Raspberry Filled Vanilla Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing

I have been baking a lot lately.  A lot, you guys.  I made these and another batch of cupcakes for work one week, and people started hiring me to bake stuff.  Like, I made 600 mini cupcakes last week. You read that right – 600 (thanks, Kristy and Tim for your help!).  And a couple […]

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I fully intended to make a Mexican dish this week to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, and it just didn’t happen.  I hope you can forgive me, but coming on the heels of my National Grilled Cheese Month transgressions, I know it will be hard.  I have actually been very busy baking, so I hope you’re prepared […]

Happy National Grilled Cheese Month!

I feel like I owe you all an apology because I have known for weeks that April is National Grilled Cheese month, and here it is April 24th and I’m just now posting a grilled cheese recipe. This is a travesty, especially considering how much I love grilled cheese.  Well, I hope you have been […]

Crock Pot Cheesy Potatoes

Everyone has those recipes that are great for potlucks, and you use them time and time again.  This is that recipe for me, and every time I take it somewhere new, people ask for the recipe.  I mean, who doesn’t love cheesy potatoes?  This recipe has an added bonus in that you put everything in […]

Broccoli Slaw: Great for Potlucks or Cookouts!

I previously mentioned that my brother had a birthday party recently.  Well, he specifically requested that I bring this broccoli slaw for his party.  Since it was a request, I had to honor it, right?  What kind of monster would I be to deny him his birthday wish?  Ok, that might be taking it a […]

The Easiest Baked Tilapia Recipe Ever

This really is the easiest  baked tilapia recipe ever.  A bold statement, I know.  But it’s true.  It’s so, so easy, and the kicker is it’s really delicious every time.  It’s my all time favorite way to cook tilapia.  This recipe is a regular in our rotation because I almost always have these ingredients on […]

Freak out for Frico!

Ah, that’s a cheeky little blog name, now isn’t it?  I amuse myself sometimes. What is frico?  If you don’t know, I’m very sorry.  Because it is something everyone should know about.  Frico is what results when you bake parmesan cheese (real parmesan cheese, not the powder stuff) into insanely good crisps.  You know when […]

Peanut Butter Banana French Toast

I think Elvis would be proud.  This is the new breakfast of champions. I don’t even know what else to say about this recipe except that you have to try it.  It’s UH-MAZE-ING.  So delicious and decadent.  It’s perfect for a weekend brunch.  And it’s easy.  I’d bet you already have all of the ingredients on hand. […]

Fish Tacos with Roasted Corn and Avocado Salsa

The first time I heard about fish tacos was probably about five years ago, and my immediate thought was “gross!”  Fish and tacos just did not sound like something that should be put together.  Ever.  But the more I got into cooking, and the more my palate’s horizons began to expand, the more okay I […]

Oven Baked Zucchini Sticks with Sweet Onion Dip

A while back, I found a recipe on Pinterest that I wanted to try, but it was a side dish so I was waiting a main dish to pair it with.  The other day, Tim wanted to make turkey burgers, and I thought that would be the perfect opportunity to try these oven baked zucchini […]
