Secret Recipe Club: Croquembouche

Last month was my first time participating in the Secret Recipe Club. I had a great time going through the recipes on the blog I was assigned to choose one so I knew I definitely wanted to participate again. This month, I the blog I was assigned is Eggs, Cream […]

Corn and Black Bean Burgers

In my attempts to make healthier foods, I came across this recipe in Cooking Light. I had a pretty good feeling that Tom wouldn’t like it at all, but while he’s still agreeing to try different foods without question, I figured I’d make it. I thought the garlic and cayenne […]

Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Confession: I’ve never made a cake from scratch before. Growing up, cake came from a box except for the special occasion cheesecake. I have no idea why I’ve waited so long to make a cake from scratch. Not only is today Mother’s Day but its also Tom’s birthday. His favorite […]

Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus

Even though I knew that Tom and C won’t eat asparagus and I wasn’t sure if my cousin or her boyfriend would either, I really wanted to make this appetizer. I haven’t had prosciutto in forever! Almost every time I visit my aunt at her beach house in Delaware, she’ll […]

Sugared Asparagus

A couple of months ago I had a very vivid dream that I had just finished decorating my formal dining room in my house. This was pretty strange because I don’t have a formal dining room, let alone a house, the color scheme is not something I’d typically like, and […]

But then there is American cheese, Mozzarella, Colby, Monterrey, Swiss, Muenster, Parmesan, Provolone, Cheddar and the list goes on and on. I know most of those cheeses are […]

Barbecue Pulled Chicken – Crock Pot

I’ve had pulled pork sandwiches but I’ve never had a pulled chicken sandwich. Last year when I bought the 30 Day Shred Jillian Michaels DVD I was suckered into signing up to see what recipes she offered. I quickly found out that almost all of the recipes she recommended came […]

Apple Pie for One

Last week I was talking to a co-worker about how badly I wanted apple pie. I told her I didn’t want to make a whole pie and be the only one to eat it. She gave me a genius suggestion. Make the apple pie in a ramekin. Apple Pie for […]

Sangria Ham

I know its a bit late to post something that could be made on Christmas, but I’m still trying to catch up on all of the recipes I’d like to blog. The first time I made a ham for Christmas I saw a recipe that used sangria and thought that […]

2010 Recipe Review

As I skimmed through my Google Reader today looking for recipes, I realized that almost every blog I follow has done some type of recap for 2010. Since I learned a lot more about blogging and recipes in 2010 than 2009, I figured it was a good idea to hop […]
