improv cooking challenge: cheeseburger pizza

The ingredient’s for August’s Improv Cooking Challenge are ketchup and mustard. For months I have thought about this flavor combination and could not come up with anything interesting at all to make. The only recipes I could think of was meatloaf, which we’re not big fans of, or cheeseburgers, which […]

#FarmersMarketWeek: Peach, Zucchini and Onion Flatbread

Day 3 of #FarmersMarketWeek! Have you enjoyed the recipes I’ve shared with you so far? I have one more after this one, scheduled for Friday. You’ve also checked out what the other bloggers have made right? Everything looks so delicious! I had brought a thin-crust pizza dough to my aunts […]

#BakingBloggers: Ham and Cheddar Pretzel Calzones

The March theme for #BakingBloggers is calzones. I don’t think I ever ate a calzone until I met Tom. My mom never made them and if we ordered food out, it was either pizza or cheese steaks. Obviously, I’ve now had quite a few calzones over the past few years […]

#ImprovCookingChallenge: Philly Cheesesteak Twice Baked Potatoes

The theme for this month’s Improv Cooking Challenge is steak and potatoes and for some reason, those two ingredients really stumped me. We eat steak and potatoes pretty frequently, but that didn’t seem anywhere near creative enough to share with you. It took until the weekend before this recipe was […]

#FootballFoods: Cheeseburger Bombs

‘Tis the football season, which to me, means hearty appetizers, gooey dips and my husband yelling at the television. I’m not really a football person. I’m kind of Switzerland when it comes to the sport. Tom is from PA and a Steelers fan. But we live in Maryland, which is […]

Turkey Cranberry Cracker Bites

I’m terrible at eating on the weekends. During the week, I tend not to have a lot going on, but my weekends are always super busy. Even if it’s not running errands, there are recipes to make and blog, photographs to take and edit and now a house that never […]

#FabulousFallBounty: Prosciutto Wrapped Blue Cheese Pears

Disclaimer: I received complimentary products from the above mentioned sponsors in exchange for participating in this event.  I’ve learned to stop making really involved and filling appetizers for Thanksgiving because no one eats breakfast but comes over early and fills up on those and then doesn’t eat dinner. Since the […]

Chinese Pork Meatballs

Disclaimer: I received free products from Steviva in exchange for creating a recipe for the #Sweetenitup blogger challenge. All opinions are my own.  The smell of these meatballs is going to make your mouth water. Have you ever eaten Char Siu? It’s the Chinese version or barbecue made with pork […]
