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 […]

Drunken Cheesecake Brownies

In order to make the Irish Car Bomb Cheesecake Bites for St. Patrick’s Day, I needed to purchase some Bailey’s Irish Cream. Since I only needed a small amount of it, I opted to purchase the 4-pack of Bailey’s mini’s. I barely used one little bottle for that recipe so […]

San Marzano Spaghetti Sauce

Recently there has been a bunch of talk about how San Marzano tomatoes are the absolute best ones out there because they’re sweeter. I immediately assumed that it would be months before I was able to find San Marzano tomatoes on the shelves of the grocery stores. To my surprise, […]

Happy Birthday to Me: Cake Batter Milkshakes

At 1:04 in the afternoon today I will officially turn 27. I’m not sure why people keep asking me “how do you feel about that?” Uh, how I am supposed to feel about it? It’s not like there is some magical switch you can just hit and you stop aging. […]

Cake Batter Pudding Cookies

I remember the first time I ever visited a Coldstone Creamery and saw that they offered Cake Batter Ice Cream. At first I was indifferent, never being one to lick the bowl clean of cake batter (brownies are another story though) but one time Tom ordered it and let me […]

Crispy Parmesan Asparagus

When I was a kid the only two vegetables I would eat was corn and green beans. Occasionally my mom would try to add in a new vegetable, like asparagus and I wouldn’t touch it. Probably because asparagus from a can has got to be one of the grossest things […]

Gwumpki Soup

Galumpki. Golumpki. Golabki. Gwumpki. Spell check is having a field day with me. But apparently all of those spelling are correct if you’re talking about some ground beef being wrapped up in cabbage with a crushed/diced tomato sauce. When I came across this recipe in my reader, it was like […]
