Prosciutto Paninis

One of the first things I noticed when moving into our apartment was a little Italian place in nearby. The first time we checked out their food is when Tom’s parents were visiting. They arrived late and Tom and his dad got to work on hanging the ceiling fan, so […]

Berry White Popsicles

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! I’ve wanted to make my own frozen creations for quite some time now. While I really want to pull out the ice cream maker, there just isn’t quite enough room in the freezer to do so. Hopefully we’ll get a deep freezer soon and then I […]

Blueberry Coconut Muffins

Have you tried coconut water yet? I was never a big coconut person, it was a take-it-or-leave-it flavor for me until one day Tom and I were walking around Costco and they were giving out samples of coconut water. It was only a few days earlier I had overheard someone […]

Spicy Basil Chicken

Do you know how a recipe must be really good? When you star it in your Google Reader three times because three separate bloggers that you follow all made the recipe. I have a bad habit of doing that. Sometimes when I search through my starred recipes I realize I […]

Quinoa-Panko Crusted Chicken Tenders

I like our new apartment. I really do. It’s near work, tons of restaurants, great grocery stores, incredible amounts of shopping, my family, friends… There is a park is walking distance. We’re practically on the water. But there is just one tiny thing I can’t adjust to. The damn gas […]

Its Story Time with the Cookaholic Wife! Come grab a comfy piece of carpet or computer chair and let me share this one with you. We need to go back almost three decades to the year 1987. For those of you youngin’s, this is back when MTV actually played music […]

Brown Sugar and Mountain Dew Ham

Sometime way before I started this blog, I was tired of making chicken for dinner and picked up a precooked ham one evening. I had no idea how I was going to make it until I started looking around in the pantry and my eyes landed on brown sugar and […]

Recipe Swap: Shrimp Scampi

Recipe swap time again! The category for this swap was Celebrity recipes. It was actually pretty hard for me to pick out a recipe to submit. I didn’t realize that I rarely blog any recipes made by celebrities anymore. Luckily though, I do have a few on here. For this […]

Improv Challenge: Peanut Butter & Jelly Heart Cookies

Peanut butter and jelly. What in the world other than a sandwich am I supposed to make with that? That was my first thought after reading the Improv Challenge ingredients for April. Usually I’m all for thinking outside of the box and trying to create something that no one else […]

Cake Batter Doughnuts

After making the cake batter pudding cookies and the cake batter milkshake, I had a problem. There was still yellow cake mix left over. I know, I know, what a horrible problem to have! However, since I’m assuming everyone else who made a cake batter recipe also ran into this […]
