Strawberry Lime Popsicles

For years the only Sonic was almost 2 hours away from my house but they constantly aired commercials for their delicious treats on our local channels. I think it was an evil marketing ploy to convince me to spend 4 hours in the car just to enjoy a limeade. Unfortunately […]

Caprese Skewers

When I was thinking of appetizers for the bingo party, I knew I wanted to do something light and summery and also something that was easy to eat. Most of the other appetizers and items we were serving were on the heavier side. The first time I had caprese salad […]

SRC: Peach Granola Muffins

Okay, I lied. To myself. I intended that the Peach & Strawberry Breakfast Braid would be the last peach-related item I made for this summer, but then I received my Secret Recipe Club assignment and saw that our posting day is Labor Day, which I consider the final good-bye to […]

Peach & Strawberry Breakfast Braid

It doesn’t happen very often but sometimes I just get bored of eating muffins for breakfast. Its still way too hot to switch to oatmeal and I haven’t been in a granola mood lately. Since I eat breakfast at work, this limits my options quite a bit. I was flipping […]

Coleslaw

For years I refused to try ever try coleslaw just because it is typically made with mayonnaise. If I haven’t mentioned it before, I am not a big mayonnaise fan. I can handle mayo in small doses, like mixed into tuna salad or lightly spread on a steak sub sandwich, […]

Gouda Bacon Cheeseburgers

I’m probably the least sexist person I know, but while making this burger I immediately thought of it as a ‘man’s burger’. Its big, hearty, cheesy, covered in bacon, smothered in onions and extremely messy. Which is also how I think most burgers should be, so that’s not saying too […]

Cucumber and Tomato Salad

Last Friday I shared the delicious Pot Roast Sliders recipe I made for the recipe swap. After letting Tom pick out the slider recipe, I clicked through the side dishes and salads on Jaida’s blog to figure out something to make with them. This recipe jumped out at me immediately. […]

Peach Lemonade

August is almost over which means peach season is quickly fading away. While you can still easily find peaches through most of September, its not the best time for them so I usually rush in some last minute peach recipes in the beginning of September and then save the rest […]

Recipe Swap: Pot Roast Sliders

For this blogger’s choice recipe swap, I decided I wanted no part in choosing the recipe. I wrote down some things that I thought Tom would like and handed it to him, telling him it was completely his choice. Jaida has pretty similar tastes to Tom and I so knew […]

Grilled Steak with Herb Salsa Verde

Not too long ago we had a one-day break from the oppressive humidity and immediately took advantage of it by using the grills outside of the apartment. While I do really appreciate how close they are, it really makes me dislike living on the third floor. There’s just something about […]
