I’ve found it, kiddos…the perfect flavor to kick off SPRING.  I don’t know about you, but I am about sick to death of winter.  I have had the fortune of being in Florida, Las Vegas, and Houston the past couple of weeks, and got a taste of summer.  Pools and glorious sunshine?  Yes, please.  The […]

Strawberry and Rosemary Chicken and Waffles

rosemary-strawberry-chicken-waffles-2

I am a chicken and waffles freak.  Seriously…I can’t take it.  If I see it on a menu, it’s mine.  I’ve had just about every variety – many of which were in Las Vegas – and every version excites me. For this recipe I created for Krusteaz, I combined a couple of my favorite chicken […]

Dark Chocolate Espresso Brownies

Did you know that coffee really brings out the flavor of chocolate? It does. The first time I really had the two together was in 1999, when I booked my first trip as a grown up (yes, really) to Hawaii.  We went on a dinner cruise, and at the end, we were gifted with a […]

Linguine with Prosciutto, Mushrooms, and Peas

pasta-1

I grew up thinking that pasta required one of two things: Tomato sauce or cheese. It’s taken me some time to realize that there are so many more pasta possibilities…be it a creamy white sauce, rose, vodka sauce, mushroom sauce, or something much lighter, such as a vinaigrette.

Strawberry Yogurt Parfaits with Yulu

yulu-parfait

You may not know this (or maybe you do) – but I have been on a health conscious kick for months now.  That’s a pretty drastic change from the dessert loving, cake baking, bread bread bready bready bread eating food blogger I used to be.  Sure, I still love those things – all of those […]

Sometimes, life is so full.  You don’t even realize that things could possibly be better, because life is just going your way. That usually lasts about 27 seconds. I kid, I kid. But there is some truth there.  For example, I adore my kitchen as it is, complete with 2 fridges, granite counters, a gorgeous […]
