#FoodieExtravaganza: Nashville Hot Chicken

The first time I ever heard of Nashville Hot Chicken, I was watching an episode of Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. The story supposedly goes that a married woman was tired of her husband being a womanizer and after a particularly late night of him running around on her, she decided to […]

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 […]

#FoodieExtravaganza: Cilantro Lime Cucumber Salad

Did you know that May is National Salad Month? Yeah, me either. I like it though. It’s a strange memory to have, but I clearly remember the first time I ever ate a salad. I was maybe three or four and my mom had made one for herself. I remember […]

#RecipeMakeover: Buffalo Chicken Celery Sticks

Mexican Chocolate Brownies

Crock Pot Sriracha Chicken Tacos

When I was doing the Whole 30 silly me thought that I could have tacos in lettuce cups and it would be just as great as regular tacos. What I failed to realize is that my two favorite parts of the taco are the cheese and sour cream. Let’s just […]

Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Bombs

Many moons ago my friend shared an image of these delightful little creations with me on Facebook and asked that I make them soon. I quickly looked up the recipe and saw that these little bombs of goodness are right up my alley. Bacon. Cream Cheese. Jalapeno. Really, what more […]

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Against the advice of the ladies on my cooking board who said it would be a lot of prep work, I opted to have a meatball bar for the going away party we had for Calvin. I narrowed it down to four different types of meatballs, all using a different […]
