Buffalo Chicken Sliders

I've had this idea running thru my head for a while now - the idea of featuring all of our recipes that can be made in a 9x13 baking dish.  Everyone has one, and the recipes you can whip up in this common pan are numerous.  So this week we'll be featuring some new 9x13 recipes as well as reminding you of all of our previous 9x13 recipes. This post wouldn't be complete without mentioning our favorite 9x13 pan.  The Fiesta rectangle baker.  I truly truly love this pan.  It always washes up nice and has resisted chips … [Read more...]

Baja Beer Battered Fish Tacos // Rubios Copycat

I can still remember the first time I ate a fish taco.  It sounded terrible.  I was resistant to try it.  I was 14 years old, and I had traveled to San Diego, CA to visit my aunt.  She picked me up from the airport and insisted we stop at Rubio's.  All I can say is that it was love at first bite.  Years later I moved to San Diego to attend college, and stayed in southern California for nearly 15 years.  Rubio's was a staple.  My husband would pick it up every Saturday - and fish tacos were always my number one choice. … [Read more...]

Baskin-Robbins Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich

This post is sponsored by Baskin-Robbins. I have a 5 month old little boy.  He is so smiley and rolly polly and precious.  It's all I can do to not nibble him all day long.  When I was pregnant with him I MAJORLY craved Baskin-Robbins.  I sent my husband on late night runs ALL.THE.TIME.  So when Baskin-Robbins asked us if we wanted to try their new Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich there was no way I was going to say no. My little family made an evening of it - everyone got to choose their own warm cookie ice … [Read more...]

Super Bowl Foods

Some days calories don't matter. Birthday. Christmas. Thanksgiving. Super Bowl Sunday. (.... huh?) They are special days we set aside to hang out with friends and families. We catch up on our lives, laugh about old times and also, maybe, some cheering yelling and chest bumping. Of course we cannot do all of that with all of this (insert emoji finger pointing DOWN! ) Delicious FOOD. What would a party, or a holiday for that matter, be without food!?

Green Pancake and Chocolate Cherry Trailmix Lunch

My 4-year-old started preschool this year, so I'm a total newbie at this lunch-making business! Over the past year I had seen others using these PlanetBoxes and I knew I had to have one once the time came for me to become a legit mom. Soccer practice started the same week, so I reached all sorts of crazy levels of mommy hood that I'd never done before! I love the safety of stainless steel, the absence of plastic baggies (cost and environmental reasons), how easy it is to clean, how organized it keeps things, and I … [Read more...]

Sunbasket Giveaway

Today I want to share with you my experience with a new meal delivery service called Sunbasket.  These services are popping up - and I really like the concept.  Fresh ingredients and recipes delivered right to your door.  No meal planning, no shopping, and you get a home cooked meal at a reasonable price.  One thing that has turned me off about some of these services were to strange meals I would never be interested in eating - but I found Sunbasket's meals to be so appetizing!  So when they offered to let me try their … [Read more...]

California Turkey Sandwich // UP MOVE Jawbone

Last week I shared with you my desire to lose baby fat and how I was using the UP MOVE by Jawbone in this post. One of the meals I've been fixing is this delicious Kalua Pig recipe.

First the turkey sandwich.  I've mentioned before in the past I worked at a sandwich shop in college. It was the best job ever. Taught me some food skills, introduced me to … [Read more...]

The Rotisserie Chicken {Cooking Tip}

The Rotisserie Chicken is one of my secret weapons!  I use them as a shortcut to creating delicious meals without cooking a chicken.  I love to eat one of these for dinner with a side salad, but I love them even more as an ingredient in a delicious recipe.  The meat is perfect for soups, casseroles, enchiladas, salads and more!  My Costco sells them for $4.99 - and they are so good!  They are moist, they are flavorful, and cooked PERFECTLY.  When I make a Costco run I buy 2 or 3 along with other bulk items. When I … [Read more...]

Many people think that blenders are only for making green smoothies, but I'm here to tell you that … [Read more...]

