Blood Orange Yogurt Loaf

In honor of the "Super Blue Blood Moon", and also due to the fact I just so happened to have some cara cara oranges on hand, I decided today would be a great day to try out this recipe by How Sweet Eats that I've recently stumbled upon. First step, prepare the ingredients.  After gathering … Continue reading Blood Orange Yogurt Loaf


Cinnamon Rolls

These are my favorite cinnamon rolls EVER.  I got the recipe from my sister.  They take a while to make (since the dough must rise twice) but you get a lot of bang for your buck with this recipe because it makes at least two dozen and depending on how thick you cut them you … Continue reading Cinnamon Rolls

Instant Pot Chocolate Cheesecake

My husband gifted me an Instant Pot for Christmas and since it arrived early and there was no hiding what was inside (thanks Amazon...) we started using it right away.  It's been fun learning how to use this new appliance and nearly every recipe we've tried making with it has turned out great!  I came … Continue reading Instant Pot Chocolate Cheesecake


I've been thinking about scones (aka beignets) since Halloween.  There was a family in our old neighborhood that made fantastic scones for anyone who stopped by, complete with delicious jams and honey butter.  It was awesome! I love the idea and we have considered starting that tradition in our new neighborhood, but with the LOADS … Continue reading Scones

Cheesy Potatoes

I was trying to decide what to make for dinner and cheesy potatoes sounded good (aka "funeral potatoes").  I loooooove cheesy potatoes (or pretty much anything with cheese)! Although I have made them before, oddly enough I couldn't find a recipe in my recipe box or on any of my Pinterest boards. So after a … Continue reading Cheesy Potatoes

Corn Dog Muffins

After seeing this on the internet somewhere, I made a mental note to try it out someday.  It just so happened that we had a bunch of hot dogs left over from our son's birthday party and some corn bread mix in the pantry that I've been meaning to use up, so tonight I decided … Continue reading Corn Dog Muffins

Salad Swap

Spring is in the air where I live, and the temperature will soon be rising.  As the layers of clothes start to diminish, the desire to eat healthier begins to increase...or is that just me?!  😀 Last spring, a friend invited me and a couple of others ladies to do a salad swap.  The idea … Continue reading Salad Swap

Masitas Secas

Masitas Secas translates literally to "dry cookies".  In other words, they are perfect for dipping in milk or hot cocoa.  I grew up dipping everything in Nesquick!  This recipe is one that we got from a family friend in Argentina.  I remember helping my mom make these simple, crumbly cookies as a kid.  For some … Continue reading Masitas Secas

Milanesas de Pollo

Are you wondering what to make for dinner?  How about Milanesas de Pollo? This is one of my favorite Argentine foods (also enjoyed in other countries, but I say Argentina because that's where I am from). Some people call it "chicken fried steak"...but that name never made sense to me so we'll just go with … Continue reading Milanesas de Pollo
