Borek- Turkish Beef Rolls

February 25, 2019 by Nicole Collins Isn’t it funny how sometimes one recipe can have a gazillion different interpretations? I guess if you think about it, all recipes are really just personal interpretations of a combination of ingredients. Every person who creates a recipe has different taste buds, different ideas, and different execution strategies. It’s pretty cool how food can spark such creativity and individuality! Today’s recipe has me thinking about the language of food because of its origin. When I was in high school, I took an elective that was an international cooking class. One of our early assignments was bringing in a recipe of international cuisine and demonstrating the prepar

Mixed Berry Doggie Ice Cream with PB Milkbone Crumble

February 23, 2019 by Nicole Collins We’re celebrating our 4 legged friends today! Last weekend, we had a birthday party for my baby Bella. She celebrated her golden birthday this year…she turned 12 on the 12th. I still can’t believe I’ve been responsible for keeping someone else other than myself alive for a whole 12 years. I’ve had her since she was 10 weeks old; but I’m telling you, it seems like just yesterday that I brought her home. We were recovering from a snow storm on her actual birthday, so I thought we’d be in better shape to have her party over the weekend. Because mama knows best. And, mama knows that her doggies are a little on the messy side. So, birthday parties are had outsi

Breakfast Biscuit Pockets

February 19, 2019 by Nicole Collins So guys, I've been holding out on you. I've been hanging on to some big news for exactly one month. Well, big news for me anyways... I GOT A PUPPY! First of all, I owe you all a much overdue “thank you” for the outpouring of love and kind words when I lost my baby, Charlie. It really meant a lot to know that so many people were keeping us in their thoughts and prayers. And, the reminder that happier days were ahead was much needed. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know about this handsome fella. But, I didn't give you guys all the details about him right away; because honestly, we've had a little bit of a rocky time transitioning. He's a

Italian Sub Skewers

February 16, 2019 by Nicole Collins Guys, I’m taking a few polls today… First question: On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you love food on a stick? I think I’m at an 11, fo sho. I don’t know why food is so much more delicious when it’s either on a stick or in mini size. Maybe it’s the fact that you get the whole experience in one bite. Or, maybe it’s that these foods are so stinking adorable, they can’t help but be as delicious as they look. Here’s my second poll for today: what’s your “go to” sandwich? I have two…tuna salad and Italian cold cuts. I think I love both equally as much. I make tuna salad pretty regularly on my own (we’re talking for breakfast, lunch, and dinner); but Italian c

Seafood Pot Pie

February 12, 2019 by Nicole Collins I’ve got one of those serious questions for you guys today that I like to ask you every so often. Here it goes… Crust or no crust? I’m not necessarily asking about any specific type of crust. Because, unfortunately, I feel like the crust haters of the world are not a discriminating bunch. They seem to hate all crusts. And it’s a darn shame, if you ask me. That’s right…I’M ON TEAM CRUST! In most instances, I prefer the crust over what is being encrusted. Bread crust, pizza crust, pie crust…there’s not one part of me that would be mad if I picked up an apple pie from the store and they forgot the apple filling. I mean, I know I’ve told you about the deal I t

Foxy Valentines

February 10, 2019 by Nicole Collins Hey, my foxy friends! Happy Sunday! Who’s ready to get their craft on in the most delicious way today? We’re making something sweet for our loved ones today in preparation of the upcoming “day of love” next week. But, first I want to tell you how I really feel about Valentine’s Day. Though I’m totally excited about these treats today, I have to be honest. I feel like people get a little too worked up over Valentine’s Day. I see so many people stress themselves out about gifts, and fancy dinners, and setting (or trying to meet) totally unrealistic expectations for themselves and their loved ones. On the other hand, equally as many people fall into a really

Blueberry Biscuits with Cinnamon Butter

February 5, 2019 by Nicole Collins “Well, butter my buns, and call me a biscuit!” – Today’s recipe Did anyone watch that season of Next Food Network Star a couple of years ago where Chef Jason made that quote famous? He is such a trip. He had the FUNNIEST one liners. You never really knew what kind of expression he was going to spit out from week to week, but obviously the judges were into it. Because, he ended up winning. So funny! I didn’t just reach back in time for that quote. I went deep into the archives for inspiration for today’s recipe too! You see, I love to read cookbooks. And, I’ve got a pretty solid collection of cookbooks. But, some of my favorite cookbooks are the ones that ar

Breakfast Bistro Box

February 1, 2019 by Nicole Collins Coffee is the worst! I hate everything about coffee. But mostly, I hate the way it smells. So, that makes coffee shops, like Starbucks, a nightmare for me to enter. If for some reason I find myself needing to go into one, I pretty much have to hold my breath the whole time I’m there. Or, I’ll only last for a few minutes before I have to step outside. So, my solution to that problem is to not step foot inside of one. People usually look at me like I have 10 heads when I say I don’t like Starbucks. And, it’s really not that I don’t like Starbucks. I don’t like the smell of Starbucks. So, that kind of ruins it for me. I certainly love the non-coffee related it
