Party Nachos

Party Nachos

I love nachos, but I hate when they get soggy.  It’s like all the delicious toppings become too much for the chip and it ends up just being kinda gross.  I also never understood why people think that nachos make such great appetizers.  Sure, the chips can all be separated, but what about the big […]

Coach Bag Giveaway

September 2, 2013

I promise the next post will be a recipe.  I think you’ll accept a non-recipe post for this though… I love handbags.  I was looking for shoes for a wedding in Famous Footwear and ended up buying a new bag online from Nine West.  I can seriously take any shopping trip and find a way […]

Guacamole

One night, I was talking on the phone with my sister and I was describing the best guacamole I had made to date.  It was awesome and I was talking on the phone with my sister (who is super awesome).  My night was going well.  As I was describing to her how incredible it tasted, […]

Broccoli Pesto Bake

Sometimes at the end of the week I’ll end up with really weird things left over.  A tiny little bit of cheese, a handful of chopped onion, you know what I mean.  Random odds and ends of food that didn’t get used up.  Instead of tossing this all away there are two things I always […]

Cheddar Biscuits

If I could live in my PJ pants, I probably would.  Putting on “real” pants is always the worst part about getting up in the morning, and as soon as I get home from work I switch to my PJ pants.  On weekends, I’ll lounge around in them as long as I can.  I know […]

Step by Step Guide for Making Yeast Breads

August 13, 2013

Today I failed at making a crock pot soup.  They said it couldn’t be done!  Unfortunately, I’m here to tell you that something as easy as a crock pot soup recipe can go horribly wrong.  It started when I wanted my corn soup to be a little spicier and a little creamier.  The result was […]

Calzones

Calzones

Calzone recipes are good for a lot of things (like filling hungry bellies), but they were especially handy last week.  I was traveling for work for a few days.  It was exciting because it was my first business trip and I felt super official plus I was going to Washington and got to see a […]

Marinara Dipping Sauce

Tomato Sauce

Sometimes you really need a tomato sauce and you don’t have one.  Maybe you made calzones or mozzarella sticks.  It’s tempting to just pick some up at the store but if you want to save some money or if you just don’t want to go to the store, it’s easy to make a tasty tomato […]

Ricotta Cheese

Ricotta Cheese

I love cheese. I think that probably 90% of the thinks I make contain cheese.  One day I was thinking about how awesome it would be to make some cheese myself.  I think there was a Groupon for a cheese making kit or something like that.  So I went out and bought some stuff to […]

Onion Rings

August 2 is International Beer Day (IBD)!  I love beer.  My senior year of college, my best friend and I found a bar that had a beer challenge where you had to drink all of the different bottles and draft beers offered within 3 months of starting the challenge.  We went there a couple times a […]
