Ingredient Challenge #1: Wild Rice
Read more

For 2014 instead of doing my normal Sunday Funday roundups, I wanted to give you all an opportunity to feature your creations here. I know there are a lot of blogs out there that give you an ingredient to work with that you have to come up with a recipe for, but mine won’t quite be as formal as all that. I simply want...

I don’t know about you all, but I’m pretty partied out. I actually never thought I’d say that, but we’ve had so many parties and gatherings over the last couple of months that I think a nice relaxing break is long overdue. That said, there are bound to be more impromptu meetups with friends over the next month or so, and while it’s not...

Black-Eyed Pea and Wild Rice Soup
Read more

As I talked about last year, I grew up with the tradition of eating black-eyed peas in some form every New Year’s Day so as to make sure it’s a prosperous one. This is one tradition that I’ve followed my entire life, and I don’t plan on ever missing it either. I realized that I’d never made a soup with them, so that’s what...

As I mentioned before, I haven’t been feeling all that creative this holiday season, but last weekend took a turn for the better! Finally! These caramel nog button cookies are the result of my mom and I wandering around the kitchen thinking about what kind of cookies we should make for our baking day. I had a bunch of random ingredients lying about, and...

Firstly, I want to apologize for missing Sunday Funday this last weekend. I feel like I’m way busier with holiday events than I have been in year’s past, and unfortunately the blog is the first thing that gets the ax when I’m feeling overwhelmed. However, I have a few changes coming for 2014 that I’ll share with you all very soon, and my intent...

Creamy Spinach Dip

Dec 13, 2013 by

Last weekend I pulled out all of the stops for our holiday party. Though I was completely sure that I wasn’t going to get anything done since we’d just arrived home from LA, I ended up pulling together a nice feast for my friends and I. I had TVP chili, caramelized onion and bacon dip, cream cheese wontons, and tons of cookies and chocolate-covered...

I have been in love with The Tea Spot for some time now. I first teamed up with them back in the summer of 2012 to review some of their organic teas. I always recommend them for gift giving, especially since they have so many cute little gift sets, and I have a unhealthy passion for tea. This year, they have a very cool...

Holiday Gift Guide 2013: Noble Maple Syrup

Thanksgiving is over, and now what remains of the holiday season can commence. Have you all gotten your fill of crazy crowds and stuffing yet? Personally, I didn’t want to do Black Friday this year, so I didn’t, well, at least not early-morning style. I don’t have any ethical reasons why I didn’t go out, I just preferred to sleep in a little and...
