Beer Braised Beef with Smoked Gouda Mash

September 30, 2018 by Nicole Collins OK, here we go. My first official whine of the season! One of my least favorite things about this time of year, specifically, is that the temperature can change 20-30 degrees over the course of the day. Cold, warm, cold is such a pain in the butt! Plus, it's the absolute worst trying to think about what in the world to wear to accommodate the crazy weather. On Wednesday, I was sweating my buns off. It was ridiculously humid, and it was 78 unpleasant degrees inside of my house. Then, just 24 hours later on Thursday, I had to turn the heat on in the car because it was only 60 degrees. Does that sound awful or what? I'm already feeling the effects of the slo

Cookie Butter Tasty Cakes

September 29, 2018 by Nicole Collins Guys, I feel like I've been such a bad friend lately! I'm so sorry I've been off the radar this week. I've just been sooooo busy! I haven't been able to even stop and catch my breath this week. But, I have some really good news to report. Well, good news for me anyways. My. Kitchen. Is. Finished. Terminado. Finito. Done. Done. DONE! I spent the first part of the week taking my kitchen apart (again) in preparation for my countertop install, and then spent the next 2 days after that putting it back together. I heard a rumor that the sun finally found Baltimore, and it's going to stay around for a few days. So, I may actually be able to take some pics to sha

Freezer Breakfast Burritos Two Ways- Part 2!

September 22, 2018 by Nicole Collins Freezer meals have pretty much been saving me lately. I have just been soooo busy! I know I've given you little bits and pieces about this kitchen project that has turned in to much more than the original plan. But seriously, I really feel like I'm in the home stretch. The counters will be in SOON! Like Monday, soon. (Yes, there are new counters now). And as soon as that's done, I can finish hanging the backsplash. That will be the absolute last thing that needs to be done...until someone reminds me of the next round of things that I really should do while I'm upgrading everything. I can't tell you how many people have suggested that I just get new applia

Prosciutto, Melon, and Fried Goat Cheese Salad w/ Honey Balsamic Reduction

September 18, 2018 by Nicole Collins Guys, when did it become more than halfway through September? Is it just me, or is this year FLYING by? I can't believe we're a few days away from the first day of fall. We're getting in to my least favorite time of year. You guys should know by now that I am not built for the cold weather, and it is slowly but surely creeping up on us. First of all, I'd like to file a complaint. I feel like we got totally gypped of a summer here in Baltimore. I mean, the temperature sure was right for summer. It was even more HUMID than normal this year. It was the kind of humid where you needed another shower the second you stepped outside. But, that didn't matter much,

Donut Burger

September 14, 2018 by Nicole Collins You guys are not ready for what I'm about to do for you today. Today's recipe is not going to be falling on the 21 Day Fix approved list any time soon. BUT, it could very possibly be the most delicious thing you'll ever put in your mouth. So, I'd eat salad for the rest of my life just for one of today's recipe every now and then. First, let me tell you the story of how today's recipe came about... Two weekends ago, my friends and I went to the state fair. It was so fun! It was a gorgeous day. We got to see a baby calf enter the world (which was one of the strangest most beautiful things I've ever witnessed). And, we got to spend some quality friend time t

Chickpea Salad with Roasted Garlic Yogurt

September 10, 2018 by Nicole Collins It’s just another Meatless Monday. I don’t wish it was Sunday. Cause that’s too close to Monday. And, I’d still have to run, hey. It’s just another Meatless Monday. Why do I feel like those aren’t the right words to the song…hmmmmm JK! Happy Meatless Monday everyone! I have to be honest. Meatless Monday is not something that I celebrate very often. It’s not so much that I’m a savage meat eater. It’s more so that the foods you need to replace meat with to feel full are usually on the super carby list. Or, they’re mushrooms. And, we’re still not at a place yet where I’ll entertain a mushroom if it’s not chopped up in to itty bitty teeny tiny pieces. Since I

Spinach and Feta Mini Pinwheels

September 8, 2018 by Nicole Collins Why is it that mini foods are so much more fun than the original? Is it because they’re adorably darling? Is it because you can have lots of them for the price of one? Is it because you can shove a whole one in your mouth without thinking twice? It really could be any one of those reasons. I guess the world may never know… Is anyone surprised that I’m like a moth to a flame when it comes to miniature food? Especially, because mini food is usually associated with appetizers and parties. And everyone here knows I’m a sucker for a good appetizer AND a good party! If you look at either my party or my appetizer Pinterest boards (which you can easily follow by c

Red, White, and Blue Shrimp Tacos

September 4, 2018 by Nicole Collins Guys, there's a lot happening today. It's the day after Labor Day, which means back to reality after a long weekend. It's the first day of school for a lot of kiddos out there. (At least it is in my county). And, it's Taco Tuesday! And, that's the most important one of them all, if you ask me. A few things that I want to mention before we get into today's recipe... First, I just want to remind everyone that it is still summer until September 22. Everyone likes to pretend that Labor Day is the end of summer. But, I am here to remind you that this is not the case. As if the 95 degree weather outside was not enough remind you. And, I love every sweaty little
