Beef Burritos with Poblano Queso

I love, love, looooove burritos.  Breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  No matter.  All burritos are amazing in my book and great when eaten for any meal.  I found this recipe from Laura at Tide and Thyme {she found the original recipe from Elly at Elly Says Opa!} and we made a few adjustments.  I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to spicy foods and these burritos have just the perfect amount of zest to ‘em.

A funny thing…both Laura and Elly must have magic burrito fingers.  We’ve made these a half dozen times now and I can never get them all long and skinny like those ladies do.  In true TiAn form, my burritos come out all short and stubby.  {Hey, they still taste amazing.}  They’re not healthy.  They’re not paleo, low-carb, or free of anything really.  They are however, damn delicious.  Make them.  You know you want to…

Sun-Dried Tomato Soup with a Prosciutto & Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwich

A few months ago I purchased a cookbook titled “Williams-Sonoma Soup of the Day, 365 Recipes for Every Day of the Year” by Kate McMillan.  We’ve only made a handful of recipes from this book so far, but every single one of them has been absolutely delicious and really, really easy to make.  {I posted this Chorizo and Chicken Stew with Avocado Crema last October.}

We were browsing through the book for a delicious soup to make when my eyes got really wide after coming to a page with this sun-dried tomato recipe.  It had some beautiful lumps of crab on top of it.  I would have never thought to add that to a soup like this, but the crab meat was amazing on top of the soup!  The mild flavor of the crab went so well with the strong flavors of the soup.  And as for the grilled cheese sandwich…it is definitely the best one I’ve ever had.  Justin crusted both slices of bread with Parmesan cheese for a little added crispiness and the avocado and prosciutto were delicious with the cheese.

Fried Eggs & Potato Pancakes

I am fairly certain that breakfast is my most absolute favorite meal of the day.  When people ask that silly question, “If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life…” or “If you were stranded on a desert island with only one thing to eat…” I automatically answer with, “BREAKFAAAAST!”  I know it’s not one specific food, but it works for me!  {My favorite breakfasts…here, here, and here.}

These potato and onion pancakes from Deb of SmittenKitchen.com are absolutely delicious and can be used in so many ways {and not just for breakfast}.  They’re really easy to make {even more so if you have a food processor with a shredder blade} and they can be prepared in advance if you’re having company over.  Justin and I love serving them with ‘sunny side up’ eggs on top and a sprinkling of chives.  They’d also be delicious with a dollop of sour cream and maybe some bacon bits.  Oooooo or even tzatziki sauce and some feta!

Cabbage Rolls with Creamy Tomato Sauce

There are a handful of things that I have pretty much hated to eat my entire life, that I’ve now come to love.  Runny eggs, yogurt, and cabbage…just to list a few.  It really is a strange and neat process of how our taste buds change so much throughout our lives.  And luckily, I have a husband who loves to try new foods and eats almost anything.  Every week we try something new and usually I am over the moon {and full} with what we cook.

Justin found this particular recipe and although it was a hard sell on me at first, I’m so happy he was persistent in how much he thought I would like it.  It’s spicy without being spicy.  It’s healthy and unhealthy at the same time.  It’s meaty and saucy all at once.  It’s delicious.  The recipe itself may look a bit lengthy and intimidating, but I promise you it’s all worth the effort and then some.

Chai Snowball Cookies and the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

One of my favorite blogs to follow is Love and Olive Oil.  The photography is gorgeous and I love that it’s run by a husband and wife team {like Justin and myself}.  Lindsay and Taylor make almost everything from scratch and even have a few cookbooks out {breakfast for dinner, YES please!}.

This years marks the third year that Lindsay has co-hosted a cookie exchange for fellow food bloggers.  Once you sign up, Lindsay and Julie {from the Little Kitchen} match you up with three other food bloggers.  You make three dozen cookies and send one batch to each blogger and in return, you receive three dozen different cookies from three other food bloggers.  The cookie exchange has OXO, Dixie Crystals, Gold Medal, and Grandma’s Molasses as brand partners and OXO sent me four free spatulas just for participating!  The best part of all of this {aside from the cool free kitchen tools and all of the delicious cookies}, is that all of the proceeds go to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.   It wasn’t a hard decision for me to decide that I wanted to participate.  {Click the badge to read more about the exchange and how it worked.  Prepare yourself for next year’s!}

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Exchange 2013
After all of the baking and packaging and mailing, I received cookies from two other bloggers.  I am going to tell myself that the third blogger just wrote my address incorrectly and that’s why I didn’t get them.  {Insert fake smile here.}

The first package I received was homemade Milano cookies from Brittany over at Life of a Bama Girl.  Her cookies looked like professionally made Milanos and they tasted delicious!  {I’ll update with a link to those as soon as she posts the recipe.}  The second package actually had three different types of cookies from Allison over at Fridgg.  Allison made Cookie Butter Cookies, S’mores Cookies, and Sweetened Condensed Milk Cookies.  They were all amazing, but the hubby and I definitely duked it out for the S’mores Cookies.  I sent one dozen Chai Snowball Cookies to Laurie at Food is Love, Emily at Totes Delishy, and the lovely {unnamed} gal over at Life Taste So Good.  Be sure to check out all of these sites, they’ve got some delicious recipes!

On to the Chai Snowball Cookies…