Omelet In A Bag // Zwilling JA Henckels Cookware Giveaway

Years ago at a camping trip family reunion my aunt taught us how to make these omelets in a bag.  Sounds weird.  But trust me - they are amazing.  We were all so so skeptical and stood around the big pot of boiling water while our omelets cooked.  To our surprise we each slid a restaurant perfect omelet onto our paper plates. All you need are a few eggs, a few tablespoons of milk or water, add ins of your choice, a gallon sized freezer bag, and a pot of boiling water. Place your eggs and milk in the bag … [Read more...]

Chopped Pepperoni Salad // Ninja 2 in 1 review

There is a restaurant in San Diego called Sammy's Wood-fired Pizza.  While their pizza is good, the thing that I always look forward to eating there is their pepperoni salad.  It is one of those things that you think about after you've left the restaurant and crave for the next few days. Now that I no longer live in the San Diego area I had to re-create this salad to satisfy my craving.  Take my word for it - this is such a fun, fresh tasting, and yummy salad!  It pairs perfectly with a delivered pizza, or with … [Read more...]

Peach Cobbler Smoothie + Mommi Bottle

Here's something about me...for years I have typically fixed up a protein smoothie for breakfast. They are quick, easy and packed with good stuff. A chocolate peanut butter is my go-to and I'm full until lunch. Pour it in a cup, drop the kids to school, and off to errands. Exciting I know, but that's my morning! The only problem I have had, is that I can't continue this routine when pregnant. (And my cup has spilled a time or too.) Many protein powders have trace metallic contents that are not pregnancy safe (or kid … [Read more...]

A Doll Party: food for girls and dolls

Sydney was so funny about her food. She was VERY specific. She wanted Mac n Cheese-- Homemade Mac n Cheese--dirty cokes, and fruit! AND we had to make sure there was a plate for the dolls too!  Most of these dishes can already be found here, so I'm posting links to them to help you out : ) But First, I want to talk about this lil' Dirty Coke, more often called a "Dirty Diet Coke" which I must admit it does flow much nicer like than "dirty coke...however, diets aren't for me unless I want a screamin' headache later. … [Read more...]

Monday Muse – Anna

1. This Cake Carrier from World Market has so much character! It even has a latch to make sure the lid doesnt come off and you end up with cake all over your car while transporting it to the party. 2. These measuring cups are adorable. I love the colors and designs. Pier 1 Imports rarely disappoints. 3. Mason Jars are so hot right now.

For a FancySchmancy Easter Morning::

Hi, my name is Des. And I'm eat-out-aholic Hi Des I didn't always used to be like this. I used to be healthy, and happy in the kitchen. It all started about a month ago when we decided to move. It all happened rather quick. And well, I'd pack and clean till 6, then realize. whelp, its too late to make dinner.... Then I moved my kitchen, but realized, with 3 inch high piles of dust and crumbs in my cupboards that I couldn't up-pack my kitchen. SOO then it took a few days to clean my kitchen. even then I … [Read more...]

REPOSTS!

Every now and again we do these "re-posts" of old posts. This bloggity has been around since before food blogging was big, HOWEVER, it was a recipe blog with just purely recipes, hardly any pictures (if they were pictures, they were pretty pathetic). So while the pictures were sad the recipes were/are NOT! they are soooo delicioso we want you to now see it, maybe remind you of a recipe some of our faithful followers use to make. We are workin our way up that long ol' recipe index and fine tuning these recipes, including … [Read more...]

In The Mood For Chocolate?

I recently made 2 recipes from this blog and neither of them had pictures of our own so I snapped some. this scotch chocolate cake is the devil. I made it for a dinner with a small family- which left us with like a half a sheet cake. NOT GOOD. finally finished it off yesterday. It was hard work.   No bakes are a classic eh? We added some cadbury eggs for seasonal fun.     and These breadsticks are a staple. They are easy, fast (making bread is hardly ever fast, but these are!)  fluffy and … [Read more...]
