The Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew beats out the Pumpkin Spice Latte all day long. I’m thrilled that Starbucks created a fall drink that caters to those of us that adore cold drinks all year ’round. Sure, we could make the PSL into an iced latte, but it never tastes as “fall” to me as the hot version. But this Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew nails it and this is the drink I wait all year for. When I found these Starbucks Cold Brew concentrate pods yesterday, I knew that I just had to create a recipe for my favorite drink so we can enjoy it after it leaves the menu at Starbucks!
A friend of mine sent me a video of the Travis Scott burger that McDonald’s is featuring. I was so excited to try and remake it at home. A burger isn’t too complicated, but as you know, a burger can taste so different depending on the toppings, bread, etc. that you use. In this post, I will show you the best items to buy to make this taste identical to the McDonald’s version.
I am a plain jane when it comes to burgers. I will usually get it with limited toppings if any. Sometimes I just opt for meat and cheese. An occasional mayo or red onion might be thrown on depending on which burger joint I am eating at. But for me, ketchup is always on the side. But, I vowed to remake this burger exactly as it’s meant to be eaten and set aside my prejudice on things like pickles and mustard. Wow! This burger may have changed the toppings I put on my burgers forever…
Chinese food is the greatest cuisine ever. In the history of time, I don’t think I have left a Chinese restaurant without spending at least $60. I can’t just get one entree. No, no. I must get two of my favorite entrees (which is always a tie between General Tso’s, Orange Chicken, Sesame Chicken and Sweet & Sour Chicken) plus Lo Mein and an appetizer or two; spring rolls and pan fried dumplings. I am getting so hungry just talking about it.
Why am I making an Orange Chicken Copycat Recipe from The Cheesecake Factory of all places? I realize it’s a bit random to be sharing an orange chicken recipe from the Cheesecake Factory as it’s not an authentic Chinese restaurant or even a Chinese restaurant for that matter LOL but, they do have a really good version that’s widely loved.
So I decided to create a recipe for this dish so I can help all the people that adore this dish (myself included) make this at home! Read More
THE Popeyes Chicken Sandwich is officially back at Popeyes 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
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
Today is Football Sunday and it’s the perfect day to make these Nashville Chicken Nuggets inspired by the Cheesecake Factory.

“Everyone’s Got A Favorite” Entenmann’s and mine is the Devil’s Food Donuts!
Since this is one of my first posts since I took a three month wedding/honeymoon/moving apartments hiatus from my blog, I figured it was appropriate for my comeback recipe to be recreating a very special memory from my time on my honeymoon with my new husband. A chocolate, store-bought donut. Yes, it’s the little things 🙂 Read More
