Plum and Oatmeal Crisp

With stone fruits in season for the summer, one must master the art of crisps and crumbles.  There is no reason to bring brownies to the party, when there is perfectly good fruit out there!  And really- you could probably make the crisp in less time, plus it has a more "I put work into this" feel.  That always makes your guests feel valued.

Arugula Pesto with Goat Cheese Crostini

Hello World!  I'm back!  And with another human being in the kitchen with me!  Colton Sterling Ritter has completely stolen my heart and wouldn't you know it- he is a great eater too!

I shocked myself with how quickly I got back to cooking.  My mother (God bless her!) stayed with us for a couple weeks and cooked for us while I recovered from my C-section.  But after a few more weeks of meals (so helpful- thank you local friends and family!) I was ready to be back in the kitchen.  Colton will be 2 months tomorrow!
