Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

Two weeks ago was the Fourth of July.  And every single Fourth of July I make home-made ice cream.  Not that the extra work makes it taste any better.  But maybe it’s the extra love that does it.  I’m not a huge fan of ice cream in general, so I pick and choose when I

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

Caramelized Onion and Bacon Foccacia

I admit it.  I love onions.  And I love bacon.  I love caramelized bacon and onions.  And not only that – I love carbs.  So it makes perfect sense to me that I would like caramelized onion and bacon foccacia.  I’m always looking for some kind of bread that is pretty easy for me to

Irish Soda Bread

Having never been to Ireland but always wanting to go, I decided to make Irish Soda Bread the other day.  Maybe it was the fact that I was on pinterest and everyone was pinning Irish recipes to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, maybe not.  But the other day, I was a little stressed out and decided

Jalepeno Poppers with Bacon and Puff Pastry

With the Superbowl coming up, I’m all about appetizers.  I normally just make appetizers and call it a day.  This year, we might throw a homemade pizza in the mix, but we’ll see.  Last year, I made a version of these jalepeno poppers and my brother in law thought they were too hot.  I guess

Beef and Broccoli

One of my favorite chinese dishes is beef and broccoli.  I think it’s something about the sauce.  And how versatile it is – you can change out the meat, change out the veggies and have an entirely different dish!  And it’s so easy to make, there’s almost no point in ordering it for takeout. Still

Bourbon – Candied Bacon

I love bacon!  I don’t think I could ever be a vegetarian because I love bacon too much.  Or maybe I could be a vegetarian that eats bacon.  Is that such a thing?  Would it be a baconatarian?  I think there’s something about those crispy little strips that is just addicting.  I’ve tried plain bacon,

Pumpkin-Cream Cheese Muffins

When I think about muffins, I usually think about how much I love to eat the muffin tops!  Really, I could eat the muffin top and throw away the rest of the muffin.  Of course, it being January, everyone is probably thinking about losing their muffin tops instead of eating them.  But you can’t beat

Mexican Shepherd’s Pie

It snowed yesterday and a friend of mine was making shepherd’s pie for dinner.  It sounded so good while I was on the train on the way home from New York, so I decided to make a Mexican version for dinner tonight.  You know you have a home-run when your 19 month old is shoving it in his

Just getting started…..

So probably the last thing this world needs is another food blog…and the last thing I need is something else to do.  What with my full time job, my two kids, keeping house, being in the Coast Guard Reserve and my new part-time job.  But here goes…my first post! Flank Steak Pinwheels I got inspired
