Celebrate Soup Season with this Make It Your Own Minestrone, my friends. It's the perfect way to use up any vegetables you have lingering in the fridge, any pasta you have in the pantry will work well, and you can simmer it up in no time to enjoy for lunch or dinner. Minestone is one of the mainstay meals of the residents of Sardinia, Italy, an area of the world recognized as a Blue Zone due to their healthy lifestyle and longevity.

Easiest Ever Apple Cake with Heavenly Vanilla Sauce

I'm not kidding when I say this is the Easiest Ever Apple Cake~ made of mostly pantry ingredients plus apples, mixed up in one bowl, baked in one basic baking pan you likely have in your collection~ that you stir together in no time and let bake on its own while you whip up the Heavenly Vanilla Sauce. Inspired by the amazing apple crepes with vanilla sauce my beautiful mom made every year for our long-standing neighborhood Easter brunch, this nostalgic riff brings all of the feels and comes together effortlessly. Oh, my! Sure do hope you love it as much as I do.


BLT Salad Skewers

These super simple BLT Salad Skewers with the sweet and tangy Creamy Red Wine Vinaigrette are the BEST way to bid farewell to summer in the near future, my friends. Shake up the dressing in a covered jar while the Brown Sugar Bacon cooks itself in the oven, and then spend just a few moments threading the lettuce chunks, Brown Sugar Bacon slices and fresh cherry tomatoes on skewers to cover and tuck away in the fridge until you're ready to drizzle with dressing and enjoy!
