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

Spicy Orange Teriyaki Marinade and Glaze

Do you live in a house divided? Divided between sweet and spicy? I know I sure do. I love spicy food while Joel is definitely more of a sweet kind of guy (that’s my nice way of saying he’s kind of wimpy). Well, this Spicy Orange Teriyaki Marinade and Glaze is a nice marinade to
