Cooking, Baking & Cocktail Shaking

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...

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...

Classic Chicken Parmesan

Happy Sunday! I made you an extremely delicious and comforting meal. This Classic Chicken Parmesan is one of my very favorite recipes. What’s not to love about crispy breaded chicken over pasta with homemade marinara and melted mozzarella cheese… Absolutely nothing! I made classic chicken parmesan for Sunday supper this week. Today wasn’t the...

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...
