I’m not sure what technically makes an egg on toast kinda thing a “Benedict.” I call anything with a poached egg and some kind of protein on top of a bread-like vessel a Benedict. So here’s the one I made for breakfast when I had some smoked salmon I needed to use and some farm … More Quick Smoked Salmon Benedict (ish)
Ok, I know I don’t usually blog about desserts/baked goods, but this treat was blogworthy for sure. My sister and I both saw the same thing or Facebook recently showing these cookies, and we already had plans to get together over Memorial Day Weekend. And the kids saw it too. It’s fun to be like, … More S’mores Cookies
Yay three day weekend! Plenty of opportunities to cook and eat good foods. The weather for our gathering yesterday was iffy, so I didn’t count on grilling. Instead, I did an all-indoor-made spread. Starting with one of my favorites – a spinach and artichoke dip. I make this different ways, and it’s very easy to … More Simple Dips and Baked BBQ Chicken

Tired from a loooong work week, I knew I didn’t really want to go out and wait for a table, as we didn’t plan ahead for … More Cinco de Mayo at Home!
I love fresh corn and it’s about that time of year for it to start getting plentiful in the grocery stores. I prefer grilling it, but I was trying something new last night that I thought would work better in the oven. It didn’t, but I think I know how it will, and so this … More Fresh Corn and Bacon!
I probably don’t need to tell you about the coolness of quinoa. In short, it’s like crunchy little rice nubs that fill you with whole grain nutrients. And it was on my menu last night – the tricolor kind. I had this idea to do salmon over a Caesar salad with homemade dressing. I think … More Salmon and Quinoa
