Recipe Swap: Peanut Butter Cups

The recipe swap for this month is holiday treats! While you can obviously make cookies or other desserts throughout the year, its just different to me to make them around the holidays. Maybe its being able to look a the pretty decorations or the tree while the cookies are baking […]

Plain Oatmeal Cookies

I’m an oatmeal cookie naturalist. There is absolutely no reason to add raisins, chocolate or anything else you can think of to an oatmeal cookie. It’s quite delicious on its own. Luckily for me, Tom agrees. At the absolute most, I guess I could understand adding honey or cinnamon to […]

27 Things About Me

When I’m reading someone’s blog, I always like the little stories or comments they include about their life. I’m a naturally nosy person and like to know about people without outright asking them. Those little stories and comments satisfy my inner nosiness. Please tell me I’m not alone in this. […]

Philly Cheesesteak Spring Rolls

A couple of days ago on a message board I read quite frequently, someone mentioned that they were having Philly Cheesesteak Spring Rolls as appetizers for their wedding. Usually I’m not a huge fan of anything that needs to be fried, but my love of egg rolls and cheesesteaks won […]

Secret Recipe Club: Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuits

Whew! I sure did cut it close with getting this recipe done in time! I attempted to make it last weekend, figuring they were calling for snow (grrr!) but right in the middle of making it, the power went out for 5 HOURS! Of course I used the last of […]

Maryland Crab Soup

Unless you live under a rock, you know that Maryland is known for steamed crabs. And what is one to do when they have leftover crabs and no one to eat them? Make crab soup, obviously! Now there is one time when you absolutely can not make crab soup. Head […]

Secret Recipe Club: Buttermilk Biscuits

I have to admit, with my limited amount of time to spend in the kitchen due to my college classes, I was a bit hesitant to participate in the October Secret Recipe Swap. I’d glad to say that my need to make new recipes won out against my limited amount […]

Peach BBQ Sauce

For the Labor Day weekend, I used up some of my vacation time and went to visit my aunt who lives at the beach in Delaware. Completely unable to not cook for 5 whole days, I took it upon myself to come up with a sauce for the pulled pork […]

Recipe Swap: Tailgate Sliders

I have a confession. For the longest time I preferred my burger to come with the standard ketchup-mustard-pickles-onions get up that McDonald’s offers. If I was eating at Wendy’s I could stand the mayo, lettuce and tomato but only because they were surrounded by cheese, bacon and a burger. Only […]

Chicken and Pasta with Asiago Cream Sauce

As I mentioned in a previous post, Tom and I are cheese and cracker type of people and we quickly found out that asiago cheese just isn’t a cheese we’re willing to eat alone on a cracker. I didn’t want to throw away the cheese so I began searching for […]
