Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread with Fresh Jalapenos

I caught your attention. Didn’t I! This is some DAMN fine bread, and I’m pretty sure I would not have made it had I not been inspired by Baker’s Secret. They approached me and asked if I would do a sweet and a savory dish with the two pans they provide me. It was ON!

I want to be a gardener. I REALLY do. I, however have a not so green thumb. Plus with moving from rental to rental, it almost seems like a waste to invest so much time and money into a garden. Luckily I have good friends who DO have gardens. YAY! This past weekend my friend

How Do You Pronounce Gyros?

How Do You Pronounce Gyros?

I know all my military friends can relate to this. Every place we have moved (and we have moved a LOT) there is always a restaurant or food we miss terribly. Our first move from Montana to San Diego, we missed burritos and curly fries with “white sauce” from TK’s in Hamilton. It took me

We are NOT Vampires in this Family

We are NOT Vampires in this Family

We are most definitely NOT vampires in this family. If there were ever to be a vampire epidemic in the world; we would be totally safe. People would come to OUR house for protection. What I’m trying to say is that we love garlic. It is in most of our meals…in massive quantities. We love

I have not posted in quite a while. Once again, my life had turned into chaos. Once again, things are beginning to settle. A little. In the past month I have moved out of one large house into a small house. We had to have a huge garage sale to help downsize and we still

Pasta Salad with an International Flare…it’s dreamy

Pasta Salad with an International Flare…it’s dreamy

Our household happens to be filled with food snobs. I am not afraid to admit, over the years we have fine tuned our taste buds to the point of turning us into massive foodies. So much so, that my family can tell INSTANTLY if I try to sneak in something that they are normally opposed

Three Heads are Better than One. A Love Story for Garlic, Shrimp, Cheese and Pasta

  There are only a few dishes in my repertoire that I have made for my husband from the get-go. I did not start out as a good cook as most of you know. I was 18 and completely used to my mom and dad making delicious meals for me on a regular basis. Don’t
