Savory Garlic and Cheddar Chicken Panini

Meet our new favorite weeknight sandwich: this Savory Garlic and Cheddar Chicken Panini.  It's ready in just minutes, and uses some of my favorite Mezzetta products!

Meet our new favorite weeknight sandwich: this Savory Garlic and Cheddar Chicken Panini.  It's ready in just minutes, and uses some of my favorite Mezzetta products! I don't know about you, but our summer has been crazy. We've spent practically no time at home, and cooking has been waaaaay down on my list of priorities.  Sort of a weird thing for a food blogger, but even a person who lives for eating gets tired of cooking every now and then. Also, with nearly no time between work and baseball games, swimming lessons, karate classes...well, there's just not much time for gourmet food … {click for more...}

Welcome back to Wake Up Wednesdays - the day when you get to take over our blogs! I hope everyone had a great long weekend!  We definitely did here, and we're certainly in the throes of (hot hot hot) summer.  For me, that means little indoor cooking, and lots of meals around the grill and/or no bake everything! ;-) We are sharing your stuff like CRAZY on all of our social media and pinning to our Wake Up Wednesdays Pinterest Board, so make sure you are following along.

Soft-Baked M&M Cookies

M&M---title

These Soft-Baked M&M Cookies are super soft and chewy, and taste just like the ones you get from the bakery! Last weekend, I had the opportunity to see my favorite singer in concert: James Taylor (yep, apparently I'm 60 years old). This was my sixth JT concert ever and my second in just over three weeks. I told my good friend and concert buddy that my grandest wish was to follow JT around on his concert tour for the rest of the summer. But since that's not going to happen, I got the next best thing: to take Doodle to his first concert and introduce him to some live JT. Not only that, … {click for more...}

Chocolate Lush

chocolate-lush-title-1

Chocolate, cream cheese, Cool Whip, and pecans are the perfect combination in this easy to make Chocolate Lush. Last week I posted a recipe for Strawberry Cheesecake Lush; a variation of the original Chocolate Lush - neither of which I'd made or heard of before.  I fell in love with the Strawberry Cheesecake version - and many of you did, too.  It's an easy, simple {no bake!} dessert, perfect for summer potlucks. I've had so many requests for the original version - which boasts a quick and easy nut crust - that I decided to make it and share it with you today.  It's a tough job, but I'm … {click for more...}

Welcome to Wake Up Wednesdays! The day YOU take over our blog! Are you loving your summer?? I know I am! I can't get enough of summer flavors, farmer's markets and chilling outside until the sun goes down. I find myself rushing home from work every day just so I can take the pup on a long walk. Life is so much more fun with a warm breeze and sunshine on your face! And when it's hot, does anything taste better than a frozen treat? Lisa put together a frozen treats round up featuring YOUR links from Wake Up Wednesdays! Be sure to follow your hosts on social media. We love to give shout … {click for more...}



Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

flourless-pb-cookies---titl

You probably already have all of the ingredients on hand to make these Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.  With just a few simple ingredients, you'll never miss the flour - or butter - in these easy to make cookies.  I'm probably the last person to jump on the flourless baking train.  I just couldn't imagine how baked goods could taste good without flour, but these cookies have shown me the way. Not only that, but they were super simple to make, used only a few ingredients {all of which I already had in the pantry}, and took just minutes to mix up.  This is the kind of baking … {click for more...}



Frozen Coconut Berry Pie

From a flaked coconut-studded graham cracker crust to a creamy coconut filling, this Frozen Coconut Berry Pie is the ultimate in simple summer desserts!

From a flaked coconut-studded graham cracker crust to a creamy coconut filling, this Frozen Coconut Berry Pie is the ultimate in simple summer desserts! Have I ever mentioned that I hate milk?  Like, seriously hate.it. Except for those nine months that I was pregnant and drank chocolate milk every single morning.  Chocolate milk and plain 2 percent milk?  So NOT the same thing. I remember one weekend at my aunt's house as a kid...when I got to the table for breakfast on Sunday morning, there was a giant glass of milk right next to my plate.  Of course, my mother raised me to just … {click for more...}
