What’s In Your Kitchen Wednesday

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful and safe Memorial weekend with your families and loved ones.  My husband was out of town for the entire week and holiday weekend…off on a “guys trip” to the Indy 500.  I was a little nervous to have him gone for so long, mostly because he is an awesome helper and partner around the house.

And, I just like to have him around.  😉

But, Doodle was a perfect kiddo while Daddy was away, and we had some great bonding time together.  We did a few things that we wouldn’t normally do when Daddy was home: like eat ice cream for dinner and stay up past bedtime playing outside.  To be honest, I was a little sad when our Doodle and mommy-only time came to an end.

Oh, and if you haven’t entered yet, there are still a few days left for the Kitchen Aid Mixer Giveaway.

On to the FEATURES!

This week’s top viewed post were these Watermelon Margarita Cupcakes from Cooking with Curls. How perfect are these for a summer treat?


A little fact about me: I love key lime desserts. I also love cheesecake. So yeah, this Key Lime Coconut Cheesecake Mousse from The Brunette Baker needs to happen at my house soon.


And oh my…considering I just made a Cheesy Chicken Doritos Casserole, I’m in love with the idea of these Homemade Doritos from Heather’s French Press.


We’re always on the lookout for make your own Chinese take-out, and any version that has “skinny” in the title, is right up my alley! This Skinny Orange Chicken from Tastes Better From Scratch sounds amazing!


And, I think after eating a “skinny” dinner, I should get a huge slice of this Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake Brownie Pie from Inside BruCrew Life. I mean…just look at it!


Thank you all so much for coming back each week to make this party a great success!  I love seeing all of your great creations, and it’s such an awesome way for me to find new blogs to stalk read.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
