Goat Cheese, Pork, Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Salsa Sandwich

Long time, no see. I’m going to be real honest. The reason for my lack of blogging is 100% pinterest’s fault. Not only does is suck you in for an incredulous amount of time, but really… between the decadent salted, peanut butter & chocolate cakes, the incessant work out quotes and the pretty pretty perfect parties… where…

Bruschetta Pasta with Crispy Prosciutto & Parmesan

It’s days like today I am thankful I picked up a nasty habit… running. Two months ago I was in Vancouver, Canada, on vacation, helping a dear friend with her 2 month old twins.  Yes…I’m aware the terms vacation and two month twins do not go hand and hand. Regardless, I was thousands of miles…

Cream Cheese and Roasted Garlic Twice Baked Potatoes

So.. I don’t know if I’ve told you guys, but I have a mean habit of meeting undeniably awesome people. If one could somehow be judged on having the best friends and family and made into an Olympic event, I’d be a gold medalist for sure. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s simply a gift. It’s…

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…

Hard-boiled Egg Simplicity

They sell hard-boiled eggs at my workplace for $1.59. For two eggs. It’s highway robbery. The only real benefit is that they are peeled for you. Aside from that you are spending your hard earned dollar (almost two) and only receiving two of those hard boiled dandies for the price of 12. I’m seriously considering making a…

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…

Quin-wow* Salad

*All bragging rights for the Quin-wow name belong strictly to Eric. Until I googled it…. Last night, when I fell in love with this salad, I came to two conclusions. 1. I cannot call this the quinoa, bok choy, feta, strawberry salad with toasted almonds and sesame seeds. Well, I could. But how much fun is it…

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…

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…
