Garlic Cheddar Breadsticks

The past month my roommate and I have been taking a cake decorating class (more on that later...), meaning we each have to make a cake and frosting every week for this 8 week class. Meaning we have TWO cakes sitting in our house at all times. While we've been giving a lot of it away, can you blame me for not craving any sweets lately? There is one thing I never get tired of though. And that … [Read More...]


Fudgy Mint Brownies

Guys, I made mint chocolate chip ice cream this weekend. It didn't quite turn out... The mint flavor was great! And I have a thing about mint chocolate chip ice cream needing to be green (I don't like white mint chocolate chip ice cream- I don't care what you say, it does not taste the same!) so I got the right shade of green! However, the chocolate chip part didn't quite turn out. In fact, it … [Read More...]

Bright Cellars Review | A Monthly Wine Club

Let's get this out in the open: I love wine. We always have wine in the house and I don't believe it needs a special occasion to be opened. I have an overflowing shelf of corks, just waiting for a craft night. My family constantly posts wine related … [Read More...]


Brownie Bites

I remember when I was in high school and my sister, cousin and I had these massive all-day movie marathons. We would go to Blockbuster or Hollywood Video (I swear we aren't that old...) and rent about 5 movies and just lounge in our pajamas all day … [Read More...]

Jalapeño Hummus (using Dried Garbanzo Beans)

Pop quiz time: which two states grow the most garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas)? Answer: Idaho and Washington. The Palouse region, to be specific. Which, fun fact, is where I grew up! When Mom gave me a bag of dried garbanzo beans grown in my … [Read More...]
