goat-cheese-tomato-basil-flatbread

One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is to experiment and create new pizza and flatbread recipes. I really think anything on a pizza crust, flatbread or naan bread is perfection. And this Goat Cheese, Tomato & Basil Flatbread recipe is as close as you can get!

For this recipe, I used naan bread which is a cross between a pizza crust and flatbread. Naan is an Indian style flatbread that is baked in an oven. I like naan better than flatbread because it’s a little thicker but has a different flavor than a pizza crust. If you haven’t tried it yet, you have to treat yourself. And it’s much easier to find in the bakery section of your grocery store. read more

corn-goat-cheese-stuffed-peppers

When it comes to finding new recipes, I always look for ingredients that I love and that would go perfectly together. That is why I wanted to make this Corn & Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppers recipe. Not to mention it’s one of Erin with Naturally Ella’s recipes and she is a mentor and friend of mine. I love what she represents in the food world. She always uses fresh, natural ingredients and I aspire to always do that.

I am also a huge fan of stuffed peppers. My husband makes a mean, stuffed peppers with ground beef recipe! Peppers are so underrated when it comes to creating a bed for food. I also love using bread, mushrooms, and potatoes for my recipes. But for this one, I used green peppers! read more

Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn

These days, it’s so easy to make popcorn! Just stick the bag in the microwave and set the timer. But lately, I have been wanting to experiment with popcorn and test out new flavors. That is where this Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn began. I love anything with cinnamon sugar so why not try it on popcorn!

When I was growing up there was really only one way to make popcorn, ok two but we didn’t have one of those fancy popcorn makers until I was older. We always made the popcorn in a pot on the stove. As a kid, I loved when the popcorn outgrew the pot and popped off the lid. We added melted butter and salt and we were done. Now there are so many flavors to choose from! read more

Classic Deviled Eggs

As we get ready for the end of the summer, I started to think about my favorite summer side dishes for an outdoor bbq! Yeah, we all love Summer Macaroni Salad, Potato Salad and Corn on the Cob, but these Classic Deviled Eggs are pretty high up on my list too.

Actually, deviled eggs are great any time of year and not just in the summer. Maybe it’s because of its bite-size quality or just because it’s so creamy. It’s definitely the perfect summer splurge! read more
