I spent yesterday morning at the car dealer waiting on my car to get fixed. There was a recall on part of my car, so I was lucky enough to sit there for an hour yesterday. Good news is I brought a book, so I was able to catch up on some reading. They also washed my car! It was so dirty, I almost didn’t recognize it when they were done. Love driving around in a freshly washed car, now I just have to cross my fingers that the weather cooperates and it stays clean for more than a day.
Today I am joining a great group of bloggers to bring you a day dedicated solely to macaroni and cheese! Mac and Cheese Mania! There are some seriously talented and creative people in this group, you will not want to miss all the recipes going on today. Plus you can link up your favorite mac n’ cheese recipes for a chance to win some great prizes (no blog required).
Are you a big fan of Italian food? I think I saw a study recently that said Italian food (pizza, pasta, etc) is the most cooked cuisine in American households. So chances are you answered yes, to the first question. Good news, I have a fun recipe for you today. Chicken Parmesan is a classic Italian meal, this is a fun twist on a tradition.
We are enjoying the last day of our 3 day weekend today. My husband and son are both off for Presidents Day. Today we are meeting up with a friend from high school. She is in Denver with her husband, so we get to hang out this afternoon. We haven’t seen them since their wedding, 7 years ago, so it should be a fun day! I didn’t think about it until now, but I think I better bake up something for them to bring back with them. What kind of blogger would I be to not send treats with my guests?!
I have about had it with winter. I realize it is only the beginning of February, but I am over the snow and cold. Part of the reason we moved to Colorado was for the mild winters. Well the last two weeks have been anything but, and I am over it. I have shoveled enough, my back is sore, and I am tired of my toes always being cold. We joked recently about moving to Australia. The longer this winter goes on, the more I am on board with that idea! [Read more...]
Hot dogs are kind of a classic sporting event staple. Whether you go to a football game or a baseball game, there are always hot dogs. Another thing that is always there? Big soft pretzels. So why not combine the two, and have them at your game day event. Or even just a fun dinner on any Sunday.
I can not believe that we are less than a week away from Christmas. That is just crazy to me. I think I have all of my presents wrapped, my stocking stuffers are ready to go, but I still feel so behind. I have to finish planning the menu and grocery shop for sure. Plus there are a few last minute cookies that I need to make. Today is the day I have to make the teacher gifts, so they are ready to go to school tomorrow. The longer I sit here, the longer my list gets. Hopefully I am not alone in this.
The holidays are pretty much here. That means there is lots of cooking and baking going on all over the place. I am constantly running to the store because I forgot something on my list. I sure hope that I am not the only one like that! Today I am teaming up with Del Monte® to show you what a few pantry staples can do for the holidays. A well-stocked pantry can save a ton of time in this already crazy time of year.
I asked on my Facebook page yesterday what you guys wanted to see today; Sweet or Savory. I was shocked, but the savory won out in a landslide. And the request was for healthy savory. I had a different dish I was going to share, but I will save that one for later. I almost forgot about these tacos, so I am glad you guys sent me searching through my drafts. If you don’t follow me on Facebook, make sure you do. We have lots of fun sharing things over there!
I am exited for this post today. It is Pass the Cookbook Club time, and today the book was Seoultown Kitchen by Debbie Lee. This book is all about Koren Pub Grub and food you share with your family and friends. Everywhere you turn Koren barbeque is popping up, so I was excited to see a couple of the recipes and give one a try!
