Mango Lemonade

Mango Lemonade

I mentioned this mango lemonade a few weeks ago when I made mango ice cream. Whole Foods had sent me a huge box of mangoes and I was experimenting with fun new recipes (mangoes taste great in smoothies, by the way!). I have made...

This is one of my favorite desserts of all time. Growing up, it was a staple at all of our family picnics. Strawberry pretzel dessert always makes me think of summertime cookouts and family gatherings. I even had this dessert at my bridal shower!...

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...

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

Cream Cheese Brownies

I used to think I didn’t like cream cheese brownies. I like my brownies the traditional way – soft and chewy, and without any “extras” mixed it, unless it’s extra chocolate of course. However, I ran across this recipe for cream cheese brownies in my...
