Mango Guacamole

The title says everything you need to know. Say it slowly with me. Mango. Guacamole. Feel the words as they bounce from your lips. Mango. Sweet, light, tropical. Guacamole. Rich, creamy, delicious. 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

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 you won't be slaving… Continue reading Fabulously Freaky Halloween Fodder

Oven Baked Zucchini Chips

It's zucchini season! Many of you, with greener thumbs than I, are reaping bountiful harvests of beautiful green squash. I'm so jealous! I kill just about every plant I touch, so a garden of homegrown deliciousness has never worked out for me. Also, it seems like a lot of work. Kudos to you vegetable garden… Continue reading Oven Baked Zucchini Chips

English Muffin Pizzas

These little pizzas will forever remind me of slumber parties. Growing up, this was the standard dinner fare for all things involving a gaggle of giggling girls in their jammies (I wish jammies started with a "g"). You can make dozens at a time and everyone can pick their favorite toppings. It is awesome when… Continue reading English Muffin Pizzas

Granny Smith Apple Salsa

This is not your granny's salsa. I know it isn't because it came from my friend Theresa. And she's nobody's granny. Actually, her sister's husband made it so I guess it's his salsa. Even better. I know for a FACT that HE isn't your granny. I had it at a bridal shower over the weekend… Continue reading Granny Smith Apple Salsa

Pizza Puffs

Sometimes, sandwiches just aren't going to cut it for lunch. I mean really, I can't expect my kids to eat them every day just because I can make them in my sleep. I made these pizza puffs to change-up our mid-day meal today and my two preschoolers ate the entire batch. They devoured them so… Continue reading Pizza Puffs

Turkey Taco Cups

Mexican food is a big time favorite in my house. We have some variety at least once a week. And it seems that whenever I make tacos, I always have leftovers. Not enough really for another meal though. I hate throwing food away, leftovers especially. I mean, I already made all the stuff right? What… Continue reading Turkey Taco Cups

Fried Mozzarella Balls

I have tried the fried cheese at just about every restaurant in the Seattle area. I love it. In sticks, wedges or balls. With marinara, sprinkled with parmesan, panko, breadcrumbs or beer battered. I would eat it in a box. I would eat it with a fox. I would eat it here or there. I… Continue reading Fried Mozzarella Balls

Zucchini Pizzas

Stay with me. I know the title of this recipe sounds a little odd. But I promise, these are delicious. Sort of like a deep-fried zucchini meets a pepperoni pizza. In one delicious mouthful. Not much goes better with a lazy Sunday watching football than pizza. Unfortunately, I've already way surpassed my quota for slices… Continue reading Zucchini Pizzas
