#Brunchweek: Ham, Apple and Cheddar Melt

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of #BrunchWeek recipes.

Spiderweb Layered Taco Dip

For the Halloween party that we hosted, Tom and I went as the Doctor and Rose from Doctor Who. He had wanted to do this for a while now, so even though Rose is a blonde (and I was blonde for over a decade) I decided to go along with […]

Nichole’s Party Punch

I am a creature of habit when it comes to drinks. I drink coffee in the morning, water throughout the day and iced green tea at night. Sometimes, but not often, the coffee will be replaced for hot chocolate or the tea for lemonade or soda. It never occurs to […]

Prosciutto Pear Cups

Happy New Years Eve! Are you hosting or attending a party tonight and still in need of something to bring? These tasty little bites would be the perfect appetizers since they barely take any time at all to whip up and can be served warm or at room temperature. Prosciutto […]

Homemade Pizza Rolls

When I was adjusting the menu for the party I had at the end of September, I was trying to find quick appetizer-style recipes that would work well with the other things we were serving. I hopped onto my Pinterest account to see if I had anything worthwhile saved and […]

Are you still sick of zucchini? Almost everyone I know has an overabundance of zucchini in the summer either from their out of control garden or a CSA they participate in. I figured I’d wait a while before posting this recipe just in case you were one of those people […]

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, […]

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. […]

Margherita Pizza

I am sad to admit that I only had fresh mozzarella cheese for the first time last year. Yes, I spent 26 years of my life eating the shredded mozzarella cheese you get in a bag. I can also admit it was quite some time before I realized that the […]

Fried Sweet Corn with Basil Butter

As silly as it sounds, I would have never thought to fry corn. Since steamed, boiled, and grilled are the more common preparations, I tend to gravitate toward those. But when I saw this recipe as part of the July Improv Challenge, I knew I needed to try out frying […]
