Peanut Butter Bacon Doggie Ice Cream

July 31, 2018 by Nicole Collins It's my baby boy's birthday!!! Today, my little Charlie hits double digits. I can't believe my baby is 10 years old! Charlie has only been a part of my family for half of his little life, but it certainly feels like we've been together forever. He is just the sweetest boy in the whole wide world. And, he's a total mama's boy. His sister adores him too, though she'd never admit it to him. When I first brought Charlie home, he was so timid. He didn't have the best start in this world; but thankfully, his trauma was nothing a little love couldn't fix. If you're a pet parent, you know you don't just have have 4 legged children. You learn their habits

Sweet Chili Hummus

July 27, 2018 by Nicole Collins At least there’s hummus. Guys, do you mind if I take a moment just to be a little extra honest with you today? I mean, I know you love that, right? OK, so here’s the deal. I have been going through it lately. I’m finding it so hard to find motivation to do anything. But, I have like 1,000 things that I could and should be doing at all times. I’m usually a super organized person, and I’m usually 10 steps ahead of myself. But lately, I just can’t seem to get it together. I have not been able to find inspiration anywhere! I’ve got all these pictures that I just can’t seem to make myself sit down and edit; but the more I collect, the less I want to sit down and wo

Shrimp Scampi Dip

July 23, 2018 by Nicole Collins When I dip, you dip, we dip. Anybody remember that song by Freak Nasty? It was one of my middle school anthems. “I put my hand upon your hip. When I dip, you dip, we dip. You put your hand upon my hip. When you dip, I dip, we dip.” Oh the things rappers use to sing about in the late 90's. I bet that guy was a one hit wonder... Anyway, I don't just walk around singing random songs from the 90's. Actually, yes I do. My head is like a jukebox box that's playing at least 4 decades worth of music at all times. But regardless, I'm singing a dip song to you; because we're making dip today! So, I haven't really told you guys much about my new job, probably other than

Tabletop S'mores Station

July 21, 2018 by Nicole Collins You're getting a 2 for 1 lesson today! Today, I'm giving you a DIY project alongside a recipe guide! And, neither are anywhere near difficult, so you really need to just run out and grab your supplies asap. I wanted to work on a project like this, because lots of loved ones in my life have been upping their backyard game this season. The bestie is about to move in to a house that will soon become party central thanks to her in ground pool and her huge backyard. Another friend has an aunt with an AMAZING back deck that's perfect for testing cocktail recipes, AND she's got parents with a brand new (and totally gorgeous) gazebo. Lots of places to party this seaso

Reese's Pretzels

July 17, 2018 by Nicole Collins I'm officially declaring that Reese's is the cure for EVERYTHING! Having a bad day? Eat a Reese's. Feeling hangry? Eat a Reese's. Got a crazy sweet tooth? Eat a Reese's. Ran out of peanut butter so you can't stick your peanut butter spoon in the jar and walk around licking your DIY peanut butter lollipop? Eat a Reese's. And yes, I have a peanut butter spoon. When I was at Hershey Park 2 weekends ago, my friend asked me what my favorite Hershey treat was. There was not a millisecond of hesitation before I blurted “REESES'S!” out of my mouth. I am a TOTAL peanut butteraholic. Peanut butter is easily one of my favorite things in the whole entire universe. I actua

Cherry Peach Turnovers

July 13, 2018 by Nicole Collins Sometimes, things that aren't on the agenda turn out WAY better than the things that are! I had one of those experiences this past weekend. You see, on Saturday, I had big plans of lots of chores with high productivity. I had some recipes to test. I had some blog work I wanted to catch up on. I needed to cut the grass. I wanted to get some things together for a DIY kitchen project I'm about to start. (← More on that later!) And then, I was going to reward myself with a movie that I picked up from the library to finish off the night. But then, on Friday night while I was having dinner with my mama; I got a text asking me if I wanted to take a road trip to Hersh

Open Faced Heirloom Tomato Sandwich

July 9, 2018 by Nicole Collins I wish I could tell you all of the things I've bought just because they're pretty. I mean, seriously. If I had a nickel for everything I've bought over the years that I didn't need but had to have because of how pretty they were, I'd be soooooo rich that I could buy even more pretty things that I don't need! About 2 weeks ago, I woke up REALLY early. I was up a good 45 mins before my alarm clock was due to go off. And, I was wide eyed and bushy tailed. I'm a total early bird; so while most people would've rolled over and gone back to sleep, I decided to get ready and make a trip to Walmart. I already had Walmart on the agenda for that day, but I was stoked to b

Antipasto Frittata

July 5, 2018 by Nicole Collins It's frittata time! It's been a hot minute since I've given you guys a frittata recipe. How dare I deprive you of such deliciousness?!?!?! Please forgive me. Frittatas are back now. It's all gonna be ok. First things first. How was your holiday yesterday? Did you guys do anything fun? Did you stay up late to watch the fireworks shows? Anyone get an extra long weekend and have the next couple of days off? My day was scheduled to be pretty busy. Which is funny, because I don't usually do much on July 4th. I guess because it's, so often, one of those holidays that falls in the middle of a work week, like this year...right smack dab in the middle on a Wednesday. So

Shrimp and Macaroni Salad

July 1, 2018 by Nicole Collins Today is a special day, folks. I'm giving you my number one most requested, top secret, ultimate celebration recipe today! That's kind of a big deal. Ok, so here's the story on this recipe...this is actually a recipe that I picked up many, many years ago. I was probably still in high school at the time. And, it was a top secret recipe at that time, too. One of my high school friends had an aunt, Aunt Sandy, who always brought her famous dish to parties (at least the parties that I remember attending). And, everyone always swooned over how amazing and delicious it was. I remember her being very tight lipped about the recipe, because it was her special thing. I t
