Steak and Potato Kabob Recipe

I am a creature of habit. I love routine. And when things get thrown off, I tend to get thrown off. So I usually stick to what I know. What I’ve always done.

Which is why I am here posting this recipe on the 4th of July. I know not very many people are going to be online today. I know a lot of other bloggers probably won’t post today and take the day off.

But like I said – I like routine. I am a slave to my schedule. :)

Banana bread goes back to school with a peanut butter twist and a raspberry jam swirl in this Peanut Butter and Jelly Banana Bread Recipe.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Banana Bread Recipe

I know what you are thinking – another banana bread recipe? But I say – is there really such thing as too many banana bread recipes? I think not!! Especially when you get peanut butter and jelly involved.

I seem to be on this endless quest lately to use up overripe bananas in a different way every time. (The funny thing is that I’ve done many variations of banana bread, but I don’t even have a basic banana bread recipe here on my site!) But food is supposed to be fun, and why make plain old banana bread when you can jazz it up with peanut butter and jelly?

This Chopped Cobb Salad has all of the flavors of the popular Cobb Salad, but mixed up making it more enjoyable to eat!

Chopped Cobb Salad Recipe

This post has been sponsored by Jones Dairy Farm.

Remember last year when I got all obsessed with chopped salads? Well, I know it’s been awhile, but I’m back again. This time with chopped Cobb salad.

I will be the first to admit that I love the way a Cobb salad looks. All the pretty lines of ingredients, so colorful and fresh looking. But every time I go to eat one, I don’t know where to start. I’m a girl that likes a little bit of everything in every bite of a salad. (But I’m the totally opposite with the food on my plate – I don’t like to combine everything there!) If you have a single serving Cobb salad, it’s a bit easier, but when it’s a big salad served to a crowd? How do you go in there and make sure that you are getting everything without looking like the greedy one that is trying to hoard all the avocados? (Or is that just me? ;) )

This is the reason I love chopped salads. No worrying about how to get everything in one bite, because it’s already mixed up for you. Including the dressing!!

Peach Napoleons with Sugared Wonton Wrappers

Photos and Recipe Updated June 2014

Originally published September 26, 2008 – Peach season is something that I look forward to every year. I’m jumping the gun a little bit right now, as it’s not quite peach season here in Utah yet, but I couldn’t resist. I’ve been dying to remake this beautiful Peach Napoleon recipe, and I can see myself making this dessert all summer long!

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not an entertainer. But if I was, this simple Peach Napoleon recipe would be in my repertoire. It really doesn’t get any easier or faster than this. If I didn’t have to wait for the oven to pre-heat, I could have had these done in under 10 minutes easy. And not only are they easy and impressive looking, they are tasty!

Bored of your normal beans and rice? This Enchilada Rice will make your tastebuds happy!

Enchilada Rice

If you had to choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, do you know what you would choose?

I know, I know. It’s a hard question. (And thankfully one that you never really have to answer.) But for me? I could easily eat Mexican, Tex-Mex, Fresh-Mex – no matter what you call it – every single day.

It’s a no brainer. Tacos, burritos, sopes, enchiladas… Yum.

Which is why I’m super excited to share with you all that I have paired up with Old El Paso to bring you all kinds of Mexican-inspired recipes over the next year. It’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it! :)

You’ll never want to have regular ranch dressing after trying this Avocado Ranch Salad Dressing!

Avocado Salad Dressing

So yesterday I made a salad.

That – in and of itself – is nothing earth shattering. I love salads, and love to eat them often.

But as I took my first bite of that salad, (which I will be posting next week), I realized that this salad dressing needs a post all to itself. The original plan was to post it all together, but you guys. You need this salad dressing regardless of the salad you are serving it on top of.
