How to Make Drinking Vinegar + My Blueberry Shrub Recipe

I think vinegar is one of those ingredients that you either love or hate, like cilantro (yuck) or avocado (yum). I happen to love vinegar and the acidic bite it brings to recipes. But it wasn’t until last year that I ever heard of “drinking vinegar.” I’ve heard of drinking a little apple cider vinegar […]

Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toaster Pastries #RecipeMakeover

It’s #RecipeMakeover week… which means we’re all rethinking recipes into lighter, healthier versions. I have to admit, I would not call my usual diet healthy. I’m a super picky eater and love sweet treats. So when thinking about what food to recreate in a bit healthier way, I went right to the things I eat all […]

Sugar-Free Carrot Cake with Honey Cream Cheese Icing #RecipeMakeover

I absolutely love carrot cake… but I’m also very picky about it. I usually don’t order carrot cake when we’re eating at a restaurant because you never know what you’re going to get. Is it going to be dry or have a stringy texture? Is it going to be so filled with nuts and raisins […]

Welcome to #RecipeMakeover 2017!

After a long winter of snowstorms, stews, and sweets, spring is the perfect time to get back to the basics – delicious, whole foods and dishes packed with fruits and veggies that are great for your overall health. To eat a healthier diet, you don’t need to make drastic changes (unless recommended by a doctor). […]

Chocolate Key Lime Pie

Everything is better with chocolate, right? I have to admit, I was skeptical about chocolate with key lime pie at first. I do love chocolate-dipped frozen key lime pie, though, so I though, “Why not give it a try?” I’m so glad I did! Everything is better with chocolate. This just proves it. What makes […]

How to Get Ready for Guests in a Dash (Plus Our Easy Cheese Dip Recipe!)

For the last few years, my fiance and I have been Airbnb hosts. Not only does this help us supplement our income, but we also get to meet people from around the world. We’ve had guests from as far away as Australia! (Learn how to become a host here.) Getting ready for Airbnb guests is […]

Cardamom Date Scones

I think I have a scone problem. I just can’t resist them! I’ve never met a scone I didn’t like. My favorite buttermilk scones are perfect with bits of fruit and chocolate in them, and they are extremely moist. But sometimes, you want a crumbier, dryer scone that is perfect for dunking in tea or […]

Mini Blood Orange and Chocolate Trifles

Orange and chocolate is one of those timeless combinations that always seems to work. The tangy brightness of the citrus… the sweet, deep flavors of the chocolate… is your mouth watering yet? My email inbox is overflowing, often with requests from food brands to try their products. More often than not, I say no, simply […]

“Pot of Gold” Miniature Rainbow Cupcakes

I’m so darn proud of these cupcakes. Have you ever tried a recipe that you were sure was going to be a flop? That’s how I felt with this recipe. I was sure that the rainbow batter was going to blob together and create an ugly gray mess. Boy, was I wrong! SUPER WRONG! These […]

50+ Dessert Recipes with Bailey’s Irish Cream

Bailey’s Irish Cream is my favorite liqueur of all time! When I turned 21, the very first drink someone bought me was a “buttery nipple” shot, which part butterscotch schnapps and part Bailey’s. Yum! With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to find some new recipe ideas. Every year, our street is […]

Mini Pecan Pies

True story: I used to hate pecan pie. I’ve never been a fan of nuts in my baked goods. When I was very young, my mammy (grandmother on my dad’s side), made a berry pie and I told her that it was good, but she should leave the nuts out of it next time. Of […]

Are you guys ready for pretty much the easiest, quickest recipe of all time? You just pop the ingredients for this recipe into your slow cooker, set it on low for four or five hours, and then enjoy a tasty dinner. Plus, you can completely customize this recipe by using all of your favorites – […]

Grandma’s Homemade Honey White Bread #FoodBloggerLove

My grandmother’s homemade bread is a staple at any family function. I cannot even remember a time I’ve visit her house (in my childhood or recently) where she didn’t have at least a loaf on hand. This is one of our “secret” family recipes, so I wanted to wait for a special occasion to share it. Today […]
