Avgolemono Ramen Soup

Avgolemono Ramen Soup

Recently, our brother’s friend Darren tweeted us and asked if we have a ramen soup recipe. I love making all things ramen, but we didn’t have a ramen soup on the blog. And this challenge was extra fun coming from a guy who I would […]

Hibiscus Mint Mojitos

Hibiscus Mint Mojitos

With temperatures below freezing one week, and into the 70’s the next, I’m having trouble keeping track of time. In my mind it is April, but maybe that has more to do with the fact that January felt like it was 14 weeks long. Yesterday […]

Easy Scallops and Fettuccine for Two

Easy Scallops and Fettuccine for Two

It’s that time of year again for sending and receiving all kinds of mixed messages. Do we really think flowers are a waste of money, and dinner reservations are too much trouble, and chocolate is too many calories? And when our other half says not […]

Rice Dainty

Rice Dainty

What is Rice Dainty? I made this dessert (if that is, in fact, what it is), ate a bunch of it, and still can’t quite give you a good answer. It is whatever you want it to be. It is rice Pudding-esque, and therefore it […]

Easy Fish Chowder

Easy Fish Chowder

As former New Englanders, we take chowder pretty seriously. I know I’m not a true New Englander because I grew up in Western PA. But I did eat enough of it in the 11 years I lived up north to know what I like in […]

Cold Snap Shandy

Cold Snap Shandy

Do you ever have to rearrange the beer in your fridge before you can put the groceries away? Do you ever have to take out some beer so you can fit food that will actually nourish your children? It doesn’t happen very often, but first […]

Fancy Mac and Cheese

Fancy Mac and Cheese

Is there any dish more universally loved than mac and cheese? From microwavable easy mac to oven baked with expensive cheese and lobster, there are countless recipes within the macaroni and cheese category. In fact, I was hesitant to even put this recipe on the blog with […]

Bloody Mary Shrimp Salad

Bloody Mary Shrimp Salad

I never really understood people who like tomatoes, but not ketchup. Or how about people who like ketchup, but not tomato sauce on their pasta? But I have to say that I do understand not loving tomato juice, yet loving everything about a bloody Mary. […]

Dollar Spot Tablescape for  Valentines Day

Dollar Spot Tablescape for Valentines Day

Couldn’t you just live at the Target Dollar Spot? That area of the store is basically a store in and of itself. I just can’t control myself when I get into the Dollar Spot Zone. It’s like I blackout and emerge 30 minutes later with […]
