Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Spread on Pita

This title leaves little room for interpretation; I’m aware. But don’t let the lack of creativity with the name fool you. These things are worth a try. And once you try them, you’ll thank me. I recently made this as an appetizer for my book club amigas. I thought I was super clever and subbed…

Valentines Day Treats

You didn’t think I’d let a this Hallmark holiday go without any celebration, did you?? For tonight I’ve prepared: Bruschetta Bites Strawberry Poppyseed Salad Skewers Dark Chocolate Filled Raspberries Cheese Plate (I live in Wisconsin. This is necessary. With that said, I HIGHLY recommend blue cheese with a fig vinegar.) And I haven’t even pulled…

Summer Rolls

This weekend, I learned my television is capable of passively exhibiting a NASCAR race. My dad snuck the alleged sport in during yesterday’s Packer game. I would find myself all excited about a touchdown then CLICK.  vvvrrrrmmm. vvvvrrrrmmmm. Something in a southern accent. vrrrrmmm. vrrrrmmm.  I unconsciously shoot a look of panic at my mother. She giggles…

Stuffed Zucchini

You could make peanut butter and pickle sandwiches if you want. Put olives in  your chocolate cake. Nutella on pesto. Sun dried tomatoes and chickpeas to your artichoke dip. Inside zucchini. I have had a lot of time to think today. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of a little baby girl.  (I told you my friends are…

Bees-n-Cheese

Last weekend I helped plan my bestest friend in the whole wide world a baby shower. Her sister came up with a bee and tulip theme that I took, surprise surprise, a bit far. Let’s just say I made Friday night’s help take a vow to not detest me after the bee-pop making process. I’m…

Spiced Pecans

I am fortunate enough to have the maintenance guy live above me. The other day, he knocked on my door and asked if I had a leak in my humble home. The next day, I spotted a small pool of water forming on my countertop. Three hours later and (insert sarcasm font) I can now see the…

Sun dried tomato & feta on a log

What do you do when you find yourself with an overabundant amount of feta cheese? (Besides sigh with joy?) Make yummy tomato, onion and feta omelttes? Yes! Throw some on all forms of pizza? Done! Add to all salads? Of course! Accidently drop a bunch on the kitchen floor and cringe when it goes into…

Soft Pretzels

Confession: Last night I almost peed my pants. Two weeks ago we had a jam packed Sunday. The weather decided to say hello with freezing rain and icy conditions. Every plan we had that day was cancelled. Including the 9:15 showing of The King’s Speech I so eagerly wanted to see. Two weeks later we…

Tailgate? Super Bowl? Camping?

I live in Wisconsin and we live to tailgate. Brewers. Badgers. Packers. Beer. Food. Friends. It’s a good time, all the time.  Three years ago I made this dish and it’s been a request ever since. I love this dip because it is one of the least high-maintenance dishes I make, the prep time is under…

Testing, Testing

I can upload a picture. Phew. I’ve read up a little in the last couple of weeks about blogs and I have come to three conclusions. 1. I’m going to need an English tutor. 2. I’m gonna need a new camera. 3. I’m gonna need to start cooking/baking more during the day. Sadly, the last…
