philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers

stuffed peppers_5

I love a good philly cheesesteak sandwich. I mean, what’s not to love? Cheese, sauteed veggies, steak, delicious bread… oh so good. I’ve never attempted to make my own cheesesteak sandwich because it sounds labor intensive to slice the meat so thin. And I also don’t have a flattop to properly cook the meat. I have been eyeing these from the Little Kitchen, but haven’t …

Make Ahead French Toast Casserole

daisi - April 24, 2015

This Easter, since the baby is still sleeping a lot, I wanted to host everyone at our house. Baby sleep is a topic I google 24/7, so I’m serious about him getting his day sleep any way we can. And speaking of the baby… since he’s been around I don’t have a whole lot of time to spend in the kitchen. This lead me to …

acorn squash

Well, time has flown by. I’m now 40+ weeks along, just waiting ever-so-patiently for baby O to make their debut. A lot of things have contributed to my non-updates. The most significant one is the fact that my laptop broke. Not easy to update a blog without a computer. I got a new computer a month or so ago, but it has taken me this …

Roasted Garlic Baked Brie

daisi - December 10, 2014

As I mentioned on instagram, I’ve made this brie several times now but I always fail to get an after picture. I blame the vultures that are usually hovering and waiting for it to come out of the oven. And by vultures, I mean family (love you guys). But seriously, this brie is simple and delicious. Just takes a little time to roast the garlic …

week 24 blog

Everything is going great – I cannot complain at all. We started painting the nursery this past weekend (technically week 25) and it’s killing me not to share a sneak peek, BUT I know waiting until it’s completed will be even better. However, the next weekly update pic I take will have a tiny glimpse of something new… I am getting monthly ultrasounds now ever …

crack brownies

I guess the technical name of these brownies is: gooey cookies and cream double chocolate cake bars. Ain’t nobody got time for that! Let’s be honest, they should be called crack brownies. What else would you call layer upon layer of delicious chocolate and sugar? Let me explain. Layer 1 – thick, devil’s food cake made in a way that the texture resembles brownies. Layer 2 – …

week 21 blog

  So I thought I was going to get caught up by this week, but not so much. This is about 2 weeks ago…so I’m close! I’m dead serious about the heartburn, I am really dreading it if I get it. Although I’ve heard it means your baby will be born with a lot of hair, which is the cutest thing ever… I’m not sure …

week 19 mango

19 weeks was about 3 weeks ago – slowly catching up on the updates! Still working on finding a daycare, it’s crazy. I never imagined you’d have to call for the good places LONG before we even told people we were pregnant. Lots of movement these days, mostly first thing in the morning. I guess the baby is a morning person, which does not bode …

Zucchini Noodles with Bacon & Shrimp

zucchini noodles blog

I’ve been wanting to try the zucchini “noodle” trend for a while now. My mom got me a julienne peeler for my birthday so I figured I’d better give it a try. I didn’t have zucchini, but I had yellow summer squash courtesy of my baby brother so I used that instead. The peeler wasn’t the easiest thing in the world to use, but it wasn’t …

week 17

Almost caught up to the present (21 1/2 weeks) – after the first trimester, time has just flown by. I nested early and need to get some of that motivation back to actually start on/finish the nursery.   Went to Washington D.C. with my mom to celebrate her upcoming 50th birthday. We did and saw everything we set out to. My feet deserve an award …

cantaloupe skewers

  We were hosting dinner club and I needed a quick and light appetizer, as we were having bratwurst and mac and cheese for dinner (very heavy). A quick search of my pinterest board, found me these little cantaloupe, mozzarella, prosciutto skewers from the Comfort of Cooking site. I gave it my own spin by using basil instead of parsley. I also considered making the melon …
