Fancy Deviled Egg Flight

  Deviled eggs are always a crowd pleaser, but did you ever think of all the different toppings you can add or mix into them? I wanted to create a flight of deviled eggs.

Panzanella

Panzanella salad is probably one of my favorites to have anytime during the year. It’s such a versatile salad in which you can add grilled vegetables or roasted veggies. To make it a little bit healthier I went ahead and used a whole wheat sprouted bread. It’s a super easy lunch or dinner to get…

Most people know about a traditional potato au gratin dish, but I wanted to give this classic a twist and add some fennel.  The results were delicious.

Brussels Sprout and Bacon Pizza

We love to eat Brussels sprouts in our home pretty much any time of the year. I wasn’t a big fan as a child but I’m obsessed now or maybe it’s because I use bacon fat to cook my Brussels sprouts in. Whatever the case may be we love to eat it and why not…

I love making cupcakes. There are so many types that can be created.  The sky is not the limit. I know my kids love smores, so I ran that idea through them about a smores cupcake. I know there are different types of smores cupcakes out there but I wanted mine to stand out. The…

Warm Pumpkin Salad

Pumpkins are a staple for fall decor and food. I love everything pumpkin.  I’m that person that will have everything pumpkin as soon as October hits. I love to incorporate it in my cooking. I’m lucky enough that my store carries per cut and peeled pieces.  I like to make warm salads during the cooler…

Kerrygold Cheesy Gnocchi

Weekdays can be pretty crazy with kids in school or with work schedules.  This is a simple dish for those hectic nights.  My kids love this dish.  They say it reminds them of Mac and cheese but with gnocchi. Traditionally people make this dish with peas and bacon. But I wanted to switch it up…

Jacked sweet potato quesadilla

Sweet potatoes are such a great alternative to potatoes and have so many health benefits. I love making French fries and burgers with sweet potatoes, but since my family loves a good Mexican meal I went ahead and made a sweet potato quesadilla. It was a hit we all loved it. Give it a try,…

Sweet, simple, and healthy, these homemade apple chips have become a fall staple.  It’s hard to believe that fall is finally here. Pass on the potato chips and instead try this easy and healthy idea: apple chips. Sure, you can buy apple chips at the supermarket, but if you look at the ingredients they are full…
