Chocolate Covered Strawberries



Strawberries are everywhere. Since June has brought me a bounty, I will eat them without complaint. If you can dip a strawberry, you can cover them in chocolate. What makes them all different is the brand of chocolate you choose to use.

Mint Syrup


Cool, refreshing, mint. Can you smell it? I've got a lot of mint growing. It can be invasive, so I grow mine in a pot. Thankfully it returns every summer, and it's delicious in tea.

Grilled Tacos


The other day my friend, Jen, and I were at the store and tired as all get out. On our way to the checkout stand she stopped while staring at what I thought was a random shelf. She had me grab a box of flat-bottomed taco shells, a can of re-fried beans, and a jar of salsa. She promised that dinner was going to be quick and easy.

Spinach Pasta Shrimp With Creamy Lemon Sauce



The ease of which shrimp cooks makes them a good protein for summer. Saute them, mix them with noodles, add a sauce and you've got dinner.

Strawberries and Cream Dip


June means strawberries. Red, delicious, sweet strawberries. When I was in Nursing School, one of my fellow classmates brought Strawberries and Cream Dip for a snack. (Shout out, Laurie, if you're reading this.) It was one of those times when you really want to eat it all, but you can't because it would be rude.

Amaretto Tiramisu


I wondered if this post would ever make it to the blog. It is SO easy to make. It's fast, other than the few hours it takes to set. It requires only a few ingredients, and it's delicious. So what's the problem?

Weekend Omelet One


Saturday's mean breakfast at my house. Kevin isn't working, and we can sleep in. When we're ready, we get up, Kevin cathches up on the news, and I make breakfast. I usually make some sort of egg, potato, and occasionally a meat. I honestly don't know what it's going to be until it's finished. Given that, I named this Weekend Omelet One, because there are surely more to come.
