Chicken Ranch Pizza

6196449236_683ae31d68

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 […]

6190420882_4c775e316e

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 + a Smucker’s Giveaway! (CLOSED)

6187965042_5b58850d53

This summer, our friends at Smucker’s invited me to create a recipe and share a giveaway with my readers in order to celebrate National Ice Cream month.  You know how much I love National Ice Cream Month, but unfortunately my calendar was full back then.  Even-so, there was no way I was going to completely […]

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

6171468318_d3468331b6

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

6168097359_3dc8d10439

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

6148092285_f5c8173f56

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

6148032655_6d433743a4

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

6146400142_b98466bae4

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

6139008763_4c647dcdeb

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?

6135911589_e19c4a8f43

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

5952081676_d74bcf868a

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)

6126213356_0677416b46

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

6122958840_cdeee0d334

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 […]
