Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp

With summer around the corner we decided to bust out to grill and start trying some summer recipes. I believe skewers are a staple in the summer recipe category so I did a search and found this absolutely delicious recipe on http://www.allrecipes.com I wouldn’t change anything about this recipe which is not something that happens often…

Baked Eggrolls – ★★★★★

My newest obsessions are eggroll and wonton wrappers. They are so easy to work with and you can fill them with virtually anything. It is a great way for me to trick my son into eating veggies and my husband loves every single bite. I was a little unsure if I should try making eggrolls…

Smoky Corn and Black Bean Pizza – ★★★★★

I’ve always loved home cooked pizza. There is something about uneven crust and mountain high custom toppings that makes dinner kind of fun. I have found the all time best dough recipe that I use every single time I make a pizza. I’ll post a link to that blog entry. It is a cornmeal dough which works…

Thai Chicken Wings with Peanut Sauce – ★★★★✩

In my hometown there is a pub called “Patricks” that makes the absolute best wings. I remember frequently after Saturday night church my dad would pick up 50 wings and we would feast after mass. I’ve never tried making my own because of the fear of ruining a perfectly good wing haha! I saw this…

Spinach and Lentil Tortellini Soup – ★★★★★

This soup was really hearty and good. I was a little unsure of it at first because the recipe sounded like there was too much going on within the dish. I was surprised how good it ended up being but I definitely think I overdid it on the spinach and will cut back just a bit on…

Slow Cooker Hungarian Goulash – ★★★★✩

I’ve been trying to master more Hungarian dishes because supposedly I have rich Hungarian blood flowing through my veins. The only “traditional” dish I had growing up was paprikash so I’m pretty excited to be able to learn more about my ancestry and teach my son about it too. This dish was very flavorful and I would…

White Chocolate Key Lime Pie

I made this for Easter because I wanted something new, easy to whip up, and obviously delicious. I looked all over the web for those criteria and stumbled upon this little gem on http://www.myrecipes.com It is one of those “throw it together and let it refrigerate overnight” recipes so that on special days you won’t…

Homemade Whipped Cream – ★★★★★

  For Easter dinner I decided I would try my hand at making desert which is something I am always terrified to do. I believe that there is only one other desert recipe on this blog right now. I am feeling more confident in the baking department though so get ready for more desert recipes!…

Low Cal Swedish Meatballs – ★★★★★

Swedish Meatballs are a comfort food I love but not one my hips really enjoy. I found this low cal recipe and it came pretty close to it’s calorie loaded stepsister. It’s rich but not overly done. Definitely a recipe I will be keeping posted on my fridge for a while! I did not add…

Garden Flatbread Pizza with Goat Cheese – ★★★★★

These have become a signature weeknight dinner in our house. They are so easy to make and extremely flavorful. You can top them with whatever you want but we love the combination I always use. The only true fats you should be putting on these puppies are the goat cheese and olive oil. Other than…
