Brownie Pudding

Brownie PuddingHello everyone! Sorry I haven’t been as active lately- it seems the time has gotten away from me. However, this recipe for brownie pudding will hopefully make up for lost time! This recipe creates almost a molten lava type dessert, with a flaky, brownie like exterior and a gooey, oozing chocolatey center. Drool-worthy. This dessert is incredibly rich and decadent, so you need to make sure to pair it with some vanilla ice cream and a tall glass of milk to avoid chocolate overload. This recipe is an adapted version from the Barefoot Contessa (told you Nevin had a crush :-0). Enjoy! Continue reading

Taco Tuesday!

Beef, Corn and Green Chili TacosIt’s Tuesday which means that we are craving some tacos! Nevin and I try to celebrate Taco Tuesday about once a month, but we often rely heavily on the Taco Dinner Kits you can buy at the Supermarket. The reason being simple: we are busy and we want a quick, easy, and satisfying dinner. Although the taco dinner kits are great, especially when dressed up with fresh toppings, they still leave something to be desired. This past Tuesday, I decided that I wanted to make my own seasoning and do tacos right. Making your own seasoning takes less than 1 minute and really does make a substantial difference in flavor. The addition of green chilis, corn, onions, and peppers gives these tacos a different flavor and a more interesting texture than just plain ground beef. I think these would be delicious with chicken too, we just didn’t have any on hand. Let me know what you think! Continue reading

Happy Belated National Ice Cream Day!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream SandwichesIt was apparently National Ice Cream Day this past Sunday. As such, ice cream, and unique ways to incorporate ice cream into a recipe was on my mind. I came across this Buzzfeed article on interesting ways to eat ice cream and realized that I wanted to make almost everything on the list. As a devout cookie dough fanatic, #10 immediately caught my eye. I viewed the original recipe here and decided to give it a shot. Heck, National Ice Cream Day only comes around once a year right? Anyways, these were as decadent as they look and an amazing treat!! Enjoy! Continue reading

When A Blog Gives You Lemons….


First, off I want to apologize for being a bit MIA lately. Nevin and I just moved into our awesome new apartment. On Sunday, Nevin’s two cousins came over and helped us move. As payment for their help we made them my meatballs, strawberry lemon bars, and Nevin’s famous lemonevinade. When making his lemonade, we decided to tweak the recipe a bit to make a slightly more tart version. I have updated the original post and am reblogging here! Also, as soon as we get a bit more settled I will resume full blogging activity! Thank you for your patience :-D

LemonadeWe had a lot of leftover, sad, dejected, naked lemons from making our delicious lemon cupcakes. We weren’t going to waste zested lemons, so Nevin, being the lemonade fanatic that he is, decided to make his very own homemade, fresh lemonade, or ‘lemonevinade’ as he likes to call it….
