Bacon and Egg Potato Salad

Happy Father’s Day to all of those fathers out there reading this!  Whether you had a BBQ to celebrate with friends and family, or went fishing (or crabbing, as some of our friends did), I hope you had an amazing day. 🙂 

We celebrated with family, friends and food and had a blast!  There was beer, grilled oysters, BBQ chicken, pulled pork and my lemon thyme cake!  (We like to go all out.)   While my brother and sister-in-law took care of the main dishes, I wanted to get creative with one of my favorite sides.  I feel like the side dishes are the support staff to a meal and sometimes get neglected.  So, I played around and came up with this recipe for Bacon and Egg Potato Salad!

Lemon Thyme Cake

We’ve done it! We’ve started an herb garden in our apartment! After some discussion, and many recipes utilizing store bought herbs, my boyfriend and I have taken the plunge and decided to roll the die on our gardening abilities. This bodes well for this week’s recipe: Lemon Thyme Cake! Continue reading

Fresh Salsa (Pico de Gallo)

Fresh Salsa (Pico de Gallo)

It’s that time of the year again, where your calendar is filling up with BBQs and fun plans with friends and family!  With that, comes the slight pressure of figuring out what dish to bring.  Ahh!  Memorial Day passed recently and I was trying to figure out what dish to bring to a friend’s BBQ when I had the urge to make fresh salsa.  I scoured through my fridge and found all of the ingredients readily available, so that’s what I’m going to share with you all today! 🙂 Continue reading

5-Minute Artisan Bread

I have a confession…  The last few weeks I’ve been obsessed with watching the Great British Baking Show on Netflix.  Not just the actual show though, but the Masterclass series where the judges, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, bake their interpretations of the challenges from the show.  (Didn’t know there was a Masterclass series, eh?  Well, you’re welcome.)

To be honest, it was something that I originally started to help pass the time while recovering, however it’s actually SUPER fascinating!  All of those baked cakes, torts and breads. (Drool…) It actually reinvigorated my love of baking and got me itching to make a homemade artisan bread!  Which is the recipe I bring to you all today!  Continue reading

I hope everyone in the Tri-State area has been keeping cool the past couple of days.  With all this heat, you may be trying to figure out a great recipe for dinner that is simple to throw together.  (Nobody wants to think too hard with preparing a meal when it’s hot out.) In honor of that, this week we will be making meatballs. But not just any type of meatballs.  We’ll be making ginger chicken meatballs!  Yummm… Continue reading

Well helloooo! 

Happy Friday and a Happy Mother’s Day to all of those mother’s out there!  I know it’s been awhile since our last encounter, but I hope all is well with everyone.  I’ve missed blogging and trying out new recipes to share with everybody, but I had some unexpected medical issues arise and needed to tackle that first. #heartsurgery. Now that I’m back up Continue reading

Blueberry Lemon Loaf

A good morrow to you and happy Saturday!

I’ve been in a baking mood recently (if you haven’t noticed from last week’s post of Chocolate Banana Loaf).  And as a result have decided to dedicate this week’s recipe to baking as well: Blueberry Lemon Loaf!  I figure my previous posts were mostly savory, so why not spice things up a bit, eh?   (I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a little spice in their life?  The Spice Girls did, and it certainly worked for them. Now I’m dating myself….Continue reading

Good Morning Lovelies!

Have I got a recipe that will knock your socks off!  Or actually help keep them on, since the weather is getting quite brisk outside.  As you may have already gleaned, I LOVE breakfast.  Not, like, not adore, but rather LOVE breakfast.  I think it’s a great way to start the day, by getting fuel into your body!  There have been studies proving that it improves your brain function, as Continue reading

Thanksgiving Breakfast!

Good morning and a happy Monday to you all!

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving!  I was able to spend some quality time with friends and family and eat a whole lot of amazing food, so I can’t complain. 🙂  Speaking of, we had SO many leftovers after Thanksgiving, which got me thinking: “What type of leftover recipes could I try out?”  Since we are still in the realm of leftovers, this week’s recipe focuses on how to creatively utilize leftovers you may have in your fridge to create a Thanksgiving Breakfast!
