Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes

Wow! What a crazy beautiful weekend we just had! The weather has been nothing short of fantastic! In fact, it has been so wonderful that I chose to enjoy the weather instead of keeping up with my blog! (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)

Easy Irish Soda Bread

One of my favorite holidays, St. Patrick's Day... a time for all things green, Irish dancing, BEER, corned beef and cabbage, and one of my favorites... Irish soda bread!

Pear Tart

I make sure to grab a newspaper every weekend. I should probably just get it delivered to the house... some day. Anyways, with the paper comes Parade magazine. Every week, you can  find a different recipe in the back of the issue. The recipe a few weeks ago was for a pear tart. What do you know? I got a tart pan for Christmas that I've been dying to use! Now if only I had someone to make it for.

Crockpot Parmesan Chicken With Orzo

We have been eating a lot of chicken lately and I THINK I've been doing a pretty good job of mixing up the recipes so it doesn't seem like we are eating the same thing every night. We have eaten it baked, grilled, sliced on sandwiches, shredded on tacos...etc. I found yet another recipe that was unlike anything we had done so far in the last few weeks. Extra bonus- it was a crockpot recipe! (Time saver)

Lucky Charms Treats


St. Patrick's Day is this weekend and in order to start the week off right, I decided to make a treat. We had L's friend over today so I picked something easy so the boys could help me. I was thinking rice krispie treats and then it dawned on me that there is a cereal that is perfect for this holiday...LUCKY CHARMS! Instead of rice krispie treats, we made lucky charms treats! :)

Spaghetti Pie

I grew up eating spaghetti. We probably had it for dinner at least two nights a week. It was cheap, easy, and just plain old spaghetti. Fast forward to married life where I'm lucky if I can get my husband to eat a noodle, let alone a bowl of spaghetti with red sauce. Because of this, I've been searching for a recipe that we can all enjoy as a family that is as comforting, easy, and inexpensive as a bowl of spaghetti. I think I've just found it!

Herbed Rotisserie Chicken Salad On Toasted Brioche

We had a rotisserie chicken from Costco for dinner earlier in the week. Best deal around! We always have leftovers when we buy one of those huge, ready to eat rotisserie chickens, so it's a good thing that re-purposing it is a cinch! We decided to go with chicken salad for our second round of juicy bird. I made a homemade loaf of Brioche (Which, by the way, turned out fabulous!) so that we had something to stuff all of that delicious chicken salad between.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

We do a lot of cooking with Mexican inspired flavors. Store bought taco seasonings for us are always hit or miss and for some reason, I can never remember what brand we like! Well, I think I just solved this problem!

Fresh Baked 'Easy' Brioche

There is no doubt that baking is one of my favorite things to do. Ask anyone that knows me and they will tell you about the sweets and treats that come out of my oven. Every once in awhile I like to bake fresh bread as a special treat. I absolutely love fresh baked bread. Nothing compares to the taste and on top of that, it makes your house smell wonderful!

Minnie Mouse Cake and Cupcakes

When I heard that there was going to be a Minnie Mouse party for my niece's 5th birthday, the gears in my head started turning. I love the challenge of finding great cakes to make and figuring out creative ways to decorate!

Baked Chicken and Savory Herb Waffle Sandwich

First off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my amazing husband! He is the love of my life and the inspiration for a lot of the food I make. He is the one who got me interested in cooking outside the box and for that I am indebted to him. Love you babe!

Wow! All I can say is wow! Okay. That's not true. I may actually have more words to try and describe the deliciousness that was this sandwich.

Mini Fondant Bows (Minnie Mouse)

My niece is having a Minnie Mouse birthday party this weekend and I offered to make the cake. My sister-in-law decided to do a cake and cupcakes. We came up with a cute way for the kids to decorate their own Minnie Mouse cupcakes.  They will already be frosted and ready to go. The kids will each add the ears (mini Oreos) and a bow.
