Prosciutto Wrapped Tuna & Beet Jalapeño Poppers

Prosciutto Wrapped Tuna & Beet Jalapeño Poppers

It’s right about this time, at mid-summer, when I start to scheme my holiday cooking. To some, this might be the equivalent of stores putting out Christmas decoration in July. Yes, it’s probably a bit premature. But, there is nothing, and I literally mean nothing, that I like more than cooking during the holidays. And if there’s one category of foods that often gets neglected during the holiday season, it’s appetizers. So today, I’m perfecting my appetizer game with the help of Tonnino Tuna. Who’s up for a few Prosciutto Wrapped Tuna & Beet Jalapeño Poppers?! Call me crazy, but …

Bison Chili Bread with Better Than Bouillon

Bison Chili Bread

This post was sponsored by Better Than Bouillon as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Change excites me. A change in hairstyle, a change in address, or even something as simple as a change in weather. A seasonal change is always welcome and always ushers in new experiences. That’s what I find so exciting about cooking. It may seem cliche, but the change in weather means a change in my kitchen. I go from fresh salads and BBQ in the summer to hearty soups and warm breads in …

Homemade Elderflower Marshmallows Recipe

Homemade Elderflower Marshmallows

Every great host has to have a few trick up her sleeves. A signature cocktail whipped up like a professional mixologist; an insanely good lamb chop dish even your mother-in-law can’t besmirch; and a seemingly impossible dessert that only you know how to make. Well today I’m going to help you with the last one on that list. Low-calorie Homemade Elderflower marshmallows. Alongside newborn puppy kisses or a romp through a field of wildflowers, marshmallows are one of life’s greatest small joys. I could literally munch on those little heavenly sweet clouds everyday.

Buffalo Chicken & Feta Basketball Poppers

This post is sponsored by Tyson Foods, Inc. All comments and opinions are my own. ‘Tis the season to shoot hoops! Sleeveless jerseys, sweaty palms, baited breath as the ball swooshes through the net. Oh yeah, and chicken! Let’s all just agree right here and now that chicken appetizers should be the official food of basketball season. Seriously, it’s the peanut butter to jelly, the Sam to Diane, or how baby boomers like to think of millennials, the avocado to toast. Watching a game isn’t enjoyable without some bite-sized chicken in hand. And if you need some convincing, then look …

Brazilian Cheese Bread, TruffleHunter, White Truffle Brazilian Cheese Bread

White Truffle Brazilian Cheese Bread

There is one ingredient that dominates my pantry. Truffles. I am pretty obsessed with this rare treat and I cannot walk past a truffle-flavored item in the store without purchasing it. It’s an expensive problem. But if there is one thing I’ve learned from my truffle hoarding, it is that there is a huge difference in quality between brands. And given the price of the coveted ingredient, it is essential to know which products are worth the investment. So, that is why I’m sharing my new favorite product, TruffleHunter’s White Truffle Oil, with you today. And to commemorate my utter …

Baked Zucchini Spaghetti Medallions

Special thanks to Green Giant! This post was sponsored by Green Giant as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. David versus Goliath. Jeans versus post-baby body. Netflix versus 8 hours of sleep. Some battles are epic. But there is one that has withstood the test of time, eternal turmoil to rival all wars… toddler versus vegetables. I am currently huddled in the muddy trenches of this bloody struggle. Like her mother before her, my daughter refuses to eat veggies. And if it wasn’t for my maternal force-feeding instincts, …

Tai Pei, Fried Rice, Frozen Meals

Tai Pei Fried Rice for the Win!

This post was sponsored by Tai Pei, all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Every so often, I like to take a recipe breather and introduce you to an innovative pre-made food product instead. I do this because I am a realist. I know you’re busy. Unless you’re Ina Garten or Martha Stewart (circa 1980), it’s impossible to make every meal from scratch. Seriously, who has time for that?! Even me, a professional food writer, stylist, and recipe developer often opts for pre-made, easy meals. Between my work, my toddler, and every day life, home cooked food is …
