Multi-Colored Tomato Sauce


Forgive me.  I lied.  This was supposed to be posted yesterday, as promised.  Well, I guess I didn’t lie, I just didn’t follow through.  Yesterday ended up busy, so busy got in the way. This is the sauce I served with the Feta Stuffed Mushrooms.  I love tomatoes, so pairing this with the mushrooms was […]

Feta Stuffed Mushrooms


Before I even had this food blog, I made stuffed mushrooms that pretty much resembled the kind you can buy at your favorite chain restaurant.  You know, the kind that has some crumbled meat, cheese and maybe even breadcrumbs for the filling?  They were good, but for some reason I never made them again.  I […]

Oven-Baked Tortilla Española


I decided to share this the recipe from my Spanish Tapas party first, because I think it would be a great appetizer for your Super Bowl party.  Instead of limiting yourself to only serving the usual chips and salsa, buffalo wings, meatballs, etc., you can mix things up a bit and delight your guests with […]

Starbucks Coffee Giveaway! – CLOSED


As the title of this blog insinuates, I thrive on ways to save money.  So, when Starbucks contacted me about this giveaway and explained how I can save money by buying their newly sized store-packaged coffee rather than purchasing by the cup, I immediately jumped on board.  I love Starbucks coffee, but usually only stop […]

Loaded Baked Potato Soup


<Photo and title updated 10/12/10> During maternity leave, a friend made us baked potato soup that lasted us a few meals. It was so good and I wanted to get the recipe from her, however, at the moment I wanted to make it I didn’t have time to contact her for her recipe, so I […]

Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: Celebrating 30 Years, Spanish Tapas Style!


One of my best friends, Stephanie, turned 30 this month, so I wanted to throw her a surprise birthday party with a few of our girlfriends.  Here is a little information about Stephanie: Her family heritage is Spanish, she insists on my son calling her his “tía”, she is already teaching him the Spanish language […]

Croissant Panini


A few months ago I was watching one of Giada’s shows on the Food Network and she made Croissant Panini.  She created such a tempting variation, loaded with two of my favorite types of cheese, so I knew I had to give it a try.  I quickly marked down the ingredients and threw it with […]

Cajun Chicken Pasta


I love trying different pasta dishes.  This Cajun Chicken Pasta is probably one of my favorites.  The Cajun spice adds just the right amount of heat without drowning out the rest of the flavors.  And, the colors of the peppers create an alluring appearance.  You can use whatever colors of bell peppers you like.  However, […]

Ham & Cheese Pretzel Bites


For New Year’s Eve, I wanted to make an easy appetizer that was at least a little impressive.  These pretzel bites were perfect, except that I poorly planned my timing so that I was making them as our guests arrived.  Little did I anticipate that our guests were going to finish making some of their […]

Italian Stuffed Shells


Since Judah was born (now a month ago) it has been hard to get to the grocery store regularly, or to even find time to plan our meals.  For the first 2 1/2 weeks we were overjoyed with dinner supplied to us every night from friends at church, but now it’s back to reality.  Often […]

How to Seed a Pomegranate


Pomegranate seeds and its juice has taken a rise in popularity lately, mainly because of their nutritional value (good source of vitamins B and C).  But, its sweet, juicy taste is also what I desire.  The seeds have been used to top a salad, garnish a cocktail, or squeeze into juice.  There are many other […]
