Mint Black Cherry Sparkler

Mint Black Cherry Sparkler

As the summer months are quickly approaching, so is the warmer weather. That means I’ll finally get to dig my sundresses and shorts out of the back of the closet and put away my cozy sweaters. That also means that I need to hit the gym a little harder and fine-tune my diet. Even though…

Guajillo Chili Red Enchilada Sauce

I finally broke down and got a Le Creuset Dutch Oven and I’m in LOVE with it. I’ve been making soups and stews, caramelized onions, shredded pork, and sauces. One of my favorite sauces is this Guajillo Chili Red Enchilada Sauce. After trying lots of different store-bought enchilada sauces, I realized that I never found a…

Tomato and Feta Stuffed Chicken

Tomato and Feta Stuffed Chicken

Stuffed chicken recipes are the best. The stuffing helps keep the chicken nice and moist while adding tons of flavor. After making my Spiralized Cucumber Greek Salad, I had a bunch of feta cheese and tomatoes left over so I immediately thought about adding it to chicken. These chicken breasts are stuffed with crumbly feta…

Spiralized Cucumber Greek Salad

Spiralized Cucumber Greek Salad

My Spiralizer gets a lot of use making pastas and noodles for hot dishes. It’s a great way to replace pasta to create healthier meals. However, raw spiralized dishes can be just as good. This Greek salad is made with cucumber noodles and topped with tomatoes, red onion, olives, bell peppers, and crumbly feta cheese, then tossed in a light…

Bird Nest Marbled Cupcakes

Bird’s Nest Marbled Cupcakes

It’s almost Easter! To celebrate, I made these adorable little bird’s nest marbled cupcakes. These vanilla cupcakes have a delicious chocolate batter swirled through them. That means that you’ll get a bite of vanilla followed by a bite of chocolate. For those that can never decide between vanilla and chocolate (like me), you get the best of…

Steamed Pork Dumplings with a Scallion Dipping Sauce

Steamed Pork Dumplings with a Scallion Dipping Sauce

One of my fondest memories of living in China was visiting a little hole-in-the-wall dumpling restaurant down the street from where we lived. Since we could read very little Mandarin, each dish that we ordered was a complete surprise. We pointed to a few things on the menu and hoped for the best. This method usually worked well for…

Smoked Salmon Pâté

Smoked Salmon Pâté

I’m going to be honest. I’ve been eating spoonfuls of this Smoked Salmon Pâté all afternoon. I think that’s the dangerous part about making an appetizer or dip – they are so addicting. I found myself saying, “just one more bite” about a million times. This Smoked Salmon Pâté is a great recipe to make…

Cheesy Yuca Balls with a Chipotle Mayo

Cheesy Yuca Balls with a Chipotle Mayo

These creamy, cheesy yuca balls are stuffed with mozzarella, then fried until they reach a deep golden brown. They are perfect to serve as an appetizer or as a party snack. You can dip them in store-bought sauces or make your own. Today, I decided to serve them with a homemade chipotle mayo. It’s my favorite spicy sauce…

Barbecue Chicken Crescent Roll Ring

Barbecue Chicken Crescent Roll Ring

This recipe is great for a quick lunch or festive enough for a party. This crescent roll ring reminds me of a barbecue chicken pizza, my favorite type of pizza. It’s packed with delicious shredded chicken smothered in a spicy barbecue sauce, bacon, red onions, and ooey gooey melted cheese. And if that wasn’t enough, I added a light drizzle of extra barbecue sauce over the top with a bowl of blue cheese dressing for dipping.
