Toasted S’more Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream.

I hope you guys don’t mind. I am on a huge ice cream kick. It’s HUGE. My freezer is overflowing and I am not even done, not even close. My ice cream maker has been churning practically every day this week and my hands are permanently frozen. You’d think it was 90 degrees here, humid and […]

You guys, I am such a mess. Well technically right now I am very clean, but that is only because I have not started cooking/baking yet. Yesterday before I got in the shower I glanced in the mirror and just kind of laughed at myself. I mean I had food all over my clothes, my […]

Grilled Corn and Chipotle Pesto Pizza with Queso Fresco.

It’s official. I caught the Summer bug. Hard. I know it is only May 15th, but yesterday it felt like Summer! Alright, that is a major exaggeration. The temps only reached the low 60’s, but for around here that is extremely warm! Granted if the sun is shinning it can definitely feel like the 70’s at […]

Creamy Chocolate Soft Serve Avocado Ice Cream.

Lately I have been up to my eyeballs in avocados. And I am not complaining. Although, I do think I have slight problem. I can thank the grocery store, they fueled the problem,last week they sold avocados for only a dollar! One dollar for avocados is CHEAP for around here. Honestly, in one week I […]

Sweet Thai Shrimp Curry with Peanut Noodles.

You guys, I just don’t get it. Sometimes I try to understand. Really I do, but most of the time my mind just wonders to “Oh, should I make shrimp and put it with noodles or bake cookies and stuff them with something crazy? Or wait, maybe I should make some grilled chicken and smother it […]

Spinach Artichoke and Brie Crepes with Sweet Honey Sauce

So I realized two things over the weekend. First, I have become a pro at making crepes. The first time I made crepes they turned out highly sub-par and I am pretty sure half of them tore and the other were highly deformed. Highly deformed means large holes. Large holes means the fillings WILL leak […]

  • Fig Dark and Stormy. A touch sweet, citrusy, and warming. Basically the perfect September cocktail with a good amount of rum (bourbon would be SO good too) and topped with ginger beer. Recipe on HBH today - linked in profile. #f52grams #buzzfeast #autumnrecipes #fall #CLkitchen
  • Spiced Pecan Apple Cider Doughnut Cake. Kind of tastes like an old school apple cider doughnut…but in cake form. It's layered with a buttery, cinnamony apple pecan streusel. And real true secret? A ripple of sweet maple throughout the center of the cake. It's beyond good and best enjoyed while still warm, with a steaming mug of coffee…or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sooo, the perfect thing to bake this weekend. Recipe on HBH - linked in profile. #f52grams #buzzfeast #autumnrecipes #fall #CLkitchen
  • Creamy, buttery Pesto Polenta with Thyme-Roasted Mushrooms and Chickpeas. The polenta is made perfectly buttery with @landolakesktchn butter with olive oil and sea salt, and swirled with pesto. The wild mushrooms and chickpeas are slowly roasted together with fresh thyme and garlic. Put the two together and you have the perfect dinner to slowly ease into the cooler days ahead. Recipe on HBH – grab the link in my profile.. #sponsored
  • French Onion and Apple Grilled Cheese. I mean? Apples and gouda? Caramelized onions and crispy prosciutto? Fresh thyme and sage? It’s all of the best fall ingredients in a cheesy sandwich. Maybe a little unusual, but something about the savory onions and the sweet apples, together with cheese really works. It’s kind of sweet, kind of savory, and kind of really good. Promise.
