S’more Pie

  One of the best parts of camping is making s’mores over the camp fire.  The sticky, gooey marshmallow slightly melting a chocolate bar between two graham crackers….what’s not to love?  My husband loves s’mores so much that sometimes we will roast marshmallows in the oven, under the broiler, just to be able to have […]


Perfect Pan Seared Steak

  Steak is one of those dishes that seems so simple, yet so much can go so, so wrong.  I’ve ended up with overcooked steaks, bland steaks, tough steaks, rubbery steaks…I’ve pretty much ruined steak in every possible way, but after LOTS of trial and error, I’ve come up with the perfect, fool-proof method to […]


Perfect Oven Roasted Potatoes

  I have tried numerous oven roasted potato recipes.  The concept seems so simple.  Mix potatoes with oil and spices, and throw them in the oven until tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.  Easy right? It should be! A lot of the recipes I tried resulted in potatoes stuck to the pan, […]


Maple Spice Cookies

  Pictures can’t do this cookie justice.  This delicious treat is something that has to be experienced to appreciate the amazing maple-cinnamon-spice flavor.  The texture is perfectly soft in the center with a slight crispness on the outside. When you put these babies in the oven, your house will get this amazing aroma that makes […]

Loaded Beefy Nachos

A couple weeks ago, we had a large group coming over to our home.  I didn’t have time to run to the store. I had way too much cleaning to do.  As much as I wish my house was always sparkling clean and company ready, I must face reality.  I live with an active toddler […]


The Ultimate Strawberry Shortcake

This is not your average strawberry shortcake.  This one is special because of the amazing creamy filling that goes with the strawberries.  This filling features, not only whipped cream, but cream cheese, powdered sugar, and a little bit of sour cream.  It’s so good, I think my husband would be happy eating just the filling […]


Asian Pasta with Crispy Shrimp (Looks Can Be Deceiving)

Whenever I see recipes of pasta, I always avoid the ones where the pasta isn’t smothered in a yummy sauce.  I felt that if the pasta wasn’t drowning in some type of rich sauce, it would be blah, bland, and not worth my time.  I was wrong.  I was so so so so so wrong. […]
