Blueberry Limeade Cupcakes

2013-07-03_BlueberryLimeadeCupcakes-300px

There is a (very popular) local bakery that has a buy one, get one free offer on cupcakes on Mondays.  A few friends of mine brought it to my attention a few months ago, so I had no choice but to head on over to the bakery one week to give their cupcakes a try….

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Don’t you love that moment when your spouse (or kids, friends, you get the idea) eats a dish containing a food that they supposedly “don’t like” and have a food epiphany? As soon as someone tells me that they don’t care for a particular food, I consider it my personal mission to create a dish…

Garlic Scape Taco Sauce

When it comes to cooking, I tend to keep things simple this time of year.  Once our CSA starts up in the late spring, I find myself doing much less grocery shopping.  Instead, we do our best to eat the fresh produce that we get from our CSA, supplemented with a few essentials that I…

Cucumber Bean Salsa

I love the spring… But, I also find it can be a difficult time of year to cook.  You see, by this time of the year, the weather is turning warm, and I am starting to crave lots of fresh fruits and veggies. The problem is that none of those fruits and veggies that I so…

Layered Chipotle Hummus and Guacamole Dip

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. My husband loves telling people that his wife plays fantasy football, but he doesn’t. Secretly, I think he enjoys it. While I certainly enjoy watching the game (especially if the Ravens are playing!), I…

Gazpacho

Last weekend, my husband and I watched the movie Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.  How’s that for a Monday morning blog post intro? It’s relevant, though… I promise! You see, we have a few friends who have done the whole “juicing” diet thing. Some have had good results, others have ended up not feeling so…

Fresh Garden Salsa

I would love to say that we have lots of ripe, juicy tomatoes in our garden at the moment, but that’s not the case.  It seems that the hot, dry weather we have had lately is working against me. And, of course, the groundhog that has learned to climb the fence isn’t really helping, either….

Vanilla Lime Pound Cake

Sometimes it’s best to keep things simple! I had agreed to make dessert for Mother’s Day, and I had a lot of grandiose ideas of what I would make. I tossed quite a few ideas around in my head, and spent about two hours pouring over cookbooks and blog posts trying to settle on the…

If you’re interested in participating, be sure to check out all of the details! So, since I’ve had grains and legumes on the brain with…

Game Day Guacamole (WFMW)

2011-01-26_Guacamole_WFMW-250px

There’s a pretty big football game coming up next weekend. The Super Bowl… You may have heard of it?

So, this week I thought I’d share my quick and easy go-to recipe for guacamole. No game day party is complete without some chips and guac, right?

I’ve mentioned before that my husband and I are big fans of Chipotle Mexican Grill. We especially love their guacamole, so I’ve been on a quest to come up with a recipe that rivals theirs. Every time I make guacamole at home, my hubby determines whether it is “Chipotle good” or not… And, I am happy to announce that this recipe has gained his approval.
