The MN Table

Cate Mezyk - January 21, 2016

I love to cook. But honestly, it’s been getting harder lately. It’s important to me to give my family healthy options, no matter how busy we are. It’s also important to me to sit down as a family together and eat as a unit. But with activities that keep us out until 7:10 pm or later 4 nights a week… Well, let’s just say everybody is …

Tammy Hiveley - August 6, 2015

You can deny it all you want but chocolate is always a pleasure. Always. Whether you’re 5 or 85, you look forward to popping that satisfying rich milk chocolate treat into your mouth and feel the goodness melt in your mouth. It’s no wonder my three girls and I pick M&M’S® Crispy for our girls-day-out afternoon treat! After a long day of Back-To-School shopping, this is the right answer to …

Cate Mezyk - June 16, 2015

We LOVE to entertain here at Wild Ruffle! Both of us enjoy having our homes filled with friends and family, and often host get togethers. But entertaining can be really stressful for a lot of people!

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

Tammy Hiveley - January 13, 2015

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 …

Hosting Made Easy

Cate Mezyk - November 20, 2014

This Thanksgiving is a big one for both of the Wild Ruffle girls, as we’ll each be hosting in our homes for the first time!

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 …
