Sweet Potato Apple Hash

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 […]

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 […]

My boyfriend is away this week house sitting for some friends.  Normally when he’s gone for an evening working at the hospital or out with friends, I like the time to catch up on my girly shows and eat whatever I want.  But a whole week?!  We’ve done long distance before (1 1/2 years total between […]

Cheese Fondue

Sometimes I get a little bit too excited over little things.  For example, yesterday Pandora started playing “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears and I’m ashamed to admit I was so excited, I started texting people about it. Another thing that gets me feeling overly giddy is anything free.  If I see […]

Miso Soup

As you may have guessed, I’m REALLY picky.  I pretty much assume anything I don’t like must be gross.  Typically, I’m wrong.  The most egregious error I’ve made due to my pickiness was assuming that all soups were gross. Every time I try a new soup, I think back to my not-soup-eating days and all […]

Smoky Corn Soup

I’ve been a little obsessed with corn.  I’m not sure why, because I’ve never really been a huge corn fan.  Yet for some reason, when I went to the grocery store the other day and I saw fresh corn, I couldn’t stop putting more and more in my basket.  It started out as “Oh, I’ll […]

Empanadas

I have a confession for you.  I’ve never actually had an empanada.  It seems like something I’d love, right?  Delicious goodies baked in a pocket of love and bread.  It’s right up my alley!  Somehow, I just never had one.  I’ve been on a little bit of a Mexican food kick so I decided to […]
