Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Hello, friends, I’m back! Thanks for sticking around while I’ve been absent from my blog and social media for weeks. I’ve been incredibly busy with my new(ish) job and moving to a new place. It feels like Matt and I have been packing and unpacking and decorating and rearranging and building furniture for weeks. (By “building furniture” I mean I read IKEA instructions and he does all the work.)

We’ve been living in our new apartment for two weeks already and I finally got the kitchen ready to make Spaghetti with Meat Sauce. This is a very simple but ultra delicious recipe. It’s a riff on a classic bolognese, but without the long wait time nor the long list of ingredients.

White Chocolate Crunch Fudge

Some people love white chocolate, and some people hate it. Same goes for Valentine's Day. I obviously fall into the former category. Other things I love: roses and anything rose-scented and rose-colored, condensed milk,...
