Easy Greek Pasta Salad Easy Greek Pasta Salad By Life and Kitchen 06/25/14 17:08 This pasta salad was born when I clipped a coupon for Marzetti dressing in the Sunday circular and didn’t know what to buy.

Nutella Fudge with Sea Salt Nutella Fudge with Sea Salt By Life and Kitchen 02/23/12 02:52 Jake, a man who loves Ferrero Rocher candies and had never tasted Nutella, proclaimed that there was no possible way that he could like Nutella. It sounded “gross.” Clearly, there [...]

Cranberry Apple Crescent Rolls Cranberry Apple Crescent Rolls By Life and Kitchen 01/10/14 16:55 Well, my plan from earlier this week to post healthy recipes is already taking a hiatus. But you can only eat so much oatmeal and whole wheat toast, amIright? Sometimes you just need a pastry. And, hey, we rounded out the day with veggie chili that was...
Cranberry Lemon Bars Cranberry Lemon Bars By Life and Kitchen 12/15/12 20:36 Sometimes, the world doesn’t make sense, and what happened in CT yesterday makes me want to snuggle my little girl all day and all night.
