Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

I made Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cupcakes to celebrate the 4th of July, and they are out-of-this-world AMAZING! I took these Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cupcakes to my brother’s girlfriend’s graduation party, and they were a huge hit. I made 24 cupcakes and they were gone within 45 minutes. I had people hovering over me as...

Two Cocktails, One Day!

Today is a special day. Why is it so special, you ask? Because I have two fabulous cocktail posts for you today. Exciting, right? I’ve been a cocktail making and blog posting machine, lately. Both Jen from Juanita’s Cocina and Heidi from Young Grasshopper asked me to guest post while they’re out doing their...

Strawberry Basil Milkshake

This Strawberry Basil Milkshake is the perfect summer treat. Sweet strawberries and fresh basil get blended with creamy ice cream and strawberry sorbet to create a sophisticated milkshake. I’m participating in The Great Shake campaign this week. It’s a fun way to celebrate Adam Ried’s new book. I have read and re-read Adam’s book,...

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...

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....
