Baja Fish Tacos

Summer is on the way and if you haven’t noticed by now, I’m kind of obsessed with grilling. And this is the perfect light and refreshing summer supper. It involves a few components but they are quick and easy to throw together and totally worth the work. Even better, the sauces can be mixed up

Ramen Cabbage Salad

For Memorial Day this year, we decided to travel to Kansas City to visit Joel’s family. It’s so hard these days to travel 9 hours in the car so we really cherish the times that we are able to get back. We have a lot of fun and exciting things planned for the weekend including an

Creamy Macaroni Salad

I just love picnic food so it should be no surprise that I just love when Memorial Day rolls around because it means that picnic food is here and not going anywhere for a few glorious months! What could be better than cold fried chicken, lemonade and macaroni salad? Not a whole lot in my book.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

These peanut butter bars are definitely one of my top 3 favorite desserts ever (along with Lemon Hush and pretty much any cheesecake). I literally can wipe out an entire 13 x 9 pan of these if I am left alone with them for too long. They are the ultimate combination of chocolate and peanut butter and

Steakhouse Panini

We got a panini press a little over a year ago and love using it whenever we get the chance. Joel requested panini’s a few days ago and I decided to do something different from our usual Ultimate Grilled Cheese or Honey Mustard Chicken. We don’t eat a whole lot of red meat but I

Brown Sugar Balsamic Pork Loin

Now that summer activities have started up, life is getting busy busy busy! On Wednesday’s Joel has softball at 6:30 but has to leave the house by 5:50 and usually doesn’t get home from work until 5:30. That leaves very little time to get dinner on the table, especially with a busy toddler that wants

Poppyseed Lemonade Mini Muffins

Remember on Wednesday how I promised a yummy brunch item to finish off your Mother’s Day meal? Well, here it is. I bring you Poppyseed Lemonade Mini Muffins….my official new favorite! I’m sure you don’t believe me since I just brought you roasted banana muffins only two weeks ago and claimed they were totally heavenly.
