Spicy Italian Dipping Sauce

I wasn’t really sure what to call this yummy concoction, so I’ll take your suggestions. Basically, this what you get when you sit down at an Italian restaurant. I love bread and olive oil with balsamic vinegar and cracked pepper. Adding this pesto-y herb blend really takes it up a notch. I could literally make … Continue reading

Chocolate Sno-Cap Cookies

I made these yummy cookies with the help of Kayleigh Rust! She lended her baking advice as well as some elbow grease to get these cookies made. As you can tell by the pictures, these are not your average cookies. First of all, they are huge and super moist and decadent. I hope you enjoy … Continue reading

Chicken and Cheese Orzo Casserole

I had a girlfriend over for dinner last week and I had this whole great menu planned out, it was lovely. However, right before she came over I found out that she was allergic to shellfish!

Creamy Avocado Pasta

The cooler weather definitely has me craving some more hearty dishes but with plenty of summer produce in the stores and my love for avocados this dish really hit the spot. The avocado really tames the heat of the jalapeño and cilantro while allowing their flavors to still come through. This would be great as … Continue reading

Pumpkin Seeds

Cheesy Enchiladas with Turkey and Spinach

For Mexican girls night dinner, I decided to take the plunge and make enchiladas. I was never really a fan of enchiladas growing up. I think the red sauce always creeped me out. This was my first attempt at enchiladas and they turned out awesome! I took a few steps to make these on the … Continue reading

Mashed Potatoes

I paired this side with Granny’s Fried Chicken. I mean who doesn’t want mashed potatoes with their chicken? What you’ll need: Russet Potatoes Butter Buttermilk Salt and Pepper For this, I washed the entire 10lb bag of russet potatoes. If you’re serving a small crowd, then use less. Now, Granny peels her potatoes, to get … Continue reading
