Grilled Zucchini

I don’t like a whole lot of vegetables but the ones that I do enjoy I totally love. And zucchini is one of those vegetables. I could probably eat it every day. I love grilled zucchini but I usually had trouble preparing it. I used to slice it into bite size chunks, place it in

Roasted Banana Muffins

So if you haven’t noticed by now, I totally have a thing for muffins. They are always my go to option for a quick but delicious breakfast. They can be made up the night before and warmed just a bit in the microwave in the morning if desired. Then slathered with some butter…or not. Don’t

Brown Butter Ice Cream with Pralined Almonds

It’s time again to break out the ice cream machine! That little fact pretty much makes my entire week. I have a thing for ice cream in a really bad way. It doesn’t really matter how full I am, I can still manage to find room for ice cream. I inherited this love of ice

Smoked Gouda Risotto

Joel and I enjoy watching Hell’s Kitchen for all the ridiculous yelling and silly punishments and all the risotto they make. We have been watching it the past few seasons and every time we say “we should try making risotto” then we never do. It always looks so creamy and delicious but I worried that

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

I love everything and anything with buffalo sauce! So, whenever we visit a pizzeria I am always on the hunt for a buffalo chicken pizza and am never disappointed. Finally, I decided that I shouldn’t have to go out to have this yummy pizza so I made my own version at home. And I’m so glad I did because

New Orleans Food Tour {Part I}

We had a great time during our trip to New Orleans! I especially had a great time eating all the local grub! We didn’t get to eat as much Cajun food as we would have liked (because of the times of the games we had to eat at the dome a few times) but still

Cucumber Dip

This is by far my absolute favorite dip EVER! And I mean it! It’s actually one of my favorite foods/dishes ever. It’s cool, refreshing, creamy and to die for slathered on a cracked pepper and olive oil triscuit. It is always my go to dip when I need a quick and easy crowd pleasing appetizer.
