Mussels with Tomato and White Wine

Mussels with Tomato and White Wine
I’m a coast kinda girl. The ocean is one of my happy places. If I can get there on my bike well double bonus points for me for combining two of my loves. So naturally it kinda goes without saying that I love all things salt water. Including seafood. One of my favorites are mussels. I could honestly eat bowls of these babies all by myself. Yes, I have. No shame. I lurve ’em. Don’t even attempt to take the bowl from me when they’re done. The cooking liquid is just as tasty. Best sopped up with some crusty bread. Don’t forget the bread with this one. Yes, I’m shaking my finger, isn’t that what you do when you want to get your point across? No? Maybe it’s just me.

Asparagus and Lemon Rotini

 

Asparagus Lemon Rotini

Y’all know how much we love our pasta around here. My favorite pasta dishes are quick and easy and take me WAY less than 30 minutes to get on the table and into my belly. The recipe possibilities are truly limitless with pasta. I’ve very rarely met a pasta dish I didn’t like, it’s usually one that’s overcooked which is an IMMEDIATE no for me. Who wants gummy pasta? Not me, the only gummy I want is in bear or worm form. Know what I mean?

Who doesn’t love a giant platter of nachos? I mean really. Chips, cheese, specifically REAL® cheese which gives this gobs of gooey goodness, meat (unless you’re vegetarian and then well I’ll eat yours) and beans. Heck to the yeah. They might be the perfect appetizer. Filling, don’t require utensils and they’re not too incredibly messy. Well maybe if you sauce it up and then you’re on your own. Just go ahead and grab some extra napkins. Can’t say I blame you on the extra sauce. I mean it’s BBQ Sauce amiright?

Dairy Free Chocolate Ice Cream

Dairy Free Chocolate Ice Cream

I’m kind of an ice cream nut. Like I will wear out my ice cream maker come spring and summer nut. The bowl stays in the freezer to be ready when I am. In fact, it would probably be a good idea for me to look into getting a second bowl. That’s how much I use it (you can find links for the products I use at the bottom of the post under the recipe). This ice cream is a little different from my normal recipe because it’s dairy free. Wha? Yep, it’s made using Lactaid milk. So all of y’all that have dairy allergies, intolerance or are just avoiding dairy (that one I just can’t wrap my head around but m’kay) this one is for you. It’s also gluten free and vegetarian. We’re ticking all kinds of boxes today!

Momma’s Peach Cobbler

Momma's Peach Cobbler
This is going to be an incredibly difficult post for me to write. I’ve gone back and forth and finally decided that sharing this is something I need to do for me. I’ve poured myself a whiskey and I’m just going to write like I was pulling off a band-aid and hope it makes some sort of coherent sense. I’m also hoping that these photos are in focus because it’s hard to tell when your eyes are puffy and red. If you’re just wanting an incredibly delicious peach cobbler recipe then please go ahead and scroll down to the bottom now for the recipe. You won’t be disappointed. I’m incredibly biased, but it’s ridiculously delicious. Anyone, whose ever tried it has agreed with me. It’s by far the best peach cobbler I’ve ever had in my life and I’m from the South so that’s saying something.

I love lemons. Like I eat them like candy love them. Yes, I’m one of those people. I like them in my water, I like them sliced. I like lemon head candies, I like them in all the desserts. You get the picture. Lemon all the things. Yes, please and thank you. Want to know what’s even better than a lemon dessert to me? A NO BAKE lemon dessert. An easy peasy throw it together no bake luscious lemon treat. That’s what I’m talking about.
