On Split Pea Soup

Dear World, What in the good gracious is going on?!? Are you safe? Are you washing your hands? As of right now, I continue to travel to work (awaiting, what I believe, will be an inevitabel Work From Home situation in the coming week or so), but I am keeping my eye out for updates,…

On Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Dear Readers, Let’s just say I’m starting to finally come up for air. It’s been a busy couple of months, but now, with a couple large events almost behind me, I can start to resurface and spend a little more time on writing something more than, “New Recipe! Enjoy!” That’s not really helpful to those…

On Ice Cube Tray Sushi

It’s really not as weird as it sounds, and in fact, this trick is pretty clever! I was perusing Pinterest (as one is wont to do when on the train or in front of the TV) and I came across this “Make Sushi At Home” image and I was very curious! So much so, that…

On M&M Cookies

The other day, with all the cookie making I’ve been doing recently (check out my Facebook and Insta for the Mardi Gras themed cookies I made over the weekend!) Frankie asked me if I now preferred baking over cooking. The answer is no, I don’t prefer either over the other. In fact, while cooking provides…

On Gingerbread Sheet Cake & Christmas

It’s that time of year, when we pull out our most festive threads, put up & decorate the tree (which I think Frankie did a TERRIFIC job of doing this year), and deck our home in Christmas lights and ornaments in all the vases I almost never put any flowers into. Let’s just say, I am…

On Corgi Cut Out Sugar Cookies

First off…oh. My. Goodness. Thank YOU, all of YOU, my readers, my fans, my fellow corgi owners and Corgi fans for the positive feedback on these cookies! I have said time and time again, I am not a good baker, mostly because I don’t always have the patience or precision for it, but these cookies,…

On Mussels Charmoula (Senate Style)

On Slow Cooker Barbacoa Taco

TACO TUESDAY!! OH MY GOSH! It’s my favorite day of the week, next to certain Mondays. Mondays, you might ask? Yes, but only a special kind of Monday! The kind where, no matter how crappy my Monday started, it ends amazingly because around 4pm, Frankie decides we should go out and treats us both to…
