    13 Delicious Brunch Recipes

    Stuffed Peppers

    I’m back with another recipe! I haven’t been posting many recipes recently, and that makes me a little sad. I’ll be honest though, David made these. I have to give him all of the credit, because they were delicious! When I was younger my Nana would make stuffed peppers, but I wasn’t a fan. I assume it’s because it’s food inside of a green pepper. What kid likes green peppers? Definitely not me. I love them now though. Stuffed Peppers are an entire meal inside of a hollowed green pepper. Whats not to love? Stuffed Peppers I started out by combining the ground beef and italian ground sausage, and cooking…

    Single Serving Sparkling Sangria

    Summer is approaching, and we’re spending most of our days outside. One of my favorite drinks to have on a hot day is sangria. The problem is that I don’t drink it often, and nobody else drinks it. That means a big pitcher goes to waste. I wanted to find my perfect sangria that I could make a glass at a time. Thats how I created this single serving sparkling sangria recipe. The addition of seltzer makes this sangria even better, because it keeps it light enough if I want more than one. Single Serving Sparkling Sangria This recipe is insanely easy. I started by adding a handful of frozen…

    White Chocolate Peppermint Bark

    Welcome to Blogmas day six! I’m today with another recipe post. Actually, I’m back with another chocolate and mint recipe post. Today I’m sharing with you my white chocolate peppermint bark recipe. I know I say everything I make it simple or easy; however, this time I mean it. It only takes two ingredients to make this. It’s so delicious that you won’t be able to put it down. I said last time I only like a little bit of mint with chocolate, but this is the exception. Somehow the mix of the white chocolate and candy cane together just works so well. Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. I may…

I thought making a blueberry lemonade was going to be delicious, and spoiler…

    Churro Bites

    One of my favorite sweet foods is Churros. I always thought they would be hard to make. This led me to only ever eating them at a fair or Del Taco. The other day I really wanted some, and I really didn’t want to have to leave my house to get them. I decided that it was time I learned how to make churros. The best part is that it was actually quite simple to make. However, I did run into an issue. I didn’t have a piping bag or a star tip. Luckily, I was able to use a large ziplock bag, but no matter how many times I tried…

    Homemade NY Style Pizza

    One of the things that I hate about not living in New York is pizza. Pizza in New York just tastes better. David & I have searched for delicious pizza all over Las Vegas. We found one or two places we do like. It’s no surprise the owners of those two are from New York. Unfortunately, those two places are not the cheapest. David decided he was going to figure out to make our own pizza, and he even wrote a book. You can get it for free with Kindle Unlimited (first month free).  I wanted to share with you my favorite homemade NY style pizza recipe from his book.…
