Turkish Nachos

October 31, 2017 by Nicole Collins The vampires are going to stay faaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrr away from us today! Because, after we devour a batch of these Turkish Nachos, our garlic breath is going to be on point. And, it's going to be worth every stinky minute of it! Today's nachos came to fruition thanks to a picture I saw on Instagram. But the picture wasn't of food, like pretty much everything else I look at on Insta. It was a pic of a menu board for a local Turkish food truck. The first (and pretty much the only thing) I saw in the pic was the menu item: Turkish Nachos. My bestie, Sultan, is Turkish; so I immediately sent her the pic asking if this was a real thing. I thought maybe she and h

Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

October 27, 2017 We're taking a little trip down memory lane today. I've always been a foodie. When I was little, I remember playing 2 things with my stuffed animals: school and kitchen. I had this Fisher Price Kitchen set that I remember having set up in our living room area. I don't remember what I cooked for my guests, but I'm sure they loved it. As I got a tad older, I had one go to meal that I could make for myself: baked beans with a cut up hot dog, chopped white onion, and cheddar cheese. You couldn't pay me to eat that now. But when I was 6, I thought I was one of the great chefs of the world. In my late middle school to early high school years, I starting reading recipes. It's somet

French Onion Soup

October 23, 2017 by Nicole Collins Are you guys tired of talking about my birthday yet? I'm not! But, as October is coming to an end, I'm going to have to find something else to talk to you about. DARN! Ok, ok. This will be the last birthday post for the year (probably); but I promise you, it'll be worth sticking in there with me. So this year, I bought myself a birthday present. As you get older, you get less and less gifts; but the gifts you do get also get a little more expensive. So, there's a happy trade off there. But, because of this, I feel like grown ups decide that they should buy themselves birthday gifts. We use our birthdays as an excuse to indulge a little bit and buy things we

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cookie Butter Frosting

October 19, 2017 by Nicole Collins The birthday festivities continue! I told you we’d be celebrating all month, and I meant it! Remember in elementary school, we used to bring in treats for the class on our birthdays? Did you guys do that? Is that still even a thing? I grew up in a small school with the same group of kids in my class from kindergarten through 6th grade, and at least half of the class had a birthday that fell within a 2 month span from October-December. I feel like that must’ve been trouble for our teachers; because on top of all of the birthdays, 3 major holidays fell in that range too. It’s funny, but though I remember always bringing in treats for birthdays, I don’t rememb

Seafood Stuffed Potato Skins

October 15, 2017 by Nicole Collins Go shorty. It's my birthday. I'm gonna party like it's my birthday. IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! That means we're having something EXTRA special today! Honestly, the older I get, I feel I should start becoming less and less excited about my birthday. But, that hasn't happened yet. So, I'm going to continue celebrating all month, as usual. Birthday month celebrating is totally a thing. Especially when your bday is right smack dab in the middle of the month. I mean, what else is a girl to do? I'm actually super excited, because I'm going to see a Cirque Du Soleil show today! I've never seen one before, so I'm really looking forward to it. My friend, Alison, and her fami

Sugar Skull Punch

October 13, 2017 by Nicole Collins Friday the 13th in October feels like the perfect Halloween season kick off. And today's recipe is soooooo Halloween party worthy! I'm going to embrace my inner Sandra Lee and tell you that it's cocktail time! And, I'm about to make you the superstar of all of your fall parties this season with this punch for grown ups! There are a couple of things I need to confess about this recipe...shocker, right? First, this drink did not come together on purpose. I wouldn't call myself a mixologist by any means. But, one night after a long hard day, I just started cleaning out my fridge, and this happened. Those are always the best creations though, am I right?!? Seco

Harvest Chicken Salad with Maple Cider Vinaigrette

October 10, 2017 I've decided that the best way to beat the fall blues is 80+ degree weather! I am sooooo loving that it's pretty much mid October, and I'm still strolling around in sleeveless dresses and flip flops! This is the type of fall weather I'm built for. Though, I must say, I'm not a huge fan of the 30 degree temperature span that we cover over the course of the day. In the 50's when I leave for work, and in the 80's when I come home. Not my favorite. But if the alternative is 50's-60's all day, I'll certainly keep what I've got. I've told you many many times before that this is not my time of year. I definitely go in to hibernation mode during fall and winter. But, this Indian Sum

No Churn Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream with Cookie Butter Swirl

October 7, 2017 by Nicole Collins The time has come for us to listen to the little devil that's been sitting on our shoulder this week. We've been good alllllllllllllll week. So now, we get to be a little bad. And being bad is SO SO good! As promised on Tuesday, we're celebrating the month of October with the fruit of the season: pumpkin. We started out the week being good and healthy with our Pumpkin Chip Nicecream. We got to enjoy the pumpkin spice craze without the guilt that often comes with it. Actually, let's talk about that guilt for a sec. I, for real, am ashamed of myself whenever I get suckered in to buying all the things that now come in pumpkin spice flavor. I feel like I should

Single Serve Pumpkin Chip Nicecream

October 3, 2017 by Nicole Collins We're celebrating all things October today! What's funny is that most things that are associated with October are not my favorite. Fall...yuck. Halloween...could take it or leave it. Orange...THE WORST! The only thing that makes October acceptable is my birthday. If not for that, October would be a total throw away month for me. #sorrynotsorry October has some saving graces besides my bday, though. Not many, but a couple. Breast Cancer awareness...someone needs to beat that mo fo, cancer. Birthday month...I'm not a celebrate all day kind of girl. I celebrate all month. And, I've already started, of course! And pumpkin... That's right, pumpkin. So, that's wha
