Gruyere Butternut Soup? Yes, please!

   I do believe that one of the many beauties of food is that we are constantly able to have new experiences by either trying new foods while out or cooking something new. Now, I don’t remember the first time I tried Gruyere, but it was a beautiful moment. It’s the cheese I tell others…

It’s not funny…I’m serious. Laughing Cow Cheese Alfredo

Well I started thinking after posting tonight’s meal on The Onyx Plate’s Facebook page (that you can find by clicking here) that it wasn’t too fair for me not to provide you with my recipe for Laughing Cow Alfredo. It’s just too good not to try. This is honestly one of my favorite meals that…

More Bacon Please! Bacon Biscuit Muffins

Confused? Yeah…me too. But, I couldn’t find a better name for these little guys. I posted very recently about the BEC Pockets, and the day before I had made these Bacon Biscuit Muffins. Don’t worry, I don’t eat like this normally. It sure is nice though to get up on the weekend and have time…

BEC Breakfast Pouches–Perfection!

It’s no secret that I LOVE bacon…however, I try not to keep it around so often, because I could literally consume so much it would be very bad for my health. It’s also no secret that I like to experiment with wrapping food in doughs for breakfast. Sooo…this leads me to today’s recipe. I had…

I would love to think we all enjoy trying new things.  Some more than others.  But, I know I am at the top of the list with this lately.  A really good friend of mine went to Mardi Gras this year.  She asked me if I wanted her to bring anything back for me to…

Feeling Hot??? Cinco de Mayo Main Course…

For the tortilla wraps, all I did was wrap up sautéed peppers, onions and shredded chicken with a little cheese.  Then I baked them.  Obviously, they came out looking like Hot Pockets.  But, oh were they delicious! Just like the previous post on layered dips, this is something easily customizable for your own palate.  Enjoy!…
