Mixed Booger Salad with Snot and Scabs (Twisted Chicken Caesar Salad)

This simple twist on a Caesar salad gets a hit of gag inducing grossness from the name. I'm very proud of it. It's pasta tossed with romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese and (if desired) chicken. I rip up a rotisserie and throw it in there. I leave the dressing on the side (labeled "snot) so the… Continue reading Mixed Booger Salad with Snot and Scabs (Twisted Chicken Caesar Salad)

Flayed Witches Fingers (Ham and Asparagus Roll Ups)

One of my favorite party appetizers involves pickled veggie wrapped in cheese and meat. These Flayed Witches Fingers are easy to whip together with all store-bought ingredients. I used a jar of pickled green beans I got from my mom-in-law, but you can easily use jarred asparagus from your local supermarket. Slap some softened cream… Continue reading Flayed Witches Fingers (Ham and Asparagus Roll Ups)

Fried Zucchini Batter

This is a super simple, very adaptable recipe to batter veggies for frying. I used zucchini, but it would work with just about anything you want to dip in a light batter and fry to airy crisp perfection. I ate these babies with (gasp!) no dipping sauce. The batter wrapper was perfect for me. They'd… Continue reading Fried Zucchini Batter

Potato Gnocchi With Butter and Cheese

I came upon this recipe while trying to find a way to use up some leftover potatoes. Often I chop them up a little and throw them into a saucepan as hash browns to have with breakfast. Or I use them to make Bubble and Squeak. I found this recipe, calling for baked potatoes strained… Continue reading Potato Gnocchi With Butter and Cheese

Fried Mozzarella Bites

Not enough of them to make another batch (drat!), but plenty to not want to waste them. While wondering what to do with them, a truly genius thought entered my noggin. Fill them with cheese. Everything… Continue reading Fried Mozzarella Bites

Beer Battered Shoestring Carrots

The only people I know who consider carrots a snack food are practically vegetarians. Sure, they are crunchy and pair perfectly with hummus. But really? I'd much rather be noshing on pretzels or chips. Carrots are not my first thought when deciding on a snack. You also probably never thought of them as pub (sorry,… Continue reading Beer Battered Shoestring Carrots

Now put them together. You know it's going to be unbelievable. And it is. No matter how much I tried, I could not… Continue reading Mango Guacamole

Fabulously Freaky Halloween Fodder

Fabulously Freaky Halloween Fodder I love throwing Halloween parties. Mostly because I get to make delicious food and give it disgusting names. Here's a round-up of all the deliciousness I made this year and the nastiness I called it. Most of these items are easy to make (and can be done ahead of time) so… Continue reading Fabulously Freaky Halloween Fodder
