Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

Mint Chocolate Cupcakes are super tasty cupcakes, where the cupcake is infused with fresh mint. Then, they’re topped with a rich chocolate buttercream frosting. I love fresh mint. I’ve grown it (or at least tried to) for the past couple of years now. It’s done moderately well, but I think I […]

Cranberry Pecan Stuffing

I know that stuffing made using cranberries, walnuts, pecans, sausage, oysters, etc. are pretty popular, but I’ve never had any type of stuffing other than ones very similar to the Old Fashioned Celery and Onion Stuffing I shared with you on Monday. Stuffing is simple – bread, celery, onions, stock, […]

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 […]

Individual Beef Wellingtons

One of my biggest regrets from my trip to Vegas last month is that I wasn’t starving when we went to Hell’s Kitchen. The food was just so incredible that I wanted to eat more of it, but I was so stuffed, it just wasn’t going to happen. Then Tom […]

#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 […]

Beef Stew Biscuit Cups

I had a can of Pillsbury biscuits sitting in the fridge for two weeks. My initial plan for them did not turn out and I knew I needed to empty the fridge out as much as possible before Thanksgiving to make room for everything else. A quick review of my […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
