To me, a kitchen is so much more than it’s recipes. Our kitchen is a gathering place – a place to nourish your soul as well as your body. It’s also a place of prayer. We start dinner every night with a prayer, and to celebrate the National Day of Prayer today, I’m sharing our favorites in free, printable cards.
Saying grace nightly became a family tradition when my son was 3. His preschool said grace before snack and he was thrilled that’d he learn the prayer and wanted to repeat it. After that one was mastered by both kids, we started mixing in other prayers that were special to us.

I am hosting my 7th annual soup swap this month and – like everything these days – it’s looking a little different thanks to the pandemic. Since we can’t gather in person, we’re pivoting to a virtual soup swap.
While it’s definitely not my first choice of party format, the point of the soup swap has always been togetherness. It’s a time to catch up with each other and share some comfort – in warm bowls and warm words. And that can absolutely be done from a distance!
I’m a sentimental fool, so I love reflecting on the year as it ends. Despite this year being a mess in so many ways – this blog was a bit of a bright spot for me.
I’m proud of everything I’ve put on the blog this year – but the kid content will definitely hold a special place in my heart. We hosted 18 live kitchen play dates on Facebook, shared some of our favorite kid-friendly recipes on the blog, and posted a whole year’s worth of fruit and veggie bingo cards! In the chaos and uncertainty of the year, making these memories with my kids was worth it’s weight in gold.
You guys had your favorites too! And I was excited to see how many of my favorites were also popular with you.
Winter may not have a reputation for lots of fresh food – but there are so many things in season during the winter months! Our favorite game – fruit and veggie bingo – is a great way to try out some of this season’s fares!
This game is a great way to get kids (and adults!) to start thinking about seasonal produce and trying new things – after all, if you want to cross of a square, you need to try what’s in it!
I am so excited to bring your another year of #Choctoberfest! This is a super fun week of chocolate delights – and I think it’s just what 2020 needs! I’m so excited to share some brand new chocolate recipes this week!
#Choctoberfest is our annual celebration of chocolate recipes, now in its 6th year. I’ve teamed up with some talented food bloggers to share dozens of milk, dark, and white chocolate dishes for this year’s virtual event. Plus, we’ve pooled our resources to bring you an exciting giveaway you don’t want to miss!
Having a well-stocked freezer is invaluable – because you really never know what life will throw your way. Whether you’re forced to stay home because of a COVID quarantine or you just can’t make it to the store because of car trouble, having meals in the freezer ready-to-go can be immensely helpful.
Today, I’m going to show you what I keep in my freezer for emergencies – and how I use it.

I recently asked on Instagram what your biggest current dinner challenge is. One of the most common responses? Making interesting dinners that don’t involve a ton of cleanup.
