(*Only!) 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

(*Only!) 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Would you like a plate of cookies?  Our sweet friends across the street brought over a plate of peanut butter cookies (thanks Abby!) a few weeks ago, and I quickly discovered that the pups absolutely LOVE peanut butter cookies.  Ever since then, I couldn’t get them out of my mind! So today, our 3 little cookie monsters and I … Continue reading

Crispy Cheese Tortillas

Crispy Cheese Tortillas

What is the best part of the perfect grilled cheese or quesadilla?  (Okay, so besides the melted ooey-gooey cheesy goodness that oozes out from within.)  I  believe this to be that very oozing cheese that happens to seep out and crisp up along the sides of the outside as it grills in the pan, no?  … Continue reading

Chip Nite!

Chip Nite!

I had a big bag of these that were literally dying to be eaten the other night so out came our trusty ol’ mandoline slicer!  I usually don’t peel off the skins (extra fiber!) but since these were like I said, about to go under… We also had a bag of kale (Trader Joe’s conveniently … Continue reading

It’s Someone’s Birthday!…Recipes for Uncle Joe

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Uncle Joe!!!  It’s our beloved Uncle Joe’s birthday, and boy, is he getting OOOOLD.   J/K.  He’s not really that old!  Joseph is my one-and-only younger sibling, so no matter how old he gets, to me he’ll always be that trumpet-blaring, silly little troublemaker with a bowl-haircut sporting a red bow tie.  (We even … Continue reading

Chinese Chicken Cabbage Slaw

Chinese Chicken Cabbage Slaw

These days, you can’t go to a popular restaurant chain without them serving some version of a Chinese chicken salad on their menu.  Island’s has their famous China Coast, and CPK serves theirs with those white stringy, crispy whisps called bean threads on top too (are you really supposed to eat those?).  While they may … Continue reading
