Kicking Cole Slaw

My Kicking Cole Slaw compliments a dish like pulled pork, smoked brisket, hamburgers or taco’s perfectly. It’s crunchy and will stay that way for days, especially if you shred your own cabbage and stay away from the packaged cole slaw mix. It’s always so tempting to pick up those packages that have the cabbage and carrots already shredded and ready to go but remember that they’ve…

Hot & Spicy!

I have been cooking up a storm this weekend starting with my Chicken Enchiladas and Mexican Rice. I borrowed a recipe for a tomatillo sauce from a fellow food blogger (Bunkycooks.com) and used this tasty version instead of a traditional canned enchilada sauce. It was delicious. The Mexican Rice is simple but my husband loves this very traditional recipe and I’m just…

Blissful Bean Soup

Today’s blog is about nothing other than how amazing my White Bean Soup was last night. This was one of those times when I pulled a recipe out of my archives and it seemed too simple to be true. I kept thinking “is this ALL there is to it”? And the answer is “yes”. The ingredient list is almost embarrassing in length, I think there are a grand total of 3 items other than salt & pepper…

The first afternoon was spent sharing a girls only lunch on the Plaza, followed…

I am simply full of gratitude this year. I’m thankful for the friends who filled my holiday…

Mini Chocolate Cherry Cheesecakes

I made these Mini Chocolate Cherry Cheesecakes on Christmas Day because I just didn’t feel like the traditional pumpkin or pecan pie this year. This was the easiest dessert ever! They look so pretty, they’re super inexpensive to make and the recipe makes enough for a large group. This recipe has been around for ages so it’s really nothing new but the chocolate gives it a new edge…
