Peach BBQ Slow Cooker Pork with Cilantro Citrus Slaw
The older I get, the more ok I get with certain vegetables. Sure I always ate things like broccoli, carrots, squash and what not…but put some cabbage in front of me and I was out of there. There is still no way you will get me to eat slimy okra, but I am slowly coming [...]
Idaho Potato Harvest
Last week I spent most of my days covered in dirt and half buried under pounds of potatoes. No, I wasn’t on some weird episode of Dirty Jobs…I was celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Idaho Potato Commission by attending the Idaho Potato Harvest! When the wonderful people behind the Famous Idaho
Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates
I want to talk about Dates today, but first we have to talk about “Stuffed”. My past three recipe posts have been stuffed… Stuffed Dates, Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies, and Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. I have no idea what my hang up is with everything stuffed. So no, this isn’t like a ...

Old Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies
I am a Britney Spears fan. Big Time. Like I almost filmed my very own “Leave Britney Alone” video. Yes, I know that she can’t really sing that well. And yes, of course I feel embarrassed when I have great indie bands grouped into the same playlist as BSpears on my Spotify…but what can I [...]
Carmel Valley Ranch in Carmel, California
Last week I got the awesome opportunity to go to Carmel, California with DOLE Salads to visit their farms, processing plant and learn a little more about their background. In the next couple of days I am going to share some of the photos I got from the fields and an awesome recipe for a [...]
Peanut Butter Stuffed Brownies
Last year Jorge turned 29 and I made him Reece’s Pieces Cupcakes. Today is his 30th birthday and big surprise, he requested something with chocolate and peanut butter. In the past, we have had Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites, Mini Peanut Butter Oreo Pies, Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate ...
