Improv Cooking Challenge: Apple Honey Challah Bread

It’s apple season! I absolutely love baking with apples and have tons and tons of recipes to show for it, but that never means that I’m not looking for something new to make with them. A couple of years ago I created a list of recipes I wanted to make […]

Improv Cooking Challenge: Peach and Hatch Chile Quick Jam

As soon as I received ingredient suggestions for this year and paired them together, I instantly knew what I wanted to make for this month’s ingredients – peaches and peppers. Before Wegman’s came around, I had never heard of a hatch chile before, but after their annual events where they […]

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

The middle of December already. Where in the world has this year gone? The last two months have flown by in a complete haze, which explains why I’ve barely shared any holiday recipes with you this month. I’m going to try to get caught up for next week. The ingredients […]

#ImprovCooking Challenge: Snickers Cheesecake Bars

November’s ingredients for the Improv Cooking Challenge were nuts and caramel. I thought about that combination for a while, thinking of sticky buns covered in a caramel sauce or a banana nut bread with a caramel drizzle…and then while eating a lone survivor of Halloween candy, it dawned on me […]

#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 […]
