Take the Greek Yogurt Taste Test

Disclosure: I want to thank Yoplait for sponsoring this #Tasteoff, giving me the opportunity to express my honest opinion. Here is a known truth about me that I even wrote on my About Me page....I do not like Greek yogurt. Seriously, I don't. Because it was the "cool" thing to eat, I tried a couple of different brands only to take a few bites and have to choke it down. I can't recall if it was a texture or a tartness thing but all that matters is I was not a fan. With my Greek yogurt … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Blossoms Recipe

One recipe that always brings me back to my childhood during Christmastime is peanut butter blossoms. The delicious peanut buttery cookie and the soft, slightly melted chocolate on top. It's one of the recipes I cherish from my mom and turn to whenever I need a pick me up.

It's something that can be passed on through the generations and the tradition is passed on. When I found … [Read more...]

Easy Slow Cooker Meal: Korean BBQ

Disclosure: I created my Korean BBQ Tacos using Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauce as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #CampbellsSkilledSaucers Want to hear something some people find odd? Here goes, I'm Korean and I've never made Korean BBQ. I think I've eaten it but I can't entirely be sure. For some reason I have it in my head that it's really complex to make (even though I've never really looked at a recipe) and I'm sure it's because the flavors are so intense and not because I'm kinda … [Read more...]

Holiday Entertaining with Mrs. T Pierogies

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Millennial Central Consulting for Mrs. T’s Pierogies. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. #MC From the looks of my Facebook feed, Christmas is already here.

While I haven't … [Read more...]

What I’ve Been Cooking – Recipe Roundup

In case you missed it, these are just a few of the recipes coming out of my kitchen.... If you need a quick weeknight meal that has a ton of flavor, fresh veggies and butter, then this shrimp scampi with sauteed tomatoes is perfect for you!

Instead of using traditional crackers, I use rice crackers to keep the mixture … [Read more...]

10 Breakfast Sandwich Ideas

A couple of weeks ago I received a breakfast sandwich maker from Hamilton Beach to try and let them (and you) know what I thought about it. Well, I love it.

You can't do that if you cooking eggs on a skillet! Check out the full review and get the recipes for just a few of my breakfast sandwich ideas. What's your favorite food for breakfast? … [Read more...]
