Crawfish Jambalaya

Let me take you on a trip down memory lane. I took french in school from middle school through high school and even for a year in college. When I was in middle school – I think 7th or 8th grade, my french teacher took us on a field trip to a restaurant for lunch…

Chili Mac & Cheese

Happy Saturday! I’ve said it multiple times this season and I’m going to say it again – this weather is crazy. It was spring like weather just a week ago and then yesterday it was snowy and the weather forecast for this Tuesday is a potential major snow storm. Part of me would love a…

Photo Challenge: A Good Match

Happy Friday! This week went by pretty quick, which is a-okay in my book. I just hope the weekend doesn’t fly by like it usually does. Last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post came at the perfect time. The challenge was “A Good Match” prompting participants to share any photo that they thought was…

Creamy Shrimp & Tomato Pasta

Today I’m sharing some food photos of a super easy recipe – a pasta dish with a light cream sauce, shrimp, and tomatoes. I’m not calling this a real recipe post because I don’t have a link for you to the exact recipe I used and I have no measurements. I can’t find the original…

Bread Bowl Beef Stew

Recently one of my friends shared that he has a friend who constantly likes and shares Tasty videos on Facebook and he asked them if they ever make any of these things to which his friend replied no. Well I have! I think I’ve only made two things that I saw on Tasty, but this…

Chocolate Pretzel Heart Bark

Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re celebrating with a significant other, your girlfriends, alone or not celebrating at all it’s always nice to have a little sweet treat. 2 years ago I made heart shaped pie cookies¬†and last year I shared heart shaped ravioli that I bought from my local Italian shop. So recently I was…

Football Brownies

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! It doesn’t quite feel like Super Bowl to me. Maybe because I haven’t heard a lot of hype about it lately what with all the other news going on in the country seemingly every single day. Nonetheless I wanted to make a little Super Bowl themed food but I’ve been so…

Bacon & Egg Breakfast Pastry

For someone whose favorite meal is decidedly not breakfast, I seem to share a lot of breakfast food posts on here. Maybe because breakfast foods tend to be a little easier and I’m all about easy recipes. Today I’m sharing a bacon & egg breakfast pastry. I got the idea from Pinterest a long time…

January 2017 Favorites

It sounds so weird to say (January) 2017 favorites! I can’t believe we’ve already gone through a month of the year already. Although at the same time this month has been so tiring with work and the daily chaos going on in the country. But let’s talk about something happy like things that put a…

Influenster: Resolution VoxBox

I got my second VoxBox from Influenster yesterday and I wanted to show you guys what I got this time around! If you don’t know how Influenster works, they pick you to send certain products to based on your social media impact, presence on their site (answering product questions for other members, reviewing products etc.)…

Cafe Venezia

I love discovering new and/or new to me places to eat. Around the holidays I went to¬†Cafe Venezia for the first time with my family though my parents had gone a few weeks earlier for a holiday dinner with their friends. They raved about it so we went for a pre- New Year’s dinner. According…

Mooyah

Mooyah, a burger chain, opened up near where I work a few months ago. I had never even heard of Mooyah before this one opened, but I looked up locations on their website and saw that they have locations in quite a few states and a few places internationally. There are a ton of them…
