  • Best Ever Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

    I finally mastered the perfect dark chocolate buttercream frosting! Not too sweet (yes, that is a thing), perfectly chocolaty and smooth! Super simple and very easy. This batch will frost a two layer 9 inch cake or 24 cupcakes with a little leftover… and you know what? You can freeze buttercream frosting! Seriously! Pop that bit of leftover frosting in the freezer for when you have a frosting emergency… that exists right?           Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.

  • Bermuda: Travel Guide Update

    We love Bermuda. I have been traveling to Bermuda for vacations since I was a baby so it feels like home to me and I love that my kids now feel that way too. I published a travel guide last year that has all the important information of where to eat, where to stay and of course what to do. I am happy to report I have some great additions to add to that list! (Read the original too!) Matt and I went out for Valentine’s dinner to Barracuda Grill which I mentioned before… but I forgot just how good it is! Easily the best restaurant on the Island! Barracuda…

  • EASY Paleo Pan Cake

    We love a weekend pancake breakfast… I don’t love standing over the stove for a half hour and making my family wait to eat until my pancakes are done at the very end… know what I mean? So I thought, why can’t I just put the whole thing in the oven and make a “pan cake”- well, of course I can! The real genius of this is the Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour– it makes THE BEST pancakes and waffles. I’m sure another pancake mix could work here so it’s worth a try with the method… but if you aren’t a nut free house try the Bob’s Red Mill!…

  • Quick Pickles

    We love pickles around here. It is so easy to make a quick pickle and it elevates any dish. Tacos, salads, burgers, stir-fry, rice bowls, sandwiches… okay I will stop. The tang and crunch of a quick pickle just makes everything taste better! We love keeping red onion quick pickles in the fridge (my kids LOVE them) but don’t stop at red onions. Carrots, radishes, cucumbers (obviously), green beans, cauliflower… so many options! I usually double the batch of vinegar and make two different types at once! I use honey here as a sweetener because I always try and go the less refined route, but I really like the earthiness…

  • Cashew Butter Cookies (Paleo!)

    Remember those seriously easy peanut butter cookies that only had three ingredients? Well why can’t they be cashew butter? And while we are at it let’s make them paleo with coconut sugar instead!     I started with Smitten Kitchen’s recipe for Salted Peanut Butter Cookies and made some simple swaps. Super easy, low maintenance recipe,  but I recommend using a mixer because nut butter can be hard to stir!           Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.

  • 2019 in the rear view, Welcome 2020!

    Happy New Year! I hope you have all gotten back on track after the holiday run and are ready for 2020! I am excited to see what this year will bring and how I can continue to grow this space. Thank you so very much for all the support last year; it is invaluable! 2019 was an interesting year for me, lots of loss and lots of growth as I discussed in my post on turning 40… oh yes and I turned 40. I am happy to leave it all in the rear view and march ahead into the new decade with what I have learned. First I need to…

  • Graham Toffee Candy

    Graham crackers smothered in vanilla toffee & dark chocolate with a sprinkle of pecans… I really struggled to name this recipe… it is not a cookie. Is it bark? Is it candy? Is it the so called “Christmas Crack”? Let’s not limit this to Christmas because it could (and should) be made all year round… so let’s call it Graham Toffee Candy! I was playing around with the “Christmas Crack” that is all over Pinterest and thought “This would taste so much better with graham crackers… and maybe pecans”.  I was right! The candy here is a ridiculously easy vanilla toffee that is divine! You could swap in butterscotch chips…
