…the little I know about food bloggin’
I get at least 3 emails a week asking for advice on how to have a successful food blog or how to “get more readers”. At first it was flattering…Y’all actually think I know what I am doing?! HA! I am just learning as I go — like every other blogger out there. If you [...]
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 ...

Cake Batter Martini
Last week I was out having drinks with some girlfriends at a new swanky restaurant/bar. And before we start, yes I am the type of girl that enjoys those $12 ridiculous drinks -judge away. I like the fun colors and the fancy alcohols…but I really love the creativity the bartenders (or as they now ...
Turkey Sloppy Joes
Growing up we didn’t eat what other kids at school ate. We never had hamburger helper (not that that’s a bad thing, but now my 17 year old baby sister thinks its ahmazing). We didn’t eat take out a lot…in fact it was a really rare treat to have dinner out somewhere. And we definitely [...]
I am so ready for Fall that I can’t even stand it anymore. I have gone into full denial mode and have cranked down my AC and started wearing my boots and sweaters in the house. I am pretty sure the fedex guy tells all his friends about this insane girl he delivers too, but [...]
