Homemade Beignets for Mardi Gras

Have you ever been to New Orleans? I have not, but it’s on my bucket list of places I want to visit. I hear the food is amazing, the people are fun, and the culture needs to be experienced at least once. 

But, until I get there in person making homemade beignets for Mardi Gras is a good way to get the party started!

Creamy Salami and Dill Pickle Dip

One of my favorite appetizers I remember from years ago is the one where you spread cream cheese over slices of salami with dill pickle spears rolled inside, and then you slice them to form little pinwheels.

The concept was super simple, and the flavor of those tasty morsels hit all the proper bells and whistles on the taste buds. I loved them then, and I still do now. However, this Cream Cheese Salami Spread with Dill Pickles is better and a whole lot easier. Honest!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Chocolate Covered Football Crackers

When I come up with recipe ideas, more times than not it’s because it’s something I have a taste for, or because it’s something I know I’d enjoy eating. These Peanut Butter & Jelly Chocolate Covered Football Crackers are no exception.

I had to literally force myself from chomping on all of them immediately after taking these photos, so then I sent the remaining footballs with my husband to share at his workplace and get them out of the house!

Complete Gingerbread House Recipe & Tutorial Plus Important Do’s & Don’ts

When I asked my mom and sister if they wanted to help me build a gingerbread house this year for Christmas, I don’t think any of us knew exactly what we were letting ourselves in for. 

With no plan in mind except for a few inspirational photos we found on the internet, we set off on our great gingerbread house expedition.
