Watermelon – Feta Salad

Watermelon – Feta Salad

I think Watermelon is one of those fruits that is best eaten cold.   And before it becomes mushy.  If you’ve never sprinkled salt on ice-cold watermelon, you’re missing out!  You absolutely MUST try it.  I know it sounds weird, but it’s divine!  With that in mind, when one of my very favorite aunties texted

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

There’s something about the combination of salt and caramel that is so yummy and decadent that I can’t resist it.  It’s kind of like browned butter.  Any time I hear browned butter, sign me up.  Any time I hear salted caramel, sign me up. So the other day, TAB was bored and we decided to

Slow-Cooker Mustard BBQ Pulled Pork

When I used to live 15 minutes away from my big sister, I used to crash her house for dinner all the time – because it was delicious and because I didn’t have to cook. Hah.  One day she had us over for pulled-pork that she made in the crockpot – it was so good,

Chicken Enchiladas

Let’s face it – sometimes I’m in a jam and don’t know what to make for dinner that KB and the kids will like that won’t take too much of my time.   Especially on the days I have CG drill in Boston.  Those days I either have to leave it up to KB or

Crunchy Broccoli Salad

I’m not normally a salad eater.  Unless it’s a really creative salad.  If it’s something a little bit out of the ordinary with a delicious dressing then I can devour it.  So the other day I decided to make a salad to serve alongside some turkey burgers for dinner since I am trying to get

Margarita Cupcakes

Naturally my day 2 cupcake blog will consist of the second batch of cupcakes that I made within 2 days.   I’ve been on a big cupcake kick since moving to Connecticut.  Maybe it’s just because I like cupcakes or maybe it’s just because I still haven’t found a cupcakery that I like that will

White Chocolate – Blackberry Cupcakes with a Pink Champagne Frosting

The other day I found myself in the position of having to make 2 different types of cupcakes within 2 days for 2 events.  Not really sure why I volunteer myself for these things – perhaps it’s because I don’t mind baking.   So naturally, I went to Pinterest for to find a quick and

Mexican Rice

So when I was making my fiesta for Cinco de Mayo this year, I also decided to make some Mexican rice.  I don’t make it often, which is kind of weird because it’s super easy to make.  It’s just a combination of tomatoes, onions, garlic, broth and rice all together in one dish and it’s

Fresh Pico de Gallo and Roasted Garlic and Jalepeno Guacamole

In keeping with my Mexican theme from yesterday I thought I’d blog about the pico de gallo and guacamole that I served alongside those pork carnitas.  Truth be told – I made these recipes for Cinco de Mayo this year.  KB thinks he’s celebrating his independence.  From what, I’m not exactly sure.  But every year

Pork Carnitas

Pretty sure KB is Mexican.  When I first met him he loved Italian food.  But now he loves Mexican food.  And the spicier, the better.  Which is what I don’t understand.  I’m all for a little heat, but this man takes it to the extreme.  He even found a little spice grinder of ghost chilis
