The weather in NC has been so flip floppy, with one day it being cold and windy till the next day it being bikini weather. Well my body isn’t bikini ready yet soooo womp womp. Either way, I like hot drinks year round, no matter what the weather. My husband thought I was crazy when we went to South Florida and I ordered hot coffee in 90 degree weather. I don’t know, there’s just something about that warm drink in my belly.
Despite the wacky warm weather, I found it the perfect time to talk about this Shamrock Mint Hot Chocolate recipe since St. Patrick’s Day is near.

I know, there is a lot of history behind the Holiday and I appreciate that…but I really get excited about them turning that river in Chicago green.I know, I’m a little nerdy but green is my favorite color.

I may be a bit late to the game but I just found my love for chai tea! I was never a big tea drinker but started getting into them when I decided to give up coffee for lent last year. You can read about that experience here.

Well, I’ve always loved cupcakes but decided it was time to bring my two loves together. Say hello to these Chai Tea Cupcakes with Buttercream Icing!

Cauliflower…oh the wonderful neglected vegetable in my kitchen. I loved cauliflower growing up, especially raw dipped in tons of ranch. But for the last few years, cauliflower has been pretty absent from my diet. Such a shame. Now that I’m a grown up, a wife, and a parent, I think it’s time I start incorporating this vegetable (and a host of others I neglected) back into our kitchen and into our diet. First step will be with this easy roasted cauliflower and sweet potato recipe.
This Mini Spinach & Mozzarella Stuffed Meatloaf Recipe is perfect for any weeknight dinner. Enjoy it with a side of mashed potatoes for a complete meal. This post may contain affiliate links, please read my full disclosure here.
Oh for the love of meatloaf! Well, for the love of mozzarella stuffed meatloaf. Add some spinach to it and it’s the perfect combo.
Our household loves meatloaf but the typical meatloaf requires a big hunk of meat be baked in an oven for an entire hour. That’s a super long time if you’re making it for a weeknight dinner. It’s definitely not worth it if all you’ll hear for an entire hour is “is it done yet” and “let’s just order pizza, I’m starving.” Dang on hubby and kid.
These mini meatloafs come together in a breeze and only require a 25-30 minute bake time. The advantage of making any dish in mini form is usually less cooking time. Plus, these meatloafs are just so darn cute!

I love speaking Jamaican patios but my mom tells me I sound horrible when I try. Although I was raised in a Jamaican household, I was raised in the lovely states of Maryland and Florida and only visited Jamaica once in a while. When I speak patios I sound like the actors in Cool Runnings. Great movie but horrible accents. Moving on…

Ahhh Valentine’s Day, It can’t get her soon enough. Flowers, candy, love…blah. hehehe. I like Valentine’s Day but hubby and I aren’t too big on celebrating it. I think we show each other love each and everyday by small gestures. He makes me coffee every morning, I drink it and I cook him a fabulous meal almost every night. At least I think it’s always a fabulous meal. Ok, enough about our love, you are waiting to hear about these red velvet cupcakes and why they are the best in the world.
This Sweet Chilli Thai Cucumber Salad is the perfect refreshing salad to go along any meal. Chop, chop, chop the veggies and herbs and let it marinate for a great salad.
Finally, a salad recipe! woo hoo! Although I am sure most readers don’t mind the baked goods, like this Mini Rum Carrot Cake or the comfort food like this Creamy Baked Macaroni and Cheese. Hehehe. But like everyone else, I’ve made a resolution to get more veggies in my diet. Now don’t get me wrong, we were doing pretty well with getting veggies in our diet but I know my hubby and baby girl were getting a wee bit tired of the same ol’ side salad with dinner every night. That’s where this cucumber salad comes about.
