Snacktastic Sundays: Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Poppers

Buffalo Jalapeno Poppers 5 (1 of 1)

Short Snacktastic Sundays post today, folks! We were headed to Brad and Amy’s new place to watch the Patriot’s/Jets game at 1pm, and things were running a little behind schedule. Despite getting up at 8:30am today, I somehow didn’t make it into the kitchen until 11:30am (isn’t it crazy how time just disappears on the weekend?). I…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 »

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 »

Pretzel Bites 2c (1 of 1)

Pretzel Bites with Spicy Beer-Cheese Dip

Fall is almost here, and as I mentioned before I’m looking forward to a whole bunch of fall-related things. In no particular order, I am excited for: fluffy sweaters, apple picking, camp fires, crisp mornings/evenings, all things s’mores-related, root vegetables, apple pie, red/gold leaves, crunchy leaf piles, hot apple cider, Halloween, camping/hiking (we do this in…read more »

Apple Braided Bread 3 (1 of 1)

Glazed Cinnamon Apple Braided Bread

So, Labor Day has come and gone, which I guess means that summer is almost over? I have very conflicted feelings about this. On the one hand, I’m not ready to give up warm weather, fruity blended cocktails, or my cute summer dresses/sandals (layering for warmth is not my best look). On the other hand, I’m…read more »

Sticky Buns 6b (1 of 1)

Flour Bakery Sticky Buns + Anniversary…and a GIVEAWAY! {GIVEAWAY CLOSED}

Exactly 1 year and 19 days ago, I married my best friend. To be honest, typing that makes me cringe a little – usually I’m the person that secretly judges other people for posting gushy love notes to/about their significant others online for everyone to see – but it’s a true statement, and I stand by it (I never said I wasn’t…read more »

Thirsty Thursdays: Tinto de Verano

Happy Thursday, everyone! It’s been a while, but I’m finally back with a Thirsty Thursday drink post, and y’all…it’s a good one. Tinto de Verano! Ever heard of it? Me neither! Until a few months ago, when we were at a tapas bar, and my friend Amy told us about the summer she spent living with…read more »

Bacon Jams 6 (1 of 1)

Protein-Style Jalapeno Burger with Bacon Jam {GIVEAWAY CLOSED}

A few weeks ago, I was approached by a company called “The Bacon Jams” to see if I’d be interested in reviewing some of their bacon jam products. My immediate gut reaction was, of course, YUM BACON I LOVE BACON GIMME GIMME (yes, I am the dog from that bacon dog treat commercial). Then I slowed my roll and…read more »
