Easy Restaurant Salsa

This salsa is so simple you’ll never want to buy it jarred again! I like a thin salsa, similar to what you get in the Mexican restaurant and that makes it even easier because you don’t have to even really chop your veggies much- just pulse everything in the food processor until smooth. If you…

Cheesy Herby Garlic Toast

Up until recently, I’ve been afraid of garlic… There, I admitted it. I would only eat it in small doses and if it was well concealed in a recipe, and I would certainly NEVER eat garlic bread! But then, one day, I decided to be brave and try a piece of Texas toast… It was…

Jalepeño & Cheddar Stuffed Beer Burgers

I don’t know too many people who don’t like a good burger. And these days every restaurant and bar seem to have their own gourmet twists on them, with everything from fancy cheeses to stuffed burgers, with the toppings packed inside the ground beef.

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had quite an eventful afternoon at work yesterday… One of my co-workers was outside walking during her lunch break and spotted a tiny kitten in the yard at the fuel company next door. She was peeking out from a large tank and meowing. Now if you don’t already know, there’s one thing I love…

Belmont Punch

Well it’s finally here… Belmont Stakes day! And what a gorgeous Saturday for a horse race! Although the Kentucky Derby has all the prestige and traditions, IMO the Belmont is the most exciting! That’s where triple crown winners are made after all! 🏆 I still can’t believe I actually got to witness a triple crown…

Farmstand Breakfast Smoothie

If you follow my Instagram, you know that I braved the rain ☔️ the other day in the interest of getting some farm fresh local produce, so I had to make sure and put it to good use… I got these gorgeous ripe strawberries- so sweet and delicious! I just love strawberry season. 🤗🍓 I…

Homemade Alfredo Sauce

I like to think I’m a more than a fair cook, and I’ve had more than a few people concur with that sentiment. I’m pretty confident abouy my cheffing skills in fact. That’s why I’m not ashamed to admit it when there’s something I struggle with. I can think of a handful of things which…
