Marinated Grilled Shrimp

It’s time to officially break out the grill folks! I sent Mother Nature an e-mail explaining she needs to keep her cold and snowy attitude to herself! It’s time to allow Spring and Summer their turn on the playground! Winter is in the “Time-Out” chair until further notice! It’s not her fault…I heard she is struggling with menopause and the hot flashes are killing her. I told her “Girrrrl…we all gotta deal!” So, it’s time for all the wonderful outdoor grilling recipes you and I both love. I’m starting out with this simple, yet amazingly flavorful succulent grilled shrimp dish. Come Join Me…

Cherry Cream Cheese Knots

I love puff pastry. It is not something, however, I will EVER make from scratch. I’m just not that insane….yet! I think one of the most mouth-watering experiences is walking into a pastry shop with every kind of magical danish calling to you from behind the glass. You just know it will be love at first bite. These little Cherry Cream Cheese Knots are just that type of Danish and best part…You made them…

Carne Asada Street Tacos

What’s not to love about a Mini Taco that fits in the palm of your hand and can be eaten in three to four bites? If that isn’t enough…this recipe is one of the BEST Street Tacos EVER!

Loaded Vegetable Quiche

A year ago I discovered I had a secret Quiche lover living at my house. You’ll never believe who it was? I’m still in shock! So just to test if they truly were as much a Quiche lover as they claimed to be…I made this ultra delicious loaded vegetable Quiche. Three slices later it…yup…it passed the test! Quiche is a perfect brunch dish. It’s easy to make yet elegant to serve…

Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

If you want to elevate your brunch game, and who doesn’t… you have got to try these amazing light and flaky buttermilk scones! I made them for my Mother’s Day Brunch. To say they were the most delectable scone I have ever had would be an understatement. What I love about this scone recipe is how easy it is to make with ingredients you probably have on hand. Honestly this recipe will not disappoint. I promise! (I take scone promises VERY seriously…

Easy Microwave Lemon Curd

I love Lemon Curd! What I don’t love is the work involved in making it. I’m not a big fan of any recipe that calls for a “double-boiler”. I cringe just typing it. I know when I hear the word “double-boiler” it means there will be a lot of time and attention required to make that recipe. So when I ran across this recipe for Lemon Curd made in your Microwave…I was SO excited. I was a little worried how it would turn out…I didn’t need to be…it turned out AMAZING! The BEST Lemon Curd EVER…

You’re invited to join me for this fun filled brunch post and some of my thoughts on Womanhood…

White Chocolate Amaretto Cheesecake

For two years I’ve been drooling over this Cheesecake. I decided it was high time I actually make it! So I did! It’s every bit as good as it looks. If you love cheesecake as much as I love cheesecake…you need to make this masterpiece! I think my husband may have made himself sick on this cheesecake he ate so much of it. (That my friends is an endorsement you can take to the bank!) Oh…and don’t let the Amaretto scare you off! Remember you can always “bring a cup of it to a boil to bake off the alcohol, if you don’t drink, and all you’re left with is the warm rich flavors of Amaretto. I do this all the time and leave a container of it in my spice cupboard for baking…
