Chocolate Cookie Bars

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I have the perfect sweet treat! Rice crispy treats are absolutely the best lunch box treat. Gooey marshmallow, warm butter and crispy cereal. They are easy to make and easy to eat. If you are like me, you have a chocolate obsession! My hubby and I love chocolate sandwich…

The Crispiest Onion Rings

Saying I love onion rings, well, that is an understatement. I love these things. I am also very particular about my onion rings as well and so being picky about them made me figure out how to perfect them! These are similar to a popular chain restaurant, Red Robin, but in my own (and un-biased…

8 Minute Potato Skins

If you own a microwave, you have dinner! Every student faces the dilemma of what to eat for dinner. Fast-food, take out, TV dinners or another bowl of Ramen? This is my solution to the quick and easy meal and it is all done in the microwave! This is relatively healthy compared to the stuff…

Jumbo Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

Better than Oreos/ Whipping Cream Cookies

Bleu Cheese Chips

I am obsessed with The Cap City Diner, owned by none other than Cameron Mitchell. Being 4,200 miles away from the nearest restaurant I had to learn how to make my own Bleu Cheese Chips.

The Greatest (and easiest) Chicken Ever

I often say that this meal was the one that made my husband marry me! It is so simple, it is just mayonnaise coating a chicken breast that is dredged in Italian bread crumbs. It is so moist, tender and scrumptious. This go around, I made a variation to the traditional “Greatest Chicken Ever”. In…

Chili & Everything You Can Do With It!

Chili is one of those comfort foods that we all know and love. Being an Ohio girl, there are 2 kinds of Chili in the world….Traditional Chili and Cincinnati Style Chili. Today, it is the traditional style chili! But it is all the fabulous things that you can make with Chili that puts this over the edge!  …

Buckeyes

Being from Ohio and living in a place where Ohio State Football is a religion, there is something to be said about the “state candy”. Well, my Grandma, Sally Martin, made the best buckeyes around. Being a good Ohio native, it would be a tragedy not to share it! You will need: 3/4 Margarine (melted)…
