Bacon Potato Bites!

I made these little bites for a July 4th party and yes, it’s taken me that long to blog about them. I don’t generally make things with bacon, but anything with bacon usually turns out to be a hit at parties, so I figured why not! Bacon Potato Bites from My Last Bite… Ingredients 4…

Garlic Bread and Tomato Spread

A couple years ago, I created a birthday wishlist on my blog… and some of my amazing friends came together and got me an awesome bread maker machine!  I don’t think I’ve ever posted about it, so here we go.  Can I just say that if you are into making breads, you should TOTALLY get…

Best Shrimp Burger Ever

It’s seriously been forever and a day since I’ve had a recipe post. So I’m giving you a break from seeing my outfit or entering a giveaway, but instead, I’m going to make you drool all over your keyboard.  A few weeks ago I found an interesting (and quite perfect) recipe for a Shrimp Burger. …

My New Fave Chocolate Chip Cookie

You can never go wrong with bringing a basic chocolate chip cookie to party.  Everyone loves those babies and they get gobbled up in minutes.  But I’m always looking for new ways to spice up basic recipes and I may have met my match with these Toasted Coconut and Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies seen…

Chocolate Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

So I have a confession to make.  Sometimes when I’m in a blog post preparing frenzy, baking lots of stuff, taking lots of outfit pictures, etc. I get so backed up in content that I don’t have enough time to post then.  Case in point, this post here.  It’s a “The Dish” one if you…

Pumpkin Pie Croissants

Recently, in my hunt for the perfect ways to use up my pumpkin, I found this amazingly simple and delicious recipe on Pressed Down, Shaken Together that uses pumpkin and crescent rolls.  Now I have to say that it’s been awhile since I’ve bought said crescent rolls (don’t know why) and since I always love…

Caramel Filled Apple Cider Cookies

While blog reading, I recently just found my new favorite fall cookie recipe!  In the past few things, I’ve been craving all things caramel… caramel macchiato, caramel apple pops, apples dipped in caramel, and of course any dessert with caramels would have been perfect!  So when I stumbled upon these Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies,…

I Have Dreams Of Starting My Own Asian Bakery…

On our way back from California a few weeks ago, we came home with a full box of bread from the famous and most delicious 85C Bakery Cafe.  And since we finished that box, all I could think about is wanting more and more bread.  Unfortunately, where I live, we don’t have ANY Asian bakeries……

Happy Cinco de Mayo and More!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  Here we go with a somewhat random post again today.  I just wanted to ask for forgiveness for being MIA this past week.  As you know last weekend I had an awesome time celebrating my friends wedding in Vegas, this week I had a client in town so was extremely busy…

Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage and Mushroom

Fried rice. You all know what it is.  It’s a staple dish at every Chinese restaurant.  It’s so simple to make, it’s one of those throw everything in a wok type of dishes, those are the best.  Even better, there’s no “set” ingredients you really need, well except maybe rice, duh!  Here’s one variation that…

A kind of fancy Mac N Cheese!

First of all, I miss this little booger, I call him that because he’s been sick lately and has a lot of boogers and snot.  :(  The cutest thing ever is that he’ll blow his nose so all this snot is hanging out and he’ll say “Blow, blow” so that you’ll bring him a tissue…

Jerk Chicken

Ever since we got back from our Caribbean cruise (yes, we’re still thinking about it months later), my husband couldn’t stop talking about the Jerk Chicken we had in Barbados.  It was so flavorful, juicy, sweet and spicy all packed up into a few strips of chicken.  My first taste of Jerk Chicken was actually…
