Have I ever told you that I hate tomatoes and onions? I'm sure I have. Because of this aversion I have always steered clear of the classic seven layer dip, but as I've gotten older I've become a little braver and now eat some dishes with tomato and onion. When I tasted seven layer dip I was floored and I loved it! How could I love tomatoes? I don't know, but I know that seven layer dip is about as delicious as it comes.

One of my loves is soft cheese. I love goat cheese, feta and blue cheese, and add one of these to pretty much anything and I'm in! Soft cheeses was honestly what I missed the VERY most during pregnancy. Darn those un-pasturized delicious cheeses! Bring on the blue cheese burgers, greek salads, goat cheese pizzas, and of course - blue cheese slaw! I created this delicious slaw using my mini kitchenaid stand mixer and the fresh prep attachment. There is such a difference between a . . .
One of my husband's favorite desserts is a pizzookie from BJ's restaurant. A warm cookie straight out of the oven that is topped with ice cream? Yes please! With that in mind I wanted to create a skillet cookie at home for him for Father's Day. The secret to those crispy edges and soft center in a skillet cookie is melting your butter before creating your recipe. I know it sounds crazy - because melted butter in a regular cookie will create pancake flat cookies. But melted butter in . . .

It is officially, unofficially summer! The other day I whipped up a pot of summer corn chowder and thought I would share with you all this delicious way to toss in lots of summer produce. Corn on the cob is one of my favorite summer foods - but serving plates of boiled corn gets a little bit boring during the warm months. I have a few ideas up my sleeve for savoring this delicious summer food, like this corn chowder and my sweet corn salad. Chowder For Beginners I know it is easy to be . . .
I grew up with a family that loved to hunt and fish and camp. I have really fond memories of fishing with my dad and then cooking up our catch for dinner. Some have an aversion to sea food, but I kind of adore it - especially salmon. It is packed with healthy omegas and leaves you satisfied without feeling like you ate a brick. Salmon with a Kick I've been making this recipe every since I was a newlywed. It's fast and tasty, which is kind of my motto. The combination of the flaky salmon, . . .
Skewers are one of our favorite dinners! These rainbow steak skewers are really a staple at our house, and they are such a great way to eat the rainbow and your veggies! My mother-in-law gave me the greatest tip when it comes to cooking skewered food - skewer all of the one veggie or protein on one skewer. That way you can cook them evenly without burning the onions while cooking the steak. This way you can remove items sooner or later during your grill session and everything will come out . . .
I don't know about you - but pancakes are a favorite around my house. My boys all LOVE pancakes and ask for them morning, noon, and night. As a kid I also loved a good pancake. My mom loves to tell the story about how I consumed only pancakes and hotdogs for the first 3 years of my life. I still like pancakes, but a few hot dogs per year is all I can handle. Homemade Mini Pancakes I was inspired to create this recipe after spending a small fortune on packages of store-bought frozen . . .
I get a lot of questions about what kind of camera or lens I use to take my food pictures, so I thought I'd spill the beans about what is in my camera bag. My wish list is longer than my arm, but these are my go-to's. 1. Camera Body When it comes to a camera body all of us here at Oh So use a Cannon 70D or 80D. The camera has some really nice features including wifi, a touch screen, and really great video quality. Canon EOS 80D Digital SLR Camera 2. Lenses As far as lenses, I . . .
Growing up my mom would make these butterscotch pull apart on Christmas morning and on Easter morning. They were always a perfect perfect special addition to her egg soufflé. Make-Ahead Breakfast I love to serve these for brunches and baby showers too! They are a make ahead food, so you aren't scrambling during the hustle bustle, but end up with a delicious dish. Use frozen rolls as a base. I prefer the Rhodes brand, but have found them difficult to find these days. They really are . . .
