Jennie’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

image

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know that I’m on a search for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. It means something different to everyone, but for me, it’s thick, chewy, buttery, and full of chocolate. I actually really want...

Margarita Pizza

image

I wrote about this pizza a long time ago, but it’s so good I really think it needs a new post (and some updated pictures…if you click back to the old post, please don’t laugh). We love this pizza. Love it. In the summer,...

Spinach Orzo Salad

image

This is a great unique pasta salad. It’s different than traditional pasta salads; somehow it seems a little more elegant. But it’s completely make-ahead and tastes great served up next to some freshly grilled hamburgers or steaks. It’s also a great potluck dish, which...

Lemon Yogurt Cake with Strawberry Coulis

image

This is the cake that got me started on my lemon obsession this spring. I saw the cake on Smitten Kitchen and made it (with a few adaptations) the following weekend. It was delicous, but a little different than I expected.  I took it to...

French Dip Sandwiches

This is a great quick and easy dinner. It tastes fantastic, and the whole thing is done in a crockpot. Perfect for a springtime evening whe you’d rather be out enjoying the nicer weather.  I found the recipe for these french dip sandwiches on...

Strawberry Cake

image

This cake is delicious.  I wasn’t totally sure about the idea of a strawberry cake, but I’m definitely glad I tried it!  It’s pretty and pink and it tastes wonderful.  Now I have to admit that this recipe does start with a box of...

Stovetop Popcorn

image

I never thought I would be making stovetop popcorn. I grew up eating airpopped popcorn all the time – it was the evening snack of choice, and I only lasted a few months after moving out of my parents’ house before I bought myself...

Sloppy Joes

image

This is such a simple classic dinner. I feel kind of silly even posting it, it’s so simple. But I’ve been making an effort to put some quick easy dinner options on the blog, and well, we ate this last week, so here it...
