Asian Salad Cups


Growing up, my parents hosted a huge party every year for the big game. Lots of food. Lots of games. Lots of fun. There was also always a movie in the living room for the people that didn’t want to watch the game. I remember watching Anne of Green Gables very fondly. Because you need […]

Who doesn’t like tacos?  Well, some people might not like the process of putting together a taco (looking at you dad) so I decided to try to make a bite sized appetizer for Betty Crocker that is packed with all the taco ingredients you love without all the work!

Indian Butter Chicken Naan Pizza


It is the middle of the week. It is a month since I last updated. It is a fact that Minnesota may freeze off the planet. It is almost time for the Big Game. These are all facts. Some that I am truly and deeply embarrassed about. But instead of wallowing in my usual self-pity […]

Baked BBQ Pork Sandwiches


It’s the holiday season! Time for lights, shopping, presents, carols and of course FOOD! I just love being with my family at the holidays and sharing stories around the dinner table over ham and my grandma’s cheesy potatoes. Or late nights filled with snacks, games and laughs. It just makes me stop and continue to […]

Mountain Dew Bundt Cake

Isn’t it always nice to have something ready in your freezer to thaw for a quick dinner? I especially feel that way about chicken. Here are my two confessions about chicken. I love to eat chicken. I hate hate hate to cook chicken. Between the prepping (gross gross gross) and figuring out if it is […]

Restaurant-Style Cornbread


It is wedding week! My baby brother is getting married on Saturday. This month has been just jammed full of excitement, planning, prepping and a sprinkling of stress. Most of the stress seems to be coming from the “spring” weather we are having here in Minnesota. Snow storm after snow storm. However, the weather people […]


What is it about being in a funk? I have been in a creative funk. You know my kitchen weekend? Didn’t really go the way I had hoped. I got all jazzed up and ended up in a funk. I think with the busyness of life around me (showers, weddings, work, re-modeling, home buying) I […]
