Meyer Lemon Pound Cake

Meyer Lemon Pound Cake

I have been looking for Meyer Lemons for years here in Tampa, and could never find them. Who knew that Tampa was so behind the times? Well, I was shopping the other day and saw these bright orange lemon shaped fruits, I looked at the sticker and they were MEYER LEMONS. You have no clue […]

Cheesy Spinach and Mushroom Quiche

Cheesy Spinach and Mushroom Quiche

When I was a kid, I thought quiche was food for old people! I swear. And I also thought the Moose Lodge was a skating rink for old people too. Kids are weird…I was weird. And I am sure I thought “old”, was like 38. Sooooo, that currently makes me geriatric. Because I am officially […]

Orange Coconut Kinky Vodka Granita

There was a time in my life when I liked to party, and maybe drink a little too much, I’d say my early 20’s. Ohhhh, the stories I could tell. Now that I am in my late 30’s, I have found my alcohol shut off switch, which I think comes along with getting older and […]

Swiss Cheese Fondue

Swiss Cheese Fondue

Why must we insist on going to a fancy schmancy Fondue restaurant to spend over $100 on fondue? Fondue is ridiculously easy to make and you probably already have everything on hand to make it. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Valentines Day is just a month away, save yourself some […]
