Hopefully this will give you some ideas for a party or shower you might be hosting in the future. Using what you already have in a different way (like the football dish), and picking up paper products and little decorations from a dollar store can really help you save money.
I had never heard of “socca” which is a gluten-free chickpea flatbread, a lot like a thin pizza, popular in the South of France. The crust itself has a very mild flavor so it’s best when topped with bold-flavored toppings. This is so easy to make, inexpensive (depending on your toppings,) and can be made […]
One of my very favorite things about summer is visiting all the local Farmers Markets. Getting outside to enjoy the weather, mingling with those in our community, supporting the local farmers and small businesses, and of course enjoying all the fresh produce and homemade products. Here is the schedule for all the Farmers Markets in […]
I’ve never been a huge fan of homemade lemonade, usually finding it overly sweet or too tart. The few times I have made it, the proportions were off and it tasted just ok, and not really worth the effort. But, the other day I saw a recipe in Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine (the August 2014 edition,) and […]
Watermelon is a healthy, juicy and at this time of year, inexpensive summer treat. Here’s some awesome ideas on how to enjoy one!
This decadent French Toast recipe is the perfect breakfast treat for Mother’s Day!
Here’s 10 of the best foods that work with your body for a natural detox, which just might make you feel better and help your body function better.
The entire house smelled fantastic as they baked up and I think I was actually drooling while I waited for the timer to go off. My only complaint is that they are so good, it’s hard to not overindulge.
Recently there’s been a couple of stories in the news about people going to the emergency room with stomach pains that were a result of accidentally consuming a grill brush bristle, that perforated the GI tract. Who knew? The CDC reports that the tool’s bristles can stick to the grill, then transfer to food and be […]
When choosing strawberries, choose plump, uniform in size, and brightly colored ones. And don’t wash them till you’re ready to use. The baby blue salad with balsamic vinaigrette and pecans is one of my favorites and the vinaigrette is so good, once you make it, you’ll be making it all the time!
I typically try to focus on budget meals that are healthy but every once in a while, it’s not a bad thing to eat something that’s just plain decadent. (At least in my opinion.) Anyway, if you’re going to have a “cheat” day where you’re not tallying up the sugar, calories, and other things we […]
The other night we had company coming over for dinner and I had planned on grilling steaks and serving them with roasted red potatoes, asparagus and a Caesar salad. As I was prepping the ingredients that afternoon I realized I didn’t have any gluten-free bread in the house to use for croutons on the salad. Now […]
Almost any vegetable that grows in a backyard garden can be successfully grown in a container. So even if you are space-challenged, have limited physical mobility or have lots of deer roaming in your yard….you can have a garden!
Today on KKTV while filming at The Cliff House, I think I had the burner turned up a bit too high! Surprise fire is always fun…
I am a huge fan of Bon Appetit magazine and can spend hours drooling over their recipes. Every year they choose a “dish of the year” from amid all the delectable restaurants they’ve dined at and this year it was a simple hummus dish. But after reading the recipe and how Chef Michael Solomonov creates this creamy concoction, […]
Peanut butter… …it’s been around forever, you can usually find it on sale, and it has a healthy combo of fiber and protein that fills you up and keeps you feeling full longer. And it’s packed with nutrition like the powerful antioxidant vitamin E, bone-building magnesium, muscle-friendly potassium, and the immunity-boosting vitamin B6. It can give […]
Sauerkraut and chocolate? Sounded like nothing I’d ever tried or tasted so I just had to find out how they tasted.
If you celebrate Easter with a ham you always have leftovers. I wanted to do something different this year. I’ve had a recipe for a ground ham sandwich and decided, I’d try it with sliced ham instead.
These fun deviled “chick” eggs are fun and simple to make, using your basic deviled egg recipe, cutting it a bit different from a regular deviled egg, and only requires some carrot and capers (or black olives.) They are so cute, they might just have your little ones who don’t like yolk, want to […]
