Mango and Berry Layered Smoothie

Layered Smoothie 010

Today I went home early because I had a sore throat. I wanted something to help my throat out and something healthy to drink with some vitamins. I always tend to overeat whenever I have a sore throat, because eating food just makes the pain go away for me. Some people say to drink warm tea, but I don't like tea, neither coffee. You've probably had a regular smoothie but have you ever tried a layered smoothie? Oh you are missing out. It's two different smoothies combined into one. It will be … [Read more...]

Cajun Tator Tots with Garlic Aoili

Cajun Tator Tots 002

I mentioned a couple of days ago that one of my recipes was mentioned in the Huffington Post. Click here to see the article. I was so amazed at how many visits I got yesterday too, just a little over 11,000. On an average day my views are around 4,000. Pretty darn happy about that, and thanks to the Huffington Post for mentioning my Ramen noodle recipe. :) We went to Sickie's Garage last night for dinner because it was a friend's birthday party on Monday night. It's this new burger place in … [Read more...]

Mexican Street Corn

Mexican Street Corn 015

Mexican street corn is the best corn on the cob ever! Make your own version of it at home it's super simple. Can you believe that there is only a few food trucks in the town I live in? For those of you that live in a city with food trucks, I am jealous and need to move asap. It's kind of sad that this town called Fargo, ND has hardly any and I wish there was more. Food trucks are awesome. I've thought about opening up my own and buying a truck before, maybe someday. It's a dream. Can you … [Read more...]

Chicken Fruit Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

Chicken Fruit Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing 030

I was at the lake cabin this weekend and found this wonderful Poppy Seed dressing in one of the fridges called Brianna's Homestyle Poppyseed Dressing. WOWSAS! Is this salad dressing ever good.  Had it on some chicken, fresh spinach, and strawberries. I was so excited about this dressing, I had to add it to my grocery list and got it at the grocery store . All Natural Ingredients like the bottle says. Just vinegar, olive oil, poppy seeds, etc. No added extra junk like fillers. That is pretty … [Read more...]

Rainbow Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

rainbow fruit and yogurt parfait 003

  I'm 33 years old today. Just another year older to eat more bacon. ;) Tonight I'm celebrating by having friends over and having cake and ice cream, S'mores, a fire pit, and some drinks. It will be a load of fun. I decided to make something fun and colorful for my Birthday. I had this idea of making a fruit and yogurt rainbow parfait, and layer yogurt and fruit in a jar. I tried several times to make the layers look pretty too. Eventually, I just got fed up with it because the layers … [Read more...]

Dorito Taco Salad

dorito taco salad 012

Dorito Taco Salad is pretty similar to a walking taco, although it is in the form of a salad and topped with Catalina Dressing. Catalina dressing is perfect on top of this salad and you can serve the taco meat either warm or cold. My aunt always makes this and it is my favorite salad. This weekend has been so crappy because it just rained. The sun didn't come out and ruined a lot of plans. Especially food blogging related plans.  I was going to work on my garden and plant some flowers. I have … [Read more...]

Homemade Ranch Dressing

Homemade Ranch Dressing. Who doesn't love ranch dressing? I put it on everything and dip it in everything. I especially love to dip Ranch Dressing in my chicken fingers that I get at Hornbacher's at the grocery store for lunch. You can easily make it at home with just the right spices, some buttermilk, and some mayo. Doesn't have to be mayo either, you could use greek yogurt even. Add in some buttermilk and mayo and stir.  If you don't have buttermilk on hand, you can always use regular … [Read more...]
