Summer Recipe Round Up 2018

My Favorite Game Day Foods

Game Day Appetizers Now, although I am not a big fan of football, nor have I ever been on anyone’s “team” (except for the Raider’s when I was a kid because my dad loves them…please don’t judge me I know absolutely NOTHING about football) I do love the food that comes with Super Bowl parties! […]

Game Day Appetizers - Chipotle Garlic Parmesan Wings

Chipotle Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

I’m a huge fan of chicken wings. I’ve made these garlic parmesan chicken wings before but this time I’m adding a special ingredient…chipotle! I’m a huge fan of chipotle. It’s quite literally my favorite flavor! These chicken wings are guiltlessly FRIED. And they are most definitely classified as a cheat day eat! I went all […]

Sweet Potato Tots

I’m always trying to find ways to “healthify” my favorite snack foods. Liked the butternut squash friesĀ I made? Well you have to check out these sweet potato tots! These sweet Potato Tots are simple, delicious, and kinda good for you! They’re lighter than regular tater tots, and they are SO delicious! You can make them […]

Olive Tapenade Crostini With Peach

This traditional tapenade made with California Ripe Black Olives is generally served with just a crostini. I decided to summer-ize this Mediterranean appetizer by adding fresh yellow peaches, prosciutto, and a sweet dijon and honey glaze.

Chicken Wings with Garlic and Parmesan

Chicken wings are just one of those things that I personally can’t get enough of. Pair them with a nice bold IPA and some crispy french fries and I can die happy. I decided to do a grilled version of Wingstop’s garlic parmesan wings because I love working on the grill and also because I don’t have a deep fryer and I hate frying in my tiny apartment.

Sun-Dried Tomato Chutney

Okay, so this isn’t technically a chutney, but it isn’t a tapenade either..and I didn’t want to simply call it a paste because that doesn’t sound cute…so I’m calling this sun dried tomato creation of mine a chutney. If you don’t like it I’m sorry. But, that’s just what we’re doing.

Tuna Sushi Rolls

I wanted to try a canned tuna sushi because I heard it was amazing! I was a little skeptical because I’m not a huge fan of tuna but I was pleasantly surprised! It was like eating a tuna sandwich but better because it was sushi style.

Crispy Zucchini Cakes

I love zucchini. I love zucchini so much because you can grow it pretty easily at home. I grew one huge zucchini, which was the only one I got off of my plant the entire summer because the dang birds ate every flower that could’ve been a beautiful zucchini.

Guacamole: Homemade and Delicious

Guacamole – Homemade or Bust I love guacamole. I love it on my burrito, on my nachos, and even on my steak. Every now and then I’ll go to a restaurant, even a Mexican one, and HATE the taste of their guacamole… It really is simple to make and doesn’t need much seasoning, all you […]

Brooke’s Bruschetta

I made this awesome bruschetta over the weekend when my little sister and her girlfriend came over for dinner. I also made some delicious BBQ ribs and homemade BBQ sauce. The bruschetta was just our appetizer.
