Summer Macaroni Salad

Summer Macaroni Salad

I’m excited to let you all know issue 8 of Holl & Lane Magazine is live! The issue features my families summer macaroni salad recipe. This macaroni salad was a stable summer dish in my house growing up. The simple, but surprising, combination of fresh dill, peas, gherkin pickles and cheddar cheese compliment each other extremely well. If you happen to have an abundance of cucumbers around feel free to add them in!

There is something extremely refreshing about cold macaroni salads in the summer. This is the perfect addition to a summer BBQ or serve with grilled chicken and a spinach salad.

Cinnamon Chocolate Cake (GF)


Last Friday my first recipe contribution was featured in Holl & Lane Magazine (Issue 5)! Holl & Lane is a digital magazine focusing on “telling the stories that make up our lives.” They cover many aspects of a woman’s life: entertainment, style and beauty, food and fitness, small business, travel, DIY, interior design, travel, family, and most importantly, life stories! The message at Holl & Lane is a simple one: “Each time you open up and share a part of your story, you help someone else feel less alone.”

I am honored to be a part of their mission!

This cinnamon chocolate cake was a staple in my house growing up. I requested it every year for my birthday or anytime I could convince my mom to bake it.

I decided to tweak the original recipe to make the cake gluten-free and the frosting dairy-free. It was a success at our joint birthday celebration in September. Each issue is $2.99 (or $7.99 for a 6 month subscription) but you’ll receive %25 off with the code, Issue5Friends&Family. Here is the direct link to purchase.
