Lamb Sausage Pizza

2012 was the year I went "Full Mom" and traded in my husbands SUV for a beautiful VW Mini Van. There are 3 TV's, all the seats are heated and lay completely flat, it makes the perfect road trip car. Which is the very first thing we did when we got it. We surprised our … Continue reading Lamb Sausage Pizza

Fancy Sauce

Fry sauce and fancy sauce both are cut from the same cloth. When my husband and I went to New York one of the first places we went to eat was, Shake Shack. Our idea of fast food burgers were flipped upside down! I feel every region has there notorious burger place. California/west coast has, … Continue reading Fancy Sauce

Creamy Chicken Taquitos

If you have kids you know you need to stock up on snacks. If you have boys you know you need to double the amount of snacks that you think would be enough. And if you have twin boys who are 10 you know you need to live next door to a Costco so you … Continue reading Creamy Chicken Taquitos

Stuffed Figs

I have to admit that I stole this idea from a good friend of my husbands. Although, with a few minor tweeks. She brought these to dinner party  once and we've been knocking them off ever since. These are truly amazing, but figs aren't always in season. So a fig jam on good crusty bread … Continue reading Stuffed Figs

It's late Huckleberry season here in Spokane, it's also 5 o'clock! To be honest I came up with this because we had fresh mint from the garden as well as some leftover huckleberry syrup from our Swedish Pancakes that morning. Make a batch of your own syrup and have a signature cocktail for your next … Continue reading Huckleberry Mojito

This cucumber salad is one of my favorite things. It is also very similar to a quick salad my mom would make for a side dish when she would make teriyaki chicken for dinner. I've also made it just as a quick lunch or snack. More often then not I make this for a side … Continue reading Cucumber Salad

Pretzel Dogs

"Oooh back to school, back to school, I've got my lunch pack up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight". Is it just me, or once those back to school commercials start, this is the song that gets stuck in your head? My favorite back to school commercial of all … Continue reading Pretzel Dogs

Pork Lumpia

Filipino food may not be as big or sought after as other Asian foods, but even if you don't know a thing about it I'm pretty sure you have heard of Lumpia. Maybe you've had it but didn't know what it was or that it was filipino. When I was six years old, I moved … Continue reading Pork Lumpia

Banana Lumpia

There's an island in the middle of the pacific. That island is in the middle of a string of other islands, and in the middle of that island are the Healing stones or (Keanianileihuaokalani) which are just around the corner from one of my favorite places on this world, my grandma's house! In the back … Continue reading Banana Lumpia
