I am a huge fan of Chinese food. Growing up it was one of my mom’s favorite foods, so we had it quite a bit. I always enjoy trying new Chinese food restaurants. Luckily for me, there is a really good place right across the street from my townhome complex. […]
What excites me about cooking main dishes? I really enjoy seeing the faces of my friends brighten up as they take a bite of some dish I prepared. When we have been working all day and our bellies are empty, there is nothing quite like a plate of yummy food. I love food and more particularly food that tastes good. It is fun experimenting in the kitchen and coming up with flavor profiles that dance on the palette. I don’t always cook at home though. About once a month I get together with a group of people, “Foodie group”, and eat dinner at some place new. It is a great time for friends to be together enjoy one another’s company and of course eat.
About 70% of my blog is baking and desserts but I still found a place for my main dishes. Here you will find steak, hamburgers, pizza and more!

Every year for my birthday, I get a group together of family and friends and do an over-the-top barbecue at my house. I don’t do hamburgers or hotdogs. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy each of those a lot, but that is classic bbq food. I go all out and […]

I am a huge fan of soups and stews. Especially during the cold months, which I will be honest isn’t very many here in Phoenix. One of my favorite stews to make is this super easy slow cooker beef stew recipe, that I make in my Crock-Pot. While I personally […]
I really enjoy eating black beans, they are definitely my favorite bean. So naturally I would love black bean soup. This black bean soup recipe is so awesome! It is so incredibly easy to make with just 3 main ingredients and 3 optional seasonings. It is a perfect soup to […]
I have always been a fan of pizza. One of my favorite kinds of pizza is French bread pizza. And I am not going to lie, I may or may not have eaten a ton of Stouffer’s frozen French bread pizza in college. French bread pizza is so extremely easy […]
