Who’d guess that the first day of summer is still a few weeks away? Phew. It’s been pretty toasty around here these past few days. As hot as a… Wanna finish that sentence? We hear weather related colloquialisms all the time here in the south. Like…
I was looking for something light and refreshing to go with chicken salad when I came across a recipe for fruit salsa . I always have fruit on hand, so I modified it a bit to match what was in my kitchen. I’ve taken this to two get-togethers so far and it’s been a hit both times.

I love parfaits. They are such pretty things to make, with all kinds of possibilities from what ingredients you are going to layer to what glasses you will serve them in.

This parfait is made up of two creamy puddings - one chocolate, one peanut butter.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip It’s time for a little confession. I realize this may get me shunned (especially in my hometown of Pittsburgh!), but….I don’t like football. I don’t like to watch it, I never liked playing football with my friends, I don’t even like playing catch with a football.
Rocky Road Chocolate Cake, MyRecipes.com When you think of your slow cooker , these foods most likely immediately come to mind: roasts, chilis, soups, stews, dips, and fall-off-the-bone meat. A slow cooker is a foodie's dream come true, as you can infuse a medley of flavors and deliciousness into a meal just by leaving the Crock-Pot on all day while you're at work or chasing after the kids. Then when you're getting ready for dinner, all you have to do is open the lid, stir in a couple more fresh ingredients, and serve. Imagine enjoying a meal that was able to simmer for eight full hours, bringing out all the flavors and/or tenderizing the meat so you don't even need a knife to cut it.

June 22, 2010 When I was young, rainbow Jello would always be one of the offerings on the dessert table. I used to peel the layers of Jello apart and eat them one by one, my favourite being cherry. I have a lot of fond memories of rainbow Jello, but like most things from my childhood, rainbow Jello slowly disappeared without much fanfare.

Apple Pie Egg Rolls I saw one of the Food Network stars making apple chimichangas and thought I had to have some for myself. I bought flour tortillas and apples, and then I used the flour tortillas for tacos.

This holiday season was a week shorter than usual and boy, oh boy, am I feeling it. Three days before Christmas and I’m not done shopping. Three days before Christmas and I’ve barely put a dent in my planned holibaking list. I mean, really… I haven’t even made a single cookie! My brain keeps screaming, “but I’m not ready!”
