I’ve officially started prepare for my brother Tyler’s grooms dinner! Made the invite, booked the hotel, and got my recipes together in one place. The wedding is in 52 days.


I’m very honored that my dad hired me to be the event planner and caterer. Coincidentally as I’m typing this blog entry I got a call for catering another wedding rehearsal dinner. I love wedding season!

The menu I will be serving and one of the recipes is below for you to enjoy.

1/2 small bottle Italian dressing

3 medium zucchini, cut into bite-size pieces
3 carrots, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
1 small red onion, thinly sliced

Prep Day: Pour the dressing mixture over the vegetables, tossing gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours, stirring occasionally.

Serve Day: Uncover and stir. Serve with a slotted spoon.



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
