Asiago Black Pepper Popcorn

Asiago Black Pepper Popcorn

Friday nights are movie nights at our house. That means a fun dinner that we get to eat in front of the TV. The kids feel like we’re breaking the rules and I think that’s what they enjoy the most. Halfway through the movie, we pause it and pop some popcorn. Because it’s just not

Bacon Cheeseburger Macaroni Salad

Bacon Cheeseburger Macaroni Salad

I have a confession to make. You know those burger places that serve burgers spread with peanut butter, jalapeno infused raspberry jam and bourbon bacon? They are all well and good and I applaud their creativity but when it comes down to it, that’s just too whacky of a burger for me. I mean, sure I

Cheese and Caramelized Onion Pierogi

Cheese and Caramelized Onion Pierogi 7

I decided to go Eastern European this month and attempt something I’ve always wanted to try making at home, pierogi. I’ve only ever had the frozen variety so I was super excited to see how delicious a homemade version would taste. The difference is incredible, as I had predicted, and I can’t wait to make them

Trashed Macaroni and Cheese 3

I’m officially back on pasta and bread. Limited but they are back and I’m so very happy. So the first thing I did was combine all my favorite junk foods to trash up a classic, childhood favorite. Bacon, three types of cheeses, pasta, jalapenos and potato chips combine to create this glorious Trashed Macaroni and Cheese. Oh

Cream Cheese Stuffed Everything Chicken with Everything Fries

Cream Cheese Stuffed Everything Chicken

An everything bagel with cream cheese is pretty much my favorite breakfast ever. I very rarely indulge but I absolutely love them when I do. I’m kind of a carboholic if you didn’t know so I decided to give up bread and pasta for Lent and of course now I can’t seem to stop thinking about bagels. So

Black and Bleu Sliders with Balsamic Reduction

Super Bowl weekend is going to be a crazy one for us this year. The kids and I are driving down to Kansas City for my nieces 7th birthday while Joel will be in Iowa for a work trip. We’ll be getting home just in time to watch the game so that means I don’t have

Ham and Cheese Pretzel Calzones

Ham and Cheese Pretzel Calzones

With the Super Bowl right around the corner, I’ve got football food on my mind. You know, wings, pizza, nachos, pretzels….all the things that don’t jive well with New Years resolutions. But you can’t really eat salad for the Super Bowl. That would be sad and wrong. Instead you should eat calzones made of soft
