Baked corn dogs

We just got home from a wonderful three day weekend to a friends house outside of San Antonio.  The drive home on Monday was quite nerve-wrenching because we were driving thru towns with tornado warnings and trying to miss golfball size hail.  When we arrived back home we basically had a large pond across...

Baked Pita Chicken

Distractions.  I am so easily distracted by little things that sometimes I miss the bigger picture in life.  As I’m writing this post I caught myself reading aimlessly over my Facebook feed.  Updating constantly to see what was new with my friends.  After Facebook I hit up pinterest to see if anything was worth...

Berry ice cream bars

Summertime is approaching at a fast pace and I’ve got cool quick treats on my mind.  Who am I kidding…. sweets are my middle name.  I could go for a warm homemade gooey chocolate chip cookie or a big bowl of vanilla ice cream topped with hot fudge, caramel and don’t forget the sprinkles....

Hummus dipping sauce

I am officially in Miami and I’ve had the Will Smith “Miami” song stuck in my head for the past week.  The BlogHER food conference is officially underway and I can’t wait to meet other bloggers and try out the Miami food scene.  I will also be spending plenty of time at the beach...

Prosciutto pesto pizza twists

Where has this year gone?  It’s hard to believe that we are halfway through May and that summer is about to be here.  I can’t say that it feels like summer since we just experienced a cold front.  The heater came back on and I brought out the long sleeve shirts to go with...

Fried Avocado Tacos

Tacos….. oh how I love thee.  When I’m at a restaurant I rarely, and I mean rarely, skip out on meat selections.  I could probably count on one hand where I’ve actually chosen vegetarian options over something with meat.  What can I say I like my meat. There is one restaurant that will always...

Cotija Herb Onion Rings

The ultimate comfort food cotija herb onion rings.  They can be eaten alone with a big jug of beer or paired with a mouthwatering burger. This time next week I will be sipping a cold one on the beach in Miami.  Well “technically” I will be attending a food conference there but everyone needs...

French toast cinnamon rolls

What do you think about sticky notes?  I seriously can’t live without them.  They are plastered all over my house with little notes and reminders to anything and everything.  I even use my note app on my iPhone for things I want or assume I need, recipe ideas and little reminders about Livi. The...
