March 14th is Pi Day, when we celebrate Pi, or 3.14. It’s origin began in 1988, where a physicist named Larry Shaw celebrated Pi Day at the San Francisco Exploratorium. The staff and public there marched around and then ate fruit pies. Then on March 12, 2009 the U.S. House...Read More »
I have seen and heard about cauliflower pizza crust for awhile now, and I finally decided I needed to see what the big fuss was about. We actually tried two recipes, so the recipe I am posting is a little combo of the two. A few notes about making this:...Read More »
I have been trying to eat healthier for awhile now. It’s often a struggle for me, but one of the main things for me is that what I do eat, whatever it is, HAS TO TASTE GOOD! I do not care for a protein shake that taste like a protein...Read More »
Finding a gift for your significant other can sometimes seem daunting. This year why not try some chocolate treats — chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate mice? These sweet treats aren’t too costly, don’t take a lot of time to make, and aren’t too difficult to make.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
You’ll...Read More »
Red velvet cake seems to be very popular these days — everything sweet now has a “red velvet” flavor. Most people think red velvet cake is a new creation. I hate to burst that bubble, but my Memaw made me a red velvet cake for my birthday every year for...Read More »
Pepper steak has always been one of our favorite dishes in my family. For years anytime it was someone’s birthday my mom would ask what we wanted for our birthday meal. The answer was always the same — pepper steak! I have the actual recipe card my mom used all...Read More »
Is there an art to making protein shakes? No, not really, but there are a few tips to make things a little easier, and maybe a bit more tasty. There is nothing worse than a runny/lumpy, protein powder tasting shake. You may be one of those people who can...Read More »
Wintertime is the perfect time for soup. Relatively inexpensive, easy, and it freezes to enjoy leftovers another day. Potato soup is a favorite at our house and I kind of cheat and start with canned soup and add to that. You can make this potato soup in the
This past fall I discovered a zucchini in my garden that grew to be HUGE — I mean newborn baby huge!!!!!! It was still tender (hadn’t hardened yet) so it was still usable. What in the world could I use this huge zucchini for and what could I possibly do...Read More »
If you like chai, these chai cupcakes are AMAZING! They aren’t that difficult to make and have a wonderful flavor to them. For the icing I like my Memaw’s recipe for buttercream icing, but you can really use any kind of vanilla-type icing you want.
2/3 cup powder (instant)...Read More »
If you’re entertaining for New Year’s Eve, maybe you’ve decided to spend a quiet evening at home with a handful of friends. Perhaps you’re having a giant blowout of a party and are welcoming 2017 with open arms (I know I am, 2016 was a rough one). We have some...Read More »
Apparently a Kentucky Hot Brown is almost exclusively known here in Kentucky. My mom fixed hot brown for as long as I can remember and if you haven’t had one, you need to try it. It’s kind of a cheesy sauce converges with three different kinds of meat, plus a...Read More »
Pumpkin Shake Quest
So Jennifer and I kinda got addicted to Graeter’s pumpkin ice cream in a bad way. But with the holidays coming up, and just the principal of not eating a pint of ice cream everyday, we went on a quest to find a tasty, healthier version...Read More »
Pumpkin is all the craze right now. Especially in my circle of friends. I am not a “great” cook, but I can put something together if needed. So, I thought I would try my hand at homemade pumpkin alfredo using a pumpkin I got at the local...Read More »
Chai is one of the best drinks ever invented (says me). There was a time a few years ago where I HAD to have a chai latte every single day. Not sure what would happen if I didn’t — I think I was too afraid to think of the consequences...Read More »
Derby Day is here…time for mint juleps!!!!! Mint juleps are very much a Southern drink that consists of basically water, sugar, bourbon and mint. Recipes vary from bartender to bartender, but those are the four main ingredients in any “real” mint julep. Mint Juleps are served in julep cups (silver...Read More »
As the cold days are winding down, I hope, I want to share with you one of my favorite chili recipes. I found it online and added my own twist to it and absolutely loved it. And the calories aren’t out the roof!
I am a huge fan of the...Read More »
I love pumpkin. ANYTHING pumpkin. Now that I think about it I don’t think I have ever had anything pumpkin-flavored that I didn’t like: pumpkin pie, pumpkin rolls, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin danish, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, and the list goes on.
Last fall I was looking for the perfect recipe for...Read More »
Making Buttercream icing isn’t as hard as many people might think. It takes only a few ingredients and a little bit of patience. Growing up my Memaw would make me a red velvet cake with vanilla buttercream icing every year for my birthday. It was a four layer cake when...Read More »
