July Fourth

  I feel like I am full of complaints here lately, but I have been suffering from some serious foodie mental block. If you haven’t noticed, it has been a couple of days since my last post. I’m not usually this lazy, and am usually pretty good at having a good 3-4 posts/recipes up a …

  Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is as pumped as I am that tomorrow is Friday. Woohoo! I thought the day would never come. Thank God. I didn’t think I was going to make it. So I’ve been waiting a couple of days to post this recipe in particular because I was just that obsessed …

  You know the old saying “your eyes are bigger than your stomach?” Well, my eyes are totally bigger than my stomach. Even more so, when I go grocery shopping, I always buy more than I need. I know. It’s absolutely horrible. I just have this fear of running out of something. The mere thought …

  I’ve got another picnic recipe for you today! Hey! I forewarned you that I was in a picnic mood. I can’t stop. I won’t stop. I promise I’ll bake something this weekend. I promise. It’s supposed to rain anyway, and if there’s anything that helps in getting rid of those rainy day blues, it’s …

  I thought I might take a break from sweet treats. It seems like that’s all I’ve been doing this week! We are still quite a ways from Valentine’s Day, but I just couldn’t help myself. Check out my Vanilla Cupcakes and Red Velvet Soft Sugar Cookies if you haven’t yet! They are full of …

  So we’ve decided to go back down this lovely road called “pulled pork road” once again. We had a pork shoulder just hanging out in the freezer, so it was about that time. The problem with trying to feed two people with one pork butt (or pork shoulder — same thing) is that you …

  Let’s be honest, you can’t really go wrong with chips and salsa. Almost everyone loves the combo, and it’s almost always found at get togethers. I think salsa is great for a tailgate. It’s simple to make. It keeps in the refrigerator for a day or two, so you can make it a day …

  Mmmmmmm…Ice Pops…Just the sound of “ice pop” gets my heart-a-racing. I’m such a baby when it comes to the darn things. I’ll only buy two off the shelf products out there…Fruttare and Dreyer’s Outshine (or Edy’s if you are on the East coast). Which by the way, this still has yet to make sense …
