Sweetly Fragrant Garlic Lovers Pork Chops

This recipe for Garlic Lovers Pork Chops was completely inspired by a trip I’d taken to our local warehouse superstore (aka Costco). During that trip, and on a whim that I picked up one of those mega-sized bags of whole, peeled garlic cloves and tossed it into my cart. While I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with so many peeled garlic cloves (there must have been at least 500 or more cloves of garlic in that bag), my mind was excitedly thinking of all the delicious possibilities!

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.
