Baked Lemon Yogurt Donuts

Please give a warm welcome to my friend Jen from Juanita’s Cocina. She was kind enough to fill in for me while I’m on vacation. This girl knows my heart, and my tummy. She made donuts! I could live on donuts, especially these donuts. Hi! I’m Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! I was thrilled when...

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad ~ #SundaySupper

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 and smelly all at the same time- Pennsylvania air is tinged with cow manure, skunk, and road kill....

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 ~ #SundaySupper

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 chose a recipe...

Maple Nut Granola

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 extremely busy with school. You know, all the boring things that need to be done in order to graduate. I’ve spent hours...

Red Potato & Grilled Corn Salad ~ #SundaySupper

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 and grilled corn salad with a chipotle lime vinaigrette...

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...

April Foodie Pen Pals

April Foodie Pen Pals

This month was my first time participating in the Foodie Pen Pals program. I loved my first experience. It was so much fun. It was like having Christmas in April. And, I love presents, so I was supper giddy when I received my foodie package in the mail. I was like a little kid,...

Meatball Subs ~ #SundaySupper

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...
