Rob and I never lived together before we got married, and when we finally did get married and move in together, we had a lot of fun playing Rock Band (the video game). We named our band in the game Flesh Eating Champagne, and the name has stayed with us since. When we need toContinue reading “The Only Team I Need: Flesh Eating Champagne”
The perfect refresher for post 13.1 mile runs!
It’s Champagne Thursday doggie style!
Instead of going out this past year on New Year’s Eve, my husband and I stayed home and made our favorite appetizers! We love these bacon wrapped bites of goodness, and they would be perfect to celebrate your normal, everyday Champagne Thursday. Even though the holidays are over, we’ve got to keep up with theContinue reading “Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts with Awesome Sauce”
When it’s cold, we always make more soup, and one of our favorites is Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup. By substituting Shirataki Angel Hair Noodles for the real thing, we enjoy a more low-carb version of our favorite cold day treat. Ingredients: 48 oz Reduced Sodium Chicken Broth 1/3 cup Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce 3/8 cupContinue reading “Amazing Lower-Carb Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup (with Shirataki Noodles)”
My husband and I love this hot sauce. It’s a recipe that my uncle gave us a long time ago. At our Non-Rehearsal Dinner the night before our wedding, my uncle made the best BBQ chicken on the grill using this sauce. Ingredients: 1/2 gallon Apple Cider Vinegar 3 oz. Black Pepper 2 oz. CrushedContinue reading “Amazing Hot Sauce (Comrade Like Spicy)”
There’s only one kind of deviled egg recipe in the world that I’ll eat, and it’s this one. I grew up on these deviled eggs, first from my grandma, then my mother. Now I’m sharing the recipe because there are entirely too many deviled eggs recipes on the internets that don’t have bacon!
When I was a kid, I used to love the Butterscotch Haystacks. This recipe modifies the traditional haystack recipe by shaping it like a bird’s nest and adding eggs to create a really cute (and tasty) spring dessert recipe. (I was totally inspired by the No Bake Easter Nest Cookie Recipe at Prudent Baby.)The otherContinue reading “Butterscotch Bird’s Nest No-Bake Cookies”
I think everyone craves hearty, warm foods in the winter. At our house, we usually cook a lot more curry, stew, and chili. One thing we love to make is our spaghetti sauce; Rob and I both like hot, so this is a pretty hot dish. However, this dish only uses cayenne and crushed redContinue reading “Our Fra Diavolo Spaghetti Sauce (Yummy! Spicy!)”
Rob and I wanted to try our hand at toffee this holiday season (what a great gift for everyone!), so I decided to try this AMAZING recipe from Apartment Therapy. I never knew toffee was so easy to make. And because I’m not a big candy maker, I found the whole process truly fascinating. IContinue reading “Sunday’s Skillet Toffee”
For Thanksgiving festivities this year, I made/created a Chocolate Kahlua Pecan Pie. I know some pecan pie lovers are purists and against adding other ingredients to their traditional pecan pie, but I am not. And I love chocolate…and liquor! There’s nothing better to add to a pecan pie to make it even better!
For this week’s ChampagneThursday recipe, I’d like to feature a drink recipe that I made up. And it’s awesome (if I do say so myself)! The ingredients are champagne (extra dry–as dry as you can find for your budget; I used Andre Extra Dry because my budget was $5.00), Diet Cheerwine (I prefer to useContinue reading “Recipe: Carolina Mimosa”
Erin’s new recipe for Porcini Baby Bella Rice is awesome! Generally Porcini mushrooms are used in risotto, but here’s a more flexible, lighter version using jasmine rice and white truffle oil. (Makes 4-6 servings)
I don’t like to do much cooking in the summer that doesn’t involve a grill. However, this pot roast uses a slow cooker and is easy to make. If you don’t think of it as the perfect summer food, let this be a prelude to the autumn that lies before us.
Erin has contributed a new recipe to the Julepstyle recipe database. It’s for some really yummy pizzas. And even though I’m writing this in the morning, I’m craving some of her Pizza!
