Cheese and crackers are this month’s #ImprovCookingChallenge theme – and one of my favorite snacks. They’re the main ingredients in this appetizer – but they’re elevated to something perfect for a dinner party.
This savory take on cheesecake features a crust made of crushed crackers and three different kinds of cheeses.
This post is sponsored – I received a complimentary copy of A Place At The Table for review. All opinions are mine alone.
How many of you are cooking up a dish tomorrow that’s been passed down? One that celebrates your heritage? It’s no secret that America is a melting pot and one of the places it’s most evident is in our culinary culture – and that’s exactly what’s on display in The Vilcek Foundation‘s new cookbook.
A Place at the Table is a beautiful celebration of the diversity that makes America such a beautiful place.
I’ve been feeling like I’m barely keeping up since school started. Every time I feel like I’m getting ahead, something happens that knocks me back a few days. Currently, the little one is on day five of a fever.
With all the craziness, I’ve been opting for kitchen projects that will make things easier for me – like these breakfast cookies.
Fall means tailgates! Do you have any planned this season?
At this point in our lives, tailgating is mostly curling up on the couch with a good game snack when the kids allow. I’ll be honest, though, the current state of the Giants makes me nervous. Hopefully they’re watchable this season.
Of course, watchable or not, there’s always the snacks.
Is it even summer if you don’t end up drowning in zucchini at some point? I think not.
Between our garden and our CSA, we always have plenty of zucchini around. I have, of course, been experimenting with lots of new, fun recipes – but I just keep coming back to zucchini bread. It’s a classic.
This loaf is our favorite. It’s a little heavy on the nutmeg which gives the loaf a nice spice. Pecans and chocolate chips are mixed in, too, to add a little sweetness and texture.
This recipe does make a big batch, so it’s great to share with neighbors – or freeze a loaf for later!
A few weeks ago, one of my friends hosted a freezer-friendly breakfast food swap. Everyone made up a big batch of something and we split them all up so everyone went home with a stock of grab-and-go breakfasts for their freezer. It was pretty genius.
It also introduced us to breakfast cookies. And now that we’ve been introduced, we’re here for the breakfast cookies.
