Sriracha Burgers

These burgers are pretty popular in the blog world and after using Sriracha in another recipe, I knew I needed to make them soon. If you don’t like spicy foods, I’d stay away from this recipe. 🙂 Tom and I both thought these burgers were absolutely delicious! We used regular […]

Hurricane Cookies: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip

It’s been an interesting couple of days for the east coast. Mineral, Virginia experienced a 5.8 magnitude earthquake which was felt from North Carolina to New York. We definitely felt it here and it took a few minutes for us to realize exactly what it was. It’s not like Maryland […]
