Creamy Mushroom, Asparagus, and Sweet Pepper Soup

I’ve been on veggie overload lately.  I always buy WAY too many veggies & fruits at the grocery store and then I’m scrambling to use them in time before they go bad.  I normally buy enough to feed an army, yet it’s only my husband and I at home. So, I was trying to use…

Seafood Fettuccine in a Creamy Garlic Parmesan Sauce

Mussels, shrimp, crab AND scallops. Never ever have I seen all of this goodness in one pasta dish.  I was REALLY craving pasta but ever since I started cooking at home places like Olive Garden just don’t get me as excited as they once did.  I just feel like I get better quality and exactly…

Strawberry Lemonade Bars

These strawberry lemonade bars were my first attempt at a COMPLETELY homemade from stratch do-it-myself baked good.  I’ve probably said this a bazillion times, but I’m not a baker.  It’s not that I don’t enjoy baking – I absolutely love it – I just don’t know what the hell I’m doing!!  I’ve never really given…

Baked Jalapeno Poppers

Cinco de Mayo might be over, but the fun doesn’t have to stop!!!  I whipped up these baked jalapeno poppers.  They’re a bit different than your traditional jalapeno popper… baked instead of fried, barely any breadcrumbs/breading, and made with a smoked gouda cheese.  There’s something about smoked cheese that gives me all of the feels…

Mini Cheeseburger Bites

Mini cheeseburger bites?!?!? Who would have thought that a tiny bun free cheeseburger could be so delicious & cute?! If you don’t love food on a stick, we can’t be friends.  If it’s food and it’s on a stick, I have to have it.  Homemade corndogs, fried cheese, pickles, french fries…. you name it… ALL taste…

Bean Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers

I love making up snacks/appetizers that are easy to share.  These bean stuffed mini sweet peppers were a huge hit & they’re so colorful!! I bought a bag of mini sweet peppers and cut them in half and then removed the seeds. I started on my bean stuffing – black beans, refried beans, garlic, basil, red…

Chorizo Taco Cups

I wanted to make some fun snacks for cinco de mayo and what’s more fun than Chorizo Taco cups?! I bought 1 lb of Hatfield Chorizo and cooked it in a saute pan. No need to add any seasonings… it’s perfect just the way it is! I tried to look for wonton wrappers but the…

Sombrero Pinata Cookies

Good morning everyone!!! I hope you’re as excited for cinco de mayo as I am! I stayed up suuuuper late last night making these Sombrero Pinata Cookies. It’s a sugar cookie made from Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix, filled with m&ms, and decorated with icing. (Get it?? Pinata?? Filled with M&Ms?? 😂😂) How fun?!?! They’re…

Saturday Recap

Hi everyone!!!! I hope your Saturday was absolutely fabulous!  The weather here in Pennsylvania was gorgeous – Sunny & 80 degrees!!!  We did have a big storm come through Friday night but the sun came out on Saturday and dried everything up & it was a scorcher!  I told my husband I wanted to spend…

Grilled Chicken & Veggies Salad

It’s Thursday night and I’m currently starting my 2nd week of 21 Day Fix.  It’s a Beachbody workout program by Autumn Calabrese in case you don’t know.  I’ve used it quite a few times to really give my body a good healthy workout.  This time I’m determined to go the full 21 days without stopping….

Zucchini Frittata

This may not classify as a frittata due to the fact that it’s not partially cooked on the stove first so I was iffy about calling it just that… but I did anyway.  Honestly, I don’t care what you call it because I’m just calling it delicious!!! I sliced zucchini real thin and layered it…
