Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

July 4, 2013

We’re on our way to Belgium today! Yippee! I love when we get the chance to get out of the house and actually SEE Europe. I’ll be kicking myself in the butt the rest of my life if we don’t see as much as we possibly can while living in Germany. I can just see […]

Just Like Taco Bell- Chicken Quesadillas!

January 21, 2013

The only fast food that I have truly ever enjoyed is Taco Bell. Mmmmm, love it! I don’t get to have it hardly ever now a days, but back in my youth it was always my choice meal at the mall’s food court or when traveling. And my favorite meals? Definitely a toss up between […]

Creamy Herbed Spinach Dip

July 5, 2012

I don’t eat enough vegetables. I just don’t. Not nearly the “5 to 9” that they recommend. It makes me sad : ( Especially since I used to major in nutrition… so I am always looking for new ways to make vegetables more appealing to me and somehow include them more in my diet. Usually […]

Spinach and Cheese Bourekas

Anytime I can find a way to get spinach into my diet and give it some great flavor, I am THERE! This recipe did all those things perfectly for me. Bourekas are a Middle-Eastern pastry. They are generally savory and filled with meats, cheeses and or vegetables, with either a thin pastry or puff pastry crust. […]
