One Pan Dinner

Pinterest Recipe: Chicken, Potatoes, & BroccoliI love when I find things on Pinterest I can actually put to use! I recently pinned this pin and shortly after I just so happened to 'run out of ideas' for things to cook this year so this pin was fresh on my mind. I've tried it (twice as a matter of fact). I've compiled the best recipe from the two times I've tried it:...more

Brownie Cookie Dough Cheesecake

So if you ask me how my ‘super bowl’ was… I would say amaaaziing.. not because I paid much attention to the game, or the balls, or whatever it is people are buzzing about today.. it’s because I was eating this AAAMAAAZZZINGGGG Brownie Cookie Dough Cheesecake.I mean does it really need much more of an introduction?? Probably not because I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like brownie or cookie dough or cheesecake (with the exception of my brother who does NOT count when it comes to food items). So..

Ryan's Surprise Birthday Party

Happy Superbowl Sunday!A month or so ago, I decided that I must throw my husband a surprise 27th birthday party and last night I actually pulled it off! Luckily Ryan had a busy week with work so I was able to pre-make buffalo roll ups, a chocolate cake, and banana bread for the weekend. I hid beer and some take and bake pizzas in the garage because it was cold enough. I also hid some happy birthday signs, cups, plates etc....more

Rosemary Roasted Spaghetti Squash Seeds

I cannot believe that Superbowl XLIX is finally here!!! I have so much stuff to cook this evening it's incredible - but I can't wait. I'm devouring Eragon and it's so pleasant, most of the other books I've been reading haven't given me that joy. I really wanted to use up the leftover seeds from Friday's recipe, and I think it's fitting. Eragon's family are farmers, and almost everything would be utilized as opposed to being wasted. If anything making those seeds made me forget how I should be doing more with the produce I cook with....more

Blueberry Walnut Guacamole

So, today.  Big game. HUGE. (Pretend I said it like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, because that’s how it came out in my head while I was typing it, and she, I think, really nailed that attitude in a way I only hope to some day).Anyway, enough about my girl-crush on Julia. The Super Bowl’s today, which means it’s likeThanksgiving in January. I mean, it is, isn’t it? Lots of food, football on the TV, some of us watching in a mildly interested way, while others of us are in the kitchen the whole time. January Thanksgiving....more
