Scrambled Eggs

For breakfast eggs I’m pretty simple: fried with a runny yolk (over easy) or slow cooked scrambled with sea salt – no pepper.  I cannot stand runny whites, or dried scrambled though.  I will feed the whole thing to the dog.  Also, if my over easy eggs have a cooked yolk – right to the dog it goes…so maybe I’m not that simple, or easy… … When my brother gave…

Magnolia Bakery’s Famous Banana Pudding

I’ve been craving banana pudding for weeks. Not sure where it came from but it’s all I want for dessert. But-do you ever crave something, like really crave it for a week and then when you finally get it, it’s just not that good? This banana pudding was definitely not one of those cravings. It was just as good as I was expecting and definitely hit the spot. When I…

Watermelon Ice Cubes

So I’ve shared it a few times but I love Whispering Angel pink wine.  I love sitting outside and sipping on it but honestly – I don’t love it warm, I actually don’t like it at all. I’ve been experimenting with different ways to keep it chilled while outside on a hot summer evening.  Ice waters down the deliciousness too much.  Frozen grapes were ok but I didn’t like the…

Blackened Fish Tacos

    Last night I made fish tacos for the second time ever, and they turned out fabulous! P and I have been trying to limit the amount of refined sugar and flour we’re eating so we thought fish tacos on corn tortillas would satisfy the urge for tacos while staying healthy.   I picked out really fresh fish from my local Whole Foods and ingredients to make my own salsa and red…

Moving…

I’ve been a bad girl.  Very bad. No posting for too long. But it’s for a good reason – – We’ve moved! Well we are in the process of moving.  Most of our stuff is in our new house but there’s still a few car loads we need to bring over from my brother-in-law’s where we temporarily lived for 7 months.  We have had a few fights with our cable/internet…

Tomato Mozz Skewers

This obviously isn’t a brand new idea but it’s a good one! Fresh tomato and fresh mozzarella are a no brainer during the summer but I saw these teeny tiny little mozz balls and cherry tomatos that went perfectly together and couldn’t resist making a cute little app.  They are so easy to put together and people love to pop ’em in during a cocktail party or get together.  They…

Yes Way Rose!

  I love rosé or as I usually call it pink wine.  For me there’s not much better than sitting outside during the first warm and beautiful evenings of spring while sipping on a glass of cold rosé.  Here are a few tips for picking out a nice rosé and my favorite pinks wines. Rosés can range from the palest pink blush to really vivid almost red. The color doesn’t necessarily tell you…

Aw-Shucks Style Corn

Forth of July is this weekend and if you’re looking for a way to dress up your corn on the cob – I have the perfect recipe for you.  I first tried this type of corn when I was in college and I fell in love.  Since then when I have corn on the cob it’s either plain or Aw-Shucks style.  When I introduce this corn to anyone they immediately…

Egg Boats

During our lunch break at work a few weeks ago, one of my coworkers was telling us about the delicious eggs that were served at a brunch she had been to.  They were served in baguettes!  Another coworker said that sounds good – better put that recipe up on Blushing Baker so I can try it!  So I did as I was told!  I made these to bring to a…

No Bake Cookie Dough

When my husband and I were first dating he told me he wasn’t really a dessert person.  He’d rather have seconds of dinner when everyone else is hitting up the dessert table – well this was almost a deal breaker for me.  But slowly I started figuring out which dessert he enjoys and which he’ll pass on (he always passes on frosting which is still so sad to me since…
