Need a midnight snack? Or anytime snack for that matter, my cookies and cream peanut butter might just knock your socks off :)

They were big boys. They were round... good handfuls. I've never met them before, so I was a bit shy introducing myself.

When it comes to unusual food names the British definitely take the top prize. Care for some bubble and squeak or spotted dick? How about toad-in-the hole?

Continuing on with the asparagus theme, I cooked up a somewhat unique breakfast dish. Hashbrown topped with a fried egg and asparagus with an asparagus puree to use as a sauce.

Is it "en-dive" or "on-deev"? Would you believe there is only one correct pronunciation?

Looking back on my recipes of late, one would never know I am supposed to be a healthy food blogger. Iâ€™m chalking my recent spate of less than slim recipes to the ultimate depths of winter burn out; and stating here and now that I promise Iâ€™ll get back on the good-food track.

I totally have your dinner covered tonight. You must make these turkey burgers, not only because they are incredibly simple, fast and delicious but because they take feta to a whole new level.

PB Blossoms are little sugar-dipped peanut butter cookies with a Hershey's Kiss perched perfectly on top. You've probably eaten them...and you might just have the recipe in your arsenal.

I've been wanting to come up with a healthy recipe for Chinese chicken salad. I love the brightness of oranges and tangerines in salad, and combining their juice with some Asian ingredients makes a flavorful dressing. But all to often when ordering an Asian chicken salad in restaurants, the salad dressing is loaded with sugar (as is the chicken marinade) and the the salad itself has mountains of friend wonton strips piled on top.

These little babies are both fun and easy to make. Oh hell, all babies are both fun and easy to make, for the men at least.

The combination of orange, chocolate & cinnamon is irresistible. While boiling plain white rice for dinner, I thought maybe I can try this combination with rice. So out came another pot to cook a cup of rice with the juice of two oranges and some water.

So lets talk Pancakes. Yesterday was National Pancake Day and Iâ€™m not sure who or what organization deemed March 1st as a day to eat pancakes, but Iâ€™m not going to complain as I love homemade pancakes. So, when Shauna over at Gluten Free Girl pinged me, along with a number of gluten free bloggers

The mother of the pineapples is actually Brazil. One of the desserts I made up was this delicious raw pineapple dessert. Itâ€™s pretty easy to make, tastes like a warm day on the beach and is the perfect ending for any exotic dinner party. Yum!

One of my favorite things about spring rolls is that you can mix and match them any way you like. There are so many ways to make them! Below I added the spring rolls we made and a few suggestions for other variations. So, experiment awayâ€¦and let me know your favorite combination!

I am a huge fan of popcorn have come to believe that are at least a gazillion ways to flavor it. We have an air popper so that is how I always make ours, though you could easily pop it on the stovetop as well. In this case I popped the popcorn into a large bowl, then added a mixture of butter, Parmesan, paprika and freshly cracked black pepper.

I cast out an informal twitter poll soliciting thoughts on the best and worst parts of a split. Shockingly, the least liked aspect of the dish was also its namesake- the banana. From all the responses, I gleaned that variability in texture would be welcome, the banana needed to be altered, and while all the flavors were ok by most, it was just too much dessert if you were to actually finish one. I took those lessons to heart and created a banana split using, and hopefully improving, all the components of the original.

Now that both Jason and I are gluten free, I am thinking about making my own bread. I made the spinach bread again recently, and I thought, why not make a pancake? I can still make sandwichesâ€¦

Anyway, when I saw Ellie make this Buttered Popcorn Ice Cream and Stef make these Popcorn Cupcakes, I was instantly inspired to make something with buttered popcorn. So the two things on my list were popcorn macarons and/or popcorn cupcakes. First up, CUPCAKES!

I decided to make fruit tarts simply because I found the cutest and yummiest strawberries at this marketplace. This is not your typical fruit tart - this one is a light version made with fresh whipped cream instead of pastry cream but it is nothing short of deliciousness!

This orzo dish is filled with lots of wonderful flavors and textures from the roasted red peppers and tomatoes. It gets a fresh, herby flavor from the parsley. I adapted the recipe to use a spicy Italian pork sausage rather than the mild turkey sausage called for, but you can use whatever kind you prefer.
