Inside you’ll find dozens of fresh-made-daily treats to choose from and […]

Foodie Friday: Chocolate S’mores Pudding Cake

Hello chocolate my old friend…I’ve come to eat S’more again… This is a seriously, decedent twist on a classic summer snack. It doesn’t come together as quickly as the original gooey goodness but it is well worth the extra effort. The layers of graham cracker crust, chocolate cake stuffed with chocolate pudding, topped with cool […]

This place is all about the food AND the story. It’s a real “people helping people” tale that will have you craving BBQ by the end. While it was not our original destination, and we almost didn’t go in because we were confused by the signs, we are so happy we got out of the […]

Foodie Friday: Bake Off!

There’s nothing like friendly competition between neighbors to liven up any situation. Think Christmas Lights, HOA lawn of the year, chili cook offs, and now socially distant baking! I knew when I found this recipe that I had to bring it to you sometime during these unusual times but it had to be in spectacular […]

Foodie Friday: Coconut Lime Rice

If you’ve ever traveled to Hawaii, I bet that you’ve had coconut lime rice before and wondered how they made it. The rice was probably paired with some kalua pork or pineapple chicken or any other sweet, heavenly protein dish they’ve mastered. The paprika chicken recipe we paired this amazing coconut lime rice is the […]

The richness of the sauce, the subtle sweetness of the meat, and the airiness of the egg noodles all combine into a dish that melts any stresses or worries away. I came upon this recipe thanks to Pintrest’s ability to mind read (aka the underlying algorithm that […]
