Sweet Heat Watermelon Gazpacho

Sweet Heat Watermelon Gazpacho is a chilled soup featuring a ton of summer flavors such as watermelon, cantaloupe, tomato, peach and fresh herbs like mint and basil.  I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but here it is hot, hot, HOT. We’ve had multiple days over […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Crustless Caprese Quiche

Quiche is a very hit or miss recipe for me. Either I like it and I want to devour the entire plate of it, or I don’t like it at all. I blame this entirely on the eggs, which is unfortunately a necessary ingredient in making quiche. I don’t like […]

Parmesan Parsley Roasted Potatoes

For as much as I cook, I feel like the one thing that I consistently struggle with is a serving a variety of side dishes with our dinners each night. It doesn’t help that Tom doesn’t like most vegetables and isn’t a big fan of rice, which really limits my […]

Brown Sugar and Thyme Roasted Carrots

When I was a kid I preferred to only eat raw carrots as opposed to cooked ones. It took until I started cooking on my own and experimenting with recipes to realize that my dislike of cooked carrots came from eating them once they were overcooked and mushy. I don’t […]
