Cooking, Baking & Cocktail Shaking

Strawberry Basil Milkshake

I was invited to the Great Shake 2012 with Adam Ried, an online milkshake party that celebrates Adam’s new book, The Thoroughly Modern Milkshake. I have read and re-read Adam’s book, and some of the pages are even a bit sticky with melted ice cream. I thinks it’s safe to say that I love...

Chicken and Beef Teriyaki Skewers

Katie Workman, the author of The Mom 100 Cookbook, is participating in this weeks #SundaySupper. All of her recipes are simple, accessible, and delicious. I made her chicken and beef teriyaki skewers. The marinade was extremely easy to put together, and it was so good that I could have stuck a straw in it...

Blueberry Soda

It’s officially summertime here in Baltimore. Today, it’s a smeltering 100 degrees and the humidity is out of control. It feels like hot dog breath outside- blek! Let me just tell you, this weather is not helping my hair situation. I have a mini fro going on, and it’s a frightful sight. I made a...

Guest Post: Coconut Pineapple Ice Cream

I’m a big dreamer. I dream about learning to play the piano, having my own photo studio, writing an award winning cookbook, getting my hair to look like Jennifer Aniston’s (I’ve come to the conclusion that this will never happen), owning a vita mix blender, and the list goes on. Lately I’ve been dreaming...

Jack & Coke Baby Back Ribs

I made something special for all of you before I went on vacation and am just now getting around to posting it. Better late than never, right? My husband adores meat on a bone, especially ribs. He. Loves. Ribs! The man is like a caveman; he could eat meat off the bone every day...

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...
