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…

Saturday Recap

Hi everyone!!!!

We were having people over for a relaxing afternoon and well, I wanted something fun that people would enjoy!  What’s better than an easter kabob???  They were super easy and quick to make (which is always…

Wild Leek Dip

April is leek time here in Pennsylvania!!!! My husband and I went out and picked a big bag full of leeks and of course he wanted leek dip!! This is something that’s super popular in the backwoods of Pennsyltucky.  I remember going with my friends and their parents to pick leeks up in the mountains…

Exotic Mushroom & Leek Pierogies

Okay guys, I did it!  I made pierogies!  They always terrified the hell out of me to be honest…. making them, that is.  Anything that requires you to make your own dough scares me because well, I’m pretty much a horrible baker!  I’m a “throw things together” kind of cook and you just can’t do…

Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Chicken with Hearts of Palm Arugula Salad

Hubby and I haven’t been eating out as much which has been absolutely wonderful!!! It allows me to experiment even more with all of the fun food ideas I have been wanting to make!  So, I decided this afternoon that I wanted to try to make Spinach & Artichoke Stuffed Chicken!  My husband LOVES artichokes…

Broccoli & Apple Salad

We lost power last night.  It went out around 4PM.  Peco said it would be back by 6…. at 6 they said it would be back by 10…. it eventually came on around midnight.  So, we ran out and got takeout & beer & headed back home before it got dark.  We sat in the…

Green Goddess Salad

As promised, I’m staying true to my salad obsession lately and sharing all of the recipes with you!  The warm roasted squash & brussels sprouts salad was pretty delicious yesterday and might be one of my favorites.  However, this green goddess salad will knock your socks off! There’s something so beautifully healthy about the color…
