Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Goat Cheese and Dried Cherries

By |2019-11-25T11:29:25-05:00November 25th, 2019|Air Fryer, Low Carb, Recipes, Side Dish|

It's a shame, really.  You live so much of your life foolishly youthful in palette.  Do you know how many years I lost to thinking brussels sprouts were gross? And don't get me started on dark chocolate or rye bread.  I sometimes envision myself as some eccentric old crone, living in a yellow house, listening [...]

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

This post was updated November 14, 2018 because I'm a way better cook that I was in March of 2008. Enjoy.  Hot wings? Good. Pizza? Good. Hot wing pizza? KEEP GOING.  I’m not a pepperoni pizza kind of girl.  In fact, I’m firmly on team “put some pineapple on it,” and I catch all manner [...]

And with snow comes a slew of things you just can't comfortably do in Ohio, anymore.  Mowing is rough.  Washing your [...]

Air Fryer Roasted Asparagus

Heads up, this post contains two Amazon affiliate links, and as a an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Last Christmas, my mother-in-law bought me an air fryer. I'd heard of them, since much like Instant Pots, they were making the rounds as the next hipster Pinterest appliance, but owning one was never really [...]

Quick & Easy Corn Salsa

By |2019-11-10T09:05:50-05:00August 12th, 2019|Appetizer, Mexican, Recipes|

Wait, is it technically "salsa" if there are no tomatoes in it?  Yes? No? Alright, I stopped caring, we're calling it salsa. I call everything I can dip a chip into salsa.  Corn salsa lives in my fridge the entire summer, next to the Trader Joe's Toasted Sesame salad dressing and whatever take-out I forgot [...]

Cucumber Tomato Bacon Goat Cheese Salad

Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens... Okay first of all, nobody loves whiskers on kittens, that's insane. Are kittens cute? Yes. Is it because of the coarse wires jutting out of their cheek fat? Um, no. If I rewrote the song, My Favorite Things, today, it'd be about goat cheese and taking my jeans [...]

Knock You On Your Ass Margaritas

By |2019-11-10T10:00:21-05:00April 12th, 2019|Booze, Mexican, Recipes|

This margarita recipe is my brother's and a family favorite. Mostly because it's strong. Like, real strong. In fact, we may or may not jokingly call it Kissing Cousins juice, because hey, we live in the country, and it just makes everything that much more appealing, especially when sipped on a pond raft or around [...]

Instant Pot: Curry Cauliflower and Butternut Squash Soup

What's this, a recipe? I know, I never do this sort of thing anymore. Honestly, I barely cook these days, and sustain life via take-out menu. But, I need to talk to you about my soup. I got an Instant Pot for Christmas and took it out of the box 2 weeks ago. First things [...]
