Pasta Fagioli

Seriously. This recipe is going around.  It’s been around, come around and back again.  So, I knew it had to be good after seeing it pop up on about a million, or ba-jillion, food blogs.  And, after trying it, I now understand why.  It’s such a perfect meal!  We had our friends over for dinner […]

Potato Slabs

The last of my posts for Super Bowl 2009.  I saw this idea on Amber’s Delectable Delights.  The thought of another easy recipe was definitely appealing, so I added it to my menu list right away.  These pretty much have the same taste as Potato Skins, but not as much work since you do not […]

Quick Fix: Buffalo Chicken Mini Sandwiches

This was the main plate I served at our Super Bowl party last Sunday.  I made these sandwiches into mini-sandwiches to multiply the serving size, and it worked out great!  With all of the other food served, mini-sandwiches were the perfect portion size.  These were a hit!  Very tasty and I love the buffalo hot […]

Blog Awards

It is fun to receive these ‘unofficial’ blog awards from fellow bloggers, because it assures me that my time spent taking photos of my food and risking a cold meal is totally worth it because YOU enjoy reading my blog!  I received these three awards recently and wanted to take some time to pass them […]

Amano Chocolate – Jembrana

I was lucky enough to be one of the very few to sample this new chocolate from Amano.  Months ago I sampled chocolate from there that was not my favorite, so was thrilled to have another chance to try a different flavor from a different region.  This Jembrana chocolate is made up of cocoa beans […]

Posh Piggies

I fell in love with these right when I saw them on Tastespotting.  It’s another easy party dish that I made for our Super Bowl party.  The fun thing is, you can mix it up and use different cookie cutter shapes depending on your theme.  I just used the star cutter because I just thought […]

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cookie Brownies

Bakerella is a genius, even if her genius ideas come from Betty Crocker, like this one. Allow me to continue praising Bakerella while I’m on the subject. If you haven’t checked out her website, you must now.  She’s so witty and creative with anything she puts together in the kitchen.  And, her food photos?…don’t even […]

Oven Baked French Fries

The original recipe is actually Baked Meyer Lemon Fries, but I love french fries so much that I usually can’t wait long enough for the extra step in mixing the extra seasonings!  I’m sure it’s worth the short wait, but once I take the fries out of the oven and smell their tempting deliciousness, it’s […]

Prosciutto Mozzarella Pinwheels

Even though this is listed as a “kids recipe” in Giada de Laurentiis’ book “New Italian Favorites”, I thought it was a great weeknight meal for me and Ben.  Last week was a successful meal planning week and this was one of those dinners.  Ben loved this, and I ate it for lunch the next […]
