grilledpizza How To Grill Pizza Quickly And Easily

Confession time:  I am not a fan of pizza.  I think it happened when I was working somewhere where we ate pizza like 3 or 4 times a week.  Eventually, I just became like “NO MAS!” and I tapped out.

That’s not to say I don’t ever eat pizza.  It’s just not a common occurrence.  And to get me to eat pizza, it usually has to be a really, really good pizza.  Enter grilled pizza.

I think everyone know that I love salads.  I mean everyone.  I stop random people on the street and tell them "I LOVE SALAD."  Yeah, they may think I'm strange, but it's ok!  When I find a new and unusual recipe to try, I just have to make it. 

Wasabi Vinaigrette adds punch to this great crunchy combination of slaw and spinach topped with toasty almonds.  Combine salad mixture, make vinaigrette, refrigerate and toss together to serve.

Iced Coffee Recipe at Home with Dunkin Donuts

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Dunkin' Donuts. I received a Dunkin' Donuts Party Kit to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

I have a group of friends that all like to get together and do stuff. We take turns hosting, or occasionally, going somewhere like a park or a restaurant, depending on what we’re doing.  Recently, my turn to host came up.  I figured we’d do some crafting, because, well, that’s what I like to do.  I also had a few projects I needed to get done, and figured if we were having a crafting party, it would help me get my rear in gear for these few projects. 

Since I was hosting this gathering at my house, I was responsible for providing some snacks and refreshments, too.  Since most of us like frou frou coffee drinks, I figured this would be the perfect time to introduce the new seasonal flavors of Dunkin Donuts coffee with an iced coffee recipe.

Cruzan Rum Lemonade Cocktail Recipe

A great cocktail can really make or break a day.  While I'm not a huge drinker, I do like to partake every so often, generally with a frou frou drink.  You know what I'm talking about, right?  A mixed drink, a fruit garnish, and maybe a little paper umbrella or something on a sword as a stirrer.  Yeah…I can practically taste it now.

Mediterranean Recipe for Dejage

mediterraneandejagerecipe 575 x 432 Mediterranean Recipe for Dejage

I’m all about quick, easy, and tasty when it comes to meals.  I suppose I should throw healthy in there, but let’s be honest – it’s generally more about the first three.  Minute Rice helps with all of these components.  I’m a busy person, and I don’t have the time, or desire, to slave over a hot stove.  Especially when a lot of the time, I’m just cooking for me. 

Dejage is a dish that I used to go out to have.  There was a great Mediterranean restaurant locally, that, unfortunately, has closed.  I scoured the internet looking for a similar recipe.  Alas, there was nary a one to be had.  After having it on a regular basis, I knew I could make a reasonable facsimile at home.  As with most Mediterranean recipes, this is loaded with good for you ingredients like olive oil, lemon, and chock full of veggies.  This recipe is as healthy as it is delicious.  It's really easy to change up, too.
