Shrimp Stuffed Sweet Peppers

One of the most visited posts on my site is about Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos.  It’s gone crazy on Pinterest, on StumbleUpon, on Facebook, on Twitter.  It’s a crowd pleaser and the men love it as much as the women. It’s a party food.  A shareable snack.  it offers meat and heat and it’s poppable. These […]

Game Day Cheeseburger Turnovers

Still looking for some delicious and easy recipes to pull together for this weekend’s big game?  If you are like me…you probably are.  I always have the best intentions of getting my act together, but then Sunday sneaks up on me and ordering a pizza just sounds simplest. Let’s not do that again this year, […]

Bacon Cheeseburger Deviled Eggs

I have been on a deviled egg tare as of late…I seriously can’t get enough of them. For one thing, they are very carb friendly, and considering my new, weirdo diet, no carbs is a great thing for me.  Deviled Eggs have made my life tasty enough to manage through the weeks with no sugar, […]

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

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 […]

Sriracha Shrimp and Candied Bacon Crostini…and a Giveaway

Good news, you guys…I’m back. Have you missed me?  Oh come on now…certainly ONE of you has.  Mom? Yeah, okay. Anyway, life has been a bit nuts lately, and travel and television spots have kept me beyond busy, but I’m still here and I’m still cooking.  This time…for National Shrimp Day. Yes, it exists. National […]

Game Day Goodies!

We are known for being huge tailgaters. I am female.  Jon is…not. What this means is – he thinks a meal of meat and meat alone is a meal.  I think we need to have cookies or brownies or, heck, even a SALAD to go with all of the carnivore action. Right?  Just meat?  No.  […]

Game Day Party Chief with Hillshire Farm

Seriously, this one’s fun. Funn-y, anyway. As you are likely aware, I get asked to create lots of recipes for lots of companies. (I know, it shocks ME, too!)  Sometimes it’s a drink, sometimes a snack, sometimes a dessert.  But get this…Hillshire Farms asked me a week ago if I’d be willing to make something […]
