Bacon Wrapped Shrimp {& Heinz Ketchup Care Package FLASH Giveaway}

  Let me tell you a story about these barbecue shrimp. Shortly before spring break our junior year at Carroll College, my husband proposed over a picnic with Chinese food in my dorm room (we had a freak snow storm that day so the outdoor picnic he'd planned was a bust, but that's a story for another day). I said yes, I guess you…

Black Beans and Rice

If you have spent much time around here, you know that I have a thing for all things sweet; however, I promise desserts are not the only dishes to grace my table.

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna

  My family loves all things Buffalo Chicken, especially this Buffalo Chicken Lasagna. I have seen chicken wing pasta recipes out there, but they bugged me. Carrots?! Tomato Sauce!? Peppers?! All tasty, but not with buffalo chicken, not so much. I couldn't even bring myself to add celery into the mix, although I did serve it on the…

Buffalo Wing Bites

Recipes for stuffed pizza rolls, like these chicken-bacon ones, seem to be floating around. I don't think I have found a flavor combination that I haven't liked, but I haven't seen one like my Buffalo Wing Bites out there.

Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

Chinese food has a special place in my kitchen. It sounds a little bit corny, but just listen. If the Mr. had to choose only one food to live on for the rest of his life, it would be something Chinese. Not only is it his very favorite, he actually proposed over a Chinese picnic. Awwwww, sweet, huh? Now, do you see why it might be so near…

What's better than a really good pasta salad on a summer (maybe even a spring) day? I can't think of much! So, when I saw this recipe featured on Studio 5, I had to try it!
