Snickers Coconut Caramel Cupcakes

It’s Friday! Hooray! And I am NOT showing you ice cream! Wait, what?? I know, it is a miracle that I actually baked a dessert. Like in the oven, HOT temps people. Not the below freezing ones I have been hiking in lately. Trust me, it was hard to actually get my brain to think […]

Cheesy Cajun Fries with Grilled Corn Guacamole, Bacon and Fried Eggs

Let’s just start putting drippy fried eggs on everything. K? Oh wait, I have already been doing that. I really don’t know why, but every other recipe I want to make I think “oh, I should put an egg on top of that”, or, “oh, I think an egg stuffed in there would be good”, or ” […]

Peanut Butter Banana Frozen Yogurt Pops with Chocolate Drizzle

You guys know what’s really weird? I absolutely HATE being cold, but yet I continue to make frozen treats. Frozen treats that when I photograph, make me shiver. For some reason every time I shoot any kind of ice cream my hands end up molding the ice cream into a cone, or sandwiching it between […]

Sweet sweet summer time food you should probably, no absolutely, make.

Sweet, sweet summer time food you should probably, no absolutely, make! So people, it’s official. Memorial Day, the (unofficial) start to summer is finally here! Good God almighty, hallelujah! (I have listened to way too much Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw these last couple days) The past four days of weather have been full on summer bliss!  Granted […]

Hot Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwich.

I told you there was more ice cream coming…. Except this one I can’t take credit for. Ok, well I did make it, but the idea behind it was my picky no vegetable, no fruit, no fish-eating teenage brother. Malachi or Kai or even Malachi John as I call him when he is annoying the […]

BBQ Grilled Corn, Jalapeño and Peach Quinoa Salad.

Please someone, I need some help. No, not with my mental state, although some people may argue this. And no not with my current corn, jalapeño or ice cream obsessions. No I like those just the way they are and to be honest they are probably just getting going. I am thinking they are not […]

Peanut Butter Burgers with Slim Jim Fries and Chocolate Malted Milkshake.

Also known as the peanutburger. What’s a peanutburger you ask? Well, if you live on the west side of Cleveland, Ohio than you probably already know the answer to this one. But for those of you from any other part of the world, let me tell you. Bearden’s is a diner style restaurant straight out of the 50’s. […]

Corn Fritters with Coconut Whipped Cream and Sweet Honey Bourbon Syrup.

Today the pictures say it all. Which is why I have a total of ten. Yes, ten. Remember I have a problem with decisions and I just could not decide which photos to use. Originally there was eighteen, so give me some credit. At least I got rid of eight, but trust me it was hard. […]

Caprese Quinoa Grilled Stuffed Mushrooms with Balsamic Glaze.

I did something that made me very happy this weekend. I made my first caprese themed recipe of the year. Ok, fine I guess it’s not my first since last August. I did make these awesome Roasted Asparagus Caprese Melts with a Fried Egg, but it’s been a few months and fresh spring produce is finally starting […]

Sweet Honey Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread Biscuits

Today we are talking Jalapeño’s and Cornbread and Cheddar AND Honey. The first time I ever made cornbread I think I was eleven or twelve. We were having a family party, I think for the 4th of July. My parents always had family parties. Out house in Rocky River on the West side of Cleveland, OH […]

  • Excited to be finally sharing a peek into The Studio Barn Kitchen today with @kitchenaidusa. This post has been such a long time coming, but I can’t wait for you all to see the kitchen! We worked closely with KitchenAid to design a studio kitchen full of appliances that are built to last. Appliances that consistently turn out delicious food, and help perfect the overall kitchen workflow. Head to HBH to see the full reveal! Link in Profile. #sponsored #MarksofMaking
  • Pan-Fried Feta with Peppered Honey. The perfect (EASY) appetizer that everyone loves --> salty feta cheese, coated in bread crumbs and pan-fried to golden perfection. That crispy fried layer surrounding the entire block of feta? It's the BEST. Drizzle with peppery honey, top with cherry tomatoes and eat with baked pita chips. Simple summer food, but so delicious. Make it this weekend. Recipe linked in profile. #eatingfortheinsta #eeeeeats  #feedfeed #instayum #howisummer
  • Berry and Cream Cheese Croissant French Toast Bake --> the only thing you need to make this weekend. This one is a tried and true favorite and the best weekend breakfast. Flaky croissants, sweet jam, fresh berries, and pockets of cream cheese are layered and baked together. It's indulgent, but sometimes you just have to go for it. Make it for Dad on Sunday. Trust me, you'll be the favorite child. Recipe linked in profile. #f52grams #buzzfeast #imsomartha #eatingfortheinsta #eeeeeats #recipevideo
  • Chicken Souvlaki Bowls with Garlicky Fries. The Greek-inspired “street food” bowl that you need in your life this week --> grilled Greek marinated chicken skewers, served bowl style with grilled zucchini, homemade garlic fries (oh my gosh sooo good), Tzatziki (also SO GOOD), and fresh summer cherry tomatoes. These bowls are the simplest to throw together, but still so delicious. Promise. You NEED this in your life. So dramatic, but true.
