Now I know that we are knee deep in summer weather, the sun is blazing, the humidity is off the rocket with no sign of cooling down happening anytime soon. Sometimes we just need comfort food to warm our soul.
That’s how I feel when I make risotto. The creaminess of this dish is the perfect way to add comfort to any long stressful day. I remember the first time I ever tried risotto. It was at a little restaurant in Miami called Grazie and we would go special occasions. The food is so delicious just thinking about it makes my stomach start to grumble. My dad had ordered their Seafood Risotto… let’s just say the moment they brought the dish to the table the smell of that dish was out of this world. I think I jumped into the plate before my dad had a chance to. From then on it has been my absolute favorite dish to order and make at home.
I think so many are scared to make risotto because of the amount of time it takes to make and it requires you to have patience. Funny, thing… I’m really not a patient person but in the kitchen cooking I am… weird huh! 🙂 Read the rest of this entry »
Are you excited yet?
How about now…
Now I know you are…
There is something so sinful and ultimately decadent with this dessert that after one bite you find yourself eating another and another. Oreo Cheesecake Bars, just saying the name makes my mouth water. (cute huh!)
Combining my two loves Oreos, which if you have been reading this little blog of mine you already know has been a favorite of mine since he beginning of time, and cheesecake. Luscious, creamy cheesecake!
YUM!!!!! Read the rest of this entry »
What are S’mOreos you may ask???
Well, they are just Oreos® + chocolate bar + a big marshmallow = YUMMINESS!!!
I have never been a huge fan of smores… I mean I like them and I love chocolate but I have to really be in the mood for them. Now Oreos®, that’s a completely different story. I’m a nut for Oreos®!
My kids they absolutely LOVE smores. I actually don’t believe there is a dessert that they wouldn’t eat… HA! They get that from their momma 🙂
Every year if your like my husband and children you wait impatiently for the month of February to roll by because of one thing and one thing only… GIRL SCOUT COOKIE SEASON!!!!
I mean its every where you turn little adorable girl scouts asking you to buy some scumpdiliumptious cookies that you know you can only once a year. I mean I know people who buy tons of boxes and store them in their freezer so they can have them for later in the year.
It’s crazy! 🙂 But a GREAT crazy!!!!
Do you think if you wrap anything in bacon it would taste good???
I think so… I mean who doesn’t love tater tots? Brown sugar? and bacon???
These little bite size appetizers are so addicting once you pop one in your mouth 5 minutes later you will see half the bowl finished.
All it is are tater tots wrapped with a small piece of cheese, then wrapped in BACON and rolled in brown sugar…. YUM! Read the rest of this entry »
As I sit here after having two weeks off of work, spending time with my kiddies and just taking 2014 all in I realize that each and every year I make such a huge deal with resolutions and what I need to change or fix.
You all know what I mean, “I need to lose weight, I need to be more active, I need to make more money, I nee to spend more time with my family, I want to strengthen my faith…” the list is pretty endless actually.
Today in church one of our pastors spoke about how a “New Year” so many want a “New You”. One of the most important things we fail to realize is that it’s not a New You we should be worrying about… We should really want to better ourselves not change who we are. Allow yourself to leave all the baggage, pain, whatever you felt was holding you down or back in 2014 and look ahead to 2015 to being reborn.
One of the passages that was shared this morning was:
” Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17
To 2015, may it be filled with laughter, love & life!
It’s a brand new year, so many fun and exciting things are ahead. Trying to remember to cherish every moment with my kids because they are getting too big too fast!
Wishing your family a very Happy New Year! Thank you for taking time out of your day each week to read ThatsSoYummy. I can’t wait to share so much more with you all this year!

Ahhhhhh, the weather is finally changing around these parts, I mean when you finally get a chance to bust out your boots and jacket you know its a good day in Florida. I am so ready for the weather change and for it finally feel like fall… I mean Thanksgiving is just around the corner for pete’s sakes.
On of my most favorite things to do when it starts to get chilly is cuddle up on the couch, my scented candles lit, with a good book and hot chocolate… Mmmm hot chocolate. You all know how comforting it is to cuddle with a warm blanket, (sigh)! Since we are on the topic of things that comfort our hearts, Food plays such a big role in that.

School ‘s back… Can you believe that? Where has the summer gone? I think I actually saw summer hop on a plane and FLY by.
Yesterday marked the day I have a 7th grader and a 4th grader… That’s crazy, along with that a 7 month old. That means that dinner has got to be easy and stress free. Here are a few of my favorite back to school recipes that I think will make dinner a little easier for you.
