Slow Cooker Korean Lettuce Wraps

Okay, here it is. Pork Butt Part II. If you’re a little confused, let me explain. Last week, I bought a large pork butt at the grocery store. I used half of it to make some pretty awesome Slow Cooker Carnitas and saved the other half for these Korean Lettuce Wraps. These lettuce wraps are super-easy to […]

Cinnamon Apple Sweet Potato Waffles

My waffle iron gets a lot of use in my kitchen. However, it’s been years since I’ve put waffle batter in it. I’m constantly adding different ingredients to my waffle iron to see what happens. I started with some simple waffle iron hash browns, but have moved on to crazier things like waffle iron pizzas and […]

Maple-Candied Bacon

This recipe is just in time for Valentine’s Day. What’s more romantic than candied bacon? Okay, maybe I can think of a few things, but this is definitely somewhere on the list. This maple-candied bacon is sweet, savory, and will make you wonder why you didn’t try it sooner. This bacon is glazed with brown […]

Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

I promise that this will be my last candied bacon recipe for a while. I think I went a little overboard. After making a huge batch of candied bacon, I started chopping it up and adding it to all sorts of dishes (starting with the waffle sliders). After adding pieces of bacon to several breakfast recipes, […]

Waffle Sliders With Candied Bacon

I constantly dream about food. Honestly, I think some of my favorite recipes were created in the middle of the night. For example, the idea for these waffle sliders came to me at about 3 o’clock in the morning. I woke up in the middle of the night and started thinking about what I could put in […]

Smoked Salmon Salad With A Lemon-Dill Dressing

Today’s recipe is a super-simple recipe that can be prepared in just a few minutes. I know that several of my recipes can be a little complicated or have many steps, so I wanted to share an easy recipe with simple and fresh ingredients. This smoked salmon salad is topped with a poached egg and […]

Barbecue Chicken Crescent Roll Ring

As I was rifling through the refrigerator gathering the ingredients for today’s recipe, I noticed that half of what I had purchased was missing. I bet you could understand my confusion as I dug through my fridge searching for the chicken and cilantro that I was positive I bought. I distinctively remember paying for the ingredients, but something about my memory […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
