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…

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Squash Salad

If it was October, I’d call this an Autumn Roasted Salad because it just looks like fall to me (and there’s squash involved). However, it’s April so we are going to call it a Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Squash Salad!!! 🙂 I can’t get enough of the variety and colors in my salads lately. What…

Hawaiian Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Bake

Blueberries are hard to get right now, so of course I want them the most!  I went on a hunt to find some and boy did I!  I bought a huge pack for $9.00!  I know, a little ridiculous for blueberries in my opinion but man were they tasty! 😉 Some of them were HUGE…

Cool Cucumber Salad

Growing up my Dad always made cucumber salad with pasta!  I’ve never heard of anyone else making this… especially with the pasta!  There was a tiny little butchers shop in the town I grew up that made it sometimes and my Dad bought it whenever the butcher had it.  It’s simple, refreshing, and perfect for…

Spicy Fried Chicken Tacos with Cilantro Mayo

I took my lettuce out, diced my red onion, and diced my medley tomatoes. I don’t have much of a green thumb, but man do I try! I have fresh herbs growing in my window. I used a handful of cilantro and and added it to mayo to top the chicken. It’ll be a nice…

Mango, Avocado and Sweet Baby Lettuce Salad

I’ve been in the mood for simple, delicious, fresh salads lately.  These three ingredient salads are delicious, easy, and the variety is perfect! I used sweet baby lettuce and added a big handful to a plate.   Then I sliced up a mango into bite size pieces.  Then I sliced up one whole avocado again…
