Summer Orzo Salad

Summer Orzo Pasta Salad Recipe

Memorial Day marks the unofficial beginning of summer, and that means it’s cookout season!  One of my favorite things to bring to a cookout is pasta salad, and with my recent obsession with orzo, I thought orzo would be a nice change from the typical corkscrew noodles that are usually used in pasta salads.

Ah, the muffin. Cherished food for breakfast, snacks, and dessert. I especially like to bake muffins when I’m baking for a crowd, like when I’m bringing food to share with my Sunday school class. Muffins don’t require utensils so that cleanup is easy, and they are already made for individual servings!

It’s Meatless Monday! Herb and I don’t always stick to this, but we do make an effort to have at least 1 meatless meal a week, and we like to do it on Monday so we can exclaim that it’s Meatless Monday. My friend Lindsay at Vegan Yumminess would be proud!

Saturday – Memorial Day Edition

For Sister Spice, Mister Spice, and our mom (mommy Herb?) school is out! Memorial Day weekend is here already!

20 Questions with The Cooking Actress

There are cooks who act and there are actresses who cook, and Kayle over at The Cooking Actress is the latter!  I stumbled across her fun blog a few months ago and immediately fell in love with her yummy recipes and bubbly personality.

This is a recipe that Herb and I use often. We love it because twice baked potatoes are so versatile – they are great made with a variety of ingredients from veggies to meats to cheeses. It’s easy to mix it up! Though broccoli cheese is usually what we use in our twice baked potatoes, we’ve also added red peppers, mushrooms, different cheeses (Parmesan is great), and even ground beef.

Lemon-Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

For Mothers Day recently, I wanted to make a no-fuss dessert; no pie, no cake, nothing too complicated. I knew I wanted to make something with lemon and raspberry flavors, and I found a recipe by Emeril Lagasse that looked simple and, more importanly, non-fussy. I made a few changes, and these lemon-raspberry thumbprint cookies came out light, fluffy, and pretty.

You may have read in my 20 questions post on Monday that I’m still slightly intimidated by seafood. We just never really fixed it at my house growing up, mainly because my mom and Sister Spice don’t really like fish, although they do enjoy shrimp and some seafood. Anyway, I have vowed to learn to make some good seafood and I thought I would start small – with frozen shrimp.

I love steak, and I love it fixed in any way possible, but when I saw a recipe for steak with orange sauce in my Taste of Home cookbook, I knew I had to try it, and I made several adjustments to make it my own, and the recipe is as follows:
