Jalapeno Jelly Dip

Jalapeno Jelly Dip

Over the past few years, I have seen jalapeno jelly a number of times at grocery stores and farmers markets.  I believe I started noticing it when we lived in LA and definitely see it a lot here in San Antonio.  It may be a regional thing, but every time I see it I []

Cleaning Your Wine Decanter

Cleaning Your Wine Decanter

It is no secret that my husband and I love a good glass of wine with dinner.  By “good,” I don’t mean “expensive”… Good = Yummy in my book and yummy comes in all grapes and ages.  🙂  One household item that can really add to a wine []

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

My husband and I attended a super fun baby shower this weekend for a neighbor we LOVE (really… I would say that whether I thought she would read this or not… ha ha)!  Though I always shop from a new Mom’s registry to make sure she gets what she truly []

Baked Salmon with a Cucumber Lime Salsa

I probably shouldn’t admit this, but here it goes… My kitchen karma must reaaaaally be off this week because I have made some reaaaaaaally BAD dinners over the past few days.  A couple were the results of recipes I clipped from odd places here and there and one []

Sauteed Mushrooms Over Polenta

I am not sure what inspired the dream, but all my life, I have dreamed of eating my way through Tuscany (and this dream was born long before I read Eat, Pray, Love).  Have you seen Under the Tuscan Sun?  I loved it!  Well, last year on my honeymoon, I finally made it []

Shrimp and Pork Satay with a Coconut Peanut Sauce

BBQ Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

This BBQ Bacon Wrapped Shrimp recipe is so versatile both in ingredients and presentation!  For presentation, I have served these shrimp as a yummy appetizer: Or as an entree with a little rice and a side salad: And the best part… it is healthy!  Using a low []

Making Mayonnaise Better

Making Mayonnaise Better

I like mayonnaise… Let’s just get that out there.  There was a time when I tried to cut it out of my food habits to cut back on calories, but I realized that is just not a sacrifice I am willing to make.  I will not sacrifice flavor for a few calories.  What I have []

Baked Kale Chips

Baked Kale Chips

OK… this doesn’t look like much and probably doesn’t make you say “Mmmmmm” when you glance at the picture.  However, this little bowl contains my new favorite munchy… Baked Kale Chips!  I actually saw Hungry Girl make these on her []

Orzo with Sausage, Peppers, and Tomatoes

Orzo with Sausage, Peppers, and Tomatoes

There is nothing like a girls night in to hit the reset button!  What made my girl’s night in even better this weekend was my dear friend, Erica, showing up at the door with a bag of fresh ingredients to cook me an amazing meal!  Do I have great friends, or what?!? []
