4th of July S'Mores

Looking to serve something special, but also a favorite that your guests already love? Then these 4th of July S'mores are perfect for your party menu! They are easy to put together because you make parts of the recipe beforehand, and the only thing to do before serving is to toast the marshmallow! Use a good quality chocolate for the ganache and a big star as the topper! Everyone will love these!

Dad's Cookies

I was thinking about what kind of cookie is a Dad Cookie. I mean, there is really no such thing as a manly cookie~is there? So I thought about all the types of cookies I have made in my life and which ones the two men in my life liked the most and I came up with Dad's Cookies. There is no scientific evidence that states that these cookies are only for dad's, but I think he will love them!

Beach Cookies!

How about a Beach Cookie to start your week and ward off the Monday blahs! Last week I was making a bunch of beach themed cookies when I came across some beachy cookies on Cake Central. I love to look at all the cookie designs and I fell in love with the pretty simplicity of this beach cookie. This cookie was submitted by Sassyzan. Well, Sassyzan's post sent me to Montreal Confections where she gave step by step video directions on how to make this cookie. Trust me, it is easy and simple to follow. You can use your own sugar cookie recipe, or use my favorite "go to" cookie and frosting recipe!

I recently had a fiesta for dinner with Old El Paso and some of their frozen Mexican entrees. All I can say is OLE'! If you are looking for food that is simple to make, easy to put together, and delicious you have found it! I made the Shredded Beef Enchiladas, Chicken Burritos, Steak Fajitas, and the Chicken Quesadillas.

Potato Perfection with the Ozeri Green Earth Pan!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.  I have been lucky enough to review the Ozeri Green Earth Pan, and I can't wait to tell you how I used it to cook the perfect potatoes.  I say lucky because I LOVE this pan! It is without a doubt the best nonstick pan I have ever used. First of all, the Green Earth Pan is absolutely 100% free of PTFE, PFOA, and other harmful chemicals. Even under high temperatures, the Green Earth Pan's ceramic coating makes sure no harmful toxic fumes will ever be released. The ceramic non-stick coating and elevated texture inside creates air pockets which helps distribute the heat under the food. This pan is the perfect size at 10".

Lime and White Chocolate Cookies



When I think of food and summertime, one of the first things that crosses my mind is citrus. Citrus gives  these Lime and White Chocolate Cookies a spark of flavor that tickles your tongue and lingers on your lips. It is the best in breads, salads, and marinades, and of course, it is perfection all by itself! Not only are these cookies baked with a bit of limeade concentrate, they are topped with a lime glaze and sprinkled with lime zest. You will remember these cookies long after they are gone. And they will disappear fast!
