Tequila Infused Queso Fundido


When I started linking up to Michelle’s Sunday recipe link party over at Ms. enPlace I went through her blog, because I’m nosy like that.  I like to see where I’m sharing at.  It’s cool to share, but sharing with people who get you and like the same kind of stuff (food) is even more fun.  Well, I noticed one of Michelle’s top 5 viewed posts was Chicken Florentine (yum!) for something

Pork Tinga with Potatoes, Avocado & Fresh Cheese


This week is the monthly potluck at I Heart Cooking Clubs.  I came into the mix in the middle of the Rick Bayless cookbook tour.  Now with it being June, I’m curious to find out when we have a new cook/chef to follow and learn from.  I can’t wait to find out who’s next!  With the past chef list on the IHCC site, I know it will be a good

Foodie Fun & Cooking Clubs

Have you ever noticed the Foodie Fun section of my sidebar?     Scroll down, keep scrolling…there.   It’s about time I tell you about the goods people.  I love to cook and bake.  That’s no secret.  But stretching my taste buds and cooking limits is one of my favorite things that blogging has done to my cooking prowess.  Stepping outside my comfort zone and tackling recipes from assigned chefs,

Mango Lime Tart


My favorite thing to bring to a potluck is dessert.  Maybe it’s because I’m picky or because I almost always have a dessert recipe I can’t wait to try.  Either way, I’m bringing dessert to this week’s I Heart Cooking Club’s potluck.  Don’t forget to check out all the other potluck recipes being shared over at IHCC, including the one from by IHCC buddy Michelle.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Avocado Peach Salsa 2

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are 100% mine. Hi, my name’s Julie and I’m a grilling virgin. You heard me.  I have never manned the grill.  We grill every once and a while {definitely not enough}, and when we do Mike is in charge. It’s not some “girls can’t grill” attitude.  I just never got out there with my

Jack Daniels Bottle Cake


If I’ve never mentioned it before, Mike works for an adult beverage distribution company.  We end up with all kinds of fun shwag around the house.  Today was the best!  He brought me home a Jack Daniel’s bottle cake mold and label stencil.  How cool is that?!?? I immediately wanted to make the cake happen.  I talked Mike into hitting Michael’s for food coloring.  I didn’t own a nice spatula for

Please tell me you did.” party food ever!  I say it’s

The Most Powerful Thing…


  The most powerful tool you have to transform your health or keep your health is your fork! Use it well and you will thrive. Choose poorly and you will suffer.  This principle starts at a very young age but it can also turn things around mid-stream if you’ve been using your fork in a harmful way.  Actually, I find that the less a person uses their fork, usually the
