Soft Ricotta Cookies with Vanilla Bean Glaze

Happy Sunday!  This is the last week for my foodie project.  So sad for the project, but yay for me because I'm graduating on Saturday! Do you love cookies? (yes!) Do you love cheese?  (yes!) Do you love them together? (ew!)...  I know, I know it sounds gross.  It's like when people talk about pickle …

Bruschetta.

I wish I had a green thumb and could keep plants alive.  I have a succulent plant that I've had for a little over a year that I was so proud I've kept alive for so long, but now I think it's dying and it makes me sad.  Anyway, this dish was inspired by my …

7-Layer Bean Dip

My husband turned 40 on the 4th of July..... 40!  Luckily, he's accepting his new old age with open arms and hasn't cried too many tears.  For the special event, we celebrated with friends, grilled burgers and stayed cool in this hot hot summer by chilling in the pool.  We also had a carrot cake …

S’mores Cookie Bars

This past weekend my husband and I made the eight hour haul to Blue Ridge Georgia from our home in Orlando to celebrate my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary.  60 YEARS?!  That is so crazy and wonderful and amazing.  They're so cute together and truly are a fine example of what a successful marriage should look …
