Sauces and Dips

Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple Salsa

We usually do a large firework display in our culdesac with friends and neighbors for Independence Day. This year might be a little less fancy as we weren’t able to get any really good fireworks from the next state over. Instead, I’m going to let […]

Black Bean and Corn Salsa

Black Bean and Corn Salsa

Gimme a huge scoop of this black bean and corn salsa and I’m instantly transported into a beach chair with my feet in the ocean fronting the Riviera Maya. So colorful, and SO extremely delicious, this black bean and corn salsa is the perfect compliment […]

Kalamata Green Olive Tapenade

Kalamata Green Olive Tapenade

So many delicious things come in small little bowls. Olives are one of my favorite snacks and I put them in sauces and dishes quite often since they have healthy fats and taste so darn good! I use olives and their brine as a salt […]

Chocolate Dessert Hummus

Chocolate Dessert Hummus

Happy New Year! I’m so excited… my awesome hubby gave me a new camera for Christmas to replace the one I’d been using that’s 10 years (or more??) old and starting to be a bit dated in functionality. My new camera has a neat food […]

Roasted Salsa Verde

Roasted Salsa Verde

I’m beginning to question the sanity of having such a large garden. I do really enjoy gardening and all beautiful fresh edible things that it produces.  The catch is that during “harvest” time it takes up a lot of my free time to preserve the […]

Pizza Awesome Sauce

Pizza Awesome Sauce

Happy hump day!  I’m in a midweek scurry to get things yet to be accomplished off my to-do list. I’ve had a winter project list that’s been in dire need of completion now that spring is merely a few weeks away (or so I’m hoping). Paint […]

Chile Con Queso

Chile Con Queso

This bowl of cheesy awesomeness…Chile con Queso was my go-to appetizer for no less than three gatherings this holiday season among family and friends. It is the ideal blend of creaminess and spice with a little sneaky veggie value thrown in for good measure. Sautéing a combination […]

Ricotta Spinach Artichoke Dip

Ricotta Spinach Artichoke Dip

I have a confession to make.  I’m having an affair. An ooey-gooey, steamy, dirty and  delicious love affair with this ricotta spinach artichoke dip.  It’s bordering on inappropriate with how often I’ve courted and indulged my taste buds with this dip in the past few weeks. No […]

Tomato Bacon Jam

Tomato Bacon Jam

I can’t wait to go camping this weekend!!!   I am normally excited for camping adventures but this weekend is bound to be full of shenanigans as we’re meeting up with some extended family that we haven’t seen in quite some time.  My apologies to the […]

Plum Pepper Chutney over Grilled Pork Chops

Plum Pepper Chutney over Grilled Pork Chops

I swear I must have been a prepper in a past life. My husband too for that matter.  Lately he’s all about doing/fixing/building/repurposing things for ourselves when he can and has decided to take up blacksmithing as a hobby. I am highly supportive of creative physical hobbies that also happen […]
