    Best Crostini Appetizer with Feta and Sautéed Shallots

    It is February folks! That means this is the month of the SUPER BOWL! I don’t know if you watch footballl, but I do!

Everyone loves going to a great super bowl party where there is tons of appetizers, drinks, desserts, and usually nachos. Bringing appetizers to a party is a wonderful idea, because they are scrumptious finger food that a person can easily grab and walk around while talking to people. This particular appetizer should be…

    Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Muffins

    This recipe is one that is simple, uncomplicated, and can be used any time of year. I like these muffins because they can be a snack, side dish, breakfast treat, or a companion to your afternoon tea/coffee. Something to note about these muffins, is that they are best eaten and served within a day or two. They will be the most fresh, moist, flavorful.

For me, that means lots of pools, rivers, lakes, cold drinks, and eating food that is generally cold if possible.

    Green Salad with Pickled Onions and Balsamic Dressing

    Well hello hello. Memorial Day weekend is upon us! That means we will see lots of friends and families getting together, BBQing, making meals, and just spending time with one another. I am grateful for all the men and women who have devoted their lives to serving our country, I am excited to honor them, and I hope that they feel loved and appreciated. On a lighter note, my favorite part of a holiday is the food and the people. I am an extrovert, so hanging out with humans and connecting with them, makes me come alive. One of the main reasons I love creating recipe and cooking food, is…
