Rice Balls (Arancini)

Rice Balls (Arincini)

I had my first rice balls about a year ago. My grandma was in the hospital (she’s much better now, thankfully!) and one of the only shining lights was that there was this fantastic Italian grocery store my mom knew about close by. We picked up a bunch of good stuff, along with ready-made rice balls to […]

Kale Chips II

Kale chips

I’ve made kale chips before and to be honest, I wasn’t too thrilled with them. I put them in the oven, toasted and salted them, and out came these little wisps that were no longer green. And they didn’t taste very good either. But, I come armed today with a new recipe for kale chips – the […]

Pimento and Pineapple Cheese Spread


I have been waiting and waiting to tell you all about this recipe. It’s something I served waaaay back on Christmas Day, as part of the spread I put out for people to munch on while they were waiting for dinner. The spread is divine, but the story behind it is even better. It’s a recipe […]

No, we want them to caramelize, because only then do you get the buttery, sugary tastiness that only comes from caramel and almost-burnt […]

Popcorn Chicken


Leftover roast chicken is always one thing in the kitchen that seems to stump me. And it’s so stupid, because it has to be one of the easiest things to cook with. I mean, there are literally hundreds of thousands of recipes online for leftover roast chicken including wraps, salads, pastas, and about a billion other […]

Sleepover S’mores Popcorn

Smores Popcorn

Last weekend my house was invaded by little girls. My own two had a sleepover and it was a bash to end all bashes! We tie-dyed t-shirts, decorated a cake (which inadvertently turned out to have a tie-dye look of its own), and made S’mores Popcorn. It’s just what it sounds like, popcorn topped with all the […]
