Two-Cheese Spinach Pasta Toss

Two-Cheese Baby Spinach Pasta Toss

Is it spring or still winter?

Hard to tell with the cool temperatures and patches of snow lingering in my backyard. Maybe if I let my music playlist titled "Long Hot Summer" play on repeat long enough winter will take the hint and hit the road.

Until warmer temperatures arrive this Two-Cheese Spinach Pasta Toss fits right in with this cool in between season weather.

Double Choclolate Chunk Brownies for Valentine's Day

Double Chocolate Chunk Brownies

I’m a firm believer chocolate brownies are the ultimate dessert. There's something very comforting about biting into a soft fudgy brownie with a glass of milk nearby to wash it down!

This Valentine’s Day I'm skipping the usual box of chocolates and baking a batch of these Double Chocolate Chunk Fudge Brownies for my wife (sans the walnuts).
