Coleslaw with Greek Yogurt

My boyfriend and I got together with some friends last weekend. We went out for a few drinks on the water, and came back to have pulled pork that he’d had in the slow cooker all day. I offered to bring slaw to go with the pulled pork, and I also brought the cheese spaetzle

Spaetzle, small German dumplings, is one of my favorite foods of all time. We used to have spaetzle all the time with goulash when I was little. There’s a German restaurant not too far from my house that does spaetzle with cheese (like a mac and cheese) and ham. I wanted to do my own

Lemon Meringue Pie

Lemon Meringue Pie

I love classic custard and meringue pies, especially lemon meringue and lime meringue pies. This recipe is perfect for summer, but let’s be honest, I make it year-round.

Kitchen Update – Finally Finished!
