It’s protein-packed, flavorful + hearty, and paired with taco chips…Mmm! It’s crunchy and munchy. :)
Porch parties are my absolute favorite—great friends + conversation, beautiful weather, crisp wine + of course small plates. One of the easiest, yet still elegant small plates (or “acepipes”) I like to serve is a Portuguese-style, warm marinated olives.
If there was one statement that applies to this salad it would definitely be “Not all salads are created equal.” This ain’t your run-of-the-mill garden variety, toss-some-lettuce-and-veggies-last-minute salad. It’s wow-wow-wowza!!!
I used to be indifferent to olives, but am so glad my tastes have changed!
As we start adding more vegan eats to the site, we thought we would start with a great vegan base—cashew cream! It’s seriously a life-changing as it can be used countless ways.
I am constantly snacking. Not good when you have a beach vacation coming up, that’s for sure.
Make entertaining look (and actually be) easy with this warm, creamy, Christmas-colored cranberry & rosemary-topped goat brie.
If there is one recipe I make over and over, it would definitely be these sugar-coated pecans. Sweet and crunchy, these bites are perfect for countless occasions and always a crowd favorite!
In October, pumpkins are king and with pumpkin carving season in full swing, don’t let your raw pumpkin seeds go to waste! Pumpkin seeds may be small, but they pack a big, nutritious punch!
Time for a truth bomb: I am a snacker! Seriously a major snacker. Thankfully these yogurt-covered blueberries are super simple, sweet and filling.
Remember earlier this year when we upgraded some store-bought hummus to hearty, delicious mediterranean dip? Well we’re about to do the same but taking it south of the border for a little fiesta!
Elotes, more commonly known as Mexican street corn to us English speakers, is a classic street treat. Juicy corn, charred then slathered in a creamy chili-lime sauce and sprinkled with cheese. If that sentence didn't make you want to try some, then I will have to reevaluate our friendship. :)
I’ve never been a fan of hot and humid weather, betting suits, or the lake days that Summer inevitably brings, but what I do love about this season is all the fresh fruit! Berries, peaches, mangoes, cherries, apricots…I could go on and on. The colors alone are FABULOUS!
It’s a fact of life that dads love beer and what pairs better with beer than a fresh soft pretzel. Truth is, not much! I find myself craving them at fairs, sporting events, and malls, especially since I can’t have them. It makes me want them that much more!
How about a spicy twist to the perfect party dish? Seasoned and creamy deviled eggs infused with everyone’s favorite—Sriracha sauce.
If you can master hard boiling eggs, you’ve got it made. They can be used on salads, for breakfast, to make deviled eggs and more!
Happy Memorial Day weekend! It’s the perfect time to host a get together, welcome the warm sunshine, and enjoy delicious food with your mates. Let’s spice it up a bit this year with this colorful blend of crisp veggies!
Everything delicious about Mexican food in one skillet? YES PLEASE!
If there are taco chips out, nine times out of ten they are going to be enjoyed with some guacamole. This satisfying, creamy dip is a staple in my house, especially during the summer month when all the ingredients can come straight from the garden.
Next time you’re thinking about serving some dip, how about making your own tortilla chips? They are super easy and add a little more love to a dish than store-bought chips. Plus you can make your own unique flavorings to compliment what you are serving. Win-win!
Frozen grapes are the perfect treat for those hot summer days, each bite delivering a refreshing burst of sweetness. But hold up! They’re a twist to this classic tale—the grapes are marinated in wine! Yes, you heard me right!
No Easter party or brunch would be complete with these creamy little devils! They're a Southern staple. But you don’t need a special occasion to make deviled eggs. Just because is good enough!
Salty, sweet and crispy…that’s something I can get in to. I first tried sweet potato chips from the store, but why buy chips when you can make them? These are easy, addicting and can be whipped up in 30 minutes or less, whenever you want!
We went to a party once where they had chocolate dipped potato chips and remember thinking “that’s odd.” But then I tried them. End of story.
This recipe is for universal crostini. Top these crunchy slices with everything from hummus, cheese, bruschetta, tapenade, vegetables…whatever your heart desires.
I was corrected on the proper pronunciation of bruschetta while traveling once. It’s apparently “bruˈsketta.” And I have not made that mistake since.
Let’s be honest, we don’t always have time to make everything from scratch like we would like and that’s okay. This is where upgrading a recipe comes into play—starting with something store-bought and making it better.
I can not stop eating these! I love recipes with amazing flavor combinations—sweet, salty, crunchy, tangy and fresh all in one bite—count me in!
January is apparently National Soup Month! It makes sense is January is chilly and soup is the perfect meal to enjoy on the couch while wearing fuzzy socks, but it’s been 60-75 degrees here in Nashville all week. It’s insane.
