Chicken Soft Tacos

Chicken Soft Tacos

I was very pleasantly surprised by these chicken soft tacos. I knew I would like them – I tend to like anything that involves limes and cilantro, but I didn’t realize how easy they were to make, or how good the end result would...

Marble Blondies

Marble Blondies

I’m so glad I discovered the Penzey’s Spice Catalog! This is the second recipe (the first was chewy peanut butter brownies!) I’ve made from there and both have turned out perfectly. I’ve got my eye on a few more as well, but at the moment...

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

I cannot say enough good things about these southwestern stuffed peppers. This dish ranks right up there as one of my favorite meals.  I was pretty certain I would like this meal, but what I didn’t realize was just how much Mike would love...

Roasted Garlic, Jalapeno and Feta Dip

Roasted Garlic, Jalapeno and Feta Dip

Beware: this dip is addicting. At first glance I wasn’t sure I would like it. I’m not a huge fan of feta cheese, and jalapenos aren’t normally my thing. But Jessica (from How Sweet It Is) raved about it, so I decided to try...

Stir-Fried Pasta Primavera

Stir-Fried Pasta Primavera

This is a great Spring dish with lots of vegetables. Of course the heavy cream and parmesan cheese don’t exactly make this a healthy meal, but I say just ignore that part and think about the veggies.   This was a great quick meal,...

Cream Cheese Brownies

Homemade Bagels

Homemade Bagels

There is not much better than a homemade bagel fresh out of the oven.  I couldn’t believe how good these were. They tasted so fresh and chewy! This is actually the third time I’ve made homemade bagels. For the first batch, I wasn’t a...

Classic Guacamole

Classic Guacamole

A few weeks ago, our local grocery store had avocadoes on sale for $1 each. Of course, I had to buy a couple. I love avocadoes on sandwiches and we ate quite a few paninis with avocado slices that week! It wasn’t until I was...

Lemon Cream Pie

Lemon Cream Pie

If you’re looking for a dessert that’s perfect for Spring, look no further. This lemon cream pie is light, smooth and creamy, and the perfect mix of sweet and tart. The crust is made of crunchy gingersnaps which gives the pie a spicy taste...

Classic Buttermilk Pancakes

Classic Buttermilk Pancakes

I can’t believe I haven’t shared this pancake recipe before now! We absolutely love pancakes in this house and these classic buttermilk pancakes are our favorite. These are the pancakes I grew up eating. My mom has made this exact recipe for as long...
