Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Soup

Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Soup Is it just me or was this winter really weird? Like really, really weird.

No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake

No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake with Oreo Crust

No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake As an adult, I have forgotten a crucial piece of information necessary for living a happy and fulfilled life: Oreos are delicious. Seriously, how I have I forgotten this?

Grilled Buffalo Wings with Homemade Buffalo Sauce

The Best Game Day Food

Over the last several months, something has occurred to me as I have been writing this blog and creating recipes. My taste in food runs in extremes.

Cranberry Almond Granola

Cranberry Almond Granola Have I told you all I am not a morning person? Actually, that’s a wee bit of an understatement. If I had my way about it, I would not be bothered to be a functional human being until after 10 am. As it is now, I get up pretty early so I…
