pollo rosa maria

carrabba’s italian grill is one of my all-time favorite restaurants.  there is not a single restaurant to be found anywhere near the lovely state of wa, so i’ve had to take matters into my own hands.  i believe i first made this dish back in october to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary.  it took a lot of work to create this dish, but it was most definitely worth it! i made a few tweaks to the original recipe, such as omitting mushrooms… we’re not big mushroom fans.  if you’re also a fellow mushroom hater, you may want to cut down the lemon butter.   other than that one tweak, the recipe is spot on! source: recipesecrets 2 chicken breasts, split for stuffing, seasoned for grilling 2 slices prosciutto ham 1/4 c fontina cheese 1/4...

popper grilled cheese

Dec 10, 2011 by

i missed out on a lot of awesome food growing up, due to my excessive pickyness.  food was too spicy, too meaty, too sour, yadda yadda yadda.  i think i could have lived on mac and cheese, chicken patties from the freezer and ice cream.  i’m so glad that i’ve expanded my food horizons so i can try new things!  this is another pinterest find, i believe and it will definitely be making an appearance on our weekly menu sometime soon.  it goes well with salad or a bowl of brothy soup. this dish combines my favorite food, cheese, with jalapeño poppers.  it all goes together with tasty fashion in a grilled sandwich.  once the peppers have been roasted, you can throw it all together pretty easily on a week night.  make sure to...

i’m taking a quick break from blogging about thanksgiving… for a recipe that will change any muggle’s life forever. butterbeer. it all started a month ago when my friend kristen introduced me to this website.  i am now a daily reader.  back up a few weeks ago, and they featured a butterbeer recipe from this blog, which i am also a big fan of! the only difficult part about this recipe is finding butter extract.  i finally found it at wal-mart.  if you’re unwilling to brave the deathly hallows of wal-mart, you can find it online here.  buy a LOT of it, because you WILL become addicted to this magical drink in a stein. source: bakingdom 6 12 oz. bottles of cream soda (i used a 2 liter of a&w cream soda) 3 tsp butter extract...
