Improv Cooking Challenge: Balsamic Berry Crostini

Many, many years ago I found out that putting balsamic vinegar on berries brought out their sweetness. It was something I initially would have never believed or tried, but I’m so glad that I did. I love how the tart vinegar pairs with the sweet berries and while I don’t […]

Improv Cooking Challenge: Sweet and Spicy Grilled Cheese

I feel like no matter how old you are, you simply can’t go wrong with a grilled cheese sandwich, which is why I decided to make one for the Improv Cooking Challenge this month. The two ingredients were jalapenos and cheese. Which are also two of my favorite pairings. Needless […]

Improv Cooking Challenge: Cookies and Cream Poke Cake

Happy Thursday! Late last month the participants of the Improv Cooking Challenge and I decided to make a change to our posting date. Many other blogging events occur on the third Thursday of the month, so we voted and decided to move up our posting date by one week. Now […]

#ImprovCooking: Chocolate Chile Brownies

I hope you had a great Valentine’s day. What did you have to eat? Tom and I kept it simple around here and decided we’d go out some other weekend that’s less crowded and get sushi. I guess this is what 6 years of marriage does to you lol. 😏 […]

#ImprovCookingChallenge: Hot Toddy

#ImprovCooking Challenge: Thai Naan Pizza

October’s ingredients for the Improv Cooking Challenge are carrots and curry. At first this really threw me because I am not at all familiar with curry. I’ve tried yellow curries and cooking with curry powder and as much as I’d like to like it, the food just doesn’t agree with […]

Improv Challenge: Strawberry Nutella Poptarts

I giggled when I read the two ingredients for this month’s Improv challenge: hearts and flours. I can’t help it, I’m easily amused by puns. In case you don’t know yet, the Improv Challenge is a challenge organized by Kristin of Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. There are two […]

Improv Challenge: Rocky Road Ice Cream

Last month I had an idea for the Improv Challenge ingredients but silly me waited until the last minute and the recipe just did not turn out so I sadly didn’t get to participate for a month. Which left me too much time to contemplate whether this was the best […]
