What screams summer? Well besides ice-cream? Salad. Yep, you’re correct. Salad. Sure, salads are good and all, and Cobb Salads are the bomb diggity ; but I wanted something a little out of the ordinary. I took the traditional ham and/or turkey out of the mix and replaced it with oven roasted shrimp. Soooo Yum. […]

Egg Salad is like one of my favorite things in the world! Did you know it’s National Egg Salad Week? Best week ever. I am usually a traditionalist when it comes to things like egg salad and tuna salad, but I wanted to come up with something that would “Fancy It Up”. Let me explain […]

Ombre Dot Cake

Ombre Dot Cake

Sigh. My oldest turned 11 and it makes me sad. My ovaries twitch for maybe 2 seconds and then I think of sleepless nights and spit-up soaked shoulders and then my reproductive organs shrink right back down. If you have been following my blog for a few years, you know I try to make my […]

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 […]
