Appetizers and Snacks

  Let’s be honest, salsas are awesome. Some may even say they are the perfect snack. Well, maybe I just think they are the perfect snack. I think that is reason enough though don’t you think? They are fresh, crisp and refreshing: perfect for a hot Summer day. We go through them like water around …

  With all of this talk of hiking, backpacking and so forth (I really think it’s all I’ve been talking about for the past week — I’m so sorry if this is boring to you), I found it 100% fitting to share a trail mix recipe. Trail mix can get boring; like super, super boring. …

Whether you are hosting a picnic or attending one, I’m sure you have some cooking to do. If you aren’t cooking, I’m sure you will be picking up something pre-made at your local grocery store. I’m here to stop you from doing this! You will be surprised at how easy and affordable it can be …

We love a good crab cake around here. I really think that a really great crab cake is hard to come by. They are so often made with too much bread (panko or some other binding agent) or sometimes it goes the complete other direction, and they aren’t made with enough of the “extras.” Extras …

With the cheese board I decided to make today, I went with an unconventional approach and decided to throw a bunch of different cheeses together. In particular, these cheeses are a few of my favorites. I never met a cheese I didn’t like. This includes the moldy cheeses, the soft cheeses and most importantly the …

So, I’ve been wanting to pair beer and cheese together for a long time. I just really haven’t had the opportunity to do so. Since Zach and I only have 4 more days left in our current home and are packing like crazy, I thought that my love of cheese boards would be the best …

It’s really not as easy as you think it might be. I’m sure at least once in your life you have hard-boiled or soft-boiled an egg. The difference between the two is just as it seems. Soft-boiled eggs are just cooked for less time and the yolk isn’t as hard as in hard-boiled eggs. For …

So yup, I’m still waiting for my ice pop molds to come in. Still patiently waiting. They SHOULD be here today, which means we SHOULD be able to start making them tonight. I hope at least. This better be totally worth the wait! This means that I have to continue to fill in the gaps …
