Crockpot Whiskey Peach BBQ Chicken

Crockpot Whiskey Peach BBQ Chicken

Sorry for a summery recipe when we are in the heart of September, but when peaches were in the peak of their season several weeks ago, I really wanted to make a version of Pioneer Woman’s Whiskey Peach BBQ chicken using actual peaches instead of peach preservers. Obviously fresh peaches aren’t in season all year round,…

Rice Noodles & Peanut Butter Sauce

Rice Noodles & Peanut Butter Sauce

Although I was a little apprehensive about making a peanut butter sauce for noodles, I couldn’t be more pleased with how this dish turned out in the end. Peanut butter is something I’d usually pair with chocolate, so eating it with soy sauce, took a little bit of time to wrap my head around. The…

Roasted Banana Pudding Ice Cream

Roasted Banana Pudding Ice Cream

I absolutely love banana pudding, and I really wanted to combine that dessert with ice cream. Turning banana pudding into a frozen dessert with crunchy Nilla wafers quite possibly make it even more delicious than the original dessert. This picture may not look like much, but I promise you, this is anything but a basic and…

Pad Thai Spaghetti & Meatballs

Pad Thai Spaghetti & Meatballs

I’ve really wanted to try my hand at pad thai for awhile now, but I decided to put my own twist on the dish inspired by spaghetti and meatballs. For a basic pad thai that’s easy and doesn’t require fish sauce (which we couldn’t find), just leave off the meatballs. Or just serve the meatballs…

Beer Orzo ‘n’ Cheese

Beer Orzo ‘n’ Cheese

Dustin made a delicious Greek orzo dish with cherry tomatoes, feta, Kalamata olives, and a drizzle of olive oil. Unfortunately, he forgot to photograph it until he was already done eating and I was about 50% done. It’s ok though because it really wasn’t much of a recipe beyond what is previously described. However that meal…

Butter Chicken Lasagna

Butter Chicken Lasagna

The idea of an Indian lasagna jumped into my head, so I googled butter chicken lasagna and stumbled across this recipe from the Canadian Food Network. In the end it took me a lot longer to make than I originally anticipated, but it was a labor of love to create a more elaborate meal for…

Linguine Con Le Vongole

Linguine Con Le Vongole

I think this might be the first time we’ve ever made pasta without having cheese accompany it. After I mentioned this tidbit to Dustin, he said we should have added some parmesan to the top. But I think we’ll leave well enough alone. There was plenty of bacon flavor (the only really unhealthy part of…

Monster Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Monster Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Dustin may not remember complaining that he didn’t get to try any of my cookie dough ice cream last summer when he was out of town, but he did. So to make up for this “injustice,” I made a batch of very similar ice cream (mentioned previously here), except instead of regular chocolate chip cookie…

Blood Orange Olive Oil Cookies

Blood Orange Olive Oil Cookies

It’s been a really long time since we’ve blogged, but life has been crazy around here while we moved to a new townhouse. For over a week now we’ve been packing, moving boxes, and unpacking. Cooking, taking pictures, or writing about those things were pretty low on the list of thing we wanted to do after…

Hatch Chile Goat Cheese Cakes

Hatch Chile Goat Cheese Cakes

This deceptively simple title belies the amazing combination of flavors that live in this dish. We took Dustin’s great appetizer from awhile back and turned it into possibly our favorite dinner from Hatch chile week(s)— Hatch Chile Goat Cheese Cakes with Caramelized Bacon and Spinach Salad. To make the delicious goat cheese cakes, I blended…
