Antioxidant Rich Blood Orange and Blueberry Salad

I have a confession to make; I’d never even tried a blood orange before making this Blood Orange and Blueberry Salad. Oh sure I’d seen them in the stores often enough, and on other people’s blogs, but since I’m not that fond of eating citrus fruits on their own, I’ve never added them to my shopping cart. Until now!

Uncommonly Good Homemade Avocado Shrimp Sushi Rolls

Not long ago I went out to dinner with some girlfriends, and we ate avocado rolls as our appetizer. They were absolutely delicious, but they also looked far too delicate and intricate for anything I could (or would) possibly attempt making in my own kitchen. Not so, and I’m here to show you how.

Showstopper Thanksgiving Turkey Bread Bowl Appetizer with Creamy Spinach Ranch Dip

This Turkey Bread Bowl with Creamy Spinach Ranch Dip is an appetizer I brought to my brother and sister-in-law’s house last year when they hosted Thanksgiving. That year, I made him the morning of Thanksgiving and then all year I kept him in the back of my mind so I could bring him to you this year. After all, he’s just too cute (and tasty) not to share with you here.

Zippy Pimento Cheese Mashed Potatoes

I’m not usually one to follow traditions when it comes to food and food holidays like Thanksgiving. What can I say? I get bored easily, and I like to try new things. It’s not always something that my family appreciates, but if I’m the one doing the cooking, then I’m the one who gets to decide what’s on the menu. *insert evil laughter here*
