Berry Salsa with Honey-Lime Dressing

Berry Salsa with Honey-Lime Dressing

I have a couple of fruit salsas already in the archive but I have to say, this berry salsa with honey-lime dressing is the best one yet.

Strawberry Banana and Cream Salad

I was in the middle of hulling strawberries and cutting bananas when G walked in on me in the kitchen. He readily helped himself to a big bowl and quickly polished the generous helping in a few bites, exclaiming these are so good between forkfuls. The big guy sure loves his fruit. I, on the…

Four-Ingredient Ice Cream

Four-Ingredient Banana Nut Ice Cream

Here I am, late to the party as always. Over the years, I’ve seen many spruced-up versions of the one-ingredient ice cream all over the blogosphere.

Kung Pao Chicken

Kung Pao Chicken

Kung Pao chicken is a spicy Chinese stir-fry made with bite-sized chicken, peanuts, vegetables and chili peppers. Although authentic Kung Pao derives its distinctive flavor from the use of Sichuan peppercorns, this classic Szechuan dish has been heavily adapted over the years to accommodate western tastes and availability of ingredients. In my version, I add zucchini,…

Egg in a Nest

Egg in a Nest

Like the avocado egg cups I posted here some months ago, this egg in a nest was inspired by a pin I discovered on Pinterest. When I followed the link, I was not suprised in the least to find that it was a Pioneer Woman’s recipe on Food Network. She is, afterall, the Queen of Yumminess….

The stuffed chicken parcels are then baked in the oven until moist and gooey in the inside and golden and crisp on the outside. They’re wonderful paired with a…

Cajun Buffalo Chicken Bites

Cajun Buffalo Chicken Bites

With a recipe archive heavy on jalapeno poppers, sweet chili bacon-wrapped chicken tenders and beef taquitos, it is safe to assume I am all about fun foods. Every year, I look forward to Superbowl, not because I can tell a linebacker from a quarterback, but because I can’t get enough of the fabulous game day…
