Honey & Champagne Cranberry Sauce

by Lauren


Here it is, that Thanksgiving recipe I promised. It involves champagne. You know you’ll have a bottle of that open on Thanksgiving morning. If you can spare a cup, swap it for the water in your classic cranberry sauce and try this out.

Lemon & Feta Aioli

by Lauren

As you may know, I have a big family consisting of 6 siblings and one awesome mom.

After church on Sunday, it was our weekly ritual to hit up Costco to stock up for the week (yes, the week; groceries never lasted long in our house). Naturally, we would fill up on samples, while my mom did all the shopping.
