I don’t think there is anything better then a loaf of fresh bread filled with melted gooey cheese and lots of bacon!  Am I right… or am I right????

This pull apart bread is so simple to make and is filled with so much flavor your family will be talking about it for weeks.  What I also love so much is that you can make numerous different versions of pull apart bread.  You can add whatever fancies you at the time and guaranteed it will be yummilicious.

Now for me I wanted to go with shredded sharp cheddar cheese, bacon and scallion.  I melted butter, chopped up some cloves of garlic and all of it got stuffed into my sourdough loaf which I cut up in a tic-tac-toe motion.

The only bad part for me, and I do have to admit… was the anticipation of waiting until it was ready because if you know me I am a bread fiend and the smell that was coming out of my oven was making my tummy GROWL!!!!! :-)

I can’t wait to share with you all other versions of pull apart bread I got running through my mind…

BUT until then enjoy some yummy, do not count the calories you are eating, bacon cheddar pull apart bread… Hey it’s on me!!!! :-D

Walmart Steak Grill-Off! #steakover

29 Apr 2013 In: Reviews

IMG_0619

My family and I are so fortunate to live in sunny Florida.  Living here gives us the opportunity to be able to grill out any time of the year… well at least the majority of the year. Lately of course this weather has been acting kinda wacky but none the less, my husband and I are always trying to find some way to use our grill, whether its throwing chicken, veggies, skewers, or steak on.

There’s something about the ease of just going outside by our lake and sitting watching the food grill out while you relax… :-) Now we absolutely love a good steak.  I think we vary on how we make our steaks.  For example I used to think that when grilling steak I should always marinate it with tons of seasoning… but one of my favorite ways to season a steak is with a little sea salt, black pepper, olive oil, garlic and rosemary.

I decided to get a few premium ribeye steaks from Walmart’s meat department and have a fun little grill off… I wanted to try two different varieties of marinating the steak and see which one my family preferred.

Now my husband has this thing with his meat having to be cooked well-done and no matter what he always likes to add A1 sauce on top…. How horrible!  I on the other hand like a steak that is juicy, medium and perfect on the inside.  A well done steak is just heartbreaking… I tell him all the time. :-)

Ok back to the grill-off…

A balanced breakfast with Yopa!Yogurt

Yopa Greek yogurt is a delicious, new addition to my healthy lifestyle. Thanks to Yopa for sponsoring this post!

I try to workout everyday.  But after working out I try to give my body fuel to make it last through the day.  Now there are a number of things I rotate in my diet, but yogurt is such a great choice because of the nutrients it gives my body.  One of the most tastiest things I love to add my yogurt is granola.  I love a little crunch with my Yopa!  When asked to try Yopa! and see how it fits in my busy schedule I jumped at it.

Living an active lifestyle has definitely been very important in my life especially when it comes to my kids and because I apparently am not getting any younger I have to take care of the body I have.  If I don’t then who will…

Yopa! Yogurt is an authentic Greek yogurt, that is non-fat and made with no artificial flavors or ingredients.  Did you know that Yopa! is also Vegetarian and Kosher.  Yopa! also offers a variety of different flavors and the convenience of different toppings for each flavor.  How fun is that!

Homemade Fried Oreos®

fried oreos

Are you ever in the mood for something just sinfully good to eat?

I mean there are times times in my life when I just crave being really naughty and eating something that I know that I just shouldn’t…

I’m sure that you guys have been to a carnival at some point in time and at every carnival what do they have a booth filled with fried foods.  These Fried Oreos® are just one of the many sinful treats they offer.  Even restaurants are offering these babies as a dessert option…  Actually one of my sisters and brother’s favorite restaurant is Prime 112 in Miami and they have them on there dessert menu and of course they all ordered them, and can you believe I didn’t even eat any of them… I actually indulged in their Bread Pudding–I am not even going to begin to talk about how good that is right now– back to the topic of Fried Oreos®.


IMG_0424

Now at the beginning I was a little skeptical I mean my sisters and brother used to always ask me, “Hey, have you tried Fried Oreos®?”  I used to always say I just want my Oreos® with a tall glass of milk…

So I started thinking after many days passing and my curiosity of these babies tasting,  I knew I needed to try my hand at making them.  Let’s just say that when I surprised my kids from school that day they though I was their Hero! :-)  The way to my ids hearts are sooooo to their stomachs! hahaha…

They are so simple and easy to make.  I mean all you do is dip oreo cookies in pancake batter and then fry them I mean who can’t do that!  I think we all can… Just make sure that when you do you have a nice tall glass of milk next to you because these bad boys are SWEET!

Are you ready to try YOUR hand at making some Fried Oreos®?!!! Let’s Go!

Cajun Jambalaya Pasta

Spiciness is my middle name!

OK… so maybe spiciness is not my middle name, my actual middle name is Nadine… but for those that now me my middle name should be Spiciness or Spicy, and not just because of my personality, :-) but also because I love cooking and eating with some fire, heat!

Do you guys remember when I received a big box of juicy plump deliciously red tomatoes?  If you guys follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter then I know you saw this picture… The Florida Tomato Committee is grant-funded and are always fresh and of course grown in Florida. :-)

 

IMG_0342

Well, Yes I had the pleasure of being asked by the Florida Tomato Committee to create a recipe that included these beauties.  Now if you all know me I love getting a chance to create and play around in the kitchen… especially when my creation is nailed on the head and a winner.  This Cajun Jambalaya Pasta was definitely that… a winner!

You can find this Cajun Jambalaya Pasta Recipe on FloridaTomatoes.org, but for now enjoy the lovely creation process….

Green Velvet Waffles with Cream Cheese Glaze

Spring is always the perfect time to experiment with colors and flavors.  I think its so much fun trying to come up with different breakfast recipes that can be made for any day of the week especially holidays.  You already know about my love for breakfast and you also should already know my love for red velvet…

Do you guys remember my Red Velvet Pancakes, or maybe my Pink Velvet Pancakes…?

Yea, these babies are just like those but 1–they are green, and 2–they are waffles.  But the steps are pretty much the same.  With these waffles though I added a cream cheese glaze that I drizzled on top.

Green Velvet Waffles with Cream Cheese Glaze

Are you ready to get your green on… I’ll stop chatting so yo can start cooking :-)

redlobstercheddarbiscuits

There was a time in my life when I was in college I used to work at The Gap.  I worked their for two years after graduating High School.  On my lunch break I would always run over to Red Lobster for a plate of their famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  I know that’ all I would get, I absolutely love them… have you ever had them before?

Well these babies are laced with garlic, butter and cheddar cheese with fluffy insides, golden brown bottoms and salty, crunchy tops.  They are perfection honestly.  Kind of addicting actually…

Bunny Chow

bunny chow

Spring is here and Easter is around the corner.  Bunny chow is such a fun creative Easter snack that kids of all ages can make.  This bunny chow recipe is just like the popular white trash snack mix.  Have you heard of white trash snacks?  Well its pretty much a mix of whatever yo have in your pantry and mixed with melted white chocolate… pretty simple, huh!

This version of snack mix is made with pretzel sticks, a mix of chocolate chips, lucky charms cereal, crushed Oreos, melted white chocolate and of course Easter sprinkles.  It only took 15 minutes and was enjoyed by all.  I think I saw Julian eat half the bowl…

Just make sure if you start eating this, its sweet so eat in doses…. :-)
