Caramelized Onion, Blackberry, Blue Cheese Puffs

blue cheese puffs

I love movie night. Whether the hubs and I are going out for date night to see the latest film, or we stay home to relax to watch a great movie.

I am a snacker. Obviously popcorn at the movies, but when we stay home, I like to nosh a little too. Especially if we invite friends over for some relaxing but fun time movie night.

I love to offer some yummy appetizers, and if those appetizers come with cheese, then that is always a crown pleaser and of course, one of my all time favorite. Cheese, yes please.

It’s apple season!!! Yayyyy! McIntosh and Granny Smith and Honeycrisps, oh my!

One of the things on my bucket list is to visit an apple orchard and pick my own apples. My home state doesn’t have any, sadly (orange groves and strawberry patches for miles, though), but one of these days I’m gonna get to one, and then my only problems will be which apples to eat first, and how to get them all home!

Of course, whipping up a batch of these Mini Cinnamon Apple Hand Pies will be the first thing I do when I get them there! [Read more…]

These cooler days definitely call for comfort foods, and what better way to say comfort food than a little heavy cream? 😉 I love that when I add it to anything, the dish immediately becomes that much more decadent. This dish is so savory and delicious, I couldn’t stop sneaking bites while it was cooking and after before serving it to my family!

We have used this as a warm side salad, and even topped a pizza with it along with some sliced up sausages and cheese. I happen to think it would make an excellent side to your holiday dinners as well! Who’s excited about Thanksgiving?!

Is there a better combination in the food world than chocolate and coffee?

For the sake of argument, I think not. Especially when it comes to one of my favorite desserts – brownies!

Or, in the case of this recipe, Coffee Toffee Brownie Bark. Perfect, crispy bites of brownie, reminiscent of the over baked edges half the world’s population loves.
