Potato salad is one of those items that got a bad reputation somewhere along the way. One too many picnics where it was left out in the hot sun, or a cook who added way too much mayonnaise is what it has become known for – but good potato salad is a creamy, crunchy and […]

10 Tasty and Safe Snacks for the Classroom

April 3, 2012

Growing up, I honestly don’t remember knowing anyone who had a food allergy. I had plenty of super picky friends who refused to eat the majority of what was prepared for them, but they were not allergic, just particular.

I live in Denver, and we are experiencing serious Manning-Mania with the news of Peyton Manning joining the Broncos as quarterback.  Just like we experienced serious Tebow-Mania last year when we decided that we’d let Tebow and God lead the Broncos as a joint quarterback situation.  The bottom line is that it’s spring, and people […]

I love any reason to try a new spin on the same ol’ recipe. So when I came across this Feisty Shrimp Cocktail with a mexican flare I was really excited to try them out on my family a few years ago. They won us over and have since become my go-to appetizer recipe. They’re […]

March 23, 2012

I am lucky enough to have come from, and to have married into, families of fantastic cooks. One of my husband’s favorite things to do is experiment with various pasta sauces.

Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich

March 20, 2012

One of my favorite flavor combinations is mozzarella, tomato and basil. There’s something about the earthy flavor of the basil mixed with the acidity of the tomato that can’t be beat. And throw in some delicious, mellow mozzarella and you really can’t go wrong. While I am always in the mood for a traditional caprese […]
