This is a departure from my usual food posts, but you know I had to share this fun little upcycle project that my guy and I tackled this month – a play kitchen that we made from an old entertainment center.Read More
I had some things to share with you today, but I just can’t do it. Talking about anything other than yesterday’s heartbreaking, unthinkable tragedy feels wrong. And even then … right now I’m feeling like there’s really not much to say.
I’m sure you’re grappling and grieving just as much as I am. Something about this last school shooting has made me snap … and mourn … like none previous. And what a sad thing to have to even see myself say: “this last school shooting;” “like none previous.”Read More
I’ve been blogging here at Kitchen Treaty since March, pumping out so many recipes that I accidentally just typed “pumpkin” instead of “pumping” (seriously). I’ve focused so much on content for these past seven months that I realized it might be nice to just take a step back and just do some splainin’, Lucille Ball style.

Good thing, because everything else – diapers, clothes, swing/bouncy chair, stroller, car seat, etc. etc. etc.) cost a small fortune. Which will be completely, totally, 100% worth it for our small bundle.Read More
If you’re looking for an easy and budget-friendly place card idea for Thanksgiving, look no further. All you need are crabapples with their perfectly long stems, some paper, tape, scissors, a pen, and about 15 minutes. (And they’re totally cute, too.)
I love these simple place cards for Thanksgiving. Little paper flags fly from long crabapple stems – perfect for the casual Turkey Day table.
Best of all, they’re so simple to make.Read More
