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 […]

Happy New Year!  Tomorrow we will bring in the new year with a 4-week old baby and a lot to be thankful for.  Tonight, we will celebrate the end of the year with this Pomegranate Champagne and some other snacks.  This particular drink adds a bit of festivity to your party from the gorgeous ruby […]

Pumpkin Yeast Bread


Pumpkin Yeast Bread was something I had on my list of recipes to try for a long time. My main motivation was to turn it into pumpkin bread french toast, which is one of my favorite dishes at a local breakfast cafe.  I originally had a different source/recipe bookmarked, but then saw this one on […]

Banana Cake


Since family was in town to visit our little Judah, we were able to celebrate my dad’s birthday together last Saturday.  Because of Judah’s arrival, I was not able to get out and buy a gift, so instead I made him his favorite cake with a twist and bought him some eggnog from our local […]

Christmas Basket Ideas


Yes, I’m still on a blogging hiatus as I continue to spend time with my new little guy.  (He’s getting cuter every day and I didn’t think it was possible!)  But, I wanted to remind you as you are probably using this weekend and the next to make your holiday baskets, to make sure you […]
