THE chicken sandwich is officially back at Popeye’s TODAY!! To celebrate, I am re-making the sandwich for all of us that don’t really feel like dealing with the mosh pit of people just to get one.
You eat a lot of chicken sandwiches in your life. But this is truly one that stops you in your tracks and lingers in your mind long after you eat it. It’s amazing. It’s brilliant. It makes me so happy and this version is just as amazing if not better than the original. Read More
Today it’s raining in Atlanta. Gloomy, drizzly and cloudy. A perfect day to stay in the house, cook good food and binge watch some movies or TV shows. Days likes these make me reminisce on the good ole days in my hometown of Portland, OR. So I’ve decided that today, my blog post will be an ode to Portland and I’m making one of my favorite items, Burgerville’s Yakima Valley Fried Asparagus with Garlic Aioli. Read More
Looking for a recipe that pairs well with Lime Margs? I thought so. Me too, lately! I am so excited to share this recipe with you today. Crisp, cool veggies with warm cilantro farro, black beans, lime chicken and lots and lots of southwest flavors.
This isn’t the first time I’ve attempted to remake a recipe from California Pizza Kitchen. About a year ago I made the CPK Inspired Buffalo Cauliflower Bites . It’s funny because I actually don’t dine at CPK too often, but I give them a lot of credit for having some pretty innovative food items. They stay ahead of the curve with health trends (zoodles, cauliflower crust, etc.) and it’s impressive considering they are a chain restaurant. Read More
I decided to remake one of the most legendary fast food breakfast items of all times, the McDonald’s McGriddles and it turned out pretty darn fantastic! These pancake buns are incredibly soft and have delicate pockets of warm maple syrup throughout each bite. There is a little secret to getting the syrup inside of the McGriddle’s. Read More

This will be your new favorite game day food, and let’s face it, the good food is the main reason why I am so interested in football 🙂 Read More
Tagalongs. The undisputed champion of all Girl Scout cookies. Well ok, maybe not undisputed. The Samoas and Thin Mints are clearly tied for first place. But can we pour out some liquor for the Lemon Chalets of yesteryear? Those were my mom and husband’s favorites because they were sooo lemony and zesty!
But there is something about Tagalongs and their irresistible crunch + that peanut butter and chocolate combination that just makes me weak in the knees. Read More
You’re welcome, Internet. Here is finally a Dole Whips recipe that seriously tastes identical to Disney theme parks. This doesn’t have “bananas”, “coconut milk”, or “cool whip” like the craziness I keep finding online. Whhhhhyyyy?? Have they not been to Disney World or Disney Land? There are dozens of these recipes on Pinterest and I have yet to find one that uses legit ingredients that will capture the true essence of the Dole Whips.
FYI – There. Are. No. Bananas in the Disney version! GET IT TOGETHER!!

I came across an article about Balaboosta’s Bakery in East Norwich, NY and I was immediately fixated on these brownie stuffed cookies they are famous for. They looked ridiculously amazing, better than the ones I have created here. They are the masters of stuffing brownies into cookies. Now I don’t claim that these will be as perfect, but since Iam not hopping on a plane and flying to NY anytime soon, I just had to attempt to create a second best option! These are outstanding. By far the best cookie I have ever eaten, and I don’t say that lightly. It really merges two of the best desserts into one cookie, and better than “brookies”, because the brownie is on the inside, it stays slightly under-done, creating one phenomenal cookie.
