This delicious recipe for Sea Salt Blondies combines a sweet dessert with a pinch of salt for a scrumptious treat by itself or part of an ice cream sundae!
It’s official y’all, I’m Stagecoach bound, and I’m taking the blondies with me!
That’s right, for the next 4 days I’ll be camping out, grilling burgers, and listening to some of the best country music by Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, Eric Church and Carrie Underwood!
I’ve wanted to go to Stagecoach for years. (For those that don’t know, it’s the country music version of Coachella, way more up this Oklahoma girls alley!) I’ve never had the opportunity to go until this year. Kurt and his friends have been camping out and attending the country music festival for 3 years, so I hopped on board. Of course, they immediately put me in charge of the food!
This One Pot Pasta Carbonara recipe contains all of the traditional carbonara ingredients, made in a new, easy way, in only one pot in 30 minutes!
A couple of weeks back, Kurt and I headed over to Flour & Barley, a new San Diego restaurant just a few blocks from my condo.
While the restaurant specializes in pizza & craft beer (hence the name!), it was their Pork Belly Carbonara that really stole the show! Don’t get me wrong, the pizza & craft beers were delicious too, but I couldn’t stop thinking about that creamy, dreamy pasta dish!
I decided to head home and put my “Bond Girl Twist” on the dish by making it a one pot meal. I’ve expressed my love of One Pot Meals various times on the blog, and it mainly goes like this, one pot = less dishes = my love!
Fresh blackberries and serrano peppers add sweet, tangy and spicy flavors to this quick and easy homemade cornbread recipe.
Growing up in Oklahoma, cornbread was a regular staple in our house, at my grandmas house, at my great grandmas house, pretty much everyone in the fam was serving up cornbread as a side dish with everything from chili to roast!
For years I’ve been whipping up this Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread recipe to go with just about everything, but today I’m putting a twist on my classic cornbread recipe!
I know what you’re thinking, yes, my Dad is on Snapchat, and yes, my Mom is on Snapchat, and yes, they’re 60 years old!
This is the direct influence of having a daughter that’s a social media enthusiast and professional food blogger. Every time my parents come to visit, I give them tutorials on the latest social media channel. They get on it and suddenly I’m getting snaps from food truck festivals, football games and road trips with Snapchat filters. The moral of this story is, my parents are not normal parents, they’re cool parents! (Mean Girls reference, anyone?!)
Almost 13 years ago, I made the big move from Oklahoma to California, and I’ve been loving the California lifestyle every day since!
I love to be outside, and the weather in California makes it possible to be outside almost 24/7/365! There are also so many fun things to do in California, from amusement parks to sporting events to lots of great shopping, but my favorite things to do in California are outside!
