Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Bars Recipe

Reeses Peanut Butter Bars Feature

I have been cleaning and tossing like a mad woman for the last month or so. If you follow me on social, you may already know that I have donated about 20 bags to the local thrift outlet. I am trying so much harder to use what I have, as opposed to hitting the store. I have two areas in my house left to tackle - my kitchen and my craft studio. Yikes! You can imagine why they're the last on the list... I am working through the kitchen one cupboard at a time. I just tackled my baking cupboard. Overall it was more a clean-up and organize than a toss, but I did find a cake mix just about to … [Read more...]

Jalapeno Popper Dip Recipe

Jalapeno popper dip recipe Feature

Today I am sharing one of my favorite appetizers - jalapeno popper dip. Holy delicious. This one is a real crowd pleaser. Jalapeno Popper Dip Recipe There's so much to love about this zippy recipe. The cheese provides a nice creamy base, while the bread crumbs and chopped jalapenos provide substance and texture. BUT. Hands down my favorite part of this recipe is the ability to turn the spicy heat up or down depending on your audience. The key to adjusting heat is the jalapeno seeds. The more seeds you include, the spicier the jalapeno dip is. I am a spice wimp. Really. I generally … [Read more...]

Honey mango shrimp taco recipe. Made in just minutes, this is the perfect summer recipe.

I hadn't planned on taking quite as much time "decorating" the space and was in a bit of a rush to get something cooked and out for guests. Necessity is the mother of all invention and … [Read more...]

Broccoli, Cheese and Rice Casserole

easy broccoli cheese rice casserole - No Diets Allowed

Here's how I usually celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I'm out running errands with my kids. As I push my cart down an aisle at Target, I notice a little girl with an adorable green outfit. While passing, I smile and compliment her cute green hair bow. I keep shopping and stop by a woman who has on some lavish green nail polish. I naively continue on my way until a boy runs pass me with a green shirt on. I stop. It's St. Patrick's Day! I quickly scan myself and my kids searching for any sign of green. Nope. No green. Since I want to spare my kids from a pinch-happy child at our library class, I … [Read more...]
