Something glorious happened the other day.

Something that hasn’t happen in 7 years.

I.took.a.nap.

I actually laid down in my own bed in the middle of the day and fell asleep. For a whole 40 minutes.

Naturally I woke up suddenly and thought: what the heck just happened? Did I really fall asleep in the middle of the day? Huh, that’s actually kind of awesome!

Let’s make cinnamon rolls.

KFC Coleslaw Copycat – make your restaurant favorite right in your kitchen! Perfect for the summer BBQ’s and potlucks!

KFC Coleslaw a copycat recipe KFC Coleslaw Copycat Recipe

Last weekend, we kicked off the summer with our annual BBQ bash! There were ribs on the grill, corn on the cob and coleslaw in the bowls. There were s’mores and sticky fingers and lots of fun and laughter!

We live in Kansas and as true mid-westerners, we love our BBQ. My Hubby takes pride in his ribs (baby back, beef, short ribs – any kind) and has his technique down to perfection. I take care of the sides and dessert. One side needed some improvement. The coleslaw.

We have our restaurant favorites. See these Red Lobster Copycat Biscuits. While the fried chicken and KFC can be a hit or miss, the coleslaw is always spot on. We love it! Of course, I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t try to recreate it at home!

Designing the Ideal Kitchen with LG Studio Appliances and Nate Berkus

Designing the Ideal Kitchen with LG Studio Appliances  - inspiration and ideas for creating a signature kitchen! Kitchen Design Inspiration Board 682x1024 Designing the Ideal Kitchen with LG Studio Appliances and Nate Berkus Since my passion for baking turned into a food blogging career, I tend to spend a lot of time in my kitchen. I cook dinners for the family from scratch everyday and bake a ton for the blog. When you use your kitchen space so often, you learn its advantages and faults. And my kitchen has a few of the latter. I would love more cabinet space to store all of my counter top appliances and dishes that I seemed to have acquired during the 3 years of blogging. When LG Studio asked me to create an inspiration board that would include elements I would like to have in my ideal kitchen, I jumped on the chance to daydream. If I could, I would totally redesign my kitchen. The LG Studio Double Ovenwould have to be in it for sure. It has a LCD touch-screen control system and a convection system!  I cannot tell you how many times I told my Husband that I need a double oven. Imagine roasting a chicken in one and baking a blueberry cobbler in the other! Wouldn’t that be fantastic! Continue reading

One of my favorite candy bars is Heath bar. It’s also one of the hardest for me to find in the store. I have no idea why! For the past few months I have been trying to find it so I can finally make this bark. It’s been on my to-make recipe list for way too long! The summer is a perfect excuse to make it since it’s a no-bake treat!

I almost gave up until one day, while shopping with my kids, my oldest daughter grabbed a bag of mini Heath bars in the candy isle and said: Were you looking for this?

Well, yes. Yes, I have. Taking them shopping with me is finally starting to pay off!! icon smile Toffee Heath Bar Chocolate Bark Recipe

Easy S’Mores Ice Cream – easy ice cream with toasted marshmallows, bits of graham crackers and swirls of chocolate fudge sauce! You will go crazy for this ice cream!

Easy SMores Ice Cream from Crunchy Creamy Sweet Easy SMores Ice Cream Recipe

The first day of Summer is this weekend. If there is one thing that says summer its s’mores! We LOVE s’mores! I always have the big marshmallows in my cupboard and as soon as my Hubby fires up the grill – I try to sneak in and toast some marshmallows to sandwich them the ooey-gooey way between chocolate and graham crackers.

I have to say, I like my marshmallows almost charred. There is nothing like the smoky taste of toasted marshmallows. Love it!!! Besides the melted chocolate (I will always take chocolate first over anything else), the gooey marshmallow is my favorite part of s’mores!

As I have been obsessed with my new ice cream maker from Hamilton Beach (review and giveaway coming next week so stay tuned!!), I knew I wanted to combine summer’s two favorite treats and make S’Mores Ice cream. With the toasted marshmallow churned in.

During summer, my family is all about simple meals with fresh ingredients. Meals that don’t take much time to prepare, are loaded with veggies and ones that are healthy and fill you up with energy to enjoy the outdoors!

Recently, I was asked by Circulon to create a dish with Mexican flavors using their 12″ wok with cover. It was a perfect assignment for me since we love Mexican food! And after the recent success of adding quinoa to enchiladas, one of our favorite dinners, I decided to go similar route. This time I flavored the quinoa with lime and I don’t think I will ever make the plain one again!

I can’t even begin to tell you how much we loved this dish! The lime quinoa is absolutely fantastic! So fresh and so good for you! The fajita chicken comes together in a flash even though you make the seasoning from scratch. The red peppers and onion cook in just minutes and add sweetness to the dish. It’s a perfect summer meal!

Go, visit Circulon’s website to grab the recipe! You will love it!
