Olive Oil Alfredo Sauce

Rich, creamy Alfredo sauce using olive oil instead of butter! #PledgeforEVOO #ad

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pompeian. I only write about products that I genuinely love and, as always, all opinions are my own. I mentioned the other day that I’ve been doing my grocery shopping on a different day of the week because I’m way off my game. And…

Homemade Pesto

Homemade Pesto - So easy and full of flavor! Recipe at www.theliveinkitchen.com

I want to read all the books. When I was young (oh, I used to be young) I worked as a manager of a swimming pool, which meant I had all day to sit in the sun and read. Oprah’s book club and literary classics tend to be my jam (do not get me started…

Spicy BBQ Sauce

Spicy BBQ Sauce // The Live-In Kitchen

Why hasn’t anyone made BBQ soup? Just one big bowl of BBQ sauce. There are probably health reasons for that. After trying Tieghan’s BBQ sauce (that tastes just like my favorite Sweet Baby Ray’s!)

Pistachio Pesto

The Monday Menu 12/2/2013

This might be the best thing I’ve ever eaten. That’s a pretty heavy, possibly over used statement, I know. A phrase you might expect to be reserved for cake, cake, and more cake. So maybe this is just the best non-cake thing I’ve ever eaten. Still not a bad title. I just need you to…

Oobleck - a fun experiment to do with your kids. It acts like both a liquid and a solid!

I don’t have much patience for childish things. I have zero desire to play legos. I don’t think The Very Hungry Caterpillar is great literature. I definitely don’t understand screaming all things all the time while jumping up and down and spinning and lookwhatIcandooooo!!!!! Admittedly, this is something I need to work on. While I…
