How to Organize Your Food Pantry

Although organizing your food pantry may not seem important, it can really help when you are in the process of making a meal and need to find ingredients fast.

Balsamic Strawberries with Angel Food Cake

Balsamic Strawberries over Angel Food Cake Recipe | MyRecipes

To pair with the Barbara wine last night I wanted a unique dessert that was light, sweet and would use up the HUGE container of strawberries we had in the fridge. This was quick and easy to put together and went over very well at the Mystery Wine Event. I didn’t have enough time to make a homemade angel food or pound cake so we used store bought ones, Target had great options for both. read more

March Foodie Pen Pals

When I rummage through my pantry looking for a snack I always think of Foodie Pen Pals. That chocolate bar, package of tea, seasoning mix or bag of crackers. Most of the time things get eaten right away but I do try to save a few things for that day when I am not really sure what I am hungry for. read more

February Foodie Pen Pals

Vanilla Apricot White tea that I think is a serious new addiction of mine, dark chocolate acai berries, pecan pie granola, homemade trail mix (I can’t get over how darn cute that jar is) and so much more. read more

Healthy Food: What a Mistake to Make! - Sneakers4Funds

The outlet mall is a dangerous place. Seriously dangerous. You spend 45 minutes driving there, fight minivans and strollers for a parking spot about a mile away in the rain, get elbowed by a woman who wants the same brown leather Coach purse as you do, wait in line just grab the clothes and hope they fit because the wait for a dressing room was 25 minutes. Realize that your trunk is completely full of bags and wonder just how much did I buy. Really not that much, a purse at Coach, some dress pants and a skirt at Ann Taylor, shorts and tanktops at Banana Republic, some new workout items at Nike and Under Armour but the best purchase was 2 pieces of Le Creuset cookware. read more

New Orleans: The Food

Spending almost a week in a city really gives you the opportunity to try some of the best food it has to offer. My 6 days in New Orleans gave me the opportunity to try a little bit of everything, from alligator to pork belly to etouffee and of course the original Hurricane. Most of my meals were spent with coworkers and customers, making it a little harder to get good pictures! But everyone knows I am a food blogger too, so they all happily obliged. read more
