Layered Mediterranean Dip


Last weekend, Ben’s parents came for a visit and I wanted to make a couple of healthier recipes for their enjoyment. Although I didn’t get a chance to make everything I planned, I did ensure that this hummus based dip hit the table, alongside a falafel dish.  I was waiting for their visit before trying […]

Potato, Gouda and Candied Bacon Pizza


Wow, it’s been a whirlwind of a week here at our home, and I’m going to leave you this weekend with a whirlwind of a recipe!  My friend, Jamie, over at Sweet Tea & Taters (don’t you love that catchy title?) shared this pizza recently and I bookmarked it right away.  Honestly, she had me […]

Milkaholic Baby Shower


Last August (yes, that was over 6 months ago), I threw two baby showers that I haven’t had the chance to share with you yet.  I planned on giving you a recap in September, but then Labor Day happened, traveling happened, Thanksgiving happened, Christmas happened, and finally, moving to Mississippi happened.  Why the delay after […]

Classic Egg Salad Sandwich


This is one of my favorite childhood sandwiches.  Although I had made egg salad sandwiches for Ben and I a few times in our *almost* seven years of marriage, I never followed a recipe and just mixed some boiled eggs with a dollop of mayo and a squirt of mustard.  I just threw the eggs […]

Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes


A-hem!  Can I have your attention please?  I am fixin’ to share with you (yes, I’m working on my southern drawl) one of my favorite new recipes, and you do not want to miss it.  You will be skeptical at first, but don’t write it off until you try it.  Really folks, this is legit. […]

Island Jerk Burgers with Zesty Lime Coleslaw


For the past year or so, I’ve had the privilege of testing recipes from Sargento, with the permission to share with you the ones that I end up loving (read: added to our household’s recipe pool).  This is how we came across our favorite burger and one of our best pizza combos. Recently, we tried […]

DIY Jerk Seasoning (Dry Spice Rub)


No, I’m not calling you names.  The term “jerk” here is a cooking method, such as rubbing meat with a dry rub and barbecuing over a wood fire.  Recently, we tried a new recipe using jerk seasoning.  I had none in my pantry.  But, instead of running to the store to buy it, I found […]

Grilled Pork Kebabs with Southeast Asian Marinade


It’s grilling season, folks, and I can’t be more excited!  Who am I kidding?  It’s grilling season year-round here.  I guess I’m just more excited now because I know more of you can share in this enjoyment with me!  😉 Using the grill means fewer nights of cooking inside…which ultimately leads to less clean up […]

Chocolate Chip Hot Cross Buns


“Hot cross buns! Hot cross buns! One ‘a penny, two ‘a penny, Hot cross buns!” Was that the first song you learned on your musical instrument?  Unless you’re a natural Bach or Beethoven, then it probably was.  Now that the song’s stuck in your head, let’s talk about these sweet little pillows of heaven. Hot […]

Italian Easter Bread


Easter is here!  Now that Ben and I have our own family, we are excited to start our own holiday traditions.  This bread made its mark with us this week, and I won’t be surprised if we continue making it every year for Easter now.  When I first saw this, I was very intrigued by […]

Roman Chicken Pizza


There is this amazing lady we got to know during our 1 1/2 years in California, who inspires me on so many levels.  She is a loving mother, a loyal friend, a devoted worker, a faithful follower of Christ, and an outstanding cook!  Right before we moved, she made an Italian chicken dish for us […]
