Les "Empadas de Frango com Catupiry" Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins. We were at soccer practice when a storm rolled in.
In Florida, the skies can go from clear to hurricane-like in 5 minutes. And it doesn’t just rain; the heavens open up and cover you in blankets of water. The storm had its way with us and we were soaked from head to toe when my three boys and I ran to our car…which wouldn’t start.
Roost - Roost: A Simple Life. Velouté de fèves & chèvre frais. L’été dernier je me suis dis que manger des aliments verts -oui vous savez, les trucs qu’on appelle « légumes » – ça ne nous ferait pas de mal…enfin je crois… bon ok je triche c’est un féculent :P Alors j’ai fait ce petit velouté (oui chez moi les « légumes », ça passe toujours mieux mixé, allez savoir pourquoi…) Du coup, je me suis dis que par ces journées froides et pluvieuses d’hiver, il serait idéal pour vous réchauffer.

Make Your Own Salad Dressing. Making your own salad dressings at home is one of those skills that's super easy and delicious.
This time of year is an excellent time to start eating more greens in your diet, so here's three easy salad dressing recipes to help spruce up your veggies. We're going to make: homemade ranch dressing, cilantro lime vinaigrette, and our own homemade honey mustard dressing. Keep in mind that you can add any herbs or spices you prefer.

Mix all ingredients together and drizzle on your favorite salad. Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette makes around 2 cups Needed: 6 ounces olive oil, 3-4 tablespoons chopped cilantro, juice from 1 lime. A Beautiful Mess. Hi!
It's Mandi from Making Nice in the Midwest. As I've learned more about not killing my houseplants, I've gained the courage to fill my home with more and more of them (so much so that I'm running out of room!). My one-and-a-half-year-old kiddo has finally learned how to "no touch" the houseplants, which has given me the guts to employ the use of a plant stand, with minimal fear of potentially having to clean up dirt from the floor. (I'm hoping we're completely past that stage! Please don't burst my bubble!) This project was really quick and easy, as far as furniture building goes, since I decided to use brackets in lieu of attempting any wood joinery techniques.
Pumpkin Pie Milkshake Recipe. This milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.
A Beautiful Mess. 3 Pie Inspired Pop-Tart Recipes. Homemade peanut butter cups. Everybody likes getting candy, even if they are (ahem) maybe a bit too old to be Trick or Treating.
(If that's even possible.) Here's a cute idea to dress up a sweet candy gift for a friend or coworker, preset your candy in decorative jars! Simply use mason jars (or other canning jars) and cover the tops with colorful fabrics. We love soft pretzels! Elsie and I always loved going to the mall with our mom growing up, even before we loved fashion.
Our mom would always get us a soft pretzel at Auntie Ann's to share and it was always a fun treat. I still sometimes get a soft pretzel when I'm at the mall, as it reminds me of all those trips with our mom. Plus, soft pretzels are AWESOME! So we thought it would be fun to try and make our own at home. We made original and cinnamon sugar soft pretzels plus two kinds of sweet buttery dipping sauces.
Soft Pretzels makes 8-12. Needed: 1 1/2 cups warm water, 1 1/8 teaspoon active dry yeast, 2 tablespoon sugar, 1 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1 cup bread flour, 3 cups (all-purpose) flour, 3-4 tablespoon melted butter, course sea salt, cinnamon and sugar, 1 cup warm water, 1 tablespoon baking soda. Pumpkin Pie Recipe : Paula Deen. Directions Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place 1 piece of pre-made pie dough down into a (9-inch) pie pan and press down along the bottom and all sides. Pinch and crimp the edges together to make a pretty pattern. Put the pie shell back into the freezer for 1 hour to firm up. Fit a piece of aluminum foil to cover the inside of the shell completely. For the filling, in a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with a hand mixer. Pour the filling into the warm prepared pie crust and bake for 50 minutes, or until the center is set.
Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes. I think about food a lot.
Maybe too much? Is that possible? I cook food, I eat food, I read about food, I take pictures of food - I think it really consumes my life.
