Cilantro Chimichurri Burger
Labor Day Weekend may be over, but in Florida we grill all year. I have been eating so many burgers lately that it is bordering on an addiction. I love how cheap ground sirloin is and how many ways you can dress up a burger. I have been getting lots of inspiration lately from Shawnda [...]
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 ...

I am starting a support group for anyone who accidentally purchases grocery store items. Sure, it’s not as big a need as say Alcoholics Anonymous, but if you have ever gotten home and realized you bought the wrong item, you know exactly how frustrating it is. Sometimes I buy items I didn’t really
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 [...]
Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
I have 5 animals. 1 dog that thinks he is a cat and 4 cats that think they are people. I know, I know — this sounds absolutely excessive. It probably is, but each one of them has shown up needing a home and Jorge and I are helpless to turn them away. We are [...]
