Orange Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Parfaits

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, I wanted to share a dessert that you could make in a snap, as well as something that would not feed an army! As much as we all love dessert, sometimes you just don’t want to have a ton of leftover sweets tempting you. And I hate […]

Asparagus and Grape Tomato Salmon Pasta Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Okay, not according to the calendar, but here in Florida it definitely feels like summer has arrived. When it starts heating up outside, we start turning to lighter fare over the heavy sauce-laden dishes we love to devour when there is a nip in the air. I created this pasta salad a few years ago […]

Fondue Moitié-Moitié

The Fondue ” Moitié-Moitié ” is a cheese fondue made out of Vacherin cheese and Gruyère cheese, mixed in a 50/50 (half-half) mixture. The Gruyère is a harder cheese, while the Vacherin is a softer creamier cheese. As they blend together, it makes a very nice, smooth, unique consistency. In a perfect cheese fondue, the […]

This one is my Lentil Bolognese over Garlicky Penne and it is a real belly warmer. Recipes for this contest […]

Shrimp and Bacon Flatbread Pizza

I was looking for something to make for the game yesterday and ran across this oldie but goodie. The combo of shrimp and bacon is the perfect pairing. And I love using flatbread as a pizza crust…it makes it super easy and quick to get that pizza put together, cooked and in front of you […]

Pork with Raspberry Onion Jam

With the holidays upon us, I wanted to share a versatile recipe to fit the bill for whatever type of party that is on your list this year. This recipe can be served at a fancy sit down dinner, it makes a beautiful platter on a buffet, and also makes great little sandwiches on a […]

Easy Creole Stuffed Peppers

As cooler weather blows in, even here in Florida, comfort food comes to mind. Something that will stick to your ribs and warm you to your bones. But that doesn’t have to be a recipe that keeps you in the kitchen for hours, simmering away. These flavor packed stuffed peppers are super easy to make […]
