Best Guacamole Ever


Something you should know about Herb: He’s a guacamole fanatic. Seriously. Guacamole is probably his favorite food (besides cheesecake!) I liked guacamole before I met Herb, and now I’ve developed a great fondness toward it as well. It helps that we can make it fresh ourselves (which we do, OFTEN!) and serve it with our Mexican themed dinners or as a snack.

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes


One of our family’s favorite side dishes is roasted potatoes. We chop our taters into bite-sized pieces, roll them around in olive oil and rosemary goodness, and then bake them until they’re nicely browned and crisp on the outside. Yum! You can have your french fries, America – I’ll take these much healthier and tastier spuds!

Spinach and Artichoke Dip


My mom requested that I make some sort of dip for her birthday cookout, perhaps spinach and artichoke dip. I’ve never made any before, so I thought this would be a good time to give it a shot. I wanted something fairly quick and simple, because I wouldn’t have a whole lot of time to make it. After reviewing and searching for several recipes, I finally found one that had a lot of great reviews and seemed simple enough.

Mark’s Rise-and-Shine Sourdough French Toast


One of my favorite things in the world is breakfast, especially when my dad makes his signature french toast!

Herb’s Bruschetta


One Saturday recently I took my Nana to the local farmer’s market to get some fresh veggies. Tomatoes were in abundance, so I purchased a few, not entirely sure what I would use them for. Then the idea of a simple bruschetta recipe came to me – putting the tomatoes with some of our fresh garden basil and cheese on toast! Sounds like a great lunch to me!

Sweet Potato Fries


We love sweet potato fries! It seems like sweet potato fries have really caught on in the past couple of years. Even Burger King offers them as an alternative to regular french fries! Sweet potatoes are naturally packed with flavor and don’t need much to be added to make them into delicious fries!
