Summertime Pasta Salad

There are a lot of condiments and foods that I love and Tom won’t come anywhere near them. One of the items on that list is cold pasta salad. He will eat cooked pasta. He will eat veggies pureed into a sauce, but he will not eat cold veggies (or […]

Fajita Chicken Bowl

Do you ever have a recipe idea pop into your head that persistently hangs out and pops up into the most random thoughts until you finally create it? That’s what happened with this recipe. As I’ve mentioned before, I frequently eat the same thing for lunch for an entire week […]

#FoodieExtravaganza: Chicken, Sausage and Shrimp Paella

Happy first day of March! I cannot believe we are already three months in 2017! Time sure is flying by, especially with how crazy busy I’ve been lately. It’s time for me to participate in #FoodieExtravaganza again, a monthly blogging event where each theme comes from a National Food Holiday. […]

#FoodBloggerLove: Summer Salad Sandwich

Last year I participated in an event called Food Blogger Love where participants are assigned a blog to “show some love to” on an specified day. Well, it’s that time again! The event is hosted by Allison of The PinterTest Kitchen. I was assigned to Amy’s blog, Amy’s Cooking Adventures. […]

#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 […]

Wonton Pot Stickers with Soy Reduction

I remember two years ago when it was really hard to find ground anything other than beef in the grocery stores, even the ones with a large selection. At that time I wasn’t making turkey burgers because I had a horrible experience with turkey chili but there was some recipe […]

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 […]

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 […]
