This Goat Cheese Appetizer with Nuts and Honey is a simple recipe that is the perfect combination of sweet, savory and salty.
Do you like to entertain during the holidays? I love it, and that may or may not have anything to do with my addiction to serveware…really guys, I have more appetizer plates and serving platters than any one person should own, but they’re so pretty I can’t help myself! With all of those parties we tend to over indulge a little during the holidays, sugar overload is a real thing! This year we put our minds to creating an appetizer recipe that would be a little lighter but still festive.

Piri Piri Chicken is a spicy Portuguese chicken recipe that can be grilled or baked.
Have you ever had Piri Piri Chicken? It’s a Portuguese chicken recipe made with a spicy piri piri sauce. Piri Piri sauce is amazing! The heat varies on how much of everything you use (and which peppers) but it always has a kick. We made ours with fresh Serrano and Red Finger Hot chili peppers, and some powdered cayenne pepper. The marinade/sauce has a vinegar base and this time around we tried De Nigris Roasted Garlic Seasoned White Wine Vinegar.

Acorn OREO Balls are not only easy to make they are delicious. Just a few simple ingredients and a little creativity and you’ve got the perfect fall treat!
I’m sure you’ve all had, or at least heard of, a cake ball by now, but have you ever had an OREO ball? Seriously guys, they are amazing. I made them as favors for a friend’s wedding a few years ago and they were a hit. I actually prefer them to cake balls because OREO cookies are my favorite cookie ever, and because they are mixed with cream cheese rather than frosting so they aren’t quite as sweet as a cake ball.
These Apple Kabobs are chocolate dipped apples coated in nuts and candy to create fun and delicious treat for your next party!
I love caramel apples, they’re delicious AND pretty, but who wants to stand around eating a whole apple when you’re at a party?
These kid-friendly Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups make getting your kids to eat their vegetables a little easier.
I don’t know how it is at your house but getting my 4 year-old to eat his vegetables, much less try new ones, is no easy task. I’m not against using a few tricks to slip some healthy veggies in unnoticed though!
These Braised Short Ribs are cooked low and slow all day, until they are fork tender and melt in your mouth.
A Dutch Baby is a light, fluffy, not-too-sweet alternative to pancakes. This simple recipe is sure to please all of the breakfast-lovers in your house.
A Dutch Baby is one of my breakfast-loving sweetie’s favorite things on Sunday mornings…ok let’s be real, any day ending in a “Y”. They are big and puffy and you cover them in powdered sugar with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, yum! They are also simple to make and, they bake in the oven which means less time flipping pancakes and more time to make bacon! 😉
I’m sharing my Dutch Baby recipe over at Real Housemoms so make sure to stop by and take a look!
This Bacon wrapped Pork Loin stuffed with Prosciutto & Provolone is a triple pork threat – bacon, pork loin and prosciutto!

These Blackberry Lemonade Popsicles are all natural and full of flavor. A great summer treat for the kids!
It’s summer and that means lots of fun outdoor activities; picnics, 4th of July fireworks, long days at the playground, the pool, or if you are really lucky, the beach! Whether you have kids (like Melinda) or you’re just a super-cool aunt (like me) who is always on the go, it’s nice to have a few snacks planned that are easy to carry with you. When Blue Diamond Almonds showed us their new Blueberry Flavored Almonds we knew they would make an awesome trail mix, and with all of the 4th of July celebrations coming up we went with a red, white and blue theme. The blueberry almonds are sweet and fruity tasting so we mixed them with slightly tart dried cranberries, salty oven roasted almonds and yogurt covered raisins.
Last weekend was Melinda’s son, Sawyer’s birthday. Another 4-year-old in my life…I need these kids to stop growing up! Sawyer requested a race car theme so Melinda and I have been working on all of the decorations for months. The decorations included lots of checkered flags, banners, tablecloths…you name it and we probably found it in a checkerboard pattern so, we decided to try making a checkerboard cake.
A while back we had a girls’ get-together where we tried our hands at making homemade mozzarella cheese. We used a Mozzarella Cheesemaking kit from StoneWall Kitchen. We had so much fun doing it and I thought I’d share a few things we learned along the way.
For beginners (like us) it is easiest to buy a kit that comes with a thermometer, renet tablets and citric acid but if you want to try it all on your own I suggest this recipe from The Kitchn.
It’s asparagus season! Everyone is posting their asparagus recipes so we thought we would share two super quick and easy (but still delicious!) recipes that everyone in the family will enjoy.
