweet and full of flavor! They are fantastic with cottage… Continue Reading

Ice Cream, Cottage Cheese and Peaches

Today I decided I would feature some of my favorite things to eat: Ice cream (Peanut Butter Cup), Cottage Cheese and Peaches. I absolutely love ice cream, especially in a sugar cone, but I’ll eat it in a bowl just as readily. It’s a perfect way to cool down in the summer so I’ve had… Continue Reading
