Tex Mex Stuffed Bell Peppers

Now that the baby is a month old, we’ve settled into somewhat of a routine that’s worked well enough for the last week that it was time to try to make some new meals. My first attempt was a modified version of this recipe from Pinterest. The result? It was delicious and a big hit […]

Looking for Food Ideas!

I have never been a great chef, especially on workdays. Meals take too long to make after a long day at work. I have a pretty demanding 3.5-year-old at home, who has always commanded at least 95% of your attention at any time. So, dinners have always been a challenge. Last summer, we decided to […]

BBQ Sloppy Joe Grilled Cheese

  A recent Pinterest-inspired recipe that we decided to try was a recipe for Sloppy Grilled Cheese sandwiches. We modified the recipe a bit to turn it into BBQ Sloppy Texas Toast Grilled Cheese sandwiches, haha. It was…decadent and I ate two, which, five hours later, was still one too many, haha. Essentially, Jay made BBQ sloppy […]

Stuffed Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Bread

It’s been ages since I’ve made a post from something that I’ve made after being inspired by Pinterest. The last time I did a food-from-Pinterest post was October 7, 2013, which happened to be the day that I found out I was pregnant with Zachary. Holy moly, time flies. Anyway, I decided to get back […]

Treats by Theresa

I always love the chance to plug my friends’ endeavors, whether it’s an Esty shop, Kickstarter, their blogs, listening to their podcast, etc. Today, I need to give a shout out to my cousin Theresa and her delicious Etsy shop. It’s call Treats by Theresa, and it features a variety of delightfully tasty goodies, particularly different flavored […]

That Time I Made a Mozzarella & Olive Tapenade Panini

Continuing on with my grilled cheese/panini kick this weekend, I decided to go the opposite route of the Brie & Fig Panini I made on Saturday by making a sandwich on Sunday night with two of my all-time favorite things: mozzarella cheese, black olive spread, and sun-dried tomatoes.  Like the previous recipe, I also got […]

That Time I Made a Brie & Fig Spread Panini

I went a little grilled cheese/panini crazy this weekend.  I just felt like eating cheese.  I found two different recipes on Pinterest that sounded interesting.  One was the one I’m about to share, and the other one involved black olive tapenade, sundried tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese.  I changed both of them to fit what I’d […]

Quiche Muffins!

So my newest “go to” meal to bake lately has been quiche.  It started because I really wanted bacon, but felt I should be “healthy.”  I spent all summer eating healthy and pretty much eating nothing but fruit, fruit smoothies, egg white omelets, and gummy bears, haha, so I’ve been splurging a lot in the […]

Cheddar, Avocado & Sun-Dried Tomato Quesadillas

I’ve been on another big DIY/try new recipe kick lately.  I printed out a bunch of stuff from Pinterest, put them in a binder divided by category, and have been trying to work my way through them.  Hmmm.  Does that mean I took the Pinterest out of Pinterest?  Anyway, I was looking for quick-n-easy recipes […]

Homemade Potato Chips!

I haven’t done a Pinterest-inspired post in a while.  Last weekend, I was feeling a little bored and a lot inspired, so I decided to try making homemade potato chips.  I did this over the course of two days because it took a lot longer than I anticipated.  The first night I tried them, I […]
