Avocado Aioli Burgers ($10 meal)

I think I professed my love for hamburgers in my last Favorite Things Thursday Post. There is nothing better than a big fat juicy hamburger. A big fat juice hamburger on a toasted bun, slathered with aioli sauce, melty cheese and a creamy avocado…..oh pinch me now! Like I said last week, I like my […]

Rosemary Pork Chops with Balsamic Strawberry Sauce

Please don’t let the bad photo deter you from making this dinner!

Let me tell you how amazing this recipe is…Really REALLY amazing! Once you slather the pork chop with […]

So, I love me some hamburgers. And my family says I make the “Best Hamburgers Ever” They are really quite […]

Green Juice and juicer GIVEAWAY

If you follow me on twitter, Facebook or Instagram, you will know I have gone CRAZY for juicing. No, not pour juice from a store bought bottle. Making my own healthy juices from a juicing machine or juice extractor! I am addicted I tell you. I actually crave it. I am not sure if it’s […]

Texas-Toast Sloppy Joes ($10 meal)

I remember as a kid having Sloppy Joe’s A Lot. I’m pretty sure they were the canned variety. Until I created this recipe for Sweetbay Supermarket , I always used the canned Sloppy Joe sauce too. But let me tell you, making the sauce from scratch is not only WAY better than the can, but […]

Favorite Things Thursday

Ohhhhh, Bar Keepers Friend, How I love thee! Growing up, my parents kept Soft Scrub underneath the sink. It’s all I knew. Then after high school I got a job at Chili’s and the ultra cool bartenders used Bar Keepers Friend to clean everything. So I made the switch and have never looked back. I love […]

Campbell’s AdDress Your Heart GIVEAWAY

I think it is a safe assumption to say that we all pretty much grew up with Campbell’s Products. I remember my Mom was kinda a soup rebel. She would use her cool electric can opener to open the can of classic Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup and only mix it with a HALF a can […]

Double Chocolate Marshmallow Brownies

I am sure if you are a food blogger, you have a pretty spoiled significant other. One night my husband opened up the “Baking Cabinet” and was just staring into it. He was just waiting for me to notice. I said, “What are you doing, do you want me to make you something? With out […]
