Rosemary Cheddar Pumpkin Rolls #PumpkinWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with PumpkinWeek . I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the PumpkinWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone. One of my favorite things about pumpkin is that it can be used in sweet or savory dishes. I may […]

#CookoutWeek: Heirloom Tomato Salad

Even though there is an abundance of vegetables available all summer, I always feel like I’m struggling to come up with side dishes to have. This is mainly because my husband doesn’t like 99% of vegetables. He’d be completely content to eat corn on the cob all summer and I […]

#ImprovCooking: Lemon Rosemary Lentil Soup

The Improv Cooking Challenge is still going strong! We have an entire year of combinations dedicated to share with you! The theme for January is lemon and rosemary. I was a little bit worried as to whether I could find a recipe that meets the strict requirements of the new […]

Caprese Skewers

When I was thinking of appetizers for the bingo party, I knew I wanted to do something light and summery and also something that was easy to eat. Most of the other appetizers and items we were serving were on the heavier side. The first time I had caprese salad […]

Cheddar-Chive Twice-Baked Potatoes

Why bake a potato once when you can bake it twice? For years I never understood why people would spend the time to make a potato more than once when a baked potato was perfectly good all on its own. And then I had a twice baked potato filled with […]

Improv Challenge: Smoky Corn Salad

Corn and butter. Butter and corn. There’s got to be a couple hundred different recipes you can make with those two ingredients when you expand your mind past just frozen corn or corn on the cob and include things like cornmeal or butter flavoring. The possibilities are endless. Which is […]

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 […]
