Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Cate Mezyk - January 22, 2015

I made this easy dip for a recent night out with friends, and while doing so, I thought to myself, “This would be a perfect recipe for a Super Bowl party.” Because, I mean – bacon. Also, this is an easy one. And I love easy recipes for a party. There’s far too much to do when hosting a crowd to be slaving over a …

Eating’s My Favorite

Wildtree Freezer Workshop with Carina

Dinners. Real homemade dinners consisting of the 4 food groups have sadly been far and few between in the Hiveley house lately. I’m feeling distracted and busy, clearly not able to do it all. But why should healthy family meals be pushed to the bottom of my list like they are? I needed a little help to get back into the swing of things. So my …

Steeped Tea - organic tea

If you’re not excited for tomorrow’s big event by now, then call me shocked. Cuz it’s all set to be our best yet. And one of the reasons it’s going to be so amazing is the wide variety of small businesses joining us. One such business is Cathy Plotnick, the ParTeaLady. She’s a part of the Steeped Tea business – and here’s a fun little tidbit …

Mom’s Homemade Marinara and Goat Cheese Dip

Cate Mezyk - October 23, 2014

When I was young, my mom always made our marinara from scratch. Truthfully, she made just about everything from scratch – and I just grew up thinking that was normal. I didn’t really realize that marinara was readily available in a jar until I was older. And so, I’ve always preferred the taste of the fresher stuff. We had an abundance of tomatoes during our …

A New Twist on Ratatouille

Cate Mezyk - September 23, 2014

I have so many veggies from my CSA right now! Our family is loving the abundance, but there are also a couple of drawbacks to it. One, I’m running out of ways to cook squash. My family might throw their plates at me if I serve them up another round of roasted zucchini, and there are only so many delicious gluten free cookies I can …

Wild About the World’s Easiest Recipe!

pumpkin muffins

Years ago, I was in a playgroup with my oldest daughter, Adaline.  And I will never be the same… well, that’s a bit dramatic… at least my girls’ snack-life will never be the same. We were hooked.  Hooked on the easiest recipe that has ever been.  So easy and delicious that you won’t believe it til you try it. Here at Wild Ruffle, we are not only …
