Two foods that I can never get enough of are fruits and veggies. Sweet and juicy, and without all the guilt that comes along with eating pizza and ice cream.

I’ll Have S’more of That

s’mores from whatscookingamerica.net
The smell of a campfire can instantly lift my mood, bringing back happy memories and warm feelings. Friends and family huddled around a fire telling stories and drinking hot spiced cider is one of the most comforting fall images I can think of. And it doesn’t get much better than snuggling on the couch in front of a log crackling and blazing in the fireplace.
And what would an open fire be without a s’more in hand?
So as we turn the corner to winter, with the first snow looming over our heads, there comes a gadget that will allow …

 

King of the Corn

grilled corn on the cob from myrecipes.com
When I think about summer cookouts I think pasta salad and corn on the cob. As a kid it was often my job to shuck the corn before tossing it into the steamer. Smothering on the butter and sprinkling on the salt made for the most delicious combination of sweet and savory. I hardly minded all the corn-hair that got stuck in my teeth.
Today, I tend to skip the butter and salt and just enjoy the au-natural sweetness of the corn itself. Maybe it’s the novelty of eating something with my hands that makes …

 

wicked waffles

One thing I love about the weekends is putting the cereal aside until Monday and indulging in some real stick-to-your-ribs kind of breakfast. Chocolate chip pancakes used to be my Saturday usual, but these days anything from omelets with toast and home fries to french toast doused in syrup and powered sugar are fine by me.
When I studied abroad last year I did a bit of traveling through Europe. I ended up spending a weekend in Brussels and the most memorable part were the waffles.
Belgian waffle in Brussels: best breakfast ever
Nothing compares to a true Belgian waffle; coated in crunchy …

 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies

 

Although National Peanut Butter day has come and gone this article goes out to one of my tried and true favorite condiments, Peanut Butter. I don’t know if peanut butter is technically considered a condiment but it is a spread that often goes in sandwiches so I’m going to say it is. Growing up I never really liked any condiments, I hated ketchup, never was big on jam, butter is kind of boring and I have only recently started to like mustard and cream cheese (I feel like those two words should never be next to each other, let alone …
