This is my new favorite, quick and easy snack or side dish. This couscous salad is packed with bright flavors from the lemon, basil and fresh vegetables. It’s also light and refreshing, perfect for these warm days ahead of us. Plus it keeps for awhile, so you can prepare it ahead of time for parties. [...]
6 Way to Seduce Me: 1. Bacon 2. Avocado 3. Dark Chocolate 4. Potatoes 5. Pizza 6. All of the Above Most girls like flowers. I like food. Bring any combination of these foods to me and I am yours. Forever. Or at least until I am hungry again. These homemade chips speak straight to [...]
I have the Mister Rogers’ song, “Won’t you be my neighbor,” stuck in my head. Why? Well, do I really need a reason? Okay, I do have a reason. Our friends recently moved into the neighborhood! I wanted to do something special for them, modern JELL-O mold style (except without the mold). Are you still [...]

But that’s just me… I’m a Halloween nut. I made these petite treats last year for my friend Jacob’s Halloween shin-dig (see completely embarrassing photos here). They [...]
I have a confession to make. I, Miss McBooty, am addicted to the Food Network. Yes I know, you’re asking yourself how am I any different than any other female blogger? Well I’ve noticed lately that every time I turn on my TV, the Food Network is on. And even though I’ve seen about 99% [...]

Pick it up with your fingers, suck out the delicious seeds that live inside of that tough, outer-shell, and lick your fingers clean. The only thing that can make edamame better is a delicious sauce that [...]
Quinoa is magical, isn’t it? It fills your belly but it doesn’t fill your waste-line. Quinoa is one of those healthy grains that you can manipulate to make it your own too. I like to cook mine in broth and add fresh herbs and veggies. This salad is tasty at any temperature too – great for [...]
I don’t like to admit that I’m ever selfish, but from time to time I do tend to act a bit more needy than any normal girl ever should. This recipe all started when I was experiencing that thing women experience once a month – that pull your hair out and scream until you get [...]
Veganism is something that Mister and I are both currently exploring. We are meat lovers at heart, but from time to time I find an amazing vegan recipe that I have to try (and Mister is typically my guinea pig).
