Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

Can we talk breakfast?

Fast forward to January, and I won’t even tell you what we are eating for breakfast. But, let’s be realistic; getting out of bed for a bowl of cold cereal when its 10 degrees outside isn’t really enticing. So it’s time to up my game and add a few more items to my standbys. I’m a sucker for oatmeal, especially when it’s cold out. And since I always have blueberries on hand, this Blueberry Baked Oatmeal is perfect addition to our breakfast rotation….

Meat and Cheese Stromboli (1 of 2)

Meat and Cheese Stromboli

Consider this Meat and Cheese Stromboli the way I happily justify feeding pizza to my family twice in one week. It’s true that stromboli is merely pizza in rolled up form, but somehow I feel better calling it by another name if we’ve already reached our takeout pizza quotient for the week. (No, I didn’t…

Cheesy Chile Chicken Dip

Nothing says party like a bag of chips and this warm Cheesy Chile Chicken Dip! I have no problem admitting that I watch the Super Bowl primarily for the ads and the halftime entertainment. Very rarely do I have any investment in either participating team. But that doesn’t mean I’ll miss the opportunity to hang out…

Tequila Old Fashioned

Need a cocktail for your upcoming Super Bowl party? You can’t go wrong with this Tequila Old Fashioned. Full disclosure: I was inspired to recreate this recipe at my nine-year old’s birthday party.

Edamame Hummus

Edamame Hummus

Makeover your usual veggie dip with this protein-packed Edamame Hummus.  I think I should move to Italy. Or Spain. Actually any place where they practice mid-afternoon siestas or riposos (or just plain ol’ naps). You see, I have this terrible habit of getting suuuuuper sleepy right around the time the kids get home. Seems counterintuitive,…
