    I look forward to eating “Everything Good in a Pumpkin” all year.  My Mother-in-law made this for me for the first time about 5 years ago and I fell in love. It is the most amazing dip. I love to make this for Halloween, Friendsgiving and holiday parties. But since everything this year looks a…

    Brie tops the list of my favorite cheeses. Its rich, creamy and delicious. Sometimes I spread it on crostini and top it with sliced pear, thyme and honey (see recipe here). Other times I slice it and put it in a panini with turkey and my favorite secret sauce (recipe here). This recipe is the…

    Fall is time for pumpkins. Whether it’s a candle, pie, soap or soup, I love anything and everything pumpkin. This is my Mother-in-law’s recipe. It’s amazingly delicious and feeds a large crowd.

Some favorites in our household include chicken wings, jalapeno poppers (find recipe here), sliders, nachos, chili and of course, chips and dip! These sliders are my go-to because they’re so…

  • Peach Puff Pastry Pizza

    I like to take advantage of peaches when they’re in season and use them in as many dishes as possible. This is a great summer appetizer but tastes almost like dessert (probably why I like it so much). It’s beautiful and so easy to make. Plus, I usually have these ingredients on hand. I love the…

They are so versatile, and you can get super creative with the ingredients. I like to top the bread with different types of cheeses, followed by fruits and/or herbs. Most of the crostini I…

  • Jalapeno Poppers

    April 28, 2018

    These jalapeño poppers are show stoppers! They are the perfect game day appetizer. My husband’s friends request these whenever they come over. These poppers are spicy, salty and cheesy. I love bringing them to a BBQ as an appetizer and they usually disappear within the first 5 minutes. Trust me when I say they’re addicting. This…
