Graveyard Pie

Graveyard Pie 4 (1 of 1)

Happy Halloween, everyone! What are y’all doing for the spookiest holiday of the year? Trick-or-treating with the kids? Egging the neighbors’ houses? Going to fabulous costume parties? All of the above? Sounds like fun! Our plans this weekend not so Halloween-y. Instead of throwing on costumes and heading out to the bars, waiting around at home…read more »

DIY Hot Sauce 4 (1 of 1)

DIY Hot Sauce (Habanero & Sriracha)

Peppers and I have a very love-hate relationship. Mostly hate. To begin with, I’m a wuss when it comes to spicy foods. This is a huge disappointment to my dad, because our family is from China’s Hunan Province, which is known for it’s spicy cuisine. It absolutely kills him that any time he cooks for me,…read more »

Crab Dip 2b (1 of 1)

Snacktastic Sundays: Three Cheese Crab Dip

Short post today, folks. Mostly because it’s ridiculously hard to make white dip/white bread look appetizing in photos, and I had a rough time getting the dip to look like something other than a pile of cheesy vomit. Sigh. Food photography – it makes me crazy sometimes, y’all. But guys, if you can get past the way it looks, this…read more »

Apple Cider Cocktail 6 (1 of 1)

Apple Cider Cocktail…and a GIVEAWAY!

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a representative from Arctic Chill Products, asking if I would be interested in reviewing one of their products. They had seen my Tinto de Verano post, and thought I’d be a good fit for their Arctic Chill Ice Ball Maker (see, I knew all those Thirsty Thursday posts were a good…read more »

Snacktastic Sundays: Crock Pot Carnitas Tacos

So…this Snacktastic Sunday post is a little late. Sorry, y’all. But hey, I’ve still got a tasty recipe for you, so…let’s just call it even, OK? OK! Alright, moving on then. Today’s recipe is another Crock Pot recipe, and it’s stupendously easy. I threw everything together around 10:30pm Friday night, set the slow cooker to “low”,…read more »

Apple Pancakes 2b (1 of 1)

Cinnamon Apple Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup

I may have failed to produce any edible football watching snacks last weekend, but I did manage to put together a pretty great breakfast for us Sunday morning. Crispy oven-fried bacon, scrambled eggs with goat cheese, a big tasty pile of these fluffy cinnamon apple pancakes, and the most amazing apple cider syrup to drown said pancakes in. So much…read more »

Pumpking Mug Cake 6b (1 of 1)

Pumpkin Bread Pudding Mug Cake

A few weeks ago, I got an email from Jennifer, blogger friend and genius behind Kirbie’s Cravings, asking me if I wanted a media review copy of her new 5-Minute Mug Cakes cookbook. Did I want a free copy of her awesome new book full of fabulous new mug cake recipes??? Hahahaha. Wait, was that a real question? Considering the…read more »

Hot Sticky Wings 2b1 (1 of 1)

Snacktastic Sundays: Hot & Sticky Crock-Pot Chicken

Today’s post is brought to you by virtue of the fact that every other game day snack I tried to cook this afternoon either (1) didn’t happen or (2) got horribly botched. First, I tried to make Carla Hall’s Hot Fried Chicken. Things were going great, and my chicken was brining happily in the fridge,…read more »

Kale Toast 2 (1 of 1)

Runny Fried Egg, Kale & Beet Toasts

Fun fact: when you eat nothing all day but nachos, pigs-in-a-blanket dipped in ketchup and blue cheese, and hot & sticky slow cooker chicken wings (recipe forthcoming), and then you drink a bunch of Diet Coke and a single glass of red wine to wash it all down, and you are no longer 18-25 years old, you wake up the…read more »

Pigs in a Blanket 2c (1 of 1)

Snacktastic Sundays: Classic Pigs-in-a-Blanket

Now that it’s fall and we’re well into football season, I’ve decided to start a new weekly blog series. I’ll call it Snacktastic Sundays (it’s a working title), and feature one new game day snack recipe per week. On Sundays, obviously, ‘cuz that’s when all the big football action goes down. I guess technically there are football games on Mondays…read more »

Healthy Truffles 3 (1 of 1)

Healthy Chocolate Truffles

So, don’t judge me or anything, but these chocolate truffles were the only thing to come out of my kitchen this weekend (and, if we’re being technical/honest, all last week). I meant to make tons of other yummy stuff so that we’d have leftovers for lunch this week – Carla Hall’s hot chicken, kale/beet/goat cheese toasts, pigs-in-a-blanket (for football…read more »
