Inside Peek: Kate’s Dining Room & Kitchen

Have you ever lived in and worked on a house and wondered who’s lived there throughout the years–if it was someone’s “forever house” or if it was just a stopping point? What memories were made there? What you would do if you ever found the person who walled off the hallway leading to your kid’s bedroom and then created a new doorway into the bedroom directly off the kitchen, but it wasn’t a normal-sized doorway and couldn’t accommodate normal-sized doors, …

Inside Peek: Sara’s Office

So we decided to do something a little different this week.  One of the interesting things about blogging is that you open up a little part of your life to the world.  I will admit one of my favorite things is getting to peek inside the creative spaces of my favorite bloggers; whether it be their kitchens, their craft rooms, their kids rooms, or any room really.  I feel like I already know them on a somewhat personal level, and …

Quick & Easy Noodle Stir-Fry

So after 5 weeks of chaos, dust, tears, angst, sweat, and “Moves Like Jagger”played on repeat at 2:00 in the morning, we have, like, 97% of a kitchen. We still have a few little projects and we also have to make the 4-hour trek to Ikea for a third time (don’t EVEN get me started. I vow to all of you here and now that if I ever do another Ikea kitchen, I will live within a 90-minute radius of …

Caribbean Rubbed Pork Chops with Mango Salsa

I’m always a little leery of foods with Caribbean spice blends.  They always sound great to me, with a lot of the Latin flavors I love like citrus, cumin, and tropical fruits.  But they also usually include some traditionally autumnal spices (for those of us who live in the US) like cinnamon, cloves, and allspice.  I once had a bad experience with a Jamaican Jerk recipe that left my chicken wings tasting like pumpkin pie and I’ve been gun shy …

Quick & Easy Garlic-Parmesan Rolls

So you guys know I love my homemade yeast breads. Like Breadsticks and French bread and Rosemary Focaccia and Flatbread and all sorts of yeasty goodness. I find making them very fun and satisfying and relaxing (all of which are promptly negated by the very un-fun, un-satisfying, and tension-inducing moment when I take a look around my kitchen and realize that my exuberant mess isn’t going to clean itself). However. Sometimes, it’s just not going to happen. Like on those …

Sweet & Salty Caramel Snack Mix

You can always tell when the Our Best Bites girls are stressed out because we tend to post a lot of sweets. I had excellent intentions of posting a quick and easy dinner today, but I was overcome by the temptation of Pretzel M&Ms, which are simultaneously the most glorious and the most horrific creation in the history of creations. I promise, I’ll post something healthy next week. It seems like every fall, we start posting cereal and/or popcorn mixes. …

Apple Cider Floats

Remember the time I was ready for it to be fall, but it was still hot enough outside to fry eggs on the sidewalk?  Okay, so it’s not that hot where I live, but still.  We’re in full-on shorts and flip flops attire and probably will be for a while.  What you need this time of year is a spiced autumn wonder disguised as a cold frosty summer treat.  Perfect for those in between months where you’re totally confused as …
