Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins

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 […]

Cheese Fondue

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 […]

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 […]

Honey Wheat Pretzels

Wow, things have been busy here.  I’ve been working full time, I had two tests since I last posted, and I visited my sister in Atlanta.  Whew.  Luckily, it’s the weekend and I’ve FINALLY had time to make something worthy of posting.  Pretzels!  Since I’ve been so bad about posting, I also included a recipe […]

Tomato Basil Bread

I love Panera and Paradise Bakery (as a side note, have you ever noticed how similar those two places are?  It’s uncanny).  I always get the same thing when I go.  I get the “you pick two” with the Mediterranean Veggie sandwich and mac & cheese.  OK, maybe not always the same thing, sometimes I […]

Apple Onion Puff

Whenever I see a picture of food and it has puff pastry in it, I always want to eat it immediately.  Unfortunately, I had a bad experience with puff pastry when I accidentally set fire to my boyfriend’s oven.  It was a minor fire, but his housemates were not too pleased about the failed experiment […]

Cauliflower with Tahini

Cauliflower Tahini

Cauliflower with Tahini sounds weird, I know.  I first saw this combination on a menu at Pita Jungle.  This place is awesome.  All the food is delicious and healthy.  If you have one in your area, you should check them out.  So when I first went there, I thought I’d try something new, “Caramelized Cauliflower […]

chunky salsa

Salsa is part of the reason why my boyfriend and I are together. The story of this chunky salsa goes back even further than that though.  My sister got this recipe from a chef in Mexico that prepared the food at the hotel where she was staying during a trip.  She loved the salsa so […]

This the final post in three part series involving recipes for piquillo pepper hummus, homemade pita (or pitta), and now stuffed pita.  The hummus is amazing and the pita is the best I’ve ever had.  Combine with a few more simple ingredients and you have a scrumptious snack.  This snack, or light meal, is also quite healthy […]
