Vanilla-Mint Whiskey Sweet Tea

When I first started drinking, I stick to the vodkas and rums to make simple mixed drinks. Eventually that branched out into drinking wine which then somehow turned into drinking beer. And now I tend to reach for a bottle of beer before a bottle of wine, but when I […]

Kale BLT Salad

BLT sandwiches are hands-down one of my favorite sandwiches, ever. You just can’t go wrong with crispy, salty bacon, crunchy fresh lettuce and that fresh acidic taste of a ripe tomato. The combination is great on bread of course, but can also be turned into a lettuce wrap or even […]

Asparagus and Gruyere Tart

I’ve had this recipe saved to make for I don’t even know how long. Tom is not a big fan of asparagus so I rarely get to try out new recipes with asparagus as the star unless it’s a holiday, we’re having people over, or something I can make for […]

What’s Baking: Crustless Caprese Quiche

Quiche is a very hit or miss recipe for me. Either I like it and I want to devour the entire plate of it, or I don’t like it at all. I blame this entirely on the eggs, which is unfortunately a necessary ingredient in making quiche. I don’t like […]

Broccoli Bacon Salad

I’ve always loved salad. Even as a kid, I was thrilled to have a big old pile of lettuce with carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers and ranch dressing. As I got older, I began to branch out and add additional things to my salad and change up the type of dressing I […]

Cardamom Glazed Carrots

Cardamom is probably one of my favorite spices. I absolutely love the smell of it, with its slightly hints or orange and I really, really wish that they would make it into a candle or even a Scentsy cube. But until then, I’ll just have to continue cooking with it […]

Oreo Easter Bark

As a blogger, I prefer for Easter to be in early April. I need enough time to finish making and sharing my St. Patrick’s Day recipes with you and get the Easter ones made before the holiday rolls around, but preferably not too late into April or then I feel […]

Parmesan Parsley Roasted Potatoes

For as much as I cook, I feel like the one thing that I consistently struggle with is a serving a variety of side dishes with our dinners each night. It doesn’t help that Tom doesn’t like most vegetables and isn’t a big fan of rice, which really limits my […]

Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Casserole

On the weekends, Tom and I wake up at completely different times. I have the inability to sleep past 8 am no matter what happens and he’s content to sleep until noon. So needless to say, breakfast doesn’t happen very often around here unless it’s me just making something for […]

SRC: Vanilla Dutch Baby

I can’t believe it’s time for another reveal day of the Secret Recipe Club. I feel like I was just sharing my last recipe with you! This month I was assigned to ButterYum which is written by Patricia. I love her story! In her About section, she says that she […]
