#BakingBloggers: Slow Cooker Reese’s Cake

The theme for July’s #BakingBloggers was baking with small appliances. This is something I am completely unfamiliar with. I know people use their slow cookers and instant pots to make desserts, but I’d never even thought to try it. (Confession: my instant pot has only been used for hard boiled […]

#FoodieExtravaganza: Nashville Hot Chicken

The first time I ever heard of Nashville Hot Chicken, I was watching an episode of Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. The story supposedly goes that a married woman was tired of her husband being a womanizer and after a particularly late night of him running around on her, she decided to […]

#FestiveFoodies: Cherry Berry Buckle Cake

“Hmm.” Was the first thing I thought when I saw that Ellen of Family Around the Table had created a Festive Foodies event called Red, White and Blue. I had the same theme for the Improv Cooking Challenge last month and definitely struggled to find a recipe to make. You’d […]

#CookoutWeek: Garlic Butter Steak Foil Packets

Disclaimer: This recipe was created with product received from Chef Shamy as part of #CookoutWeek. All opinions are my own. You step outside into a warm summer night, a gentle breeze blowing that picks up the scent of charcoal from a lit grill, followed by the scent of garlic, vegetables […]

#CookoutWeek: Cherry Bourbon Slush

Has it been humid where you are? Usually in Maryland we have decent weather until early July where the temperatures are in the mid-eighties and the humidity is relatively low and then come mid-July, the humidity soars to the 90+% and it’s pretty miserable outside. Not so much this year. […]

Welcome to #CookoutWeek + Giveaway!

It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! That glorious week that happens once a summer where I join up with over 50 bloggers and we share all kinds of cookout style recipes with you. I’ve participated in this event for 2 (3?) years now and it’s definitely one of my […]
