Lamb chops are covered in a fresh herb and garlic marinade with a kick of lemon, then broiled. Start to finish in 20 minutes!

Herb and Garlic Lamb Chop Pops

I have been absolutely buzzing about sharing this recipe with all of you. Fall is (quickly) approaching, school is about to start back up, and as much as it seems like we had no free time during the summer, life gets CRAZY hectic once the routine starts up again. There is nothing that I love…

super easy salted toffee squares with toasted almonds and chocolate. These are what you've been missing in your life!

salted toffee squares

If you’ve ever tried those almond roca candies, you’ll know where I’m going with this. The candies have a hard almond toffee center, are covered in milk chocolate, and then rolled in toasted almonds.

Is it ok if I go cry in a corner?

As a self-professed do-er of everything, it really sucks when a week comes along and metaphorically kicks you in the nuts. Oliver brought the stomach flu home 190-ish hours ago (I’m totally not counting though). Right now, I’m the only one still really sick. Who gets sick for a solid week with the stomach flu? And…
