Moon Pie Cupcakes

Every year for Valentine’s Day, I make my fiance Jeffrey some kind of special dessert. Well this year, I decided to do something different. We went to the grocery store, and I let him pick any ingredient in the whole store for me to make his Valentine’s Day dessert. As you can imagine if you […]

Fried Clam Po’Boy with Homemade Remoulade

I was in my late 20s when I first had a po’boy sandwich. Don’t make fun of my! I’m a northern girl, so I never even saw it on a menu anywhere until I moved to Virginia. These days, we live near an ocean fishing pier, which is home to a cute little restaurant with […]

Beef Stir Fry with Thai Basil & Lime Sauce

I have to admit… I just don’t like more veggies when they are cooked! Raw is fine (I love salads), but I don’t like most vegetable side dishes. I’m a big fan of stir fry because it sneaks more vegetables into my diet. The grocery store had a sale on beef stir fry meat, but […]

Roasted Potato Ribbons with Leeks

I got a new toy! I’ve wanted a spiralizer for a long time, but I thought they were too expensive, not to mention to big and bulky for my tiny kitchen. Then, Brieftons sent me their spiralizer and I realized I was completely wrong! This bad boy is under $30, super light, and comes apart […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Bread

Earlier this week, I picked up some delicious pink cara cara naval oranges at the supermarket on a whim. I usually get those mini mandarin oranges, but I’m so glad I picked something different this time around. They are delicious! If I cut one open in the kitchen, my whole house smells like citrus. Mmm. […]

Sweet and Spicy Wings (Made In Your Slow Cooker!)

Game day just isn’t game day without some wings! With the Super Bowl coming up, I’ve been on the hunt for a new tasty wing recipe. When I was in high school, my friends and I would go to wing night at a local bar every week (they had a restaurant area Someone from our […]

Triple Hot Chocolate with Homemade Whipped Cream

When I was a kid, I remember the spark in the air the night before a snowfall. We would be jumping out of our skin, listening to the radio and hoping for a snow day, with enough of the white stuff that my dad would have to create tall mounds of it as he plowed […]

Ginger Tea with Lemon and Honey

Homemade ginger tea is about the easiest thing in the world to make, and it is pretty perfect for dealing with an annoying stuffy nose. My fiance, Jeffrey, was a bit stuffed up over Christmas, but he thought it was just allergies. Think again! Turns out he a he had a tiny cold, which he […]

Blueberry Lemon Crumb Bars

Next to peanut butter/chocolate, blueberry/lemon is one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations. When I pulled these bars from the oven, my entire house smelled like happiness. The original recipe I found for these bars didn’t include blueberries, but as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to through some berries in the […]

Low-Carb Fettuccine Alfredo (You Won’t Believe It’s Not Pasta!)

I’m a sucker for pasta dishes, but let’s face it… this time of year, I definitely don’t need to be scarfing down a huge dish of fettuccine alfredo! This recipe doesn’t actually contain any pasta, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised how similar it is to a big bowl of fettucine alfredro. And no “zoodles” – […]

Magical Disney Kitchen Gifts for Every Budget

My sister and I are unapologetic Disney nerds. One of my earliest memories was a trip to Disney World when I was 5, and I make a point to go every few years. My last trip in 2014 was with Jess – I think we are due for another Disney vacation again soon! Of course, […]
