Alton Brown’s Beef Stroganoff

Do you pin?  I do.  I was warned how addicting Pinterest was when my friend Lara introduced it to me.  Did I listen?  No.  Of course not. I love pinning and planning to make things and actually making plans come to fruition.  Last night I was on my cupcake board looking to see if I had […]

Spiked Chiffon Cake with Chocolate Whipped Cream

I love Alton Brown.  I don’t think I’ve been too shy about that fact.  🙂  He’s brilliant, has great recipes, and I love learning why food works the way it does (see: the science of cooking).     When I tried his Baked Alaska recipe for WLOW’s 1st birthday, I had so much chiffon cake […]

Scrumptious Sunday Menu Plan {Aug 2013}

Hi everyone!  I’ve decided to start doing these menu plans in a different format.  While I liked having something new to show you each week, we’re scaling it up a bit now and going big.  I’ll be sharing monthly menu plans the first Sunday of each month instead of meals for the week.  This is […]

Rice Pilaf

Rice Pilaf will take your same old side dish to a yummy new place!   Last night I didn’t know what to do for dinner. I had defrosted some chicken, but couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do with it.  I saw bacon and turned to breakfast burritos instead.  Yes, I make Brinner sometimes. […]

Sweet & Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Smokies

I got this recipe off my co-worker Rita at our New hire training pot luck.  This is the easiest, yummiest appetizer EVER.  I need to make a double batch next time.  They are completely addicting and they turn you into a greedy little pork lover…if you’re not already.  😉  I think Michael Symon would be […]

White Chocolate Pretzel Cookies

I think I’m on Christmas meltdown.   In a mere two days I’ll be cooking breakfast and going house hopping to see relatives.  But for now, I’m hitting the stores after work (like 10pm) to grab last second gifts and hiding wrapped presents from the boys.  Eddie  hasn’t learned he shouldn’t just start ripping them […]

Banana Bread Foster French Toast

About a year into our relationship Mike mentioned he makes a mean Bananas Foster.  The first time we went to Joe’s Crab Shack, he ordered the Bananas Foster crepes and completely devoured them.  I asked when he was cooking them for me.  He shrugged it off.  Six years later, he’s never made them.  So I […]

Vanilla Macarons FAIL!

Today’s post is brought to by the letter F – for FAIL.  I attempted a task I have been putting off for months.  Macarons.  Delicate crunchy, chewy delightful little cookies.  I even bought a book about them.  I’ve wanted to make them and be this magnificent baker forever and I failed.  I’m not out for […]

Hi WLOW fans – Deb here from Cooking on the Front Burner back with a comfort cookie.  Do you think cookies can be comforting?  I do!  Recently someone I work with admitted their mom in the hospital for a surgical procedure and the family members were coming from out of town.  I wanted to put […]

Gingerbread Waffles

I wanted to share something seasonal that would scream I-wish-I-was-in-front-of-a-fire snuggling, but a little different.  I have a little crush on Gingerbread.  Then I found these Gingerbread Waffles.  They are amazing!  Breakfast happiness on a fork, full of baking spices and that perfect cozy feeling.  These waffles will leave you feeling like you just got a big […]

Pumpkin Chai Hot Buttered Rum

The days are getting shorter and the evenings are getting cooler.  Fall evenings are meant for curling up under a cuddly blanket with a mug of something warm and tasty in your hands. One of my favorite winter time drinks is a nice hot buttered rum.  Butter, brown sugar, a few spices… add a shot […]
