Cooking, Baking & Cocktail Shaking

Buttery Herbed Potatoes

It’s Sunday, and you know what that means…another great recipe. I made a big batch of Buttery Herbed Potatoes to dish up a summer parties. Summertime is my favorite time of the year. There’s an abundance of fresh produce, lazy days spent on the deck with family, and outdoor cooking- my favorite. I enjoy...

Beef, Donuts, and a Vacation!

I’m back! It’s one of those bitter sweet moments. I love being home, but I also love being at the beach and by the water. My dream is to one day live by the water and own a sweet little shore bakery. Hmmmm, one day. For now, it’s a cute little townhouse in Baltimore....

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

You can never go wrong with a Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad. It’s a classic dish that everyone loves. Greetings from cow country, ya’ll (sorry, but we’re in cow country, and in cow country we say ya’ll)! I’m in Pennsylvania for the weekend visiting my family for Memorial day. The drive up here was beautiful...

Cocktail Time

I’ve been mixing up a lot of cocktails lately. I love concocting summery alcoholic beverages. Last week I found a recipe for a cocktail called the Latin Lover on SheKnows, an article written by Claire Gallam from The Realistic Nutritionist. I didn’t realize it at first, but it’s a skinny cocktail. I had my...

Cheesecake with Fresh Berries

Yay! It’s time for another #SundaySupper celebration. I was unable to attend last Sunday because of that dreaded 20-page research paper, but I’m back, and I couldn’t be more excited. We are  celebrating Cristina Ferrare’s cookbook for #SundaySupper this week. I don’t personally own her cookbook, but I hear it’s amazing. I decided to...

Maple Nut Granola

This Maple Nut Granola is loaded with goodness. Eat it my the handful or sprinkle it over yogurt for a hearty breakfast. I’m extremely happy to be back after missing in action for almost two weeks. I’d like to apologize to all of my followers for my short sabbatical from blogging. I have been...

Red Potato & Grilled Corn Salad

Happy Sunday! Today’s #SundaySupper theme is garden recipes. I was thrilled when I found out what this weeks theme was going to be. I love growing fresh herbs in the summer and using them in my recipes. They really brighten a dish. I made Red Potato & Grilled Corn Salad with a chipotle lime...

Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake

I’m craving summer like I crave chocolate. I want to run around it flip-flops and sundresses. I want to sit on the beach with a tropical drink under my umbrella while I read a sappy romantic novel. Summer is so carefree. There are bonfires to enjoy, beach parties to attend, and music by the...

Meatball Subs

Meatballs, anyone? I decided to use the leftover marinara sauce from the chicken parmesan I made last Sunday to make meatball subs for #SundaySupper this week. I’m known for my meatballs. It took me a couple of years to get the recipe just right. They have a lovely depth of flavor, and they are...
