Easy Breezy No Lime Squeezy Margarita

I remember my first introduction to tequila.  It was at the bar my parents owned and even though I wasn't old enough to drink I remember the cool thing for our customers to do was to get the last shot out of a tequila bottle so you could eat the worm at the bottom of the bottle.  I remember watching them do this as a kid and thinking that was ...

Super Simple Salmon Supper

People that know me know that I am loud.  I am pretty much always loud.  But what some people may not know is that depending on the day or my mood my speech has several different ways of connoting itself. If I have been talking (or tawking) to my Mom, my sister or my bro-in-law my accent goes very Jersey.   It is a pure Exit 10,  South ...

Junk in the Trunk Chicken

It's no secret that I like to cook.  I wouldn't be doing this blog if I didn't like to cook.  And while I really enjoy cooking I also like to keep cooking easy.  And by easy I mean not only the actual cooking part but the cleaning up part as well. When I was growing up we didn't have a dishwasher.  We still don't.  My Mom and Dad for some ...

Avocado and Egg Whites

Hubby and I just got back from a sweet ass vacation to New Orleans.  In addition to touring graveyards, wandering the garden district and hearing some amazing music we also had the privilege of eating and drinking our way through the Big Easy. But now the vacation is over and it is back to reality. I always preach that one of the reasons I ...

The (nobody’s) Perfect Breakfast

Okay, I agree.  Not the most appetizing looking breakfast but I decided to post this photo along with this recipe to not only share a healthy and easy breakfast idea but also to make a point. Nobody is perfect. When I was serving up my Baked Avocado & Egg breakfast one half went flipping off my serving spoon and ended up splattering on ...

Sriracha Chicken Legs

Back in December of  2013 Sriracha fans were warned of the coming Sriracha apocalypse. Huy Fong, the Southern California-based maker of Sriracha, was told it could not ship any more of its popular hot sauce to food distributors because the state Department of Public Health needed to enforce stricter guidelines regarding "effective treatment of ...

Salmon with Cool Cucumber Salad

As I have often mentioned in my blog I hate waste.  There is nothing more annoying to me than buying a tub of sour cream for some chili I was making, use about half and have the other half go to waste, unused and molding in the fridge.  Money down the drain!! So I have become the queen of mixing and matching ingredients in order to use them ...

When Irish Oatmeal is Smiling

Breakfast.  Never really been a fan.  In in the early years of my thin and unhealthy self I never ate breakfast, choosing to go from dinner the night before until lunch the next day without eating.  And even now in my thin and healthy self I am not a huge lover of breakfast. But I eat it. I eat it because I need to. Because I get up at ...

Grilled Tuna With Wasabi Guacomole

As you all know I love avocados and have been known to ramble on and on about my infatuation with their taste, many health benefits and versatility.  So like any good love affair it is important to keep the spark alive by finding ways to keep things fresh and exciting and my Wasabi Guacomole is something I am currently getting it on with. ...

Flourless Carrot Cake

I love dessert.  I always have, always will.  Not having a little sweet treat after dinner is like not having cuddle time after gettin' busy.  Satisfied but not quiet fulfilled. It's pretty easy to find desserts that are rich and sinful.  But, much like the way I consume my cocktails, I am always in search of ways to at least make my ...
