Adirondack Salmon Chowder

image

I have a confession. I have a fear of cooking seafood. It’s sad but true. If you look back at the history of this blog you will find zero (zero!) seafood recipes. Can anyone else relate? I mean there are so many intimidating questions – Where do...

Pizza Bites

image

Another delicious recipe for that pizza dough I’ve been raving about. I got this recipe from Annies Eats (the same place I got the pizza crust – that girl knows her pizza!), and we loved it. Mike loves any sort of stromboli/pepperoni roll, so...

Baked Zucchini Sticks

image

  We’re always looking for new ways to eat zucchini. Well, I am at least. Mike loves his zucchini simple and straightforward – sauteed with salt and pepper and parmesan cheese, and is hesitant to try any other version. While I also really like zucchini...

Blueberry Sauce (and a Giveaway!)

image

*Don’t miss the blueberry giveaway at the bottom of this post!* It should be no secret around here that Mike LOVES blueberries. Seriously, I think I post a blueberry recipe once a week!  But it makes him happy, and it causes him to give...

S’mores Cookies

image

Apparently Tuesday was national s’mores day and I missed it. I’m a little late, but trust me, these cookies are worth the wait. After the sucess of my s’mores whoopie pies, I was on the search for more s’mores type cookies. I made these fun...

Sweet Corn Salad

image

This is a great summer salad.  It’s fresh and unique, and the combination of summer vegetables is delicious. We had a family cookout last weekend and I was assigned a salad. Someone else was already bringing a veggie tray, so I knew I wanted something...

Blueberry Cheesecake

image

I’m on a roll. I have added blueberries into so many recipes, and blueberry season’s not over yet! This blueberry cheesecake was a highlight for me. Much like the pie, it was a new challenge, because it was my first ever cheesecake. Don’t cheesecakes...

Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella Baguette

image

This is so simple I feel guilty really posting a recipe for it. But this is one of our favorite summer dinners, and until I had this exact sandwich in London (multiple times), I never thought to make it on my own. All it consists...

Blueberry Pie

image

It’s blueberry season in Michigan! I’ve already been blueberry picking twice, and I have big plans for all those berries. Mike loves pretty much anything with blueberries in it (muffins, bread, cake), and theyr’e so much fun to bake with. We had Mike’s aunt...

Pesto Chicken Pizza

image

I found the fabulous pizza crust recipe I just posted about while searching for a recipe for pesto. I had a jar of pesto that I wasn’t sure how to use, so, as I usually do in these types of situations, I searched my...
