Crab Feast! (Open-Face Crab and Artichoke Melts)

IMG_3728

We spent this weekend in Maryland, with Ben’s family. They decided to have a crab feast Saturday night. It was my first experience, and I’ve got to say, it was a lot of fun but I’d rather someone else pick through the crab for me. It can be pretty disgusting! The guys didn’t seem to […]

Dark Chocolate Chip Scones

Once again, we had company in town this past week, so I wanted to make something to have in the kitchen for breakfast besides cereal. Since we’ve had so many visitors this summer, we’ve been eating out often and spending a lot of money on activities. So, I wanted to find a recipe that was […]

Red Velvet Cupcake Pops

I saw these cupcake pops *months* ago on Bakerella’s blog, then saw them featured on Martha Stewart. Every weekend I said I would make these, and every weekend passed without making them. So, finally, this last weekend I had my chance. We had a garage sale, and I wanted to bake something to sell… so […]

Overnight BLT Salad

As you can tell by now, I like to make recipes that are very simple, fast, and include basic ingredients. You can’t really go more basic than a BLT. (Unless, of course, you have a famous “wish” sandwich I was introduced to during my college years… Basically two pieces of bread with mayo spread in […]

I received another surprise in the mail the other day from my friends at Foodbuzz. Ever since I signed up to be one of their Featured Publishers, I’ve received quite a few fun little perks. The first perk was a $250 check in the mail right after signing up! It was a surprise for us […]

Monday, I was sitting at my desk at work and thinking about my grocery list. When I grocery shop, I always go right after work because the Meijer store is right next door to my company and there is not one close to our house. I prefer Meijer for a few reasons: 1- My dad […]

Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes

We had game night Tuesday night, and I promised to make dessert. Since our friends were in town all weekend and left Monday morning, I was extremely exhausted and didnt’ really have time to make anything too difficult or involved. One of the blogs I frequent, Annie’s Eats, usually has some pretty quick and easy […]

Stuffin’ Egg Muffin

As I mentioned in the previous post, we had friends visiting from out of town this past weekend. I made the Daring Bakers danish bread for breakfast one morning, but we had a few more breakfasts to go! Well, lucky for me and our guests, I got an excellent recipe idea from one of my […]

Pastry Cream Printable Recipe 2 cups milk 1/4 cup white sugar 2 egg yolks 1 whole egg 1/4 cup cornstarch 1/3 cup white sugar 2 Tablespoons butter, cubed […]

This month’s Daring Bakers challenge was definitely a challenge for me. I’m in a hurry to get ready for church right now, but wanted to post the recipe, and photos will come later. Check out the Daring Bakers blogroll in the meantime for others’ awesome photos and ideas for fillings. **UPDATE** Okay, yes, it’s now […]
