Sweet Corn, Bacon and Cheddar Risotto

I went and took a fancy Italian dish and trashed it up. Or Americanized it. Whichever phrase you prefer. But seriously though, who doesn’t love bacon, cheddar and corn? And creamy rice. Duh. I made this Saturday night for an impromptu date night at home after we got the kids to bed. We love to

I have another Mexican inspired recipe to share today in preparation for Cinco de Mayo tomorrow just in case you didn’t find something in yesterday’s taco post.

Bacon and Bleu Hot Corn Dip

I have a thing for dips. Chips and dip are my nemesis, my inner fat kid’s favorite snack. Seriously, I would eat them everyday if I could. We were playing a game recently called Truth Be Told and each round you have to answer a question about the reader of the card. Then they are read

Hot Black Bean Dip {Football Food}

Those that know me well know that chips are my downfall, my nemesis, that one food I just can’t resist. I seriously have a hard time practicing self control when they are around.

Mexicorn Dip

I have a total problem with dips. They are absolutely addicting and I can’t control myself. This is a pretty big issue since dips are usually pretty bad for you and then you have to take into account the dippers. It’s just not a good caloric day when dip is involved. Especially when it’s cucumber

Chicken Enchilada Soup {Chili’s Copycat}

I love soup. Broccoli cheese, chicken noodle, clam chowder and potato soup are some of my favorites but I also love a good chicken enchilada soup. I will fully admit I don’t like a whole lot of veggies in my soup so I am sometimes leary about ordering enchilada soup. I have never had Chili’s
