My man is leaving on tour soon, which means he is requesting I make all his favorite snacks and foods while he’s still home. The picture above being one of them. Have you ever tried a Pistachio Fig Goat Cheese Ball? It’s kinda the perfect
I would like to give a special thank you to the Idaho Potato Commission for sponsoring this post! All opinions and recipe are my own.
I’m talking all about Mushroom Saltado, the incredible plant-based version of the meaty Peruvian Lomo Saltado. It’s been a while since a single dish has brought me this much excitement. The taste is on another level of delicious with a complex array of flavor, and comparable if not better than it’s carnivorous family member. Mushroom Saltado is made with stir-fried red onion, yellow bell pepper, tomato, portobello mushrooms, and sautéed in a spicy aji-amarillo sauce. The entire dish comes together when the stir fried veggies are mixed with crunchy Idaho® Potato French Fries! Traditionally served with steamed rice (ideal for soaking up every last drop of sauce) and drizzled with fresh lemon juice. You’ll want to lick the bowl clean, I promise.

Halloween season seems to bring out the crafty witch in me, as if a spell is cast over my hands and spooky fun begins to swirl. A recent trip to one of The 99 Cents Only Stores proved to be most valuable. You never know what you’ll find when 99-ing, there is always something new and exciting on the shelves. I roamed the isles in amazement of all the awesome halloween candy the 99 had stocked. My mind started with it’s antics of how I could use all this themed candy and build the ultimate candy box for Halloween. One with a haunted cookie house and mini graveyard attached to it. It could be used either as a centerpiece at a party or on Halloween night to dispense treats to all the neighborhood ghouls. (more…)
Today is officially the first day of Fall, and September is national breakfast month. I’ve been waiting patiently for the cooler weather to grace us and make it’s presence known. There is something about that crisp cool air that guides me to my kitchen and begs me to turn on the oven. Once the oven is roaring there is almost a 99% chance I will be baking one of my homemade breads.
My family and I were invited to a pre-screening of “The House With A Clock In Its Walls” this past Saturday, the new movie directed by Eli Roth (Hostel/DeathWish)and starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett. The House With A Clock In Its Walls is a magical kid-scary film. It reminds me of the movies that used to be made back in the 80’s that were just frightening enough to make you jump out of your seat, but nothing that would project your dreams into nightmares.

The story of Pistachio Fig Arroz Con Leche: I got this friend named Rachel, I like to call her Miss Killers, but that’s different story for another time. Rachel is gluten-free and has been for a while now. It seems like most of our encounters are planned around food, either it’s a potluck or a restaurant rendezvous, but (more…)
This post is sponsored by TADIN Teas. All opinions and recipe for Rose Cheese Tea are 100% my own.
People are not really sure what to expect when you say cheese tea. I think it throws them for a loop until they realize exactly what it is. Imagine a beautiful sweet tangy cousin to whipped cream or the no-bake cheesecake batter that you wish you could drink out of a straw. Picture that creamy thick deliciousness on top of Tadin’s Rose Bud tea. Makes sense, people pair cheesecake with fruity flavors all the time. (more…)
Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting has been the topper to my month of August and my headache. I have made the cake pictured above a few dozen times from a recipe I had jotted down on a torn piece of paper and casually placed amongst my books. Most recently my handwritten recipe has gone MIA, which threw me into a total panic, because a dear friend was requesting it. I kept asking myself why didn’t I ever put this recipe on my blog? How in the world did I misplace one of my treasured recipes? It was back to the development drawing board for me. To be honest, I had to make 3 different versions of my Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting until it tasted exactly the way I remember the outcome tasting of my handwritten recipe. Here it is… never to be lost again. (more…)
