Some-Like-It-Hot Stuffed Jalapeños

Holy hot fire, these stuffed jalapeños are good. I’m not lying. I pounded down 15 of these spicy green gems the other night. That’s right. I said it.  FIFTEEN! I’m surprised my stomach wasn’t a burning hole of fire the next day. I love spicy food! Like, sweat-while-you-eat spicy. That’s probably why I adore...

Coffee Break Muffins

Does anyone else struggle to get themselves out of bed on a Monday morning, or is it just me? I don’t know about you, but Mondays are rough for me. What? The weekend is over already, but it just got here. I’m a bit scary in the morning. You don’t want to mess with...

Simple Chicken Parmesan ~ #SundaySupper

Happy Sunday! You know what Sunday means. That’s right, it means it’s time for #SundaySupper. My friend Isabel over at Family Foodie is on a mission to bring back Sunday supper around the family table. I believe in Isabel’s mission whole heartedly. It’s important to slow down and enjoy the little things in life....

Strawberry Lemon Yogurt Muffins

I made a last minute decision to make muffins. They literally came out of the oven 20 minutes ago. I was perusing some of my favorite food blogs the other day, and I came across this recipe for strawberry yogurt muffins by bakerstreet. They looked amazing, so I had to make them. I’m glad...

Chicken Pot Pie ~ #SundaySupper

I believe chicken pot pie can be categorized as comfort food. It’s the type of dish that makes you feel warm inside. The...

Quick Pickled Salad

My girlfriend and I went to P.F. Chang’s for lunch today. It was tasty. I haven’t been there in so long that I forgot how much I enjoy their food. I ordered the pepper steak, and it was delicious. The part I liked most about the dish was the small salad that accompanied it....

Chipotle Turkey Burgers

Let me just start by saying that I have a new love in my life. I found a new grocery store today, and I think I’m smitten. This store is amazing. It’s called The Fresh Market, and the name says it all. As soon as I walked into the store, I knew we were...

Greek Pasta Salad

Happy Easter! I hope everyone is enjoying copious amounts of Easter candy. I’ve been stuffing jelly beans, sour gummy worms, and cupcakes in my mouth all weekend. Starting tomorrow, I’m quitting cold turkey. No more candy, no more cupcakes, and no more caramel sauce in my iced coffee. I may go through sugar withdrawals,...

Iced Green Tea

Happy almost Easter, everyone! I hope all of you are enjoying time with family and friends. I know I am. My family is in town from Pennsylvania this weekend. We’ve been enjoying each others company since they arrived on Friday. Yesterday, my Aunt watched me cook and we chatted about the goings on in...
