Kentucky Derby Pie

Well it has been a while since I've posted anything, though I've had this post in the works since the Kentucky Derby this spring! Hunter and I were invited to a Derby party, (hats were mandatory) and I wanted to see if there was any traditional Derby food that I could take, and that's when I ...

Ice Cream Sandwiches

I almost feel guilty posting this recipe, because these sandwiches are so tasty and addictive!  They are fantastic in their simplicity, and I can't imagine anyone not liking them. I took these to a super bowl party a few weeks ago and they disappeared ridiculously fast, and I even got a few ...

Tropical Fruit Parfait

Risotto, the Go-To Starch

Risotto is, in my humble opinion, one of the easiest and highest impact dishes a person can master.  For some odd reason people think its tough to make and quite honestly I have no problem with that.  Sometimes you need a dish in your portfolio that is perceived as challenging but can be ...

Our New Go To Meal

Textured vegetable protein (aka textured soy protein) or TVP for short is our new friend. In case you're wondering, we didn't quite make it through our cleanse. The first 24 hours were pretty brutal with headaches, grumbly stomachs and incredibly low energy levels (duh, that's what happens when ...
