Chicken Ranch Pizza


Sunny and windy.  Those are the two adjectives that describe my weather just about every day.  One is welcomed, the other is loathed, although our patio furniture suffers from both.  The extreme wind keeps us from playing outdoors, while the sun shining through my windows makes this bearable. While staying indoors because of the high […]

Guest Post: Peek-a-boo Ghost Cookies by SweetSugarBelle


Today is an exciting day for me, because one of my most talented and hilarious food blogging friends is guest posting!  Callye, known in the foodie world as SweetSugarBelle, is who I like to title the Cookie Decorating Queen.  If you haven’t run across her blog yet, head on over there now and say “hello!” […]

Cookie Dough Eggrolls


Egg-less chocolate chip cookie dough quickly fried in an eggroll wrapper then served warm with ice cream and chocolate syrup. I’ve been making this dessert for the last five to six years, yet never had the opportunity to post the recipe on here.  Inspired by a small local bistro in a village of Nashville, TN, […]

Copycat Chick-fil-A Chicken Nuggets


I’m sitting here, staring at my screen, trying to figure out how to tell you that these little bites are the closest I’ve come to finding a replica of Chick-fil-A’s chicken nuggets.  These are very close and I am extremely excited to know that leftovers are still in my freezer, ready to be enjoyed at […]

Pumpkin Spice Syrup for Hot and Cold Coffee or Non-Coffee Drinks


Do I really have to type up a description for this one after tagging it with such a long title?  It’s that time of year again when everyone is talking about the Pumpkin Spice Latte.  If I’m not the only food blog you read (at least I’m hoping you’ve discovered all of those other fabulous […]

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


I made these cookies the other day when searching for a recipe that would remind me of fall (amid our 90-degree temperatures) and included ingredients I already had on hand.  When Mrs. M.O.B. declared that these cookies taste just like autumn, I took her words to heart and chose to make them.  I was hesitant […]

Southern Sweet Tea


If you grew up anywhere besides the South, you might have been taught that iced tea is seasonal…only for the summer months.  Your mom probably brewed it in a pitcher bathing in the hot sun on your back porch, then served it unsweetened.  I remember my mom doing this, and I loved it. It wasn’t […]

Balsamic Strawberry Pizza with Chicken, Sweet Onion and Applewood Smoked Bacon


While everyone is talking about all things pumpkin and anticipating fall, here I am posting a recipe for a strawberry pizza.  It’s my second year experiencing a southern California “change of seasons” and quite frankly, it still feels like summer.  This is okay with me, because technically is still is summer.  But, I do miss […]

Green Monster Smoothies


Interesting title, huh?  This is part of Judah’s breakfast practically every morning.  Judah is a great eater, but I have found it difficult to get enough green veggies into him each day.  He loves carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, etc.  But, when it comes to the leafy greens, I just can’t figure him out. It was […]

Fish Tacos


Have you heard of Wahoo’s Fish Tacos?  It’s a fast food chain with locations in Hawaii, California, Colorado and Texas boasting an eclectic Mexican/Brazilian/Asian menu with a surfer-dude vibe.  Ben fell in love with the place during his college years and kept telling me about it.  Once we moved to California together, he finally wouldn’t […]

Where Were You That September Day?


I remember.  I was in college, prepping for an Accounting exam that morning.  One of my suite-mates came out of her room and told us to turn on the TV.  We were shocked, devastated, scared, confused.  Class wasn’t canceled.  I walked out of my dorm room and across the Bison Square, with the eerie yet […]

Havarti and Almond Turkey Burgers


When most think of tailgating food, the thought of a turkey burger does not pop up, especially with men.  Nonetheless, when I started creating a new cheeseburger recipe for the tailgating season, I could not get turkey out of my head!  So, I followed my instinct and went with it. My husband and I are […]

Back to School Giveaway: Peeled Snacks (CLOSED)


My little sister, Rachelle, returned back to school yesterday.  She’s now a senior in high school.  I-can’t-believe-it!  Even though she is 14 years younger than me and lives on the other side of the country, we still have a close relationship along with my other sister who is 2 years older than me (yes, poor […]

Dulce de Leche Sandwich Cookies


Are you like me?  When asked to bring a dish to a get-together, and the host doesn’t request something specific, do you try with all of your might to pick a recipe that goes along with the theme of the rest of the dinner, no matter if a theme is intended?  Even when you really […]
