Spicy Tuna Avocado Panini Melt

Spicy Tuna Avocado Panini Melt - creamy, spicy, melty goodness | Get the recipe on MyCookingSpot.com!

If I had to eat one kind of savory food for the rest of my life, it would be freakin’ canned tuna.

I’m dead serious, here. Tuna salad sandwiches, tuna & noodles, tuna croquettes, tuna cakes, tuna burgers, tuna casserole…I’ve eaten and loved it all. If there’s ever a day that I can’t think of what to eat, I turn to my trusty canned fish friend.

It’s not for everyone, of that I’m sure. I’ve had so many people turn their nose up when I mention having it for lunch – of course, that’s the same reaction I have when someone mentions olives.

The beauty of tuna lies in it’s versatility, and the flavors packed in this Spicy Tuna Avocado Panini Melt make this canned star sing! [Read more…]

Have you ever heard of a clafoutis? I hadn’t until I stumbled upon one on Pinterest randomly one day. I thought it was just a cake, until I saw what the inside looked like.

I was intrigued.

A clafoutis is what you’d get if a pancake and a custard had a baby.

A delicious, fruit-packed, eggy baby, dusted with powdered sugar and (ideally) topped with sweet whipped cream.

Traditionally, the French clafoutis is made with cherries, but I switched it up and used the fruit I had in my fridge to bring you this Blueberry Pear Clafoutis. [Read more…]

I love BBQs! I honestly do. In spite of my vehement hatred of almost everything summer, BBQs are the one thing I actually look forward to in warm weather.

I adore the idea of gathering around a big picnic table with friends and family, an array of grilled food before me, beckoning me to indulge in at least one of everything.

There are some days, however, when you want the feel of a summer BBQ without the hassle, and these Bacon-Wrapped Summer BBQ Hot Dogs are an amazing solution for those days! [Read more…]

Loaded Buffalo Chicken Baked Potato Fries | The ultimate side dish! Get the recipe on MyCookingSpot.com!

Happy Independence Day weekend!!

Break out the sparklers! After the patriotism and fireworks to celebrate our country’s independence, July 4th is all about the food.

You know it’s true. Patriotic holidays = overeating at its finest.

Firing up the grill, throwing on tons of juicy burgers, hot dogs & brats, steaks, ribs, and corn on the cob. Eating watermelon by the pound. Bowls of mayo-based salads as far as the eye can see.

Considering that french fries pair so well with all of the above food, I feel like they don’t get their proper due on the Fourth.

We could change (as a nation!) that with these Loaded Buffalo Chicken Baked Potato Fries!
