Crabtastic Nachos
Crabtastic Nachos

Who doesn’t love a good plate of nachos? I fondly remember my college days where the epitome of a celebration was centered around a keg and piles and piles of nachos. I went to college in Indianapolis and every weekend we would find ourselves huddled around giant plates of chicken nachos from a little random […]

It’s that time of year again when people prepare to chow down on hot wings, nachos and endless dips all in the name of football. There will be countless Super Bowl parties this coming Sunday but I couldn’t even tell you which teams are playing. I’m not a football fan. I’m not going to be […]

Bruschetta 5 Ways, Whole Foods Event & a GIVEAWAY!
Bruschetta 5 Ways, Whole Foods Event & a GIVEAWAY!

Holiday cooking makes me think cocktail parties. Cocktail parties make me think appetizers and, in my world, appetizers always have to include a bruschetta! Bruschetta is traditionally a grilled piece of bread rubbed with garlic and drizzled with olive oil and can have any number and combinations of toppings. Everything from the traditional tomato basil […]

The thought of coming up with adorable Halloween treats stresses me out. I am not a crafty person when it comes to food. Sure, I can make it look appetizing and taste delicious, but making it look like creatures of the netherworld is not my forté. For weeks I’ve been trying to come up with […]

Sweet & Spicy Thai Martini

I’ve been missing from my blog. And I’ve been really missing my blog! Last spring I worked hard to be diligent about posting regularly but somehow life has caught up with me. I guess it happens sometimes. The reality is that I am just one person. And this one person has an awful lot on […]

Chocolate Raspberry and Lemon Ginger Parfaits

  What is a party without a delicious dessert? In my opinion, it’s not a party at all! So, for my wine party I couldn’t have just one; I had to have two! I wanted a dessert that would pair well with red wine and another to complement white. Also, since I was making so […]

Mini Foccacia Sandwiches
Mini Foccacia Sandwiches

  In keeping with my “party food” theme, I knew I just had to do a mini sandwich for my wine party. I knew there was no way I was going to take all that time making little tea sandwiches with the crusts cut off so I went the Italian way. Besides, since I’d already […]

Greek Style Meatballs in Tomatoes and Eggplant

My boyfriend and I went to Freeport, Bahamas a year ago over Christmas holiday. There was a big cold front that came rolling in and we were not prepared for it! We desperately needed jackets and gloves but of course it was the Bahamas and there were none to be found. Needless to say, we […]

Deconstructed Sushi Bites
Deconstructed Sushi Bites

  Sushi is one of my favorite foods to eat and probably my least favorite food to make. I find it difficult for several reasons: A. I’m not a sushi chef, B. It’s so difficult to roll tightly, and C. It’s so much more fun to watch someone experienced create a masterpiece! Nevertheless, being that […]
