    Pizza for Breakfast

    That’s right, I said it.  Pizza for breakfast.  Now I’m not talking about cold leftover pizza that’s been hanging out in the fridge.  Though, I do loooove a good cold pizza.  Ask anyone in my family and they will tell you that I am more of a fan of the cold stuff than a pie fresh out of the oven.  No, I’m talking about a pizza that’s just for breakfast.  Well, scratch that, this pizza is really so good I could eat it any time of the day.  But my point is, this not your typical pepperoni or even supreme pizza.  This breakfast pizza is loaded with some of those…

    Quick & Tasty Chicken Fried Rice

    One of the guilty pleasures in our family is take-out.  It’s quick: you can just call it in, run by and grab it.  And generally, it’s something that doesn’t taste the same if you were to make it at home; if you wanted to even attempt to fix it at home.  (Cause we all know that never turns our right.)  Plus, who even knows what’s in the stuff anyway. I, personally, have a few things that I love to eat when I have Asian.  One of which is fried rice; more specifically, chicken fried rice.  I would usually get this as a side to some other type of chicken dish.  But…

    Berry Breakfast Smoothie

    For me, smoothies are my go-to meal replacement for breakfast.  They can be one of the healthiest and quickest options for breakfast there is.  You can load it up with all kinds of goodness…or not so good stuff.  You just gotta know what to do.  And I’ve seen all the pins and and recipes floating around the internet, ya’ll know what’s up. I was talking to my mom the other morning while I was drinking my breakfast.  She proceeded to tell me that she likes smoothies but just can’t have them for a meal.  “They just don’t stay with me,” she tells me.  And I began to think, “Why?”  Then…

    Jarlsberg Cheese Dip

    A few years ago I was at the grocery in Kentucky when I came upon one of the deli attendants serving up samples of some type of dip.  It was pale with variations of white, spotted with purple.  The dip was cheesy, creamy, pungent, and called Jarlsberg cheese dip.  With it’s holes, Jarlsberg cheese, may make you think Swiss.   But, in my opinion, it is far more complex with it’s a semi-soft nutty taste. This wasn’t the first time I had sampled this dip.  No, I had actually had it once before at my in-laws house.  It was good.  So good that I had actually paid the outrageous $7 or…

    Spinach Walnut Pesto

    We are almost through January of this new year.  (Heeello 2015!  Are you over yet?) Are you still on that health kick you promised yourself? I bet you went out at the beginning of the month and stocked up on all the good for you vegges that you could, didn’t you?  And if I were a bettin’ woman, I’d also bet spinach was one of those items.  Whether you are fond of it or not, you bought it – economy size.  And now it’s just sitting in the fridge.  You are officially smoothied and salad out.  (Which I don’t know how that could ever happen.  At least on smoothies.)  Whether you…
