I love to read about food.  Going over a recipe and seeing all the variety of ingredients and studying how they combined them.  It’s exciting to see new ways people have combined food […]

Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins

 This week has been rough.  I got summoned for jury duty and then selected, I had a midterm exam for one of my classes, I got behind on blogging, and I had a few things happen in my personal life that added some stress.  Sometimes life is rough.  But on this Saturday morning, I’m feeling […]

French Onion Soup

Corn Dumpling Soup

I’m starting to be a little wary of spicy corn soups.  I absolutely love the, but sometimes they don’t come out quite right.  The last time I made a spicy corn soup, it turned pink. Not just slightly pink either, it was bright pepto-bismol pink with bright yellow corn in it.  My friend described it […]

Sweet Potato Apple Hash

This post was featured in the Huffington Post here.  So, yeah.  It’s pretty awesome. I love breakfast hashes.  I actually love pretty much anything containing potatoes, but breakfast hashes are especially my favorite.  I used to buy bags of frozen Potato O’Brien and make them as a special Saturday morning treat for myself. Then one […]

Vanilla Latte Ice Cream

I love ice cream.  My boyfriend and I used to go to Cold Stone a lot and eat so much that we’d swear off ice cream.  It was all fun and games, except one time he actually meant it.  Every time after this fateful day when I’d ask, “Cold Stone?” he’d reply, “I don’t eat […]
