Peach Lemonade

August is almost over which means peach season is quickly fading away. While you can still easily find peaches through most of September, its not the best time for them so I usually rush in some last minute peach recipes in the beginning of September and then save the rest […]

Recipe Swap: Pot Roast Sliders

For this blogger’s choice recipe swap, I decided I wanted no part in choosing the recipe. I wrote down some things that I thought Tom would like and handed it to him, telling him it was completely his choice. Jaida has pretty similar tastes to Tom and I so knew […]

Grilled Steak with Herb Salsa Verde

Not too long ago we had a one-day break from the oppressive humidity and immediately took advantage of it by using the grills outside of the apartment. While I do really appreciate how close they are, it really makes me dislike living on the third floor. There’s just something about […]

Cream of Crab Soup

There are two soups that you can find in just about any Maryland restaurant. Maryland Crab, a tomato based vegetable soup with crab meat and heavy Old Bay seasoning to make it spicy, and Cream of Crab, a cream/milk based soup with potatoes, celery and crab meat with a much […]

Quinoa Corn Salad

It was the end of the week and I realized I didn’t have a side dish planned for dinner. A quick look in the fridge informed me that we had about 1 1/2 cups of corn kernels from corn on the cob and a leftover red pepper. I first thought […]

Some ice cream recipes, like the s’mores one leaves you with A LOT of egg whites. I had no idea what to do with EIGHT egg whites. I first thought of an omelet, but it was the middle of the afternoon and I wasn’t hungry for an omelet and those […]

Recipe Swap: Shrimp Po Boy Sandwiches

Sometimes I wonder if there is a recipe god of coincidence. I’ve had some shrimp in the freezer for a while now and every recipe I plan to make with them just hadn’t happened. I went searching through my binders to find something and found a recipe for Shrimp Po’ […]

Peach Raspberry Pie

As much as I hate to rush summer along, I am always impatient for August to come along so peaches are in season, plentiful and super cheap. Since May or so I’ve marked the peach recipes in my to-make binder so I could easily find them come August. Ironically this […]

Margherita Pizza

I am sad to admit that I only had fresh mozzarella cheese for the first time last year. Yes, I spent 26 years of my life eating the shredded mozzarella cheese you get in a bag. I can also admit it was quite some time before I realized that the […]
