Caribbean Jerk Chicken & Pork Meatballs are served with grilled pineapple & bell peppers & topped with Honey Lime Dressing for a super flavorful dish!
I was excited by the idea of Caribbean Jerk Chicken & Pork Meatballs, but the actual result was even better than I imagined!
If you haven’t tried Caribbean Jerk Seasoning before, it’s a Jamaican hot spice mixture, generally rubbed on pork or chicken. In this meatball recipe I combined both pork and chicken with a Jamaican Jerk Seasoning Paste that I have absolutely fallen in love with!

Did you know that August 3rd is National Watermelon Day?
I know, I know, who comes up with these national food holidays? Kurt (and I’m sure a few other people) think they’re totally ridiculous, but as a foodie, I love any excuse to celebrate my favorite foods like National Ice Cream Day. Yes, please!

Alright y’all, it’s time for a moment of honesty here, I’m totally obsessed with slow cookers!
Yes, it’s true, I am now the proud owner of SIX slow cookers!
I literally own a slow cooker from the 80’s, a slow cooker from the 90’s and now four slow cookers from this decade! And no, I’m not giving any of them up, no matter how many times Kurt tells me it’s ridiculous to have so many slow cookers! 😉
For every party I throw, I cook up at least one, usually three or four recipes in my slow cooker. Slow cooking for parties allows me to prep everything the night before, then let the slow cooker do all of the work while I enjoy the party!
My Superbowl party is the perfect example of this. Each year, I prep 4-5 slow cookers the night before with different meats. Chipotle Honey Pulled Pork, Smoked Chipotle Brisket and Beef Barbacoa are always on the menu! I slow cook them overnight, then set up a taco bar for the party. This means people can eat whenever they would like and I get to watch the game!
This week I decided to put together the perfect summer crock pot fiesta, featuring an appetizer, entree and dessert, all made in crock pots!

Over Memorial Day weekend, my boyfriend Kurt & I headed to Philadelphia for his cousins wedding. Since it was my first time in Philly, I had to check out the food scene!
Of course I tried several Philly Cheesesteaks (you can read all about that in my Food Bloggers Guide to Philadelphia!) but I also tried some local restaurants that were recommended by friends from the area.
One of these recommendations was Cuba Libre, a Cuban restaurant where we indulged in an unlimited tapas brunch!

If you thought about putting your Crock Pot away for the summer, think again! Summer is the perfect time to use a slow cooker because it eliminates the need to turn on the oven and heat up your entire house.

Hello from Chicago Midway! I’m currently hanging at the airport waiting for my flight home to San Diego and thought I’d take a few minutes to share my most recent recipe obsession with all of you, TACO CUPS!
I first introduced these delightful little cups in a Ceviche Taco Cup recipe before Cinco De Mayo. I then introduced these Dessert Fruit Taco Cups for summer. Now I’m gearing up for football season with Buffalo Chicken Dip Taco Cups!
Yes, I know football season is 51 days away, and yes, this football loving girl is counting down the days! 😉
