Haute & Healthy Living Roasted Garlic & Feta Chicken Burgers There’s something about the smell of garlic roasting in the oven that just makes me so hungry! And then when you add the taste of oozy cheese, it’s just straight up hard to resist. I introduce you to one of my favourite burgers with just the right combination of roasted garlic and oozy cheese. I originally made these for Father’s day one year and they were a huge hit, so I thought I would bring this famous recipe out again just in time for BBQ season. The amazing thing about these burgers is that they also incorporate spinach, which not only adds moisture but also an extra dose of nutrients! AND they’re made with extra lean ground chicken.

Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair. I know it’s not fair. I know that now you’re craving cinnamon rolls, and cream cheese frosting and chili fries and hot dogs. I am too… and I already ate half of this warm bread. Root Beer Float Cupcakes Awhile back I did one of the darnedest things. You may recall. I made this root beer float. And I’m still trying to decide if it was the best decision of my life, or the catalyst to having nightmares when I envision warm, sandy beaches and waves crashing along the shore.

I love eating pie, I love making pie, I love nearly all vartities of pie! The only problem with pie is that the crust always seems to get soggy before we can eat it all — there are just 2 of us you know. So today — as I was contemplating whether or not I should make a pie (and knowing that my husband would definitly want me to make a pie) — I decided to try something new…

Alicia’s Awesome Crab Rangoon I invented this recipe many years ago… when I was in high school. I loved eating crab rangoon at Asian restaurants, and of course there were none of those in my hometown of under 1,000. Like a lot of recipes I come up with, this one was invented out of necessity. Roy G. Biv Smoothies I’ve had a few requests over the last few weeks for some smoothie recipes because I let it slip that Betsy and I generally just have a big smoothie for breakfast everyday. Turns out our daily smoothie recipe is a mix between yellow, red, and indigo, but that’ll make more sense to you later. Smoothies can be so varied I really struggled for awhile on how to present a wide spectrum of recipes in one post. That was, of course, until I saw a guy riding a bike last weekend with a rainbow sticker on his backpack.
