#CookoutWeek: Sweet and Spicy Hawaiian Chicken Skewers

I’m very sad to say that #CookoutWeek is over for me. The event officially ends tomorrow, so you’ll still have a variety of great recipes to drool over, but this is the last one for me. This is also the first time that I didn’t make a dessert for #CookoutWeek. […]

#FoodieExtravaganza: Strawberry Avocado Salad

Did you know that June is National Fruits and Vegetables month? I didn’t, until I saw the theme for this month’s Foodie Extravaganza. But it makes sense, the farmers markets and grocery stores are full of fresh produce. And most importantly, the price of strawberries and watermelon has finally went […]

Thanksgiving Leftover Shepherd’s Pie

Thanksgiving leftovers. Either you have tons of them and your fridge is just as full as it was on the holiday or you have none at all and are kind of sad that you can’t at least make yourself a sandwich with the leftover turkey. I ended up with a […]

Butternut Squash, Sausage and Apple Hash

I know that the last day of each season occurs quarterly, typically on the 21st of a month, but my brain generates its own days for the last day of summer, last day of fall and last day of winter. There are three more weeks until fall ends, but typically […]

Stuffed Zucchini

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 […]

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 […]
