The hostesses who remain most well loved in the hearts of those they served do so because they really invested in the people, not in their decor, not in their flatware, not in the wine they served or the steaks they grilled. It's all about the relationships.Read More
you just can't go wrong with Asian food. It's probably good for our waistlines that it was too time consuming to make on a regular basis because it's just really tasty! I used some Jasmine rice I had in the pantry and frozen stir-fry veggies to make this a whole meal and it was a real treat when it all came together!Read More
Here's a list of excuses you can use to have a reason to make this AWESOME meal:
- End of Summer Fiesta!
- Start of School Fiesta!
- Labor Day Fiesta!
- College Football season Fiesta!
- You own a crockpot and want to have your friends over Fiesta!
If you find yourself cramming in dinner between other commitments like we do, this meal is for you! I made it (and the pasta salad) in one afternoon and it will last us 4 days! It's super simple (thanks to my friend the crockpot) and works well for company. Also, the lemon gives it a nice summer taste.Read More
My regular experiences with sweet potatoes include lots of butter, brown sugar, and marshmallows. Yes, I'm talking about those yummy casseroles we eat at Thanksgiving! However, over the last few years I've been serving up sweet potatoes in newer and healthier ways. This dish has become a favorite of ours.Read More
I've been on a mission this summer to find more tasty "at home" Asian meals and so far it's been a success! The title of this dish describes it perfectly: sweet, thanks to the pineapple, with a kick of fire thanks to the red pepper flakes!Read More
Mom and I made this for the first time a few years ago and I hadn't had a chance to make it again until now. It is a fun alternative to regular pizza and can be customized to include your favorite toppings!Read More
I first made this dish a few years ago as a filling for a lettuce wrap and it just didn't suit me. So, this time, I made the turkey and threw it on top of some Thai noodles, then as leftovers in a whole wheat wrap. Bingo! That hit the spot.Read More
Summertime and apple pie go together. Especially when you throw in a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream *drool*. But, some days you just don't have the gumption to make a whole pie, am I right? That's how I felt the day I whipped up these cookies. They have all the flavor of a fresh apple pie, but were admittedly a lot less work!Read More
