Cream Cheese Brownie Buttercream

IMG_5715

No joke. Cream Cheese Brownie Buttercream. To me, one of the very best brownies is a cream cheese brownie.  Fudgy and tangy and sweet and…not on my diet but, well, maybe it’s on yours.  I also love my version of homemade buttercream, which is made mostly of butter, and umm, cream.  Sugar, butter, cream. So…I […]

S’mores Brownies…and a Giveaway

crock pot brownies

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…it’s football season.  That means tailgating. Now, I don’t know about you, but I swear, if you leave a tailgate menu up to a group of men, you’ll have 47 pounds of meat, and it if you’re lucky? Chips. Maybe.  No fruit, no pasta salad, no mac […]

Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies…and a Giveaway

jif-cookies

Imagine opening your email one day, and having JIF, the Peanut Butter gurus, as YOU to make their peanut butter cookie recipe. Because they think it’s the best, and they just kind of want YOUR opinion. Because they think you matter, (How did they get my email address, I wondered? Who am I?) I blinked […]

Sailing the Carnival Sunshine…Dining

carnival-sunshine-1

A couple of weeks ago, my little family and I boarded the beautiful (and totally made over) Carnival Sunshine.  The Carnival Sunshine is a complete and utterly transformed ship from it’s original status as the Destiny.  A massive undertaking, the Destiny spent only a few short weeks (about 15!) being gutted, redesigned, built on to, […]

Brick Grilled Chicken with Cola Sauce

There’s still time to grill. The days are crisper, but the grill is hot and ready and you should be minding it.  It’s football season, it’s leaves on the ground season, it’s almost time to put on a parka season. Don’t let the time get away from you.  Grill.  Do it. Grill.  And start with […]

Buffalo Chicken Pizza Macaroni and Cheese…and a Giveaway

dixie-buffalo-chicken-pasta

Casual Entertaining. I’m a huge fan of anything that says CASUAL.  And entertaining.  So, when I was challenged by Dreamfields to create a recipe using their Elbow Macaroni with a Casual Entertaining theme, my mind raced and the excitement kept me up nights. Literally.  Dreams of what to do with macaroni kept me awake for […]

Seattle…Food, Fun, and Krusteaz

IMG_6867

A week or two ago, I jetted off to Seattle, Washington, courtesy of Krusteaz, for the IFBC Conference. Seattle is very far away. Airplanes get up early in the morning for flights to Seattle.  But, let me be clear…it is a city worth getting out of bed for. Clean and proper, hip, laid back, and […]

Flatbread Pizza with Fig, Pears and Arugula

flatbread-fig-pear-1

Flatbread is everywhere these days.  Every. Where.  Go to any restaurant and you are likely to see it pop up as an appetizer, possibly even the main course. It’s good stuff. It’s also very easy. So adaptable.  So family friendly.  If the kids just want cheese, you can give them cheese.  If you want something […]
